    i just bought a macbook and i installed vmware fusion 1.0, later i found out that it cant run programs/games like maplestory because it doesnt support 3d, but from what i heard later versions of vmware do support 3d, only i cant find a free 30 days trial for newer versions, does anybody know a answer for my problem?

    vmware version that does have 3d and wich i can try for free? link plx?
    tryout version of parallels? link plz?
    any 3d for my version of vmware?
    other solution?

    and does anybody know how to undo partitions i made on the hd?

    Try and see if it works with Crossover...

    You will have better luck running 3D programs in full screen mode. See here.

    You can delete your BootCamp partition with the BootCamp assistant you installed it with :)

    BTW what hardware are you using? And hope that 3D support in VMWare will improve enough to satisfy your needs sooner rather than later...

    OK, as with all Macbooks (and Minis for that matter) the graphics are ****** integrated GMA950 unfortunately, so don't expect too much from gaming.
