Hello, I want to start a discussion about games on the Mac. I have the machine in my signature and thought I would have a go with playing games on virtual machines again. I installed my current copy of Windows XP Pro 32 bit I own into bootcamp and then trialled the latest Parallels demo and Fusion demo. My test game is Crysis as I love it and, frankly, if that works then anything will! To my surprise Parallels gave an almost playable experience, far better the my previous Mac could do, but it did lag and at one point crashed. I could also not assign my Razer Orochi mouse buttons any command in the game. I then used Fusion 3.1, I discovered this as well, useless. I got very severe multi bright colour graphics corruption. I then found out after googling it uses a maximum of 128mb VRAM in Windows XP which cannot be increased. Crysis needs 256mb. So onto my questions: Windows 7, is it REALLY worth upgrading to this? Will it give any real term games performance in bootcamp or any virtual machine over my XP? As I read Fusion will use 256mb VRAM in Windows 7 and Vista but that games still lag? Virtual machines. Has anyone played a graphically intense game in Windows 7 on Fusion 3.1 yet? Did it work? And does anyone know what we can expect from Parallels or Fusion in the future in terms of games performance? Crysis is the one I want to play in my Mac OS if possible, all my other games will most likely work in a VM or will work under Crossover. I am asking for advice as their is not a lot of information out there in relation to Fusion 3.1 or any clues as to what Parallels 6 will do. I should also mention I use Steam so will have those games to play, once the driver issues are resolved, so it's another reason to play games in my Mac OS environment and not bootcamp.
