10.6.8 AMD legacy + GeForce 210 doesn't run games

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

 

I just installed SL 10.6.8 using nawcom bootcd & kernel and retail 10.6.3. Updated it to 10.6.8. Everything works just fine, except video. I added GraphicsEnabler=yes flag and now I can change resolutions, dual monitor mode works and I definitely have hardware acceleration — menu bar is semi-transparent and so on.

 

But I have problems running games (tried Half-Life 2 and Quake 3) and, for example, applying some filters in Photo Booth. Applications just crash. One more observation — OpenGL acceleration in Photoshop CS5 works really slow — I had to turn it off.

 

My configuration is as follows: Athlon X4 3.0 GHz, Asus M4A785T-M, 4 Gb DDR3, Asus GeForce 210 512 Mb, two 19" 1280x1024 panels, SL 10.6.8

 

Settings applied: GraphicsEnabler=yes, legacy_kernel, -force64 (tried disabling it), arch=i386 and busratio=15 (fixes sound problems). Also tried installing nVidia official drivers.

 

Any thoughts?
