Hello It has been a long time since I have been on this forum. I have recently gotten windows 7 and have run the iso on Virtual Box. If you are not aware this application is a pc emulation software. I got this so I could play pc games that I was missing out on using my mac. However, upon staring a game I was met with a "unable to create 3d image" error message. I tried other games but to no avail. If anyone could help me an would happen to have a solution that would be great.

Re: Unable to create 3d image

In VirtualBox, how much memory have you allocated to video? Also it would be helpful to know the hardware on which you're running all this, and the game(s) in question.

Note that VirtualBox is not a very good solution for 3D gaming, and I doubt you'll have much luck with any modern graphics-intensive titles. You'd be better off booting into Windows directly. Or picking up a cheap used PC.
