Also, I was trying out XWA Piloteer; is it possible to re-name the FongFong profile in order to have player profile without playing the campaign all over again?
nevermind, I just created a new profile and skipped all missions. It worked very nice and without having to edit the FongFong profile which was broken appearently

Awesome! The MCs definitely needed an update, glad to have a new platform, the container looks better, the Assault Frigate looks way better, and the asteroids look 500% better! Nice to have an updated UI, the mission changes will be appreciated, all the bug fixes and hook changes are great. Very nice stuff, guys!

I looked at the Config file and confirmed the last pilot as the one I was using. However when I start the game, it takes me all the way back to the start. I think it has scrubbed my pilot.
This is really strange since the installer itself does not touch the pilot file.
Did you check if the pilot-file is still in the directory of your installation? Are there maybe two files with the same name but only a different extension and might your old pilot-file be in the backup folder of the XWAU installation? Last thing I could think of would be do you maybe have two XWA installations and the link now points to the wrong one?
The pilot name was still in the directory of my installation but in-game I was right back at the beginning. There was no PLT file in the Backup folder. I don't believe I have multiple installations of the game on my system.

I have started playing from the beginning and it seems to be working fine. I'm actually enjoying replaying the missions with the updated visuals so I'll continue on with it for now. I might make regular backups of my PLT file in future just in case.

I just installed the pack and had a little play about in the simulator. Full flights of squadrons, capital ships, asteroids... WOW! It's absolutely amazing the job the team have done. It can't be understated how impressive the work you all do is and it's a testament to your dedication and the love we all have for this game that it still feels fresh to this day.

The improvements definitely pack their punch though. First time my game has EVER (from memory at least) crashed... and a noticeable hit on the FPS. Worth it for how beautiful it looks though :D
