    I have a couple of older little games that have little bits of video in them These worked on 2.5 and before fine.. In 3.0 they dont show the video only a black box. This is in Vista nd XP Pro under parallels . I tried disabling the DirectX support in the Parallels options and no go So they only way to fix it was to go to the Windows control panel and choose troubleshooting and drop the acceleration to zero and then the video sequences play..
    ow why should this be ? So I have found 3.0 is actually worse. Not very happy about this at all. I hope these and a bunch of other little bugs are sorted out soon.
