OK, FG2.4 on My OSX Lion mac is so F* slow! I get 4-7 fps with the b-1b, and on 2.0 I always had like 50. It feels like since I've got my mac repaired and upgraded it to lion it has become so slow...
And turning off the material shaders and such doesn't make it faster...

On my Macbook Pro 2.6Ghz 4GB RAM it's going like 6fps with all material shaders, 9-12fps without transition effect, 2fps with urban effect and 15-20fps without all shaders

or at least get in contact with playdeb (don't think they charge for their services). They did a pretty good job with the new release of supertuxkart.

Good idea. I have send them a mail to inform them of the 2.4.0 release, stay tuned...

the most important is the graphics card, maybe you graphics card is not powerful enough for flightgear ?

Macs, unlike Windows and Linux, have standardized specifications, so something like that shouldn't be a problem; if a graphics card for a Mac is bad for FG, then all of them should be.

However, I did read a couple of problems encountered by FG2.4 users with OS X Lion in the support forums. I'd suggest asking formally there, the IRC or the mailing list is your best bet.
Look for "B-BIRD" "N127KY" or "AVA0004" -that's me.

Despite having over 1700 posts here, I am not even close to being the most skilled guy here... I'm just words and bad drawing, not experience. :P

It was good enough for the 2.2 version. But i've erased like 2 gb of language files with the help of a special programm, and my fps was very good after I did that. But a lot of people have issues with osx lion. I'll see what i can do. But for now, i am going to sleep ;)

Goodnight pilots ;P

Hi Curt,

Just downloaded 2.4 from the main FG site. Not sure if there is a problem with the first 2 mirrors for Windows. Mirror 1 downloaded only 304mb then when I went to run the .exe it said the files were corrupted, same thing happened with mirror 2 although that downloaded 347mb with the same error. Mirror 3 seems to work fine though.

I started downloading it from site 1 but it wasn't fast enough, so I switched to the torrent and it went twice as fast.

Downloaded yesterday night and made short flying: appreciated the water reflection, the snow, the town effect (really impressive !!)
It seems flawless ... but for a strange continously echoing message on the console:

Code: Select all
FGMultiplayMgr::MP_ProcessData: No such file or directory
FGMultiplayMgr::MP_ProcessData: No such file or directory
FGMultiplayMgr::MP_ProcessData: No such file or directory
FGMultiplayMgr::MP_ProcessData: No such file or directory
.....


My GUI commands string is as follow:
Code: Select all
C:\Program Files(x86)\FlightGear2.4.0\bin\Win32\fgfs.exe
--fg-root=C:\Program Files(x86)\FRlightGear2.4.0\data

--texture-filtering=16
--callsign=I-SCIG
--multyplay=out,10,mpserver01.flightgear.org,5000
--multyplay=in,10,Paolo-PC,5000


I run FG2.4.0 on a PC with window7 (64 bit) ... FG2.0 wasn't echoing any message.

Do someone has any hint ??
Thanks in advance
