Xpilot is crashing and no airplanes are visible


Recommended Posts

So, I have used XSquawkBox for a while but decided to switch over to Xpilot. Now I suffer major issues. First of all, it crashes every 5-10 minutes. I have a pretty good computer and no other tabs are open, so that shouldn't happen. I also don't have any plugins, except for one that is neccesary for my Saitek switch panel. My other problem is that when Xpilot and X-plane 11 is up'n running, no aircrafts are visible. That is of course a big issue because I need to see the planes that are taxiing, departing, e.t.c.

So, do anyone have the same problem, or have any idea how to fix this?

Much appreciated, Max.

Is xPilot the only plugin of this kind, in your plugins-directory? Is xSquawkbox still there? Better move the XSB-folder to somewhere outside /plugins.

Yup, it's the only one. I have deleted XSB completely.

And Xpilot isn't even a folder in the plugin directory. It's an .exe file.

I use swift, but I suggest you stay with xPilot or xSquawkbox. There's no reason why xPilot will not work on your system.

If your X-Plane does not have any plugin related to xPilot, then something went wrong during the installation. I suggest you shutdown X-Plane, de-install xPilot and install it again. X-Plane must NOT be running when trying to install or update xPilot.

What is crashing? Is the xPilot client crash or X-Plane crashing? What version of xPilot do you have installed?

If X-Plane is crashing, look in the output/crash_reports folder (inside where X-Plane is installed) for a .dmp and/or .rpt file from the crash. If one or both exists, please upload to a file sharing website, such as Google Drive and share the link here.

If xPilot is crashing, can you look for a GlobalExceptions.txt file in the folder where the xPilot client is installed? By default, it's installed in %localappdata%\xPilot.

Please also upload the X-Plane log.txt file to a file sharing website (like Google Drive) after the crash occurs.
