FG 2.6.0 crashes with some aircraft? Try this quick-fix.

I've heard some users are struggling with FG crash (before you crash the aircraft yourself :-p) when using CitationX, 777-200ER, or b1900d. This problem happens when Aircraft is adding a menu inside it's script (and this is a Mac specific bug).

It is already fixed on my local end and a new 2.6.0 package will be made soon (Now I'm working on some more issues to be fixed). Meanwhile you can use the quick-fix updater available at: http://macflightgear.sourceforge.net/wp-content/uploads/launcher/2.6.0/GUIUpdater.tar.gz

Here's the brief instruction of updater:

  1. Choosing "Advanced Features >> Others >> Install Add-on Data" on the GUI launcher.
  2. Select the file above (or GUIUpdater.tar if Safari automatically unpack gz).

This will get you back in the air.

Note

This updater is available only applicable to a package for 10.6/10.7. If you're using 10.5 package and have similar issue, be patient and try aircraft that doesn't add a menu item to the menu bar.
