^good eye, must have been left over from my previous kext collection and has been removed
oddly enough only AppleALC worked, DummyHDA didn't do anything on it's own

have now installed high sierra on an external drive twice, once on apfs and once on hfs, seems to have the same memory crunching properties
boot up is using over 4gb, open a few tabs and we're down to less than 500mb of memory free
appears to be high sierra being memory hungry?

Any change requires new PR files...
None attached.

more of an observation than problem, just seems like memory management is different compared to el capitan
guess i should be keeping my eye out on the pressure instead of the actual memory numbers now?

have updated an updated PR files anyhow
i do seem to be getting a bunch of ACPI errors(namespace lookup failure, ae_already_exists) on load, i've seen some other posts suggest it's usually caused by abuse of DSDT fixes but i've already minimised everything without any change

Your hotpatch for battery status is completely wrong.
You have duplicate symbols in SSDT-BATT.aml (eg. symbols already defined in DSDT).

You should go back through the hotpatch guide for a better understanding of how to do it correctly.

Just because something wrong was working ok in one version does not make it right.

yep absolutely right, time to break it down to a clean slate and start again from the basics :)

quick question, i don't believe SSDT-DEBUG.aml's essential for normal operations right? whenever i get clover to exclude it from my SortedOrder I seem to get a kernel panic on boot from IOACPIFamily and AppleACPIPlatform, no ACPIDebug.kext installed either

Your SSDT-HACK.aml has RMDT references, so until you remove those references, SSDT-DEBUG.aml is required.
It is very obvious if you use grep:
Code:
NUC6i7KYK:patched rehabman$ grep RMDT *.dsl
SSDT-DEBUG.dsl:    Device (RMDT)
SSDT-DEBUG.dsl:            Notify (RMDT, 0x80)
SSDT-HACK.dsl:    External (RMDT, DeviceObj)    // (from opcode)
SSDT-HACK.dsl:    External (RMDT.P3__, MethodObj)    // 3 Arguments (from opcode)
SSDT-HACK.dsl:        \RMDT.P3 ("GPRW", Arg0, Arg1)

will investigate after some sleep :)
