  1. I hope you get it sorted. Trust me, It really is fit for purpose and does work well on the Mac, particularly the TE scenery. In addition to the Central Log Nick asked for, it would also help to know the type and spec of the Mac you are trying to install this on.
  2. This isn’t just an Apple problem, it happens with quite a few programs. You should still be able to open Central. If you google there are plenty of answers along the lines of: Here is a quick two second fix on How To Open the Software that throws “Can’t Be Opened Because Apple Cannot Check For Malicious Software” Error Open Finder Traverse through to “Applications” Folder Highlight the software you are trying to Open Press “control” Right “Click” & Select “Open” https://thewiredshopper.com/apple-cannot-check-for-malicious-software-error/
  3. Someone from Orbx will help you with the technical details but don’t give up. Both XP11 and Orbx Central do work on a 27 inch 5K iMac - assuming you have sufficient disk space available. I’m running it on a 2014 model, albeit with 16 GB of RAM. Both softwares downloaded and installed without issue for me, as did all the Orbx packages I’ve purchased so it is possible. You say it crashes XP11. But are you able to open up Orbx Central on its own? And if so have you downloaded any scenery yet?
  4. Here is the news item from the Mag. Looks like it's an end of year release, so your hopes for a yoke may be in vain, unless they really are going into the civil aircraft market and this is just the first in the range. Your picture might be showing the TM Flying Clamp or desk clamp.
  5. That wouldn't by any chance be the Thrustmaster Airbus TCA controllers would it? My Jul/Aug copy of PC Pilot dropped through the door today and had an announcement about this new range with Thrustmaster Civil Aviation (TCA) sidestick Airbus edition plus TCA Quadrant.
  6. Tony As I've discovered, there are X-Plane add-ons and there are X-Plane add-ons. Unfortunately most tend to be Windows only, as with xVison, and few are Mac compatible - this is from their user manual: Windows 7 (64-bit version) or later. Mac OS or Linux are not supported. Tony
  7. Tony I've installed various products on my Mac (also currently on Catalina 10.15.1) using Orbx Central and didn't even know about any Convert.cmd file so I assume its not required. Tony
  8. Like so many other add-ons, its a shame its only XP for Windows and not XP for Mac as well. Not that I'm complaining, really, because its still a joy just to be able to fly on a Mac without having to go into Boot Camp.
  9. That would probably have been from Flightstore.co.uk At least that’s where mine came from when they sold off the prior year edition, albeit many years ago.
  10. I probably stand corrected. It's been some time since I last built a PC. It would appear that a PC with similar spec to the iMac from one on the UK's advertising Flight Sim PC builders, turned out only £300 cheaper than the Mac. The cost of the PC increases significantly with a 5k 27" screen comparable to the iMac, and the iMac price can be reduced by using Crucial RAM upgrade from 8 to 32 GB rather than Apple's exhorbitant prices. Either way, its still a large slice for any of us on a pension!
  11. Jonn Well, as an existing XP11 user, with all 3 parts of TE UK running on a now quite ancient 2014 iMac at very reasonable frame rates, all I can say is - it's a joy to behold. And by quite reasonable I mean 30 to 40 fps over most of the UK, down to 25 fps over large cities, with the exception of London which is quite a killer. And that is with 'sensible' settings i.e. one or two notches down from Max. However, there is a caveat. This is ORBX TE on a) XP11 and b) on a Mac under the Mac OSX Operating System, which doesn't mean that it will be the same on P3D or even XP11
  12. 64 with the pensioners discount only 5 months away. But isn't 60 the new 50?
  13. You will need Orbx Central to downloadload & install and not FTX Central: Compatibility General You will need Orbx Central to download and install this product. Orbx Central runs on Windows 7+, macOS and Linux. An internet connection is also required.
  14. That will be because it needs Orbx Central rather than FTX Central to download & install: Compatibility General You will need Orbx Central to download and install this product. Orbx Central runs on Windows 7+, macOS and Linux. An internet connection is also required.
  15. You were OK with TrueEarth UK packages as Orbx Central wasn't out then. Us Mac uses then had the issue of doing manual downloads! Since TE Washington (I think) all downloads have been on Orbx Central. And in the 'small print' on the Leeds-Bradford page - see below - it does in fact say they you need Orbx Central to download it. Of course that's no use if you're not aware of Orbx central :-). At least you're now up and running - I hope! Compatibility General You will need Orbx Central to download and install this product. Orbx Central runs on Windows 7+, macOS
