Checklist: Check before your 1st flight
Updated 35 Days AgoPublic

General (all simulators)

OS specific

  • macOS: Enable the microphone for swift, see No sound on macOS (loopback not working)
  • Windows, make sure swift can access your microphone, Microphone not working on Windows
  • Linux Hotkeys: We read keyboard and joystick stuff from /dev/input/event* and js*. Those files have to be readable by your user. Typically they are owned by group input or such so if you add your user to that group then it will work.

XPlane

  • use the 64bit version
  • make sure XSwiftBus is installed, and it is the correct version (XSwiftBus and swift client require to have the same version)
  • Make sure other pilot clients are uninstalled (as those most likely interfere with swift). Disabling the plugins might me NOT enough, remove them from the plugins folder.
  • CSL files need to be inside the XPlane folder, it is advisable to avoid spaces and special characters in the file paths
  • disable other simulator plugins using multiplayer planes (such as other pilot clients, or traffic tools) may conflict with swift. Or entirely move them out of the plugin folder if you have problems such as not working animations (gear down), see Troubleshooting installation and 1st start under XPlane.
  • for BlueBell models apply the vertical offset fix (make sure to do this correctly and NOT ending up with cascaded directories)

P3D/FSX

FS9

  • make sure FSUIPC is installed, swift needs FSUIPC to work properly
  • If you run FS9/FSUIPC as "Admin", run swift as "Admin"

Check the connection of swift with your simulator
