Trouble with B-17 for FSX

Post by [email protected] »

Please direct me in the right direction. I am new to Flight Sim and want to fly a b-17 in FSX. I have over 300 hours in sim with Cessna 172, Diamond DA 62, and Cessna Longitude jet. I am having trouble getting my A2A downloaded B-17 to work properly. Since I crashed the plane and it shows propeller damage and I am not able to fly. I also have not been able to access any menu to go to the Maintenance Hangar or other menus such as those shown on YouTube videos 1-5 for A2A B-17s. Any suggestions or direction help would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the A2A forums.

The first suggestion here would be to make sure you've downloaded and installed the legacy Accu-Sim update for FSX. It can be found here.

Links to the manuals for the B-17 can be found in the "A2A Simulations" in the Windows start menu. When it comes to repairing persistent damage via the pop-up 2-D panels, these are opened using the Shift 2, Shift 3, Shift 4 etc. key combos by default.

If you're still having problems seeing them, let us know. Sometimes it's because the default key assignments have been remapped or because the 2-D panel transparency is set to 100%.

Thanks,
Nick

Thank you, Captain Nick, Sir!

That did it! I just finished my first start-up, take-off and cruise.

I appreciate your help very much!
