New YSFlight Download

Post by Michael Du » Mon Jul 29, 2019 2:57 pm

I was browsing the YSFlight website for addons, and I see that a new update of YSFlight is available for download (version 20181124). There's a download button for both Mac and Linux, but it appears that the YSFlight app downloaded doesn't seem to open on Mac. Is there a download for Mac only?

Hello fellow mac user! I'd recommend downloading the 2015 patched version of YSFlight as it will allow you to join online servers and get the best performance from the game. While newer versions of YSFlight have more features, they have a different network code that does not communicate with older versions of YSFlight which are standard for our windows fliers.

https://ysflight.org/download/ Scroll down to the bottom and download the 20151023 (Mac OSX Upgrade) version.

Thank you, that is the version that I am flying with (the 2015 version).
Do you happen to know the new features they have?
Thanks again :D

Does the 2015 version work for Mac Catalina OS (10.15.7)? I get an error that saying it's 32-bit and now Mac only works with 64-bit..

I'm one of the few mac users on the site, but i do not use 10.15. If this is an OS-wide thing then you should probably see if google searching can provide any answers for running 32 bit on 10.15.

If found this work around using a virtual machine, but I'm not sure how well it will work for YSF https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/how-to-run ... s-catalina

Good idea. I ended up using Windows through Parallels on my Mac. The 2015 version seems to work just fine through that so I'm airborne. Thanks for the advice.
