I also use RF7 on a MBP using Fusion 6. I suspect I would have better performance if I went to bootcamp, but for flying on a laptop, it's acceptable.
What are the specs on your MBP? I'm really interested in as many details as you can provide.
I registered here specifically to answer a question just like this. Will RF7 work on Fusion on my MBP retina?
As I understand it, with RF7 the USB interface works just fine, I believe problems are strictly around the graphics performance in a VM vs native (which is why Bootcamp works flawlessly).
I'm running on a current generation i7 MBP retina with only the integrated graphics (that's the part that is likely going to kill this whole idea).
I don't expect KnifeEdge to call this "supported". I get that running in a VM isn't supported so I get what I get.
Thank for any help
Please report back how it goes.
It seems that everyone who reports success with Realflight in a VM never says another word after that.... it makes one wonder.
RealFlight9 does not run on Macs native. It could run in a container (on Windows) an a Mac; but not worth the trouble. I have multiple Linux|GNU systems, and several Macs, and I chose to purchase a Windows notebook (first in thirty years) to dedicate to RealFlight9. I chose the Dell G5 15 5500.Last post from this thread dated 5/14/14...Any chance you guys can provide an update as of today? I just bought RF9.5 and have a 2014 MacAir. Thoughts were to buy a newer Air (as I need anyway) and get Parallels or buy a cheap PC laptop just for RF. If you have any suggestions on what would work PC wise for the cheapest amount that would be great. Thx.
Make that 7,, Or I am attempting to. I am no way a fan boy of Apple but the reason for my shift to apple about 10 yrs ago was that fact of encrypted computer right out that gate with the highest security against bugs and viruses. I had countless Windows computer and at age 45 I have had my share of apples. Once it's learned apples are great, but problems like this arise with software. I hear I should use Boot Camp to run the RealFlight Simulator or should I just use a different Sim all together? Will the other simulator work with my DX6e controller?Sure does if you hack OSX. I have Hackintosh on a virtual machine and my old Dell XPS 1530 laptop had a hard drive I could swap for it. I did it just to do it though as its useless to me as a OS. Can't do anything with it as all the software I care about is for Windows.
I'm sure that unless someplace freezes over there will never ever be a Mac version of RealFlight. There is a very limited market for this software to begin with and even a smaller number of Mac people using Realflight. In this forum I would say there are 6 active people in the last year that use Realflight on a Mac.
