XSquawkBox 64-bit (Windows and Mac)

XSquawkBox 64-bit is here for Windows and Mac in the form of XSB version 1.11. Work is occurring on the Linux version, but we do not have a planned release date yet.

It should be noted that the packaging of XSB has changed with this version. Make sure you follow these instructions:

1)  Move your current “XSwquakBox Resources” folder out of the X-Plane/Resources/plugins folder to a safe location, such as your desktop.

2)  Once you unzip the new version of XSquawkBox, inside the “for plugins folder,” you will find a folder called “XSquawkBox.”  Drop that entire folder into your X-Plane/Resources/plugins folder.

If after doing this step, XSquawkBox does not appear in your plugins menu in X-Plane, you have not installed it correctly.

3)  As you desire, you may drop custom resources such as CSL’s from your old “XSquawkBox Resources” folder into X-Plane/Resources/plugins/XSquawkBox/Resources (the new location for such files).

Note:  Due to changes in the Apple compilers, XSB 1.11 supports Intel-Macs only, and OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and later.

64-bit XSquawkBox: We Have Audio

We have received a potentially useful Mac audio patch, and we are following up with the author now.  I am out of the office next week, but I will try to post something more definitive about future beta plans later in August.  In the meantime, we are all set for code contributions.
