In Topic: Improving Sierra performance in VMWare?

22 March 2017 - 08:21 AM

Just install VMwareGfx.kext from darwin.iso 8.5.5.

I downloaded darwin.iso 8.5.3 posted by MSoK to double check.

The one from 8.5.3 contains the 2D Accelerator code.

In 8.5.5, it's been removed.

There's noticeable shrinkage in the size of VMwareGfx binary (in MacOS subfolder.)  The size of 8.5.3 is 304504.  The size of 8.5.5 is 106992.

Good to know, thanks Zenith. Is there anything that needs to be done other than installing new tools? For me it seems like graphics have actually degraded over last 2 or 3 tool releases...

In the latest VMwareGfx.kext from Fusion 8.5.5 VMware have discontinued the 2D-Acceleration code, and graphics performance is better now.

referring to new_kernelPm_kernel_patcher.c.zip
I may accept this if someone else confirmed it working.

It does not work on my system.
Darwin 16.4
Z270 chipset
MSR 0xE2 locked in bios so need KernelPM patch.
Current KernelPM patch by RehabMan works.
With new patch I get KP.
Attached is image of KP. Sorry for botched focus.
Had to restore working Clover from Windows.

zenith432 must be using github.com/tianocore/edk2 repository which was ahead of sf.net/projects/edk2 by 2 commits at the time 4037 was checked in so calculated that the most recent github revision at that time would eventually be svn revision 24063.
