rdp games

hi guys can anyone help.
i wish to play football manager 2010 over RDP on win7 ultimate (host) to win 7 premium (client) machines. however whenever i launch the game nothing happens on my client screen and when i try to relaunch it im told its already running. it does run on the host outside of RDP so its a RDP issue is there any resolution or am i simply unable to play football manager 2010 over RDP?

Remote Desktop Protocol is great for system maintenance or other simple tasks...but I cannot imagine that with the technology and compression used to remotely display the screen that it would have the power and the performance to really run any game that was more advanced than Solitaire or MineSweeper.

FM10 over RDP works pretty well for me - slightly laggy but nothing I can't deal with.

The issue I do have is when a second users logs on to the host W7 PC. FM10 stops responding/the picture stops being sent over RDP.

I have used the "hack" from Missing Remote to enable concurrent users sessions and it works like a dream - except for FM!

No other apps stop responding and in fact I am posting this from my XP laptop via RDP to my Windows7 PC whilst my missus is happily also logged on (probably to Facebook!).

Any ideas?
