Does anyone have any luck with this graphic card and ML-DP4? Or am I on my own?

Hi terrorgen

I have a Point of View, Nvidia GT220 2048 Mb working 100% in ML DP4.

Method as follow;
Extract the Video Card's rom in Windows.
(There's a few methods that can be used to achieve this. I can not remember what I used unfortunately. You will have to Google)

Rename the file with the .rom extension as follow;
Details for my card is as follow;
Vendor ID = 10de
Device ID = 0a20
so that the file looks as follow;
10de_0a20.rom

You will have to get your cards Vendor and Device ID's and implement them as I did above.

Place this file in /Extra in ML DP4.
Install Enoch's Chameleon Bootloader r1999. (Works good for me)
Ensure that you use the following boot flags: GrahicsEnabler=Yes, UseNvidiaROM=Yes and VBIOS=Yes

Dual Monitor, Mirror displays, Resolution and QE/CI all working.

Attached is some screen shots.

Realy hope this helps you.

NOTE: This method has been working ever-since Snow Leopard.

Good luck
Regards

If I am transgressing any rules in posting the above, humble apologies in advance.

Here is an easier method;
Just found and tested this a few minutes ago;

Install attached kext in /Extra/Extensions.
Repair permissions and reboot.
It unfortunately states Unknown Nvidia Card else all is working 100%.
Playing Call of Duty 5 flawlessly.

Keep Chameleon settings as in above post.

That's it!

Enjoy!
