Default Where to download additional helicopters for MAC

Hello, I have AFPD for mac and I cannot download any helis that work. Iwould like to get T-rexes and a coaxial heli. I tried all the ones from rc-sim, but either the sound is missing or the colors are missing and the helicopter is transparent. I have a relatively new iMac.

Please advise on where I can get additional helis for MAC.

Thanks

What video card are you using? You'll need to meet the system requirements here http://www.aerofly.com/afpd/requirements.html

Default RE: Where to download additional helicopters for MAC

Hey rajul

My video card is the ATI radeo HD 2600. Ithink it surpasses the requirements. I have no issues with the graphics being slow, it works great. Just the new ones I download are all white or transparent. They work fine though.

I saw another thread about this, they were saying that you have to change the jpgs to bmps but that didn't work out.there was no solution that was figured out and that thread ended. So I was hoping to start a new thread where Ican get some solutios for this (if there are any). Maybe it's just that the additional helis you dl are made for windows?

Thanks for any help.

Did you run the latest patch version 1.11.7.31 for AFPD Mac?

Rajul,

I have the AFPD patinum edition. The patch update you suggested is for Aerofly 5, not for AFPD. I did dl the latest patch for AFPD, it was

1.11.07.31


Despite this it's still not working. Iappreciate you trying to help. Do you have any other ideas?

if it helps, my problem is similar to this thread. I have the same problem with all helis, not just the T-rexes Idownload.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_92...tm.htm#9262245

I've also attached a screenshot of what the heli looks like.

Thanks!

Sorry for the mixup. Check if your graphics driver has been updated to the latest version from the ATI website

Rajul, I checked the AMDwebsite and there are no updates for my ATIRadeon 2600 HD. If this helps, I have Mac OS X10.5.8

Could you go to your main AFPD directory and look for a file tm.log. Then open it with a text editor and copy and paste the entire content here. Thanks

Default RE: Where to download additional helicopters for MAC

This is without the downloaded helis in the aircraft folder, if you want me to post this whole thing with the downloaded helicopters in the "aircraft" folder let me know. Not sure if that makes a difference.

Ok, I'll check this quite frequently.

Also wanted to add that there is no sound either with the downloaded heli models.

Thanks for taking your time and trying your best to help rajul. Your contact info should come in every box of AFPD purchased for support and questions! Iwould recommend Aerofly over anything just based on the rapid support from you on this forum.

Hi msmalik, give me some time as I am checking this out with the developers. In the meantime, you could post the download links to the heli models you're facing issues with.

Sure, take your time!

Here are where I got the models from

http://www.rc-sim.de/

More specifically after logging in, here is the URLto all the helis for AFPD

http://www.rc-sim.de/wbb3/index.php?page=Database&c=54

Specific Models : basically all the models there on that site

Here are direct links to some of the models i downloaded and had the issue of white/transparent models with no sound

http://www.rc-sim.de/wbb3/index.php?...seItem&id=3920

http://www.rc-sim.de/wbb3/index.php?...seItem&id=3924

http://www.rc-sim.de/wbb3/index.php?...seItem&id=2674

http://www.rc-sim.de/wbb3/index.php?...seItem&id=3562



And a few others from other sites, but you get the idea. Let me know if you want me to post anything else, or screenshots of anything.

Thanks!

Hi msmalik,

let's take this one for some explanations:

Sound-Problem:
The zip file of this model contains a file Trex600.wav. This one has to be moved to th folder sound. Did you do that?

White model:
Maybe the mac version of the AFPD does not work with jpg files! Normaly a user-designed model has bmp files for the texture. The zip file of the trex600 contains 3 files for the painting of the model: Trex600.jpg, Trex600II.jpg and Trex600III.jpg.
Now you could try the following steps:
Move the 3 jpg files to another folder. Open the files with e. g. Paint and save them as bmp files (24-Bit-Bitmap): Trex600.jpg to Trex600.bmp, Trex600II.jpg to Trex600II.bmp and Trex600III.jpg to Trex600III.bmp. Move the bmp files to the folder trex-600.

Now there is one more problem: The file trex-600.tgo contains the information of the texture files. You must open this file with a text editor (I use Notepad++) and replace all jpg with bmp! Then save the changed file and you should have colour on your heli.

Good luck from Germany.

Arthur

Thanks for your inputs Arthur, as always.

Msmalik, you could try the suggestions given by Arthur. Bear in mind that the models in rcsim.de were developed by freelancer model designers and sometimes they are not optimized for Mac OS X. There is also a problem with file naming with lower and upper letters mixing. Mac OS X is sensitive, so if the model designer used lower-upper letters in file names and did not do the same in the TMG, these textures won't load under Mac OS X. The model designer should fix all file names to lower letters.

As far as your system and video card are concerned, they seem to be fine

Default RE: Where to download additional helicopters for MAC

Arthur and Rajul, Thanks for your help so far.

I think we are very close to the solution. The sound is working. I was able to change the jpg files to 24 bit bmp files using photoshop, since mac's don't have paint.

Now the only thing left is the file "trex-600.tg", Icannot open this file because Mac's don't have notepads. The equivalent is a program called "textedit", and that program was unable to open this. Well it opened it but it was all just weird signs and symbols.I think if there is a way to open this and change the coding to bmp like arthur suggested this may work.

But the question is how to open that on a mac?


Geez, why do mac users have to go through so much when it comes to flight sims lol.

Hi,

that's OK!

The file is not a normal raedable one! Just search for jpg and change it to bmp, save it and it should work!

Arthur, IT WORKED!

It took a while, but I opened up file with text edit, used the find function (command + F) to find all ".jpg" and changed them to .bmp.  And the graphics now show up!

Thanks a lot to Arthur and Rajul. 

I loved the support with AFPD, would definitely get AFPD all over again just based on the excellent support on this forum. 


Maybe this thread should be saved so all people with macs who try to download helis can get theirs to work! 

Thanks once again
