I purchased the T-6 and it took several months of trying to finally get it to work properly. Worked fine at last but I used up all available downloads getting it to work. Computer crashed and had to be replaced. New computer, reinstall of FSX, reinstall of SP 2 Repurchased T-6 Displays perfectly inside and out. Engine wont start and control surfaces do not work and have no access to maintenance hanger. Purchased the P-51. Again displays perfectly no hanger, control surfaces work but engine wont start. I own A real P-51 "Warhorse" I am a pilot with a letter of authorization to fly it. I should know how to start the engine. so don't know what the problem is. I loved the T-6 when it was working almost like being there, extremely accurate (hence the repurchase) My first ride in any airplane was in an SNJ-4 and I bought half interest in it and then learned to fly in a T-6/ SN-J. I have owned three Beech 18s before my partner and I built the P-51 from crates and box's it took nine years. Got any answers as to why neither of the downloads failed to work? I have the Sky Unlimited P-51 and the SU T-6 they work perfectly as well as a number of other add ons including scenery that work properly. Thanks

One quick piece of feedback would be to

1 You don't need to re-purchase if you run out of downloads. If you ask here on the forums, A2A will reset your downloads. This assumes you purchased it from the A2A store.

2 how are you attempting to open the maintenance hangar? Shift-7? Do any of the menus open shift-2, 3 4, etc.? How about when you try to access these menus from one if the stock aircraft?

If the menus fail to open with the stock aircraft, you may need to check control assignments to make sure that show/hide panel 1,2,3,etc. are bound to appropriate keys. If the controls are bind then you will need to check of the transparency is set to 100% in the display control panel. If so, set it to 0%.

Next, unlike the real aircraft, you cannot fuel the aircraft the conventional way, and you also cannot use the standard FSX menus to fuel it. You must use the A2A provided menus to fuel up. If you can't access the menus then that would explain why you are unable to start, because you probably have no fuel.

Lastly, do you have the Accusim expansion for the P-51?

Let's see how you get on from here.

Hello,

just to add to Oracles response if you ever have problems, just post you'll find 99.9% of issues are just common little issues that can be fixed very easily. The more information you can give the better and quicker we can help. As Oracle mentions we can activate downloads as and when needed no worries just ask.

Can you let me know if you are using the old disc or steam edition of FSX?

You mentioned SP2 so I assume the old disc version, did you also update with FSX SP1 prior to FSX SP2?

Thanks,
Lewis - A2A

Zarp51;

First of all welcome to the A2A forums. My name is Dudley Henriques. I'm a consultant here at A2A and in the real world I advise on Warbird safety issues. I'm fairly familiar with the Mustang having flown it many times and advise within the P51 community.
I believe you will find many people here on the forums capable of helping you get up and running properly with our P51 and T6.
I see Lewis has already gotten involved and he is the "go to" guy for downloading problems.
I see you own a Mustang. Where are you based?
Anyway, welcome to A2A. I hope to see things straightened out for you so that you can properly enjoy the great simulation we created for the Mustang and T6.
Dudley Heniques
