    Does anyone else play UO on a Mac and on Parallels?

    I'm playing Parallels 8 and can run it fine in 'isolate mac from windows' mode, but wonder whether I can run it in coherence mode? Anyone been able to do this and if so how? Thanks

    I don't know anything about parallels, but I run UO on mac through wine. And I can run it in a window along side other mac applications without issue.

    Yeah I used to run it just fine in Crossover, but I've had to buy Parallels for some software for the wife, and Parallels and Crossover don't quite sit side by side too well. I also noticed in Crossover that deep sea tiles never used to show up - always black - where in parallels using isolate windows from mac mode they could be seen, so I'd like to stick with just one Windows emulator if I can, but that might not be possible!

    I could never get it to work that well in coherence mode, but it's been so long since I tried that I can't remember what was going wrong lol.
