View Full Version : Noob question - How do you takeoff?

03-25-2007, 12:12 AM
Right so I'm sitting in my Yak on the airfield, first time I've ever played this game, and I can't figure out how to take off! I turn the propellor on (l) and I slowly start moving but when I try to boost my engine power it stays stuck at 5% (so I can't get enough speed). I tried using the WEP mode but obviously that overheats my engine pretty quickly... how do I get my engine to function normally???

hi and welcome

I dont know what version of the game you are using

as later versions have torque modled and are slightly different.

do you use a joystick or the keyboard ?

if you use the keyboard the power is stepped up by using the numbers on the keyboard

1= power0
2=power 20
3=power30 etc

if you are using a joystick make sure the throttle works in windows in game controllers in control panel and then check in hardware section of game it is working there.

You can find detailed instructions on how to take off , land etc in the user manual at www.airwarfare.com (http://www.airwarfare.com) - look under airwarfare legacy link and the answers to many questions in the user faq there as well.

good luck

The Yak-3R has two engines: the piston w/propellor and the rocket. If you currently have "Separate Engine Start" turned on in the difficulty options, you are probably only throttling up one of the engines. Just a guess.

It seems more likely that you aren't applying power at all. Are you using the keyboard or a joystick throttle? If keyboard, try hitting the 9 key to get to 90% power, release your brakes, begin to roll and then hit the zero key for 100% if needed. If joystick, then you may have a device problem.

O.K. i am an ACE at this game (if your playing v 1.2) all ya have ta do is move the throttle thing up on your joystick and then wait till your tail comes up then just pull back but if your using a key board then just press 0 and dos the same but press the down arrow key to pull up it's pretty simple
