Did you try troubleshooting, making sure you had installed the updates etc? As you can tell from the forums, your experience isnt normal.
Thank you. Actually yes, I've tried just about everything. I just do not have the patience to deal with all the things that go wrong with Accusim aircraft on my particular installation. Accufeel doesn't save settings correctly with other non-accusim aircraft, and I've a feeling that the .dat file with the B-17 gets corrupted on a regular basis for perhaps the same reason. When this happens, the engine start sequence get totally whacked and things go downhill from there.
I spend about 4 hours troubleshooting for every one hour flying and it's just not worth it for me. The Accusim B-17 has always behaved this way on my computer system ever since it was first released, even through multiple re installs of everything. A lot of things go wrong, not just the engine start behavior. Sometimes the copilot fails to make call outs during takeoff, etc. Things happen pretty randomly, but rarely as they are supposed to. I haven't posted with my myriad problems before because I simply gave up a long time ago.
This is my last post here and again, I'm sorry for going off like I did earlier. To be honest I loathe FSX in general for all of it's shortcomings and problems. Have a nice evening.
