Aloha!

I start this new thread cause I need help for playing TRU demo using an iMac computer. Someone can help me, please? I had VMware Fusion, a virtual machine, that allows me to use Windows XP and it's applications, but I don't know why I can't play the TRU demo. My iMac is quite new, and have all the sistems required for playing Underworld (ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro, Inter Core 2 Duo 2'4 GHz and memory 1 GB). I can install it, then when I click on the icon, the configuration screen opens and don't matter which choose I realize (predeterminated or another) that always appears the following error message: Failure to start Direct3D with the current settings. But I have the Virtual Machine configurated for DirectX 9.0.c, so... Need help!!!

Sorry, but the 3D support that is present in Vmware Fusion is not up to the task of playing TRU. Sadly, it can't handle Tomb Raider Legend either :(

I also tried the latest release of Parallels and it was able to run Tomb Raider Legend properly but so slowly as to make the game completely unplayable. I didn't bother installing the TRU demo after that because that would only be worse :(

What a pity then. So I guess, the alternative is boot camp.
