I need help. I saw that Yosemite runs much better with beam sync disabled, but I wonder if possible enable quartz composito, GJ and 2D Extreme on VM.

Does anybody know how to get this working with VMWare Workstation 11 and Yosemite?

It would be good to be able to run it in full screen with the same resolution as the host PC.

I read whole 15 pages, but still not 3D acceleration and this a shame, i think that there are plenty developers whose would like to teste there SW in virtual machine.

 

   I my case, i would like to test Unity3D games, if would be at least 10 percent of perfromance of physical machine it would be good enough, for most of test cases.

Hello!

 

I'm trying to use the VMWare display driver in a virtual MacOS/X instance in QEmu (KVM) running MacOS/X .

I known, that the orginal driver is not supported anymore, so I'm trying to use the VMWare Fusion 7.0 driver (VMwareGfx.kext).

 

But the driver is not used and I tried many things.

 

The kernel seems to load the driver, but cannot use it?!

 

  gfx: Loaded com.vmware.kext.VMwareGfx Version 0230.49.77 Build 2304977 (Nov 20 2014 14:49:06)

  gfx: svga: Start: Traces not available

  gfx: gfx: start: svgaDev.Start failed.

 

I specified the "-vga vmware" option when starting qemu, but it makes no difference to the "-vga std" option.

 

Any tips what to check or to try?

Or maybe there is an existing manual available?

 

(I tried the old and unsupported Svga2 driver (1.2.5), but it hangs during boot.)

I used the latest 7.1 VMware tools but the performance is just as bad as before sadly on Yosemite. Without a new VGA driver I'm afraid the performance will never be as it was on Mavericks

You need to install JasF's beamoff.app to disable beamsync.
