Hey JM,

Sure, I'll just write a quick guide below here so others can follow along as well:

Here's a screenshot of the Core settings:
I've marked the two folder icons, so you can see which ones I meant.

So first click the icon for "Path to FlightGear program (fgfs)", then click this:
Image => Image
And make sure the path goes (from bottom to top): <your computer>/Macintosh HD/Applications/FGx/Contents/MacOS and select fgfs there.
(it's partly in Dutch here; but most of the folders are English anyway, you'll figure it out :wink: )

For the "Path to FlightGear data directory (fgdata)", do the exact same thing, but check for: <your computer>/Macintosh HD/Applications/FGx/Contents/MacOS and select the folder named fgx-fgdata and click Choose.
If it asks about importing, click Import!

And that should do it! Thanks again gral for the awesome launcher :)

Oh and yes, Rembrandt works for me now, it's under the Rendering tab, look for "Deferred Rendering (Rembrandt)".

I have just started using FGx 2.8.0.

Im on a,
Mac OS X 10.6.8
FGx 2.8.0
ATI Radeon HD 4870

Everything seems to be working fine for me.
FGx crashes when i quit FGx but that seems to be it :)

I have had problems with FlightGear-2.8.1-r276 viewtopic.php?f=17&t=17626

The problems i had are all gone with FGx 2.8.0 :)

Thank you Oscar for the screen shot, it made it clearer to set up.

Thank you gral for this.
