Fun night, shame about the low turnout though.

Yes, I counted three fatalities, which didn't happen on Channel 4...

I did try to attend last night - and most Flight Nights - but as usual, as soon as I connect to MP and go Menu >> Multiplayer >> Pilot List, FGFS crashes to desktop.

I hope I didn't cause Oswald to crash out as I was his MP Passenger for all of 3 minutes before CTD.

This must be my end some how as it has traversed across 3 FG versions 2017.1.1 ; 2017.2.1 ; 2018.1.1

Do you think you have traced it with some certainty to the MP pilot list? Because at least then we'd have somewhere to start troubleshooting...

Don't worry, Porcy, it was a kind of hop on hop off stuff, but didn't cause my chopper any trouble. Apart from having missed you on the way ...:)

Having said that, I have problems with FG 2018.2.1 crashing again and again, so running 2018.1.1 that still works fine.

@Porcius:

Sometimes I do not even get a pilot list. Haven't yet found out when this happens because often it works fine. Yesterday was OK, but often the pilot list appears for half a second and then its gone. Never had a FG crash because of that though.

And I have to admit that within the last 2 weeks I made
* BIOS update
* OS update (Xubuntu 17.10 to 18.04) and together with that
* FG update from 2017.2.1 to 2018.1.1

So I have many possible culprits for failure.
On the other hand complete FG crashes are now very rare for me (even though (or because of ;-)) running Linux). Actually I can not even remember the last one.....

That used to happen to me too!

Pilots online is a pretty easy thing to pull from the property tree, so Porcy, maybe we could sort you out some kind of workaround if this is a perpetual issue. It would take me like an hour, probably, to code up an alternative pilots list. We might even be able to improve on the original...

We could also try this tonight if you're about - what I'd do is, first write a simple bit of code that replaces the existing pilot list menu entry with a simple pop up saying "Boo" or something, once we know that works, then fill that popup with pilot information instead, drawn in a simple way from the property tree. It might not have the ignore function and stuff like that, but simplicity might solve the problem in this case...

Moderator Hat On!

It just occurred to me that we - myself included - should probably take a technical discussion elsewhere, mostly for the reason that it will be easier to find in the future if it's in the right subforum, but also because this could get lengthy and that's not what the Media areas are for.

No big deal, but as this seems to be a topic that could help a lot of us out and could get big and heavy, lets take it to this dedicated thread .
