    Metal for Mac

    Apple does not allow for the proper OpenGl call access when Metal is in use, so we are unable to bring this to Metal. Laminar would need to have a Metal plugin SDK, and for now that's not on their table.

    Next released update.
  4. Captains, This will serve as a formal forum announcement that we have released the version 1.1.2 update for the BN-2 Islander. All customers who have purchased the BN-2 Islander up till now have been sent an e-mail by X-Aviation with complete instructions on how to obtain your update. We have made this a very simple process! For those that purchase the BN-2 Islander from today forward, your purchased download will already be updated to version 1.1.2 for you. What if I didn't get the update e-mail? If you did not receive your update e-mail don't fret! X-Aviation has updated our system to allow all customers to update with ease, regardless of whether you received an e-mail for the update! Here's what to do: 1. Login to your X-Aviation account here: https://www.x-aviation.com/catalog/account_history.php 2. Find your original BN-2 Islander download and re-download the file. It will download as the latest version! The following is a list of additions/fixes included: Improvements / New Features: [IS-363] - FMOD tweaks to improve sound Installer now auto-installs latest G5 if purchased and installed on computer Bug Fixes: [IS-374] - Fixed HPA Altimeter baro texture [IS-375] - Glideslope indicators were not visible at night [IS-379] - Autopilot Disconnect Button Fix [IS-380] - NAV/HDG HSI Flag Fix As always, thanks for being a customer with X-Aviation.

  5. I am able to load X-Plane on Catalina in Metal no problem (of course SMP does not work, but the sim loads fine). We have no plans to bring SMP to Metal because it is simply not possible. Apple does not provide access to OpenGL when Metal is in use, unlike Vulkan. This is what is needed in order for us to bring SMP to Metal. Laminar also has their hands tied on this one.
  6. Because you have a product of ours installed that you didn't purchase. Either purchase it, or figure it out on your own. Not going to help someone who has tried to steal our products.
  7. Did you somehow get the impression the TBM takes over X-Plane's rendering engine and tells it how to do anti aliasing? Surely not, right? Do you say the same thing to the third party plugins whose dirty code is getting exposed? Just curious since you seem to be a programming genius.
  8. Configure a button for AP disconnect and move your joystick/yoke down!
  9. Not at the moment, no. You can use a button on your joystick for each brake should you need to.
  10. A rudder does not steer a Cirrus on the ground. They use a caster wheel system, which means your left and right breaks are used for turning.
  11. 50/50 chance of either!
  12. May not look correct. So, does it look correct when you load it?
  13. Try re-naming X-Plane/resources/plugins/Gizmo64.plugin/firmware/assets/ca_store/cacert.pem to _cacert.pem with the underscore.
  14. It'll be going through a round of beta testing soon. We'll announce things accordingly.
  15. It's related to data syncing in the cockpit and not DRM. There is no sharing of data between the networked PC's.
  16. This would not be a very straight forward implementation (if even possible), primarily because the source for the FMS is coded in Gizmo/LUA.

    I've never had anyone mention this Anti-Virus to me in 11 years.
  18. Cameron


    Your anti-virus is junk. Get rid of it. Avira seems to be deleting your TBM plugin after you re-activated the anti-virus. There's nothing further we can do to help you.
  19. Perhaps at a later date, but for now we have much bigger fish to fry than re-coding the call-out system!
  20. I do not find comparisons to other products any bit useful or meaningful. Programming methods, APIs, and the way in which things overall interact with the sim are different product to product. We don't have source to other developers' projects, and thus, it's just a baseless, honestly useless comparison that conveys a pure lack of knowledge on the customers' part that this is not apples to apples. That's the honest, blunt, to the point way of saying it. I'm not trying to be rude, just real. My honest pet peeve in the tech support side is literally the "no other aircraft" card. To me, it has nothing to do about competitive nature at all.
