Gizmo64/ TerraMaxx issue


Recommended Posts


I was running TerraMaxx on X-Plane 11.53 without any issues in 2021 (March/ April).

I reinstalled X-plane in December 2021 and now I'm running v.11.55 on Steam @ Win64. Same PC as before.
Now TerraMaxx is no longer working and I cannot open the Gizmo64 console. No error message when trying to change seasons, but a TerraMax window displays the message "Loading scenery for default, please wait.."  when loading a flight after reinstalling TerraMax (which I've done 6-7 times now). When I try to change seasons nothing happens.

I believe I am running Gizmo v. Windows. That is what the plugin manager is telling me.

I have also tried:
- both OpenGL and Vulkan
- removed \Resources\plugins\TerraMaxx - \Resources\plugins\Gizmo64.plugin - \Custom Scenery\SeasonsXP - C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\x-plane 11*.prf - before reinstalling TerraMaxx
- download terramaxx from x-aviation several times
- copied Gizmo64 plugin to X-Plane after downloading manually from gizmo64.com
 - unlocked all zip-files before extracted (from x-aviation.com and gizmo64.com)
- high and low grapic settings in X-Plane

Other plugins I'm running:
- Navigraph Simlink
- XPRealistic Pro

I do not use any other scenery packages.

As mentioned I cannot open Gizmo-plugin in X-plane, but here is some of the text from the X-Plane log:

0:00:01.011 G64:  core: curl_easy_init() provided by:[D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\X-Plane 11\Resources\plugins\Gizmo64.plugin\win_x64\libcurl.dll]

What more can I try to fix this issue?

Never do this. Only use the version from X-Aviation installers.


Outside of that, Gizmo is trying to get you to activate your license, but you haven't done so. My guess is you are running multiple monitors and X-Plane is hiding the window somewhere.

Thanks for your reply. I do run multiple monitors, but I still cannot find any hidden windows. Do you know what kind of window it should be, and what the process is called?

I once again did a clean install of TerraMaxx after removing the folders mentioned in the opening post, and the X-Plane log is now saying this:
0:00:39.957 G64:  core: Run: [OnBoot]
0:00:39.957 G64: debug:     GK: Auto license update is on.

0:00:39.958 G64: debug:     GK-IPC: No license: (maxxxp.terramaxx)
License challenge failed; TerraMaxx disabled.

When using Alt-Tab I cannot find any windows other than the usual ones. I will try to reinstall later (now I'm a bit fed up).
