    Hey,
    I have tried fixing performance problems with an old game by trying different things but nothings seems to work.

    The game in question is Anarchy Online (AO), which if I remember correctly it is a DX8 or DX9 game.
    The game lags horribly in my Parallels VM when doing certain things, like entering the transport hub, which is called The Grid.

    If I use the their New Engine which is DX10 the games runs better but crashes randomly, their fault it seems as others also have this problem.

    I would prefer the old engine since it is way more stable, I just can not understand why that graphics engine runs so much worse on Parallels.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Did you get any error/warning during or before crash?
    Are you using the Parallels Desktop 15 and Mac OS Catalina?

    Like I said the crash seems to be the fault of the game creator, and only happens with the New Gen Engine.
    But the Old Gen Engine has terrible performance in Parallels, it does not if using BootCamp.

    And yes I am runnning PD15 and macOS Catalina.
