hi, thank you for your awesome guides… appreciated. running Sierra on WS12.5… i used updated version of your guide (youtube)… WS patch automatically downloaded tools… i also used that. Installed bootloader… The thing is graphics acceleration is still slow… i assigned 6 cores of i7 6700k and 8GB RAM… Running on Intel 330 180GB SSD (and Asus GTX970)… Is it because of virtualization or is there anything i can do to have smooth graphics? boot flags maybe?

thanx in advance

First, thanks for the great work you’ve put out here! I do have a question for you about webcams. I’m struggling to get mine working. Both my integrated camera and my Logitech. The behavior is interesting in that the camera light will come on and FaceTime or WebEx will get an initial image but no actual video past that point. My light still stay on from the camera as well. I’ve installed and reinstalled the VMware tools, tried different USB ports on my laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Mike
