I didn't make it!
I've been playing and loving BC for years now, but I recently upgraded my desktop to an iMac. While it's a great machine, I haven't been able to get BC to work on the windows side of it. I can install it and load it, but when I get to the option screens, the text is now pink blocks and symbols. I remember which buttons are which, so I was able to enter the quickbattle mode, but the same thing happens there. The ships are shadows and the screen is green and pink. I have directX 10 installed along with the 1.1 patch, so I'm not quite sure why this is happening. From what I know, the Parallels Windows partition is supposed to be a fully functional version of Windows.
These are my system specs:
2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB memory 320GB hard drive ATI Radeon HD 2600 PRO with 256MB memory
Is there something up with my video card? Any advice would be welcome, otherwise I'll have to play it on my laptop, which would not be pleasant. = )
Oh for Cryin' out loud!

yeah, they say that, but it's not, it's still a shell program, BC may not be able to run on a Virtual OS
