Default PR:BF2 in VirtualBox?

Hi folks.

I have a Debian Jessie x64 with a very nice setup in VirtualBox for a Windows 7 Pro.

5GB of dedicated RAM
2 cores dedicated of my Intel I7 4500U (note: VT-X acceleration and Nested Paging in VirtualBox)
256MB (maximium allowed in VirtualBox) of my AMD M240 (1GB) (note: with 2D and 3D acceleration in VB)

So I installed and updated my PR with 0 problems, and I get this error:

Error1324: The selected display mode is not supported. Please update display mode in options... bla bla.

In options this display mode is the only one listed.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot.

I run parallels desktop with a windows 8 vm on my iMac.

Have you managed to play PR on your VM yet?

Am trying to run PR through VMWare Fusion on my 2013 Macbook Pro 13 with 2,6 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 and Intel Iris 1536 MB graphics card, everything works but it's slow and choppy as hell even on lowest settings - unplayable unfortunately. It worked for VirtualBox too but was too slow to even load a map. I wonder if Parallels Desktop would make it run smoother...?

I would make a Bootcamp partition but I only have one internal SSD of 500 GB, and need to keep OSX for work. Partitioning and installing Windows would be too risky for me.

Quick update:

It seems my VM is just recognizing my crappy integrated GPU Intel and not the AMD. I am working on it. I will update this thread when possible.

Playing PR on the Macbook now, using Parallels Desktop 12. Medium settings, everything works super smooth, slightly low fps, going from 25-50 but totally playable. Zero crashes, zero problems. Can totally recommend Parallels to anyone who doesn't have the possibility of using Bootcamp. It's almost native.

If you turn your shadows down, you should break 60

Is it when you run PRBF2 or something from VirtualBox itself? I guess you've tried to install DirectX and all dependencies?
