    Sad mugen 1.1b black screen problem

    so, i use macOS and i play mugen 1.1b with OpenGL via BOOTCAMP(Win 10 Pro) and everthing was PERFECT until i started using parallels desktop. when launch mugen, i get a pitch black screen with working audio(other games work fine), i have tried everything to fix it but nothing works. pls help

    When i use OpenGL, the screen is black at the main menu, char select screen and VS screen and also during battle

    When i switch the rendermode to DirectX or System, i can see:

    In Main menu:
    1.that blue line at the bottom that says press f1 for info(i use mugen megamix hd remix)
    2.I can watch battle previews

    In Char select:
    1.char icons
    2.char name and portrait(the names and portraits just overlap)
    everything else is black

    VS screen:
    1.can see char name and portrait, everything else is black

    During battle:
    1.i can see character icons on top left and right
    2.stage can be seen clearly
    3.invisible life bars
    4.some visuals are replaced by white or black boxes

    ALL AUDIO IS FINE

    i forgot to mention that i use macOS catalina and a 64bit processor.

    I think your problem is bcoz of your os, dont think mugen works on that, at least not properly.

    i tried to run mugen on a win10 virtual machine on macOS(that didn't work). However, if i install windows 10 on a single partition or startup disk, it works fine. idk why

    Well Mugen 1.1 primarily uses OpenGL (if you have set that as the rendering in the cfg file) which can cause issues on lower spec PCs that donot have newer video cards

    Only opengl or directx, you can choose in the config file.

    https://ibb.co/z2y5JXP

    when i switch to directx or system rendermode, i get this:

    Main Menu:
    https://ibb.co/mS43pHw

    Battle Preview:
    https://ibb.co/0DSMLC0

    Char Select:
    https://ibb.co/TKfCqpG

    VS Screen:
    https://ibb.co/Z8JzTHR

    Mid Game:

    Virtualization is not able to properly share full graphics acceleration. This is, and always been the case. Pretty sure you need OpenGL 2.1 to be supported for Mugen to run in GL mode and you're definitely not getting that with a software solution.

    i already have OpenGL 2.1 supported but i doesn't work, I guess i shouldn't use a virtual machine to run Mugen.
    Thanks for your help

    setting my mugen to safe mode seemed to solve the problem tho

    Safe mode uses less a less sophisticated rendering method. It doesn't support hardware scaling and some other stuff that I forget off the top of my head. It's impressive that you can even get that to run in a virtual machine, to be honest.
