JoinFS 1.3.0 test

Tried some multiplayer training tonight. Three pilots all connected to the same node using 1.3.0 and X-Plane 11.10. Learned the following:

- World Traffic 3 must be de-activated (ai conflicts)
- When a pilot changes another pilots Aircraft under VIEW->Aircraft, X-Plane freezes for a moment.
- Had some freezing issues while flying so next test we'll be running the node on a different computer.
- We did try another node but not sure if they were running 1.3.0 or an earlier version, same issue as above though.
- TrackIR also freezes from time to time while in flight.

While testing with 2 pilots on XPlane and one on P3DV4 the P3D Pilot could see the XPlane pilots but one XPlane pilot running the Steam version couldn't see anybody.

Had him try to change the aircraft under VIEW->AIRCRAFT but no difference.

Not sure if the issues relate to the plugin, client or PILOT. But this is a fantastic start Peter, thank you!!!

Hi Martin,

thanks for the report.

I'll start a list of plugins that are incompatible. Fortunately it's easy enough to switch plugins on/off as necessary.

I'm not sure I can do anything about the freezes during a model change, that may be just X-Plane loading the aircraft. However, if you had freezes from time to time, then perhaps it's something else. I'll see if I can track it down.

I use X-Plane under Steam so I don't think that was the issue. Did that pilot remember to add sufficient AI aircraft in the flight configuration?

Hello,

I tried to install the latest test version of JoinFS to test with X-Plane 11. However, when I try to launch the app it directly crashes (exception points to FileNotFound exception). Any idea what could be the reason. Using Windows 10 64-bit.

Hi,

Yes, someone else had this problem yesterday. Fortunately I realized what the cause was and have now fixed the problem in version 1.3.1, which will be out later today.

Thanks for posting,

Peter

First I'd like to thank you for all the work you do for us. I love JoinFS and am testing X-Plane with the guys. Unfortunately I cant seem to get the plugin to work at all. I have tried it on two computers and have completely deleted then re-installed the latest x11 version. Still does not recognize the plugin when added to the plugin folder. I'm running a bare bones stand alone new install with no other addons. This is not the Steam version. My other guys ARE running steam and it works fine for them. Just thought I would let you know there might be a difference between the two. Thanks for being here Peter, you are well appreciated in the flight sim community.

Hi Rick,

thanks for your kind comments.

How are you installing the plugin? I assume that you've clicked on Install Plugin from File|Settings. After you've done that, go to the X-Plane folder and look in Resources\plugins. You should find a JoinFS folder with 32 and 64 subfolders. In each of those there should be a win.xpl. Then with X-Plane running, go to the enable/disable plugins menu option and you ought to see JoinFS in the list.

Actually, someone else had this problem yesterday and it was unresolved. I wonder if non-Steam X-Plane is somehow different. I'll have a look into it. I doubt that it's anything major.

Thanks for the reply Peter....We each had 7 AI aircraft in our configuration. Mostly default aircraft or aircraft we had in common. I just installed 1.3.1 and we'll test it again later today.

Rick, could you try looking at the file Log.txt in the root X-Plane folder. Search for "JoinFS" within that file. Perhaps there was an error starting the plugin.
