Hi all,

First post, So be gentle http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'v got IL2-FB AEP for about two weeks now and I'm lovin the game. Can't fly full realism yet though, but I'm trying.

Now here's my question, everytime I do the single mission for the HE-163 Komet, as soon as it starts it says Engine inoperable, whereas I haven't even touched a button yet. I really want to try this freak plane out, so does anyone have a clue as to what is going on?
It might be the difficulty settings, as I have complex engine management and the second option off, could this be the problem?

I really don't want them on, as it's hard enough for me to keep the planes in the air, without having to think about prop. pitch etc.

So anyone have an idea why I can't start this thingy?

Thanks in advance,
Holyspliff

PS Is there a Dutch (or anyother for that matter) squadron around that could teach a newb how to really fly? I fly mostly BF109s, all YAKS (although some of them really lack firepower) and lately the P51-D.

To fix the Komet you need the 2.01 patch.

Get it from :- http://www.3dgamers.com/games/il2sturmovik2/

As for Dutch Squadrons...
try www.1java.org (http://www.1java.org)

They seem like a friendly, helpful bunch.

Thing is I've already patched to 2.01, maybe something went wrong there?

Does anyone have experience with this patch not installing correctly?

Thanks for the link to the squad

you have to press the stick away from you until you reached some reasonable speed. then you can slowly move the stick back to center position.at least thats the way i do it.
