Getting Started xPilot
For an indepth tutorial from the xPilot team please head here.
After you download xPilot, double-click on the downloaded file to start the installation. By default, xPilot is installed into the local application data folder (similar to Google Chrome) so that there can be no file permission problems. If you change the installation folder, be sure to specify a folder that does not need administrator privileges in order for xPilot to be able to write its configuration file.
When the installation is complete, you will have the option of launching xPilot.
To start xPilot, double-click the desktop icon (if you chose to create one during the installation) or locate xPilot in your programs list and launch it from there. xPilot runs externally from the sim so it is not launched from a simulator menu like some other pilot clients are. Make sure you run xPilot in administrator mode or otherwise you will not be able to press your ptt over the sim.
The first time you run xPilot, you will see a popup window with a message indicating that you need to install the xPilot plugin. Follow these instructions carefully as prompted and ensure you correctly selected the required X-Plane path. After the plug-in is installed a message will open asking you to start the configuration of the client. Click the Yes button to open the Settings window and configure xPilot.
Once installation is complete there are numerous settings tabs to configure. Please read the full tutorial here to fully understand each tab. In short, you must set a Push-To-Talk (ptt) input your password, name and ID as well as making sure an appropriate sound output and microphone device are selected. For the use of model matching like BlueBell you can read the full tutorial from the xPilot website, while it may look confusing it is rather simple and easy to follow.
