    So: 1. Andrey has already put a warning label on his software stating that his plugin might not work with some addons. 2. Andrey has admitted that the problem with the Saab/IXEG/Gizmo is his/x-plane's problem and that he is working on a fix. 3. We should put a warning label on our products just to make you happy? Go find something else to do.

    Or you could argue that you donate to xEnviro because the bug is their problem. There is literally not a single thing I can do about it. They have admitted they're on track to a fix and have discovered that it is their problem. What would you have me do? Ask them for source code to their product? Your attitude is laughable.

    By their own admission, this is not my problem. https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/149092-xe-and-gizmo/&tab=comments#comment-1428322

    Low FPS in stormy conditions

    While your i5 might be "working fine" it's also working at almost half the speed of a modern i7. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i5-2500K+%40+3.30GHz&id=804

    FYI: The authors of xEnviro are aware of the problem and are working on a solution.

    License / Deauthorise

    Date shown is the date the machine was registered to the system. Probably correlates to installation date for most people. They're probably from Windows Update. X-Plane version has no effect. It's an OS fingerprint.

    Should be fine. Just don't change the author or description data which is used to locate the product in your purchase history and license data.

    Quote your ticket number here. Be patient. Sending multiple emails will reset your position in the ticket queue. Quoted delay is 3 days. If it's been two days and you send another email out of frustration you'll end up waiting upto five days. From the contact page: "Please do not send multiple e-mails or this will delay our response to you!"

    Try some flights in a different location.

    Saab 340 - can't get it to work

    Glad we got a result! I'll make a note to "offer an update check if a new unlicensed product is detected" for a future release...

    Log data is inconclusive but does show you opened the X-Plane map window and then five minutes later X-Plane crashes while(or just after) loading DSF files.

    Does MaxxFx work in naitive V.R ..?

    Always a good idea to include a URL with your counter arguments. "Reality for XP" leads nowhere in Google. If you mean the Reality-XP series of GPS units.. Laminars basic stance is that: - Mods and instruments -inside- the cockpit will continue to work as they already do. - Global drawing plugins like SkyMAXX and MaXX FX are hosed. Nerfing the global plugins gets them a big gain in rendering performance(FPS) and a small number of products broken for "a while". Nerfing the custom avionics and instruments for cockpit internals would break most, if not all, the custom third party aircraft that users have come to use and love, which would leave the sim pretty much dead in the water and piss off nearly every user they have. It's annoying but it also lines up with the customer base growth of VR users. It's still a growing minority group and we have a fairly long, slow timeline ahead to resolve this. Changes are coming to the sim that will allow higher-performance drawing on the global sim stage, we just have to wait for Laminar to add them and document them.
