View Full Version : Experiance any weird crashes

06-27-2005, 06:15 PM
After installing 4.01m I have had a few crashes where distruction should have been the end result. Some times I might skip along the landscape (with no prop damage)engine running just fine with wheels up. Any clues ?? Thanks

Probably an unfinished damaged model. Seems like I remember, a long time ago in a IL 2 patch far, far away - the same thing. I hit the ground in a dogfight and bounced with no damage. It will probably be fixed in the next patch. Do you remember what plane it was?

Difficulty settings.

Check for realistic landings.

Don't argue - just check.

I'd second that. Some time ago I inadvertently had realistic landings off and couldn't understand why I could (sometimes) bounce off the ground in a crash. Do as Waldo says...

Turning on "Realistic Landings" solved the problem. Thanks guys,and thank you Waldo...

Wierd crashes..yes. I heard a banging sound and next thing I had no rear fuselage. No matter what I did the plane went straight down and crashed...wierd! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
