@tsakal Finding the steam game in Finder and set it's preference using the Get Info window doesn't work? That should - steam games on a Mac are generally a pain. Set-eGPU doesn't search external drives and other locations for apps - just general known ones. Stay tuned for an update. Cannot say about Citrix - unfamiliar.

Please can someone help me with my issues (posted) above,.. have tried several things but my MacBook pro 2015 (10.13.6) does not take advantage of my Titan X. If I run this script it does not boot at all, or if it running crashes if the EGPU is connected to it.
Does updating to Mojave help?

@anafax Have you by chance reset NVRAM/enabled SIP? This would prevent a patched system from booting. SIP must be disabled at all times. Also you need not use a full macOS restore to get up and running - use the script's recovery options as instructed for getting back in instantly. Kudos for keeping backups👌

@mac_editor it only works for me cmd + S or cmd + R. safe mode is not working. how i use recovery script?.... and you have already encountered such a problem?

I'm  running the purge-wrangler and purge-nvda script. All I do is start the game as I always had. I didn't have to reinstall anything.
The only reason I run purge nvda is to disable the dGPU and get the external monitor working with my RX580

Script works in Majove (10.14 18A391). RX580 working no problems so far. Font smoothing also working again. Was broken in High Sierra 10.13.6.
