If you have content that worked in 864 but does not work in 9, please file a bug! Please do not assume we intentionally changed the file formats to break compatibility…I would rather get the bug report so we can fix X-Plane than have you change your work.

For every author who changes his or her work in response to a bug (an accidental breaking of compatibility), we’ll have dozens of users who find their add-ons not working but not knowing how to fix it themselves.

With that in mind, beta 16 will have two fixes:

  • Some panels were showing the default instrument backgrounds over custom panels. This will also be fixed in the next beta.
  • Lit customized overlay parts were not showing. This will be fixed in the next beta.

So if you see those bugs, please check your plane against the next beta when it comes out. If you find other problems, please file a bug!
