Hi, this is my first time posting here. I'm a big fan of what this community has done with FS2.
A few months back I re-downloaded FS2 onto my new Macbook Pro, along with all the fixings (upgrades) and what appeared to be every single finished fan project/mod. But because I didn't have a Joystick with me, I chose to hold off playing it.
However, I recently got a joystick, and upgraded my operating system to Leopard, and was all set to play through FS2.
I engaged all of the old settings in FS_open that I had engaged on my PPC G5 iMac (played the heck out of it, and never had any problems), and was all set to play it... when I got to the pilot select screen... it freezes. I have to reboot to get out.
If someone could tell me what exactly I'm doing wrong, I would really appreciate it. I've already accepted that I probably didn't install something correctly, I just need some guidance in correcting it. I looked around, but didn't seem to find any threads on this topic. Again, if I missed something, please sic Captain Obvious on me. Thanks.
Well, turns out it was a resolution issue. I didn't have it set right, and so it froze up whenever it went "off" the screen and into the blackbox.
But then later after I'd been playing for a while, I went into the settings menu, and accidentally froze it when I went off the edge. At this point, I had figured out the problem, and set my resolution properly.
How the heck do I avoid crashing?
