Re: FS2_Launcher OS X 3.0
You do not change mods from that list. You need to go to the Gameplay + Speed tab and click on the drop-down list in the Selected Mod field. A picture has been attached to this post for your reference.

The drop-down list at the top of the window applies only to standalone mods, i.e. mods that do not require any component of FS2_Open, such as the mediavps, to run. However, all standalone mods can still be run normally from the Selected Mods list. For instance, The Babylon Project, despite being standalone, can still be run as a mod if you place the relevant vps into a new subfolder and use the Selected Mods list to choose that folder.

On an additional note, if you want to run FS2 with retail eye-candy, all you need to do is select the text in the Selected Mods field and delete it. This disables all mods and runs only the vps stored in the root folder.

Re: FS2_Launcher OS X 3.0
Just a note on maybe confusing behaviour I had encoundered here:

If you play using wx_launcher and set a mod, but then switch to FS2_Launcher later, the command line options of wx_launcher stay in the command line (so you have mod and mediavps commands twice, which may lead to strange behaviour like in my case).

Solution was to start a game using wx_launcher set to "no mod", then quit the game and wx_launcher. After that I had a clean command line.
First encounter: ELITE. Later: X-Wing. The eclipse: FS2O. Ah, and a fan of post-apocalyptic Jugger in real life.

Re: FS2_Launcher OS X 3.0
Unfortunately, that solution won't work in all cases, such as when there are flags checked in wxLauncher's advanced settings. The wiki's article on FS2_Launcher has a section "If you have problems when you use one launcher and then the other one" that explains the issue.

Also, FS2_Launcher is no longer supported, because Soulstorm has said that he's no longer maintaining or developing it.

wxLauncher is now the standard launcher on OS X.

Please post in the offical wxLauncher thread and follow the troubleshooting steps from the official thread. Thanks.

Re: FS2_Launcher OS X 3.0
Is wxLauncher not in a PPC/x86 universal app format?  It's the preferred solution at this point where usable.  If not I have soulstorm's launcher somewhere and can get you a link if nothing turns up.

Unstickied as we should probably be using wxLauncher exclusively on Mac for now.
