Just installed xplane11 on the SSD of my MacBook Pro(MacOs 10.12.4, 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM), including the update. The app is not usable for me. Settings of the joystick are not saved, When the plane appears, every click of the mouse has a delay of 30 sec to infinite and I have to force quit the app.

Xplane10 run without issues on the same machine.

Make sure you meet the system requirements. X-Plane 11 is more powerful than X-Plane 10 and requires more CPU/GPU power.

In addition, do not install to the Applications folder.

Your computer won't handle XP. Your CPU is only 2.3 ghz, whereas the recommend speed is 3.5 ghz. Try to get a better computer since Macs can't handle it since they have bad specs and bad cooling in general. A $2000+ gaming laptop like a Sager could run it flawlessly
