Title: XPUIPC for X-Plane 64 bit
Post by: w9nwrwi on February 12, 2013, 03:03:50 PM
For those that run X-Plane 64 bit and have missed your Plan-G some good news.   :)

XPUIPC 64 bit has been released.  It is available at:  http://www.tosi-online.de/XPUIPC/XPUIPC.html (http://www.tosi-online.de/XPUIPC/XPUIPC.html)
It runs on both the 32 bit and 64 bit X-plane.

There is an important Readme.txt file within the zip that you need to read for proper installation.

I gave it a go with Plan-G version 3.0.2 and all works just fine.

Dear Daniel,

I have Plan-G perfectly working with FSX and Prepar3d. However, whatever I try there is no connection with Xplane10 
I have  single PC, no networking.
I downloaded XPUIC and the plugin in Xplane and the sim tells me it is connected through my IP4V address, so that looks oke.

When I choose the XPUIPC option in Plan-G nothing happens, the location is good, the database is build but nothing happens.
Whithout Plan-G the Xplane or another simular way to plan your flight the  sim is borrowing and I prefer to use Prepar3d instead.

What I'm doing wrong?

In X-Plane 10\Resources\plugins\XPUIPC, there is XPUIPC.ini.

Open it with notepad. For a single computer, the server address should be:

XPUIPC Version 1.0.2.3 ini file

[XPUIPC SETTINGS]
Tune value = 00
Server Address = 127.0.0.1

Hello to you people.
I too have tried XPUIPC, and X-Plane 10 does not connect with Plan-G.
X-Plane 10 does not seem to recognize XPUIPC as a plug-in.




I am running Windows 7 64 bits on an Asus  P5Q Motherboard
with a Intel Q9505 @ 2.83GHz,  8Go of ram and  Nvidia Geforce GTX460.

Well after re-installing XPUIC, it finally works.
Do not forget to write your ip address in the ini. file

I am running X-Plane V.10.41 and using a second screen from the same computer.  It is a new loaded PC running Windows & Pro.

I have Plan G on second screen as well as X-Plane on main screen.  I have the X-Plane data migrated into Plan G, but, whenI try to connect Plan G,
It's highlighted, but no connect.  I would like to see my flight progress in X-Plane on Plan G.
I see postings about wi-fi connections, which I have, but from the same PC ???
What would I use XPUIPC for ??

Thanks
Sid

You need XPUIPC to connect Plan-G to X-Plane.

Hi Tim

I have just purchased a Windows 10 tablet and installed Plan-G on it.  My Windows 7 PC and my tablet are recognising each other but, obviously, when I go to run Plan-G on my tablet it asks for the data base.  I've tried directing it to my Xplane on the desktop of my PC and also tried to import the data files from the Plan-G on my PC but it won't seem to do it.
I have the XPUIPC installed in Xplane but I notice you have to write something different in it for two computers as opposed to a single PC?
Should I try re-installing XPUIPC?  What is my best next step?
(I've gone to my folders for Xplane and both Plan-G's on both computers and gone to preferences-sharing-advanced options and made sure anyone can share the files.. is this correct or should I have left this alone?)

I've spent time going through the manual but I'm clearly not as clever as I thought I was! It was hard to take but I'm over it now. I know you're gona point me to the page I should have been looking at. lol

I've no idea about tablets, but if it can be treated as another PC, just copy the Plan-G Files\Data folder to it, install XPUIPC and configure it for client PC operations. (I no longer have a second PC, so it's not something I can test). Maybe you have to put the files on a USB stick and transfer them that way?

You need to make sure the tablet can communicate with the PC over wifi if you're going to connect.

I have read other threads on this and tried almost everything but still no joy.

I installed xpuifc, then tried Plan-G using the new zip file for 64bit that supposed to be good for XP11, I tried as administrator, tried with XP running, tried it without XP running but all I get is the scrolling bar that runs forever.
I even left it running all night only to find nothing had changed, I saw a few posts where some have managed to get it working but lots of posts where others haven't, and I'm one of them lol.

When I look in my documents I see folders for:
Flight Simulator Files
Flight SimulaterX Files
Plan-G

When I look inside the PLan-G folder I see folders:
Charts
Data
DEM
Profiles
WX
Plan-g_Log (text file) 62kb

So is it trying to build a database and failing?

Hi Tim,
After a bit of tweaking I got Plan-G to work in a fashion with X-Plane 11, I went in the 'File' 'Options' 'FS Connection' and directed it to XPUIPC I got the yellow plane icon on the map and it coincided with the user aircraft in X-Plane.
The thing is it never loaded any data from X-Plane, all I got the was the scrolling bar but I loaded the data from FSX, not sure if it is reading that or not.
Can't post the log it says it is too big.

Hi Tim, I never thought of zipping it up sorry, my old age mate.  ???

Post by: tim arnot on June 12, 2017, 08:32:11 PM
1. Start Plan-G
2. Click on the Data tab.
3. Click on the Build Navigation Database icon.
4. Click the Settings button.
5. Fill in the location of your x-plane.exe. Click OK
6. Select "Build X-Plane Database" (which should now be active)
7. Click OK.

Should take no more than 10 minutes on a slow PC.

Sorry Tim but I've been doing that all along, anyway I just tried it again, the scrolling bar started so I went for breakfast, after around 45 mins still nothing, I'm on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, X-Plane 11, I also have FS9 and FSX and their data bases have built no problem.

If it's still going after 10 minutes, it's failed. Stop and send me (attach to this thread) the log file.

Either use the build attached to this post: http://www.tasoftware.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=3578.msg17454#msg17454 (http://www.tasoftware.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=3578.msg17454#msg17454)

or create the following folder on your PC D:\X-Plane 11\Resources\GNS430\airspaces

then it'll build the database.
Title: Re: XPUIPC for X-Plane 64 bit
Post by: Col1948 on June 18, 2017, 06:17:25 PM
Hi Tim,
I presume the folder goes on my D drive is that correct, if not where does it go?

I thought I had it working at one point it started to build but got stuck on writing runways, it went in an endless loop.
So I started again, nothing happening yet.

Edited:

Bingo!  It worked, thank you, I misread your post, I created the folder inside the Resources folder, that's what you meant sorry, just the way I read it i did it wrong.
Any way it fired up now so I'm up and running with X-Plane 11.  :D

Hello Tim,
I just switched from P3D to X-plane 11 2 days ago. After some searching on the internet I found out that Plan-G can work with X-Plane via XPUIPC. After some trail and error (because I'm a real no-no with all this things) XFIUPC is installed on my pc (latest version: 2.0.4.8). Opend Plan-G and tried to build the datbase for XP. Failed (of course-problem of my life :-)), it kept running and running but nothing more happend. Looked into the Plan-G forum and after creating the "GNS430", and the sub-folder "Airspace" in it (which is quite an achievement for me) the data base was build. But.... it refuses to connect with XP. When I click on the connect button I hear the connecting sound but, when I click on the "sync" button (it was on "free") nothing happens. So I am just partially out of the woods. What information do you need, and where can I find it,so we can try to solve this problem?
By the way: after checking the "Airspace folder" is an empty folder after the building of the database. Could this info lead to any clue?
Awaiting your reply,
kind regards,
Eddy

Tim,
I just think of something. Could it be a problem that my XP is on another drive than where my Plan-G is (for P3D)? Should I instaal Plan-G also on my XP drive?

Regards,
Eddy

Is your X-Plane running as administrator? If so, Plan-G must run as administrator too, otherwise they will not connect (all to do with security levels and permissions).

X-Plane 11 changed its data format compared to earlier versions (this has nothing to do with why you can't connect to the sim), and that caused some build errors in Plan-G. Make sure you are running the latest version (3.2 build 144), which will correctly build XP11 databases.

Post by: FLYING TIGER on January 11, 2018, 03:33:49 PM
Hi Tim,
thanks for replying quickly. I checked everything. I have the latest build (3.2.0.144) and I run both .exe files (Plan-G and X-Plane) as Administrator, but to no avail. Still the same, got the sound of connecting, but clicking on the "sync" button doesn't change anything. It stays on "Free".

!!!  Just to check it, I opened P3D, in the Data Tab I changed to the P3D Data Base and it's the same thing. Plan-G stopt working for P3D also. Maybe this provide you with extra information.

regards,
Eddy

Hello Tim,
I hope I did it right (I am very clumsy with computers  :-\), and I never zipped a file before.

Hi Tim,
I already replied to your request for sending the log file but untill now no answer. Just wondering if I did something  wrong, or didn't you had the opportunety to look at the log file yet?

I don't wanna push things but if something went wrong it would be stupid to sit and wait for nothing to happen.

Eddy
