I think for those who searched for it they found it, but in case someone missed would like to share how I worked around when Workstation Pro not allow 3D acceleration for guest machines.
I'm running Intel i7, AMD HD6450, openSUSE Leap 42.3 with out from the box AMD graphic drivers, kernel 4.4.87-25-default, VMware Workstation Pro12.5.7 build-5813279.
"Hardware graphics acceleration is not available.
As a result, this virtual machine may experience very low graphics performance. Follow the instructions provided by your graphics card vendor or Linux distribution in order to update your computer's OpenGL drivers."
"No 3D support is available from the host.
The 3D features of the virtual machine will be disabled."
After editing and adding a line
mks.gl.allowBlacklistedDrivers = "TRUE"
in the VM's .vmx file. No more such a error messages pop up when starting VMs. I seen in some posts that some folks have problems with it and VMs freezing, but not in my case.
P.s. also I'm creating this post to log my personal problem solving.
