Known Incompatibility: X-Plane 11, XSB 1.3.2 and the IXEG 733 1.0.x

Yesterday night I was able to confirm that there is a compatibility issue that exists with the specific combination of:

  • the IXEG 733 version 1.0.7 (and presumably earlier) with its respective version of Gizmo
  • XSquawkBox Version 1.3.2
  • X-Plane 11.0r1 (also known to affect the betas, but does not affect X-Plane 10)

The bug will result in Legacy CSL aircraft failing to load their textures, and significant VRAM usage proportional to the amount of time Legacy CSL aircraft are visible in frame.

Until the IXEG 733 is updated with full X-Plane 11 compatibility, I can only recommend that you do not use it with X-Plane 11.  If you must use it with X-Plane 11, then you will need to use XSquawkBox 1.3.1 until XSquawkBox 1.3.3 is released as 1.3.3 will contain a fix for our half of the problem.

Please do NOT report any further bugs relating to this combination of software to Laminar Software, to VATSIM, or to myself.

A Quick Fix for Older Linux Distributions

In order to provide support for older releases of Linux (such as those based on Ubuntu 14.04), I’ve been able to produce an alternate build which statically links the C++ runtime.  There are no other changes in this build.

This build should be used if you are getting errors about “GLIBCXX… not defined” and “CXXABI… not defined” in your Log.txt file.

You can find this build on the Downloads page.  As the download only contains the relinked plugin file, you will still need to install the main download first.

If there are no reported problems with this build, this will become the standard build type for future Linux plugin releases.
