Parallels Compatible Gaming

 

Parallels

I just updated my parallels installation to try out some games.As my previous post trying to compile a list of games compatible to the Intel 945/950 gml motherboard is hot, i would like to follow it up with a compilation of games that run well on parallels emulation.The initial list on the Parallels site is encouraging, but i would still like to see more.It is a bit limiting when considering that Parallels is compatible with only DirectX 8.1 games so would have problems with most new games.Yet i am sure after reading the comments on my previous post that there’s more than what meets the eye.So people if you have a game working fine on Parallels please feel free to add it in the comments – would be very helpful for avid gamers who are on a Mac 😉 (what an oxymoron that was..!)

List of games that Parallels says is completely compatible :

  • Alien Arena 2007
  • Baldur’s Gate 2
  • Bus Driver
  • Call of Duty
  • Counter Strike 1.6
  • Descent 3
  • Doom 3
  • Dungeon Siege 2
  • Far Cry
  • GORE – Ultimate Soldier
  • Half Life 1
  • Half Life 2
  • Hitman Codename 47
  • Hitman Silent Assassin
  • Hitman Contracts
  • IL-2 Shturmovik
  • King Pin
  • Max Payne
  • Max Payne 2
  • Neverball
  • Prey
  • Quake 1 GL
  • Quake 2
  • Quake 3
  • Quake 4
  • Return to Castle Wolfenstein
  • Scorched 3D
  • Serious Sam
  • Serious Sam – the Second Encounter
  • SiN

Mobile Intel® 915GM/GMS, 910GML – Compatible games

I am one of the many (i guess) who is stuck on a laptop with the Mobile Intel 915/910 chipset. But i do like to play games and try to squeeze the best i can from my graphics support ;-). I checked with the Intel website to find a list of games that run decently on the chipset, their list i believe is no longer or rarely updated, so i decided to make a list of my own with the help of the community of gamers (inclusive of the above games. The following games are compatible (meaning they are ‘playable’ -no funky settings, but just decent frame rate and gameplay) with the Mobile Intel 915/910 chipset.If you have the above Intel chipset and have played games apart from the ones mentioned here please be kind enough to contribute to the list via the comments section.

A comprehensive listing of all tips, tricks & suggestion for gaming on the Intel9x platform is available at the Google group.

Update:

This discussion has been moved to a separate Google Group at http://groups.google.com/group/intel9x-gaming http://9xxssf.info/. Thanks for all the comments.
