    Will this work or do I need something special? I am currently downloading the client from the website since I already have an account. Am I going to be disappointed? Thanks guys...

    So I tried and I get this error message....

    "Unable to initialize 3D output. Please verify that you have installed DirectX 8 and an updated video driver."

    I read somewhere else that parallels supported directx 8 so why doesnt this work after I download it?

    Parallels only offers games that work with Direct X 8.1. Does your game require or automatically update to the latest DX?

    Guild Wars is backwards compatible with various versions of Direct X 8, but not the implementation in Parallels build 4128, it has broken graphics. I am about to try 4560 to see if that works any better. Don't forget you have to turn on Direct X support in the Parallels options first, it's off by default and GW will give you the error about Direct X if you haven't turned it on.
