Fly! II Final Patch Released
6:00 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Avsim, developer of many popular PC flight sims, has released the Fly! II final patch 2.50.240 for both PC and Mac. The final patch fixes many stability problems, as well as adds other various improvements. Below is a full summary of what the patch does, directly from Avsim's website:

Richard Harvey has just announced the release of Fly! II Final Patch 2.50.240. This latest and final patch to the FLY! II, for both PC and MAC, comes out after months of development from Richard and his beta team and brings many improvements and corrections. Here's what Richard says in his post: "If you want to prepare your machines for the patch, here's what you need to do. For PC users, you need to already be patched to version 2.00.210 or higher (so, all of those already on patch 230 are fine). If you are a Mac user, you simply need to have the boxed retail version of Fly! II installed (since there are no previous Mac patches). Now, before everyone gets there hopes up, this patch release is not nearly as "extensive" as the 230 patch was (though, it is inclusive of all the 230 changes). Whereas the previous patch had hundreds of changes, this patch has a smaller set. I would argue, though, that this patch is probably more significant in that the majority of fixes made have greatly improved the stability of the product. Throughout testing, we found very ugly and serious crash situations, and eliminated every situation we could find. This was particularly prevalent while using ATC or computer aircraft. Alot of progress was also made in the weather system, and you should be pleased to see a much more accurate correlation of weather to the imported METAR reports. There are also some long overdue fixes that affect things like PMDG aircraft models that are included.
