Parallels 7 and Gaming

September 3, 2011 10:52:25.442

I downloaded Parallels 7 last night, and immediately tried out two games: Deus Ex: Human Revolution (which I've been playing in 6) and Fallout: New Vegas (which I played extensively in 6). Deus Ex was laggy in Parallels 6, and while it's not perfect in 7, it's much better. The real change was in FNV.

As I documented here, you had to muck around to get FNV to play at all in Parallels 6. In 7, you don't. If you did muck around, you need to remove the d3d9.dll file you tossed in for it to work in 6. The graphics look a lot better after that, too. So far, so good - I think Skyrim will be the big test though :)
