    Initial thoughts

      First, thanks much for the customizable graphics memory.

       

      I've debugging disabled in the VM settings - is there a global preference I need to disable as well?  I'll turn it back on if there's a particular issue we need to track down.

       

      Attempting to run Dragon Age Origins in Windows 7 (my graphics test) works, but still shows some stuttering, and the gamma change in full screen mode is still non-functional.

       

      Otherwise, so far so good.

          Parallels has this in there current major release and IIRC was also available in the previous major version release!

            Hmmm, never went to look - it's listed as a 2014 new feature (which is why I noticed it).

             

            The inability to change gamma extends to the windows 7 control panel as well.  I haven't tried running games in a guest before, but this gamma issue seems to have been reported (but no fix) a number of times.  Unfortunately, without a workaround, it makes these games too dark to play.

             

            Since it exists in 6 too, I'll post a thread in the main forum as well.

              I was referring to Parallels not Fusion.

                Ahh, gotcha.  Thanks Woody
