Hey

 

I have SL installed on external hdd. However, I can't get the resolution working. My friend told me that writing this:

 

"Graphics Mode"="1600x900x32"

 

when booting would do the job. I just can't find the quotation mark from my keyboard. I'm using finnish/european keyboard.

 

Any advice?

If you were typing it into Chameleon loader at prompt you would not use the quotation marks

Graphics Mode=1600x900x32

 

Here is another way to try it. Copy the com.apple.Boot.plist from Extra folder to desktop. Edit so you have these lines

key>Graphics Mode</key>

<string>1600x900x32</string>

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1600x900x32</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>y</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>legacy_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=i386</string>
<key>PciRoot</key>
<string>1</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>5</string>
</dict>
</plist>

Then replace in Extra folder

 

What video card/chipset do you have? It would help if you listed your hardware when asking for help

This fix sometimes helps with resolution but wont help with video acceleration.
