  1. X-aviation licensing window

    XP 11.20r2 has been released and this problem has now been fixed. Update to r2.
  2. X-aviation licensing window

    I spent the day writing a clean-sheet plugin in C to Proof-of-Concept this so Laminar can trouble shoot as efficiently as possible. I have been able to reproduce the issue. At this stage it looks like the error is not actually in XPLMDrawString(...) but some other OpenGL related code. Probably best if I do not continue to speculate. The exact root cause will reveal itself soon enough.
  3. X-aviation licensing window

    I seem to have located the root cause of this problem. At this time I believe it's on Laminars end as it's calls to the SDK function XPLMDrawString(...) that are creating the problem. We're working with Laminar to resolve the issue and hopefully we'll see a fix shipped in 11.20r2.
  4. Problems with MU-2 v1.8 on xp11

    This space station... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Space_Station
  5. X-aviation licensing window

    I've been able to reproduce this bug on my local machine by forcing X-Plane to use my Intel GPU. I should be able to make some progress resolving this now.
  6. MAXX.FX 1.0 - Will Not Install

    Remember when Apple actually made quality products?
  7. X-aviation licensing window

    I cannot reproduce this bug on my 970m. I'm still searching for the pattern of what causes it. It seems to be related to 1070 and 1080 cards but some users do not see a problem. I've made contact with Laminar today to see if we can gain any insight into what might be happening but without a consistent set of data as to what causes it I can't give them much solid direction either. For now, use a non beta install of the sim. The VR beta branch is undergoing many changes under the hood to optimize the XP rendering engine. I'm as annoyed as you are.

    Please post your Log.txt and GizmoLog.txt files.
  9. Unable to activate

    Just tested b5 on my Windows machine. No issues. Time to try and figure out the pattern... I suggest running in a bare demo copy (of the beta) with no additional plugins except Gizmo64. You could also try opening: XP Menu > Plugins > Plugin Admin > Enable/Disable See if it looks correct; e.g. Note how all the text boxes, buttons and checkmarks are drawn and available to use.
  10. IXEG 737 and X-plane 11 Installation Issue

    The IXEG product installer.
  11. Please post your Log.txt and GizmoLog.txt files. This will help determine what the true cause is. What looks like "exactly the same problem" probably isn't.
  12. IXEG 737 activation failure - gatekeeper.lua.gfys

    If that doesn't fix it, post Log.txt and GizmoLog.txt files.
  13. Gizmo Activation/Features issues

    Multi monitor is a known issue. Multi screen support is new with XP11 and something we're yet to deal with. Hi-DPI scaling is also a newly supported thing. Life complications behind the scenes have been slowing me down. Hopefully I can start to address some of these things this year now that life is looking more stable. Glad to hear you got the issue resolved.
  14. Gizmo Activation/Features issues

    nVidia TITAN X... nothing wrong with that. Very odd. Haven't seen any reports like this, even from VR users. I mention VR because your log shows you're using 11.20 b4. As a temporary work around you could try loading a default aircraft and then manually opening the X-A activation window by going to; Menu bar > Plugins > Gizmo > Windows > X-Aviation Licensing. If the glitch you're seeing is caused by the Saab systems you should see the activation window appear correctly. You should then be able to input your account details and download a copy of your product license database. After that you can try re-loading the Saab and see if it will at least let you fly. As I said, I've never seen anything like this. Their is a similar issue with the IXEG product and Intel GPU's but they use entirely custom GUI widgets and not the standard SDK stuff. If the above fails you could try using the non-beta version of X-Plane to test against. It may be a Laminar bug...
  15. Gizmo Activation/Features issues

    My guess is you have a strange GPU... probably Intel. Can you please upload/attach a copy of Log.txt so I can verify which type of graphics card/chip you have. Thanks.
