@valinor61 you're welcome, good to know that worked, in regards the battery was not the clover, was the DSDT itself with a lot of values bigger than 8bit, the missing battery beside other issues generate the missing trackpad in preferences pane, this is happening in a macbook too, so without trackpad in preferences pane there is no two fingers tap :)

@serdeliuk I made no changes about battery in DSDT. Touchpad works just fine with touchpad patch only. Battery works fine as well I am just getting a warining in a boot log other than its all fine. Overall system works perfectly. AsusSMC is not working on Catalina that's the main issue. But in Mojave it should work as well. I am gonna share my build soon. I need to separate touchpad DSDT patch from DSDT to make seperate SSDT. In open core windows and Mac shares same dsdt and ssdt files. Also without any patch in DSDT, build can work in every bios version and every same spec laptops.

Now I noticed trackpad buttons are not working is it same on you?

If you tell about hardware buttons there is an issue, the voodooi2c emulate the magic mouse which has only one hardware button and a touchpad, as a consequence to click on hardware button you need to keep a finger on trackpad too and with other finger to click the hardware button, i found easy to touch the trackpad on the edge and then click with the same finger.
But if you have the battery recognized by the macos you can access the trackpad preference pane and enable tap to click and two fingers tap for right click.

@exzos sadly it looks impossible to fix hdmi because in our motherboard it attached directly with discrete gpu so we cant use it on osx. You can test it by disabling nvidia drivers in windows sadly even in windows hdmi is not working that way.
