  1. IXEG 737 license/usage question

    This will be fine. The DRM only cares about the number of different machines you install on. You can have as many copies as you like on one machine.
  2. New X-Aviation Activation Policy

    You are the shopping mall equivilant of the loud annoying asshole that shoves to the front of the line interrupting everyone elses day to get themselves priority service. I have no patience for it.
  3. New X-Aviation Activation Policy

    ok. Now you've crossed the line into flat out troll territory. This isn't bit rock. This isn't your problem. This isn't your thread to throw a tantrum in. Grow up. This is a pathetic attempt to draw attention to your pet issue. Camerons at FS Con. Your timing couldn't be any worse.
  4. Nice to have

    75% of customers have moved to XP11.
  5. 737-300 IXEG for Linux

    That's a minor error that only applies to Gizmo's scripting systems. I'll tidy it up in the next release to cut down on confusion. Glad to hear Gizmo is working for you, enjoy your flights! Thanks for reporting.

    This won't be changing. Sorry.

    If you're going to shit post at least do it properly with references so people can make a truly informed choice; https://www.bbb.org/central-florida/business-reviews/modeling-and-simulation/x-aviation-in-port-orange-fl-90323303/reviews-and-complaints "Numerous"; aka "4 complaints closed with BBB in last 3 years | 2 closed in last 12 months"

    FMC code is probably filename related, I'll dig into it later, if you can rename while you wait for an official patch I'll post. Sound files: Ok, thanks. I'll take a look.. ErrorReport: Known issue. Planning on pushing a more user friendly Error Trap than simply popping the Console with some red text that you have to find. Nothing to worry about.

    Thanks for confirming it runs in the wild. If you have a patch list for the IXEG filenames I can see about getting adjustments made in the main packages. At some point I'll put together a Gizmo64-Dependencies-Virtual.deb file which contains a text file and a bunch of dependency definitions. (I think I have /var/usr/games/Gizmo64/readme.txt or something...) Still not going to offer "official" support but patching things like filenames to smoothe things out a little is doable. Enjoy!
