A new RealFlight Evolution beta, version 10.00.037, is now available. We made a change that might fix the issue some users have reported where pressing ESC/Cancel to open the menu causes a crash. We need affected users to try it out and report back so that we know whether it helps.

The new version contains several other fixes and improvements as well.

Release Notes:​

User Interface Improvements/Fixes
  • Possible fix for a crash that some users experience when pressing ESC/Cancel to open the main menu
  • Selecting an orphaned aircraft variant that refers to a missing base model no longer causes a crash
  • Fixed some navigation between new and existing Challenge system menus
  • Improved navigation across Training system menus, expanded access to the new UI
  • Exiting a multiplayer session does not pause physics (previously solved by opening and closing the menu)
  • Selection dialog and filter performance is improved
Other Improvements/Fixes
  • Swap pages models with empty NUP value strings do not cause a crash
  • Very thin geometry is better supported for newly imported 3D models (.FBX)
    • Existing models are unaffected by this change
  • Scenario Quick Select dialog's Color Schemes selection option causes the chosen scheme to be loaded
  • RealFlight no longer emits ultralight.log in the installation directory
  • Updated Future Obstacle Grid Wall object
  • Removed unused Grass Patch and Walkway Grass Patch objects

Please provide feedback on your results in the dedicated thread. We are particularly interested in whether this new version fixes the problem some users have reported where pressing ESC/Cancel to open the menu causes a crash.

How to Get the Beta Build
  1. Restart your Steam client to ensure it is aware of the new versions.
    1. Right-click the Steam icon in your system tray and select Exit.
    2. Once everything closes, run Steam again.
  2. Right-click on RealFlight Evolution in your Steam library, then select Properties...
  3. In the Properties window, select Betas on the left.
  4. Click the "Select the beta you would like to opt into" dropdown control to expand the list.
  5. Select "publicbeta".
  6. Close the Properties dialog.
  7. Steam will now download the new version.
Reverting to the Non-Beta Version
You can switch back and forth between the public beta branch and the default (non-beta) distribution branch at any time. Simply perform steps 2-7, except in step 5 choose “None” instead of “publicbeta”, and Steam will change your installed version back to the latest public release.
