How change VRAM size for VMware SVGA video adapter in VMware Workstation 8? Try to edit .vmx of my VM

svga.autodetect = "TRUE"
svga.vramSize = "536870912"

Only 128 MB available. How get all 256MB?

Try change svga.autodetect = "FALSE" and use all this value:

svga.vramSize = "16777216" #VRAM 16MB
svga.vramSize = "33554432" #VRAM 32MB
svga.vramSize = "67108864" #VRAM 64MB
svga.vramSize = "134217728" #VRAM 128MB
svga.vramSize = "268435456" #VRAM 256MB
svga.vramSize = "536870912" #VRAM 512MB
work only 16-128MB. Host have x7970 with 3072 MB, video memory. Don't work, only 128MB maximum.

That's the maximum you can assign to the VRAM.
