Default Why the difference in Windows/Mac version ??

I am demoing both the Mac and Windows version(s) of rocksim with my Gemini Titan 4..Both versions show a max altitude of 776 Ft but the displays in 2d are much different. .On the windows version the sim/display shows the apogee at 776 ft pops the chute at 7 sec delay..The Mac version keeps going to 1251 feet to Apogee...Ive attached the RKT is someone wants to give it a whirl...
If someone is running a MAC can you see if you get the same results...I got 8 trys left or 14 days...

Thanks

I just ran your file on Win7, and I'm getting 1240-1250 altitude range, with 9 seconds to apogee, and a Dv spread from 12 FPS to 24 FPS using that G80-7.

The simulation runs also suggest you will need at least a 6' launch rod...

I wonder what I am doing wrong...Thanks, now I can look for those results...

I think I have found it...I am using an older G80, I belive you are using the new one (G78)..If not, its back to the drawing board....
