XView for MAC is here

Hi Simon!

Thanks for the confirmation: yep, it is in that very same location... I suspect my OS to be too old maybe (Snow Leopard)... or I'll re-download it later, in case I had a glitch.

Another thought...  I assume you are running the 64-bit version of XPlane 10.35?
It doesn't work using the 32-bit version as far as I know!

Hi again Simon!

Yep, X-Plane 10.35 64-bits there... so that's quite a mistery indeed! Thanks a lot for your kind suggestions.

Hi Pierre,

Have you downloaded the one on the ftp site or the one I emailed you back along?

Hi Mike!

It's the one from the ftp site, same size as simbro.

Hi Mike!

You have some mail... sorry for the delay! I found some references to XView on the log.txt that comes with my mail...

I'm trying to download xview for mac but when I try to connect to the ftp server with user and password provided it gives me a "Login authentication failed" error.

Do you know if there are new usr/pwd to access the server?

Thank you very much

I have been running PSX on my iMac with no problems. I then downloaded the beta of X-plane 11 along with Xview for X-plane. I could never get the two programs to connect so I tried to install Xcode for Mac from the iTunes store (it's free). I then started PSX and X-plane, and after starting the boost server in PSX it worked fine, go figure. Maybe this can help others with the same problem.

I have put the original version of mac.xpl on the server (larkshayes(dot)com).  As John says, it currently needs XCode to be installed on the Mac for it to work.  If anybody knows how to link in the required libraries into the binary so we don't need XCode, please let me know.

Hi Mike,

thanks for the updates and uploads! Very much appreciated.

Is it correct, that the mac.xpl does not support the external lighting switches? None work here. The Win.xpl is great!

Hi Tee,

I will look into it.  It should work as the code is identical to the Win version with the exception of a few OS specific mods to basic comms routines, threads etc.

mh... can't find the problem. I do have quite a few plug-ins running. Maybe one of them interferes. I'll remover all but xview.
Keep you posted.

Update:
No luck on shutting down all plugins. I removed all of them out of the folder except Xview obviously.
None of the lights respond to the light switches.

Anyway, the good news is that my Christmas tree lights do work among others.
Happy Holidays all!

I tried mac.xpl on XP11.
The server and boost connection work. Which is great.
However the lights don't.
I do have xcode installed and work on OSX Sierra.

Laminar Research corrected the landing lights bug in  XP11 beta 3.  mac.xpl should be ok now.  Mike

I have quite a few problems with 11 pb3. It crashes to desktop quite often. Maybe it's because I use the demo version.
But I want to make sure all works before I buy it.

Sooo.. after several attempts I pretty much give up on the light issue.
I can get mac.xpl xview to work on XP11 pb3. But the lights don't work, period.

Is this maybe a demo issues? I didn't buy 11 yet.

Is this still available?  I can't get in to the ftp site.
