Flightgear won't fly

Postby bramvandemunt » Thu Mar 08, 2018 6:15 pm

Hi!

I downloaded Flightgear 2017 2.1 on my iMac (10.9.5). When I hit fly a white window appears and it shuts off.

Could you guys maybe help me make it work?

We won't retro-fix an old version or spend much time diagnosing it, so the easiest thing to check is whether 2017.3.1 does the same thing for you - or better yet, the 2018.1 release candidate.

What does it do? Straight to error message? Or do you see the launcher?

This is also quite outdated. 10.9.5 is OS X Mavericks, which dates back to 2013-14.

The original crash report for 2017.2.1 appears to be OSG or font-related. osg_freetype.dylib is part of OpenSceneGraph.

Do you get a crash report window appearing with 2018.1 - or any other message at all?
