View Full Version : Problem with Keyboard

09-21-2008, 08:43 PM
I just started flying 1946 and am having problems with certain keyboard commands. I tried raising the gear by pressing g and it did not work. I then remaped the gear command to another key and it still did not work. Everytime I press F8 to switch to an external view the game exits to the desktop. Does anybody have any ideas???

The F4F Wildcat and the I-16 have manual landing gear. You must assign a key to Raise Gear and another key to Lower Gear. You must push the key repeatedly until the gear is all the way up or down.

Look down and to the right inside the cockpit of the F4F as you hit the raise gear key. You will see the hand crank turn to bring the gear up.

Also when your gear get damaged on aircraft such is IL2 (has automatic gear operation) and it stuck and wont move, you can pump it down manually!

I had that prop with IL2 several times, got hit by flak and it damaged my gears I discovered it by accident that I can actually manually lower my gear.
