Does anyone have one of the original G0 versions of the Real Flight simulator with a controller that I can attempt to use with my dual core Intel Mac? The help desk at Real Flight has told me this likely is the only versin of the software that will work with my system. I want to learn how to fly helicopters and NEED a sim program! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Your best bet is to install Apple's bootcamp and a copy of Windows XP on your mac. I believe I've seen other threads where folks have been successful with this setup.

your mileage may vary.

I had called the help line for the simulator and asked about running Parallels and Windows on the dual core Mac - they said they could NOT confirm that 3.5 would run on a mac so configured - even though it was running Windows in native environment. There apparently is some problem about hardware - how rthe controller is recognized via the USB buss....

SO --- I was hoping there was someone "out there" who HAD gotten the thing to work and what it was they had done - before I made such an investment in my flying future....

You might try the downloadable demo. It doesn't have Interlink controller support, but if it doesn't work you can be pretty sure that the full version won't work.

Yeah, the thing I'm taking about is not Parallels. It's a whole separate OS install on your hard drive... you have to choose to boot up into OSX or XP at boot time.

Running G3.5 on my iMAC...

One consumer voting his $$ here:

I just purchased a 20" iMAC. 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; 1GB 667 MHz SDRAM; ATI Radeon X1600 128Mb and (of course) Bootcamp into WinXP Pro.

G3.5 runs with full complexity at a minimum of about 70fps and I routinely see 90-100 fps. Its glass smooth. If you want more 3D speed you can get the X1600 with, I think, 256Mb on board. Oh yes, and I can pipe the digital video out to my 50" Sony SXRD and have a really BIG time.

Realflight will NOT run in Parallels (XP emulation) mode however.

One happy camper here with OS10X !!!
