I have been enjoying this amazing B-17 w/ AccuSim for a week, and am starting getting deeper into the simulation...
I just tried something while in flight: with MP at 26", I fully reduced the RPMs (using my controller axis). Propellers slowed down to around ~800 RPM. But then, I was unable to get them back to speed, even with full throttle. Reducing the throttle on any engine made it stall.
I managed to land, shut down remaining engines and tried to restart one: the RPM gauge then showed around 19,000 RPM (!)... something must have went wrong!
Can someone try and tell me what's the result?
Completely unrelated: I also started playing the well-known Bubble S-e-xtant. Works like a charm, however the "Distance" remain blanks, whatever the mode is (Start Shoot, End Shoot, Reset). I had to patch the XML inside the gauge to have it appear. If someone experiences the same problem, I will be glad to share the .CAB gauge file with the patched XML.
