XPOI 1.8 and P3D V5 - POI Names are one letter?
« on: June 05, 2020, 07:29:37 pm »
When XPOI first comes up, all POI's have their full "names" in view. As you fly for about a minute or so, suddenly they become abbreviated to a single letter. I have taken out EVERYTHING XPOI, EVERYTHING Virtuali, Reinstalled from the new download page with the latest (1.8). Brought it all back up and the same problem occurs. I even re-purchased XPOI (again) to be sure I was getting the latest. Still no luck with the single-letter identifiers.

We'll check this but please, don't "re-purchased" something if you think you have a problem with it. Always contact support first.

Also, don't post on the public form, when you have been already supported by email. You started this by email so, please, continue by email.

I wanted to be sure I had the "latest". I have downloaded the latest.  I have since:
1. Uninstalled FSDreamteam XPOI
2. Got rid of the XPOI.ini in Roaming
3. Deactivated the license for the 1.0 program ... using the OLD activation code for "1"
4. I then ran the setup_xpoi.exe
5. It installs fine
6. When I start P3D V5, it is listed under Addons and is checked
7. XPOI is also listed under Add-Ons (where you enable/disable it)
8. It starts off enabled ... but nothing now shows at all
9. Under products, I clicked on the xpoi and then clicked on the registration key
10. I put in the NEW code (manually as recommended with hyphens).
11. It says it is activating ... goes 0 to 100, then repeats and repeats and repeats.
12. When I get out of that, a window comes up asking me to activate my license or deactivate it.  I put in the NEW activation key, and it says it is invalid FOR "1" Product version, notice it is not mentioning the 1.8 version.

Now I cannot even get it to come up at all.  If you look back at our history, we had the same problem with the single letter showing when we were going to P3D V2.2.  The problem was P3D had flagged something wrong and you fixed it in the next installation. This looked similar, but now, of course, nothing works.  Thank you.

I came here because I didn't hear from you there. Sorry.

I'm trying to install the 2.2 version.

You cannot expect an immediate reply, especially during weekends. And as I've said to you, both by email, and here, we are checking it so, please allow us some additional ( working ) days to have some time to look at it.

No problem, Umberto. Why don't you delete this thread since it might confuse people.

Hi,

I purchased this last week and I´m having exactly the same issue: distant markers are ok but as soon as you get close to them all text is put together in a single character. I tested it with P3D5 HF1 and HF2 but it´s still the same. In case there´s already a fix for this could you please let me know how to solve it? Thanks

Cheers

I'm sorry, but we have been so overwhelmed by other things ( updates for P3D V5, updates for GSX still in progress, work on the new MSFS ) that we couldn't find time to check this.
