Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

X-Plane 8 is the last a PPC Mac compatible version of the comprehensive flight sim (Version 9.30 is the last PPC Compatible version). It offers accurate flight models, a wide scope in aircraft and a versatile set of aircraft types and weather conditions. Users can add new aircraft and scenery. Check out the handbook for more info - or go ahead and land at any of 18,000 airports across the world, with realistic scenery. You can even land on Mars, thanks to the Mars Orbiting Laser Altimeter.

If you'd like to play the most up to date X-Plane version on your modern Mac / PC, check this link here.

Scenery:
The main game (to be uploaded) includes the scenery World (generation 7) and USA (generation 8 - including every single paved road in the country). You'll be asked at the installation if you'd like to install them. Be aware that it increases the minimum required RAM to 512 MB.

Linux:
Linux system requirements are the same as of the Windows version
LinuxPPC system requirements are the same as of the Macintosh version

Note:
The system requirements above are for running with the "Generation-7 scenery option" (an option for version 8 of X-Plane). However, if you turn on the "Generation-8 scenery option" in the "rendering options" screen, then you must double the RAM system requirements on the Macintosh because all the details take a big amount of RAM!
(The Windows machines are currently able to cache the data away using less RAM, so the system requirements do not go up for Windows machines using the Generation-8 scenery)

I got this to run on my iMac G5 with 10.4.11. When trying to install it on my Mac Pro running 10.6.8, the installer quits with an error.

Congrats ! Wink May be someone could then reupload it in one piece, as I don't know if I could. Have u the MD5 checksum of the image ? It will help to know if the file is correct...

So that's it - I finally managed to upload the DVD in three segments (1.5GB, 1.5GB and 1.2 GB). Join them together after downloading and you got yourself a working X-Plane 8 DVD.

This was by far the hardest upload and I've had my fair share of uploading FMV-Mac games. Enjoy flying with the possibly best PPC Flight-Sim for the Mac Smile

somebody else is already about to upload it now?

It's only me here. I am uploading the preinstalled version 8.5 as my connection is working better today... May be someone can help u to reupload the splitted files in one piece. I don't know if I can, due to my own bandwidth, but if it works, I'm still here for helping u. Smile

I don't like the idea of split files for various reasons, yet in this case there might be no way around it. I've split the file into chunks of about 1.5GB but it looks like somebody else is already about to upload it now? By the way, I checked, my version of X-Plane is 8.05.

@Bolkonskij

The best way here is to split the image in parts before attempting to upload it here. Have u tried with BetterZip (recommended by mrdav besides that) or another equivalent software ?

I don't know what's your exact number version... But version 8.6 is still for sale like the 9. Smile
My Internet connection is actually down & out. It takes near 8 hours I think before I can upload in good conditions. Sometimes, uploading is faster than downloading with it...

@MacTouch That would be certainly better than nothing.

I tried another time to upload the stuff here from a modern Mac Pro but it would time out again and start from the very beginning. My internet connection seems too unreliable and slow. It's frustrating.

Anyone here in Germany with a fast internet connection willing to upload the beast if I snail mail him a USB stick with the toast image on it and you send it back to me afterwards? Gotta get this one up here somehow Smile

I have an installer for the version 8.4 & also an installed 8.5 version. This one requires a DVD of the game, but works like a demo otherwise. It comes from another Garden user, not me. May be I can upload that on this page ?

I feel with you. Any chance for Windows7/Firefox on your side?
I did acquire a spare Optiplex DT 745 for about € 30 the other day. Absolutely not cutting edge, but simple and reliable.

Man! This is really frustrating! I had 4GB of this 4.4 GB file uploaded when TenFourFox crashed and all those hours of uploading were lost. I'm not sure I'm ready for another attempt Sad Anyone waiting for this?
