    Try enabling hardware acceleration in VMWare by selecting the VM's settings and clicking on display and the hardware acceleration checkbox. That may work, otherwise you'll probably have to boot into Windows directly (bootcamp).

    Check box won't check.

    I am trying to find a decent torrent of BootCamp....how does BootCamp work anyway, when you boot comp it asks you which OS to boot to?

    Thanks all

    You're gonna have to use Boot Camp if your computer doesn't support it. All 10.4 support for Boot Camp has been discontinued too I believe.

    Chances are the limited support for DirectX in Fusion wouldn't have made a difference. There are only a couple games it supports right now. That's the biggest downfall of the product at this point.

    So i was able to check accelerate graphics thru Fusion

    The game opened and played, but it ran a little laggy and buggy

    Will attempt BootCamp
