install VMware tools:
As a noob the best solution I found was to power up the Snow Leopard installation then use Safari to re-download the Snowy_Vmware_files.tbz2 file mentioned in the installation instructions. Open (click click)the file in Finder which then unarchives it into a Snowy_VM folder. Inside that, the darwin_snow.iso can be deftly mounted with a right click >>open>>disc image mounter (i’m new to hacks)which then prompts to install VMware tools. The SL screen res is fully adjustable after that. Back to the snowy_vm folder where one can unarchive EnsoniqAudioPCI.mpkg.tar.gz with another swift clickclick and then rclick>> open with >> installer which prompts the sound driver installation. And presto! Perfect sound via my soundblaster audigy, and 1680×1050 res. A convoluted but effective method.
crash on power off:
edit vmx from “smc.present = true” to “smc.present = false”
Change Graphics Mode:
And for screen refresh rate you can add @Rate so you get:
