  • XPD-14827 - GPU Volts not set to zero when ground services terminated
  • Fix setting of target RakNet port when selecting hosts in the network settings UI:
    - When using a non-default receiving port, the host could not be selected from drop-down menus on other PCs in the network - they would just copy the address of the host as if it was manually entered and use wrong (default) RakNet port.The problem was in set_beacon_to_use(), it needs to set raknet port to that of received beacon, otherwise get_beacon_to_use() will not match usage for any beacons.
  • Replay backwards compat fixes:
    - During the V12.0.8 beta and RC run, some unplanned changes to the replay file format slipped through. This makes previous 12.0.8 versions incapable of correctly loading replay or situation files saved by previous versions of the simulator, and vice versa. This is now fixed.
    - Loading situation or replay files saved at a custom airport would fail to load on a simulator setup without that scenery, this is now fixed.
XPD-14808 - Crash when destroying the aircraft_grid_widget and the full size render icon has been purged. XPD-14806 - Crash when checking for available readback command when not tuned to a valid controller. XPD-14800 - External visuals go into infinite loading loop.

  • XPD-14779 - Tons of PNG iCCP warnings with zibo & 12.0.8-beta2.
  • XPD-14775 - Re: Bug report “Complement to my last submission “impossible to push back.........“”.
  • XPD-14554 - Tips during load don’t rotate anymore.
  • XPD-14774 - Performance Regression reading “sim/aircraft/view/acf_livery_path”.
  • XPD-14750 - Bug report “Carrier snaps and violently pulls aircraft to catapult location when taxing close”.

  • XPD-14753 - Planemaker: can't select "None" for tank-moves-with-wing option in weight/balance
  • XPD-14638 - In FakeVR mode, the mouse cursor is behind windows and the panel and can't interact:
    This fixes the depth readback being broken in fake VR mode as well as the blue bar at the bottom of the VR preview.
  • XPD-14746 - Blue bar at bottom of VR rendering:
    Fixed the fake VR window being valid memory and allow de-referencing it, leading to the blue bar bug in 12.0.8.
  • XPD-14748 - Lightning Strikes Glitch Frame on OS X:
    This fixes flt_rand to not create a new random device (an OS call) per flt_rand call - this was costing 30 ms in an optimized build on my Mac per lightning strike
  • XPD-14777 - CDU #2 datarefs may get truncated depending on current CDU#1 page:
    CDU#2 datarefs use wrong size function (for CDU#1), so text on CDU#2 may get truncated (or have garbage) depending on what is shown on CDU#1. Likely caused a by copy-paste error with CDU#2 dataref defs.
  • Fix 737 - ground power avail light to be in sync with sim:
    The annunciator in the 737 would indicate based on logic that was similar, but not identical to the sim, thus making the light out of sync with the actual power. So, deleted the custom logic in Lua script that would handle the "ground power is available now" annunciator light in the 737 cockpit, and instead hooked up the annunciator to the actual GPU voltage available in the sim.
  • Restore fuel valves init to "any" for multi-engine planes:
    Restore fuel valves init to "any" for multi-engine planes with no 2D fuel selectors (this matches 12.07 behavior for C90, MD80, with no plugin setting the fuel selector on start up).

  • XPD-14740 - Crash due to broken navdata not being handled correctly
  • XPD-14735 - Dataref Read/Write Ability Gone

  • XPD-14673 - Hot Start CL650 crashes on startup due to a previously writable X-Plane dataref having been changed to read-only
  • XPD-14717 - Aircraft Class in Analytics Needs to be Untranslated
  • XPD-14721 - New Gateway/Global airports recut!
  • Further tuning of pitch-down effect upon wheel spin-up
  • XPD-14729 - Thousands of new log warnings: Fixes flood of iCCP: known incorrect sRGB profile in log.
  • XPD-14716 - FMOD event velocity is apparently set the same as the vehicle velocity: FMOD events in the past did not take rotational velocities into consideration but now they do!
  • Fix fuel temperature NaN on airplanes that don't have wings: This fixes the NaN crash on the NHadrian planes that only use misc wings and no wings 1-4.b
  • Fix OpenXR Frustum Junk Data: VR Frustum and Interaxial are no longer junk for the first few frames if the HMD isn't ready to render just yet
