Allocating Video Memory

I'm using Linked Clones. If I setup the Master with 32mb Video ram. How does the L/C use that memory? I will have Windows & Mac's. Mac's need more video memory to open in Full Screen then Windows. Do the computers take what is needed or grab all the 32mb?

The video memory is for the virtual machine not the client, so it doesn't matter how mac handles it. You just need to make sure its at a high enough setting to support the resolution you want to the linked clone to use, if you don't have a gpu in the esxi host, it will just use normal memory for that amount.

This kinda explains it
