XGoFlight 3.0 Alpha 2 now available for Windows/Mac

The second development release of XGoFlight 3.0 is now available for Windows and Mac users. Notable changes in this release include:

  • MCPPRO: Boeing 757 Professional profile added (vmax_757)
  • Major revamp of configuration file format
  • Added ability to disable modules within the configuration file
  • Several bug fixes and performance improvements

The configuration file changes should be backwards-compatible with all but the EFIS module.  If you are using the old format, it will be notated in the log file.  It is also important to note that modules cannot be disabled via configuration file without using the new format. The new format replaces the “function” key inside each configuration item with a unique key.

Here’s an example of the new EFIS configuration format:

The keys are equally unique for the SECM and MESM modules.

For the T8 module, the keys (e.g. “wpt”, “arpt”) are “switch_1,” “switch_2,” all the way up to “switch_8″.  For the RP48 module, the keys are “rotary_1″ to “rotary_4″ and “button_1″ to “button_8.”  For the P8 module, the keys are “button_1″ to “button_8.”

Lastly, to disable a module, simply add a key called “disabled” and set it to true.  For example, to disable the LGT-II module, use the following configuration.

X-Plane 10.30 Beta 1

There are a few key changes in X-Plane 10.30 Beta 1 that have the potential to affect the operation of the XGoFlight plugin, most notably changes to trim interpretation.  As I work on the third development release of XGoFlight, I will take this into account.  If you are using the beta release, please feel free to send any bug reports my way.  The same applies to XHatSwitch and XRemoteFMC.  Thanks!

XGoFlight 3.0 Alpha 1 for Windows now available

I have posted XGoFlight 3.0 Alpha 1, which adds support for the MESM and the SECM modules.  This release also shifts from a profile-based EFIS configuration to a command and dataref based configuration, and contains several performance improvements and bug fixes.  I still have some more work to do on documentation, but below are several links that will help get you setup.

NOTE:  This is a development release.  It is not stable and requires further testing, which is why I want to get it out there.  The development release is strictly Windows-based, but rest assured, the final release will include the Mac and Linux versions.
