    Machine isn't a PC, so not Vulkan, it's using Metal.... on MacOS Mojave 10.14.6 on MacPro 5.1, with Apple-recommended Sapphire Pulse, Radeon RX 580 8Gb, 80gb Ram, SSD Drives. I have Ikarus RC Flight Controller on USB).

    Neither Aerofly RC-8.11, MAC OS 10.14.6 or anything has changed since it was installed a few years ago.

    NO updates are available for anything. Mac doesn't update graphic drivers like a PC, or like in the Intel days. All Apple-supplied (fully Metal compatible) for Radeon RX 580 8Gb, the last of the AMD drivers before they've gone Apple Silicon.

    Again, it all worked great until recently.

    My RC8 on Mac is in a loop on Launch where it tries to Launch with The Thumb + B-17 Bomber, but then crashes with sliding the screen to the right back to Desktop. I usually had Airwolf or Mustang here.

    It won't launch. Was working until recently.

    Are there any Preferences I can dump to reset, or is there a way to get it go just go to default selection etc.?

    RC7 launches but it's old OpenGL graphics compared to modern Metal on RC8

    (Mojave 10.14 on MacPro 5.1, with RX 580, 80gb Ram, SSD Drives. I have Ikarus RC Flight Controller on USB).

    Currently using RC7 Ultimate on Mac still on Mojave on extremely capable 12-core MacPro 5.1 with a Radeon RX 580 GPU 8Gb, running off SSDs

    Just wondered if RC8 for Mac is now optimised for "Metal" GPUs, and if the old screen-tearing issues were ever solved when playing back Recordings? I'm recording to NVMe Raid so all the bandwidth one could ever need.

    Just so frustrated with RC7's recordings even with Sim at 0.5x, and recording at 60fps

    Using iTube Studio for screen recordings and then converting to ProRes after that. The MP4 compression is too much for my liking too.

    bartokwhite We have plans to release aerofly RC 8 for Mac OS as well. We would like to wait a little for user feedback first before doing this step.

    Well I'll certainly be first in line when you decide to do RC8 for Mac.

    I've found since moving to Mac OSX 10.13.6 that RC7 v7.53 ULTIMATE no longer works and the app crashes, so am hoping future development will solve this.

    I'd love to see more TrueScale models on RC8. I fly the P-51 Mustang all the time, plus double-sized Airwolf helicopter of course (I wish you'd change the pilots to have dark outfits + helmets to match the TV series though).

    I forgot to add the OS version:

    Mac OSX El Capitan (10.11.3)
    RC7 Version 7.4.7

    Same thing has happened to me on identical set-up, but on MacPro. Keeps saying it can't contact iTunes Store when it tries to restore purchases.

    I don't want to do a complete re-install as I'll lose all my edited Aircraft settings. Although I backed up my aircraft_mod and recordings folders separately.

    More bugs from RC7 it seems. First the graphics shearing (still not totally gone away and only patched with a bandage) and now this. It's obvious their focus is elsewhere at the moment (FS).


    Is there nothing else from RC7's preferences that could be dumped to reset iTunes Store Ultimate properly again.

    This is really directed to Aerofly developers and seem to be issues seen on other forums. Overall, Aerofly is excellent and possibly the best SIM on the market, but the entire top tier SIM's continue to get better. It has helped my flying immensely.

    1. On this forum many of the threads are in German and are of no help. I have selected English, but still see many in German. Could these be translated (also English to German or even other languages) somehow so we all can benefit.

    Could the 'Google Translate' widget be integrated into the website & forum's code? I use it very successfully on every page of our website.

    I'd like to address the Field of View "Keep Ground in View" comment that Steve made above. To me, the only way to fix this would be multi-monitor support, similar to FSX, but then would the 360 views still work properly without a perspective re-work? Adobe have done a lot of work with Perspective Warp / Crop in Photoshop, but those are still images and not 60fps like RC7.

    Whilst the beginners market of Electrics and Foamies is certainly the real-world market, I, on the other hand would push for more of the "aspirational" models, especially more Scale & Turbine versions, and/or an increase in the size algorithms to be even larger than standard 150/200% depending on the model.

    More "Truescale" would be awesome too.

    But that's the trade off with trying to accommodate many different types of customers' views. My interest is with the the high-end models... the ones that cost WAY more to break than the electrics & foamies, and thus require much more practice!

    Hi Mike,

    He does create new sceneries every now and then. They are all phantasic quality!
    And I still don't understand why he is not sharing his work here in the forums or in the rc-sim forums. Every link to a webside upvotes it for google's and other's search engines.

    I feel that I am quite active in the aerofly community. There are a lot of new aircraft and scenery that I got to test from other free developers and we share quite a bit of content that is not published yet or maybe never will be. (this might sound a bit selfish maybe...) If even me who knows so much about what is going on misses out on these seneries for month, who else is then?

    A little bit of advertisement really can't hurt. The more people get to download the finished scenery the better?!


    I agree, Jan.

    It's the one area of the Aerofly community that is exponentially smaller than your equivalent with FSX community. There are really only a tiny amount of add-ons for either RC7 or FS.

    Do you think it's because of the way Aerofly set up the software (as in it's not easy to develop new code / new aircraft), or is it simply a "numbers game" of not enough people using the software because it's seen by the RC/flight-sim mainstream consumers as a mainly, niche "German" language set of software? (even though we all know it's dual language).

    I would still love for somebody to "fix" the RC7 "Airwolf" model to be more authentic. It would require very little to make it correct.

    I'm a designer by profession, but wouldn't have the first clue where to start with this as the graphic formats are so customized and bespoke to RC7. It's not like one can re-texture map it easily, or anything.
