Purge NVDA 2.1.1 has a bug where option 3 doesn’t work. The igpu status is wrong because it cannot be read for subsequent boots. Otherwise should not be a problem. An update to the script is already planned.

thank you for your quick replay. do you think that's the source of the problem with opening these apps (not responding...)

Unrelated. It’s likely the apps + set egpu. Cannot be helped if apps won’t initialize.

Ok, will wait for update. 
It has to be somehow related to one of the scripts, because before the installation they would work well. This had happened even before installing set-egpu, just nvda and wrangler.

Now I am at the CMD+S stage, trying to uninstall the scripts one by one, and getting each sentence individualy, should I just hold enter to run them all, or type “y” and enter for each one?

@avj the scripts (except set-eGPU) don’t control how apps will be accelerated. Even if I update purge-nvda, you won’t see a difference. The upcoming update is for NVIDIA eGPU users anyway. You can uninstall without needing to go to single user mode unless you can’t boot. Just follow script instructions.

Ok, but now I cannot boot so I have to do it on (I guess) single user mode. I think I will have to reinstall mac os. 
did I have to suppress nvidia dgpu for AMD egpu to work? 
by the way, since you have the same mac model, what scripts and options work the best with it?

@avj reset nvram and you might be able to boot.

Using a revamped version of purge-nvda (coming soon), Macs with NVIDIA dGPUs can now use latest web drivers for NVIDIA eGPUs. A benchmark comparing internal (using set-eGPU) vs. external display:

ALLn1 Installer 10.13.4 > 10.14 beta 3

What does it do?
This little app let's you install all  @mac_editor scripts without using terminal in depth.

  1. It installs the scripts like it would when using terminal commands
  2. Places ALLn1 enabler in the folder Programs
  3. Deletes PW cTB enabler 2.0 (if it is in applications folder)


Instructions for ALL
n1 Installer:

!!!Make sure SIP is disabled!!!

Edit: if on 10.14 b, reboot after installing twice.

  1. Download ALLn1.dmg
  2. Mount ALLn1.dmg by clicking the icon
  3. Open ALLn1 Installer
  4. Select the script you want to install
  5. Wait a moment, you will be asked your password.
  6. type your password (script is being installed)
  7. In the background ALLn1 is placed in Programs folder.

After your first patch you can easily acces your installed scripts by just opening ALLn1 from you Program folder.

Scripts will auto update like normal.

Download

UPDATE:
Installer will automatically contain the latest release

purge-nvda 3.0.0 works on 10.13.6. 

That aside after upgrading to 10.13.6 it seems that the texts are not as sharp as before. Black text has a blueish colour on some letters. Turning off font smoothing helped a bit. On 10.13.5 the texts were sharp.

Really appreciate with Mac_editor great works.
