Okay guys, I have some trouble with my pager and getting on games now. I have a Mac, and wanted to know how to use BYOND on it, since my Dell is currently not working (will have to get a new hard drive when I get money for it). I saw on here, that there were multiple programs that allowed you to run windows on your Mac.
I got the disc from one of my friends, so I've been able to use windows here on my Mac. For some reason, BootCamp won't set it up, so I had to use a virtual machine, until someone could help me boot Windows on my Mac.
I got the trial version of Parallels, and downloaded it. Got my windows set up on there as one of my virtual machines, and BOOM I had windows for 30 days. Okay, so the ultimate test (for me).. Downloading BYOND, and being able to play. So I downloaded BYOND... opened the pager...aaaaaaand... BOOM it worked. Said I was online and everything. Now...playing a game... tried...then...BOOM it worked! I was able to play games on BYOND through my 30 trial of parallels 5, all just fine with no problems with the client or anything. For 30 days, I could log on and play games on BYOND... and I used those 30 days up! Lol, enjoyed being able to play some games during those 30 days... all the way until it ran out.
Soo, to what I'm confused about now.. Parallels 6..yes..6 is out now, and so I was able to get ITS trial too. I can play MMOs on it, as well as Download the BYOND client. However... here on Parallels 6, the Client doesn't WORK when having me officially ONLINE to play games. So every time I logged into a game, it made me a guest, instead of having me in there as my key. This has lowered the amount of games I'm able to play, due to not allowing guest accounts.
I'm not using a guest account, I have my own account, but it continues to log me in as a guest. I knew something was wrong when the news wasn't popping up, and three "Connection lost" popped up in the pager box. It happens everytime... but why?? Could you guys help me out with this problem? I would think it was the fact that I have a trial of Parallels, but it worked perfectly on Parallels 5. I would also think, "Hm... maybe my Windows 7 disk is faulty", but it works fine with parallels, and I can still play MMOs normally... and even play online games (flash games)and browser based MMOs better than the Mac side too :o. So I can't say the Windows disk is faulty (though I can't say it's perfect too.. since my Boot Camp won't detect it when I try to boot it for set up... keep getting the "No bootable disk available" message...hm...).
I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me out with this problem. Like, if you know what is going on, you can explain to me what exactly happened. I want to say the update for Parallels doesn't work with BYOND.. but I merely have the trial version. I guess the trial of Parallels 6 doesn't sit well with BYOND...
