    Lag problems running on parallels

    Hey guys, started up SW:TOR for the first time last night on my mid 2010 15" mac book pro last night and it worked fine but a few hours into playing this morning it got really laggy and nothing I have done has changed that. I've got swtor at its lowest graphics settings and windowed.

    Here are my specs:
    Processor 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    Graphics Intel HD Graphics 288 MB

    In terms of parallels settings, I've got 4 gs of RAM, 254 mb of video memory, and 2 CPUs appropriated with vertical synching and 3D on.

    I'm not skilled enough with computers to know how much stuff I should let parallels be able to access to make SW:TOR run smooth etc. or any other reasons this might be happening, so any help would be much appreciated

    Was your computer running anything in the background when it dropped in performance? Also, your mac overheating could also be a cause. With those low specs, it might have been working overtime to give you nice performance, but then eventually got 'tired'
