    SkyMaxx Pro v4.6 Has Been Released

    No, no -- I did not mean to imply as much. I get it. Thanks.

    Well, all I know is that when I disable Gizmo my Kodiak problems go away. But okay, fair enough -- thanks for clarifying, and again thanks also for your support.

    Hmm. Curious. Because when I first starting disabling Gizmo, I'd swear that I was still seeing SMP clouds (though my memory, let us say, is less than perfect). With respect to the Kodiak, XP(10) will crash if on startup the Kodiak is selected. However, if I start XP with a different plane, say the default 172, and then load the Kodiak there is no problem (hope that's clear enough). There was one other problem/symptom which escapes at the moment, but when I disabled Gizmo both of these problems went away. Btw, when I first notice issues with the Kodiak, I recalled having heard Dan Klaue (once upon a time) complaining about Gizmo causing conflicts with SASL, which first gave me the idea of disabling Gizmo (and just for the record, I take no stance regarding Dan's criticisms of Gizmo).

    Although, this raises a different issue which I'd only just now thought about. I also recently discovered (by trial-and-error) that Gizmo seemingly causes conflicts with my Thranda Quest Kodiak, and which is why I have been disabling Gizmo when not flying my Saab 340A. However, I also did not notice that doing so is problematic for RWC. I'm guessing that I'm out of luck here, but do you happen to know of any way around this conflict?

    That was it; It's been so long since I've reinstalled these products that I'd forgotten about the dependency on Gizmo. Thanks for you help, and sorry to bother you about this.

    Oops. Hold tight a sec. I think I may have had Gizmo disabled. Let me try again and report back (and thanks very much for your prompt reply!)

    Yep. There is no item: Plugins > SkyMaxx Pro > Real-World Weather, only Configure Clouds and Configure Precip.

    SkyMaxx Pro v4.6 Has Been Released

    Hi folks, I recently did a fresh XP10 install under the latest build of Windows 10, including a fresh install of SMP v4.6 and RWC v1.1 (using X-Aviation's respective installers). Installation seems to have completed successfully. However, the SMP plugin menu no longer shows configuration options for RWC. Rather, the three menu items shown are 1. Configure Clouds, 2. Configure Precipitation, and 3. More from Maxx-XP. According to my Plugin Admin, RWC is running. I've tested this will all other plugins/scripts disabled and see the same result. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    I'm aware, but thanks again all the same.

    This occurred to me, yet also strikes me as kind of a strange (non-standard) protocol; e.g., suppose all I want to do is download some liveries that I bypassed on a previous install? On the other hand, if I select nothing then it seems that what should happen is nothing; i.e., the installer simply terminates. At any rate, thanks for your suggestion.

    Just checking in to see if the graphics resolution issue reported above had been investigated. Today it occurred to me to re-download the 340 from X-Aviation. However when I ran the installer the option to download the passenger version was disabled (ghosted out so I could not select it). Any idea what's going on with this? EDIT: While the passenger variant was not selected in the installer, it seems to have installed anyway. Also, upon first inspection this seems to have resolved the text resolution problem reported earlier; I will report back in the event that it reappears again in the future. While I'm at it, I wanted check the status on a couple of promised updates to the current v1.4.1 version for XP10. First, I am still hoping for an update (or patch) to fix the altimeter problem with the cargo variant (the primary altimeter stops incrementing at or above 10K feet, whereas the standby continues to record the correct altitude above 10K ft -- this seems to be a function that got broken in the v1.4.1 update, as it always worked fine for me prior to that update). Second is that I am rather hoping for a keyboard assignment for the nose wheel tiller on/off function (this can be quite difficult to locate and operate while keeping one's eyes on the runway during landing). I would be just as happy if the tiller control worked as toggle; i.e., on/off with a single mouse click (as opposed to click-and-drag). Finally there is the issue with the course selector (I've forgotten the details, but it's documented somewhere in this forum). Thanks.

    Fair enough, and thanks for your help. In the meantime I will continue to play around with XP settings to see if other rendering options make a difference.

    I notice that if I increase the texture resolution in XP (via rendering settings), the resolution of the console texture improves (but is still not as crisp as the passenger variant under the same settings).

    Near as I can tell, yes. The file size itself (for both variants) shows 3,289 KB.

    Not positive how to do this, but I opened both files with Paint.net. And under "Image/Resize.." it reports a resolution for both of 72.01 ppi (2048 x 2048). Does this sound about right?
