@chickyd3v,Sorry, Please do me a favor, can you show me the way of "use an framebuffer from an old version of MacOS"?
It maybe possible to patch the existing frame buffer to work with VGA but its something I've never done so I cant really advise you on what to do ... you could try posting on this thread :-
Sleep works with double monitors. The only issue left is booting with both monitors connected. 10.14.4 has borked that up for me. I tried changing the BUSID on the DP monitor that doesn't come on. That didn't work. Any ideas? I have the latest Lilu and WEG. Everything was fine on 10.14.3...
Explains that you know that MacOS no longer officially supports VGA but can any one help with patching your framebuffer to work with VGA using a non-standard method ...its possible that some one has figured out a way.
If you have no luck with that then the only other method would be to use the framebuffer kexts from an old version of MacOS, again its not something I've ever done but I believe that you would have to install an old version of MacOS that still supported VGA ... (I think OSX Mavericks might have still had support for VGA) once installed and working you would then have to copy the required framebuffer kexts and install them on your target version of MacOS. You would probably have to patch the MacOS version of those kexts too ... like i said before its not a method we recommend as every time you update MacOS they would be deleted so you would have to reinstall them.
My advice would be to install a cheap dGPU if possible and drive your VGA monitor from that using an active adapter.
