Gizmo 11.4.24

17 posts in this topic

Gizmo 11.4.24 is now available for Mac and Windows - x86 CPU's only.

This is the first release of Gizmo to use the LuaJIT Virtual Machine.

LuaJIT does not support PPC "out of the box".

A PowerPC build of Gizmo 11.4.24 will be made available soon.

The PowerPC version is fully compatible with the LuaJIT enabled version.

Your scripts will still work fine, they just can't run as fast.

I consider this a non issue because PowerPC Macs are a long way behind in terms of performance anyway.

Download your updated plugin here:

Thanks a lot Ben!

Custom-command event system fix for foo_OnStart() is working properly. Also foo_OnHold() and foo_OnStop() still works fine. Nice!  ;)

Thanks for the confirmation Pete.

For those of you who have updated to 11.4, please check out the JoyStick button in your toolbar.

(The one that pops out on the right hand side of the screen..)

It opens this window:

Click the update button in the window title bar to refresh the list.

ToyBox gives you 3-click access to useful Gizmo Toys.

If you see items in the list in yellow they're undergoing testing and may have weird bugs.

For scripters:

Gizmo Shell was also updated and is now quite useful and friendly.

got it

for some reason that I did not investigate (I can get lazy, I know) the shell was not working on my pc before.

It works fine now.

Thanks Ben!

Thanks Tonka..

There are two known limits to where Gizmo runs.

- On PowerPC you can't have LuaJIT speed like I just added to 11.4

- On PowerPC you can't load and play custom .WAV files.

On any other machine that X-Plane runs on, Gizmo should work and all scripting features should also work.

Let us know if you have any troubles. The instructions are well tested and the success rate is high.

Thank you  - and is it true that there is no conflict anymore withe the SASL plugin? (of course no guarantee for bad scripts)

Kind Regards Tom

New tool in the ToyBox:

Screen%20shot%202011-05-02%20at%204.25.20%20PM.png

...type in the name of the global variable you wish to monitor.

/clear to reset the list.

It's still beta, but it's kinda useful for some stuff, and an experiment I'd wanted to hack out for a while.
