  1. I thought I would start a new topic in case anyone else wants to add their comments. Just did a very short flight with the new x-plane update version 12.0.1 beta. All the systems seem to work well. The day and night lighting look good and I'm not seeing any dark cockpit issues in the daytime. I'm not sure if any modifications had to be done but the transition at least for me went well. Thank you all for your hard work.

  2. I have fixed the issue I had, and already tested in 12.1.0b2. Needs a bit of clean up, testing for any unforeseen bugs, and then getting into release procedure. Here some late captures.

  4. Hi just had same issue again with B3 and all its Zink bug fixes, Now this could be triggered by Xchecklist, as it start flashing around same time, Odd it only affects CDU1, The other issue im seeing is the radios, VHF, I assume the left is comm one but it seems to switch between the two. Havnt quiet got my head around it just yet.

  5. I haven't reported it yet, but I can confirm that it manifested even before the beta. To temporarily restore FMC, just tap on the left menu or gizmo menu Then the problem comes back. I always fly always with Zink, I think Zink is the problem

  6. You’re not on Linux so please don’t use a totally unrelated thread for your issue, it’s confusing for everyone. Step 1. Disable Zink, it’s not supported by CL-650 1.7, and was auto-enabled by LR in 12.1B1.

  7. I did notice a minor issue that I believe that I may have created by playing around with the new "Robust Contrast Adaptive Sharpening" (RCAS) setting. After setting it to 100%, the Captain's FMC display seem to layer one display over another, the more key inputs I put in, the more the screen layered on top of the old display. After a while with no further input the display started to clear on its own. I did another flight after restarting X-Plane and left the (RCAS) setting on 0% and the problem did not reappear. Not going to file a bug unless others experience the same issue. Also, the first officer's FMC did not display any issues at all.

  8. I've been fighting with it for over a week now. I have hundreds of (mostly) problem-free hours with the CL650 on this exact machine. I took a little break recently, and now that I reinstalled my system I'm getting some weird errors. ------ MACHINE ------ i7-12700K, RTX3090 & ARC 310, 64GB DDR5, NVME SSD. I'm running Linux Arch (6.9.1), and Hyprland WM (Wayland). I have 2 GPUs in my system, I use ARC 310 to run the system on startup and for light work, the RTX 3090 if for heavy use in the host (Nvidia Prime) or in my Virtual Machines when need it. I can load and unload Nvidia kernel modules on-the-go and use the GPU when I need it. I know it sounds convoluted, but it works perfectly and it's officially supported by NVidia. X-Plane 12 runs very well on my system. When I run it via nvidia-prime it is the only process on the GPU, and I enjoy smooth 80fps+ graphics. I own multiple payware aircraft addons and they run perfectly fine (Felis 747, VMAX 767-400, X-Crafts E175) on this system. To be clear I've tried to run the CL650 on a vanilla XP12 installation first with the same results (crashes), so you can't blame the other add-ons. I have no extra Plugins installed in /Resources/plugins (besides what the installer puts there). ----- SYMPTOMS ----- (1) The aircraft (v1.7r1) loads just fine. I'm presented with the "Select Mode" screen. When I click the "Career Mode" i see the list of the Airframes, I can create/delete airframes and edit avionics options just fine. Now what's weird is on the right side (Saved States) the status is showing as "Parked" and Position "N00 00.00' E000 00.00' 0 KIAS at 0 ft. When I click "Enter FBO" the button changes to "Confirm?", and when I click that it hangs. It doesn't crash-to-desktop per se, just hangs. And as I later found out the X-Plane is dumping "--=={This application has crashed because of the plugin: Challenger 650 by Hot Start}==--" into Log.txt file at a rate of about 1GB per 10 seconds (yeah). Millions of lines. I have to issue a kill command to end the process and stop writing. (2) When I load the plane in "Non-Persistent Mode" it starts just fine (cold-and-dark). I did a couple of flights with it in non-persistent-mode and everything seems to be working fine... until it's time to shut down the sim (or change the aircraft) - when you press Alt+F4 (or select Exit from the menu) it hangs again just like in the Career Mode. ----- LOGS ----- I uploaded 2 logs - one from X-Plane (Log.txt) - I had to cut the end of it as it was over 500Mb of "--=={This application has crashed because of the plugin: Challenger 650 by Hot Start}==--". One thing I see right away is line 190: dlerror:/home/raf/X-Plane/Resources/plugins/Gizmo64.plugin/lin_x64/Gizmo64.plugin.xpl: invalid ELF header Then I get a bunch of sound FMOD errors, but the system doesn't' crash on that, it crashes after line 3927 "BOOT: pl21_fini" I also ran strace on the X-Plane-x86-64 (X-Plane.strace), once again I had to cut the file as it was over 1GB in size, but you can see X-Plane plugin requesting state.bin file located in /Output/CL650/airframes/<airframe-id>/state.bin but the file isn't there. I manually created an empty state.bin file inside that catalog to see what happens, and once I did that CL650 did NOT crash in Career Mode after clicking on "Confirm?". I was presented with another window stating "You have checked "Restore position and trajectory" but the state was saved very far ... from X-Plane's current location. Clicking "OK" will move you to that distant location." And after clicking OK - it hangs... Log.txt X-Plane.strace

  9. I've tried that. No joy. I also tried removing the /Output completely and let X-Plane rebuild the files. Still the same. I went as far as installing XP12 and CL650 on my Win10 Virtual Machine and then copying the output of /Output/CL650 into my Linux host X-Plane/Output. That time I could actually see proper coordinates when selecting the airframe, but the sim froze after clicking "Confirm?" just like before. Now what's REALLY odd is the model works beautifully in "Non-persistent mode". I did 2h+ plus flight today, no issues. I'm suspecting the plugin or a function within that plugin responsible for creating and/or reading "state.bin" file is the culprit.

  13. Yes, X-Plane 12.1 changing the X1000 logic flow breaking the current state tracking. We will be pushing an update to the SR with fixes once they are ready and XP 12.1 goes final.

  14. I guess they dont, thats why they hired all those extra people, just to mock us all, and I guess all the graphic improvements, CPU performance currently worked on and all the weather, aerodynamics improvements come about because they dont care. I wonder how many user really care about laminars efforst??

  16. I want to get the IXEG 737 but I would like to be able to own both the X-Plane 11 & 12 versions if possible. I see the X-Plane 11 version is now removed from the store. Please, is there any way to get both versions of the aircraft? I would be willing to pay for both if I could get some kind of package discount for buying both versions of the aircraft. I still use X-Plane 11 a lot for many reasons and I want this plane in both sims.

  17. Yes, the installer is still downloadable and works for prior X-Plane 11 purchases.

  18. Hi and sorry to bring it up again : besides all the pros and cons, since I am using X11 more than X12, will the installer for the X11 version still work in case I loose my installation ? Regards Joachim

  19. What kind of complexities would make it so difficult to keep the XP11 version available for sale on the website? That doesn't make sense to me. I don't know a lot about hosting a site that sells downloadable products, but it can't be that difficult to leave it up on the store for people to buy and download. I mean, there's nothing else you really have to do (as far as I know) except keep it available in the store than just let it sit there for sale (with a "no longer supported" disclaimer) and keep the "master" copy of the aircraft on the site (or wherever you keep your downloads) available for people to download it. What else do you have to do that wasn't already done really? There's an FSX/P3D aircraft developer that was named Milviz (now called Blackbird Simulations), they made a lot of high quality payware. About a year ago, they decided to drop out of the FSX/P3D market and focus on MSFS and then they did something very awesome for the FSX/P3D community (yes, they still exist), they re-released all 25 of there FSX/P3D aircraft as freeware and made them all available for anyone to download on their own website which they host themselves: Blackbird Simulations - Freebies (blackbirdsims.com) If they can make 25 legacy aircraft available for download for free on their site, why can't you just keep one single legacy XP11 aircraft available (for sale)? Can it be that difficult to do? As for still wanting to use XP11, I am certainly not unwilling to deal with XP12 because I own it already, I just don't use it much rn. Though it is an improvement over XP11, It's not nearly as impressive as I had hoped it would be and not much better than my heavily modified version of XP11, most of the time I find myself firing up XP11 instead. Also XP12 is barely even out of beta now. For XP11 I have many aircraft that are not and likely will not be updated for XP12 that I still enjoy flying, I have my Orbx TE scenery (most of which is not yet XP12 compatible) and loads of other types of scenery as well as many other kinds of add-ons, in fact, I have XP11 looking nearly as good as XP12 does and in some ways even better looking. I'm not going to give up XP11 and the several hundred dollars' worth of add-ons I own that goes with it just to use XP12 which has very limited amount of content compared to XP11 rn and it will likely take a very long time for developers to do their thing and make old add-ons fully compatible (many converted XP11 to XP12 aircraft and other add-ons still have plenty of bugs & other issues to work out as well as the newly released content) as well as make more new add-ons. There's still a lot of upsides to still using XP11 for me. It is going to be a very, very long time before I switch to using XP12 on a regular basis, probably at least a few years or so, in fact I'm thinking about uninstalling it because I use it so little and it's taking up so much storage just sitting there. I'm not buying the IXEG 737 if I can only get it for XP12, it's not worth it to me. I'm also not going to buy the new LES DC3 for the same reasons.

  20. Absolutely not unfounded. ;-) The specification of my computer absolutely does not allow me to enjoy the benefits of XP12 using IXEG in VR mode (that's the only way I fly). In XP11, with all the additions and "improvers", it achieves a completely smooth VR simulation in any region, in any weather conditions. I have an XP12 and I am fully aware of its superiority over the XP11, but I have no pleasure in flying it. If I upgrade my computer, I will definitely switch 100% to XP12, but for now, the VR mode in XP12 is very lame. And still if I want to fly IXEG, I fly in XP11.... ;-)

  21. Hello, I'd like to join the question. I have both X-Plane 11 and X-Plane 12 installed. Unfortunately, I'm experiencing fluctuating performance in XP12. Toliss runs great, but Felis not so much. With the IXEG 737, I'm worried I might encounter similar issues in XP12. Does the purchased version work in XP11 or not at all? If so, I'll just stick to flying in the old sim and wait for XP12 to hopefully run better with future updates. Best regards, Timo

  28. Surprised to see this was not responded to. This is a very detailed aircraft, it is a shame you cannot use your georeferenced MAPS with it. Avitab was ok for its day (long ago) but have you seen the new tablets coming out with the new aircraft? A tablet with a performance calculator, balanced field length computation, and more is needed for such a high fidelity bird. Also it would be nice to have the engine sounds in the back with the speakers, and what little ATC there is to come through the headset...just saying...fine plane, but if x-plane won't do it, maybe HOTSTART will - it will only improve the product.

  30. It may be worthwhile for this plane, to have a pop up that reminds people to back up there navdata before continuing, at least until the FMS upgraded to xp12 format
