Installing older/newer versions on Mac

Post by Mincalo » Sun Jul 03, 2022 4:05 pm

There seems to be and issue on Mac where if you have a newer version of the game installed any older versions simply won't work. Every time you launch will give the message "YSFlight has quit unexpectedly." however there is a fix which is completely deleting the newer version which is a simple process.

1. this step is optional but I recommend that you screenshot or in some way save your keybinds and your addons.

2. next delete the ysflight folder (to find this easily just right click your ysflight shortcut and select options>show in finder)

3. go to /Users/username/Library/Application Support and delete YSFLIGHT.COM and do the same with /Users/username/Documents/YSFLIGHT.COM

4. download and install the older version of your choice and it should run just fine. at this point you can re-add your addons and keybinds

Some versions of Mac don't support the 32bit 2015 at all, so if the above still doesn't work, you can download 20170517 test version, which is 64 bit and compatible with 2015 servers
