I am running Mac OSX Mountain Lion in VMware Workstation 9 and I want to increase the display graphics from 128 mb to maybe about 512mb is there a way to do this?

This is my current laptop setup.

Intel i7 2.3 Ghz Processor, 2GB Nvidia GT640M, 6GB DDR3

And VMware does not allow that? I wouldn't be surprised by the way if things don't work — OS X may not be virtualized on non-Apple hardware. – slhck Sep 11 '12 at 20:05

This might help. It's for windows, but you should still be able to edit the VMX file.
