Hi, I purchased X Plane 11 on Steam. After downloading I tried to play but all i got was a black screen. I updated my graphics card drivers but it was still the same. I uninstalled and then downloaded again but it was still the same. I downloaded and installed the demo, still the same black screen.

Anyone know the problem ?

Hi, this is strange. Never seen that problem before. X-plane does not seem to load any scenery. He is just listing them.

Can you access the menu or settings to change them? We've seen reports that Mac users have issues with Intel GPUs & rendering settings adjusted to use HDR + FXAA anti-aliasing.

Or try changing from full screen to windowed sim in the Graphics settings and see if that helps.

I have the same problem. I have a Mac mini with Intel UHD 630, macOS 10.14 Mojave.

When I select HDR, there are two antialiasing settings that show a black screen: FXAA and 2x SSAA+FXAA. The 'None (fastest)' and and 4x and 8x settings work fine.

After updating X-Plane to 11.32 the problem is the same. Is it going to be addressed?
