  1. Lag seems to be limited to Skylake systems and newer based on everything we've seen so far.
  2. Great job getting things updated, I know it's a lot of work and IPS isn't always forgiving! Suggestion: Could the padding around signatures and the heart button, and the line height within signatures, be reduced to be more in line with the previous site? It really makes topics a lot harder to read than previously.
  3. Every time I install an OS update I get errors unless I physically remove my Windows drive first, you may be having a similar issue!
  4. My real Mac had this happen as well, about 4 reboots. Part of it was installing a firmware update.
  5. Clover General discussion

    You can set boot background color to any hex value using NVRAM, see here: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/guide-black-boot-screen-white-apple-logo-on-unsupported-macs-boot-efi-hack.1751446/page-7#post-22742480
  6. I've been having some problems with protected video playback working with Shiki in iTunes and Safari (running 10.13.3). What's happening is if I use boot-arg shikigva=12, playing back protected content crashes iTunes (TV show) and Safari (Amazon/Hulu) after a few garbled frames. However, I can play back a protected file in QuickTime without issue. If I use boot-arg shikigva=28, playing back protected content does not crash iTunes (TV show) but it will not play, and Safari (Amazon/Hulu) does not crash but they also will not play. However, I can play Trailers and play back a protected file in QuickTime without issue. Has anyone had a similar issue and found a solution? My hardware: First in signature below. Sams-Desktop:~ sam$ Downloads/VDADecoderChecker GVA info: Successfully connected to the Intel plugin, offline Gen9 Hardware acceleration is fully supported My config: IGPU enabled in BIOS / 64M; PCIE primary Hardware acceleration is working Latest Lilu, Shiki, NvidiaGraphicsFixup Renamed GFX0 to IGPU and HECI to IMEI ig-platform-id 0x19120001 Thanks.
  7. I've noticed in High Sierra, my GTX 1080 frequently fails to initialize properly waking up from sleep. This happened occasionally in Sierra, but seems more frequent in High Sierra. Has anyone else run into this, or know what to look for to find the root cause?
  8. Snow Leopard updates

    The same files may have been updated in each version which would make the files larger as it would be essentially duplicated if you added all of the updates together. Doing a combo update is ideal because then you get all of the changes in one clean package.
  9. In my testing, different port combinations yielded different results. I have 2 displayport monitors and 1 hdmi working with no black screen, but if I use other combinations I end up with at least one screen black.
  10. Clover General discussion

    I've noticed this as well, it seems to make the menu go very wide if I first access the main config menu before accessing the spacebar kext inject menu. I'm on r4243 (and EFI not legacy).
  11. Updated and all is well. Doesn't fix the black screen issue I and others have run into (however I do have a workaround thanks to some trial and error and cyberdevs that may not help every scenario). Installed with SIP enabled (using Clover boot menu to temporarily disable without plist edits) and Clover AGDP patch, and didn't need EmuVariableEfi, NVWebDriverLibValFix, or NvidiaGraphicsFixup.
  12. Interestingly, if I unplug the DVI, the monitor that is currently plugged into DP goes blank. I can't find a combination of ports that gives me no black screen on at least one monitor.
  13. Interesting, I am using 1 DP, 1 HDMI to DVI, and 1 HDMI. I'll try switching one of them out for another DP.
  14. Has anyone gotten a triple-monitor setup to work in High Sierra? One of my displays is black (with signal and mouse cursor) but it is not using DP. And, depending on which displays are plugged in, different displays turn black with signal as well.
  15. Slow resume Hack after 10-15 min idle time

    I had this issue as well. Try this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/320807-iographicsaccelerator2-sierra-lag/?p=2413421
