Hey all,
Has anyone else had problems getting the Me-163 to start? When I'm sitting on the ground (like after entering a multiplayer game) in the 163, it gives me the "Engine: Inoperable" message.. and no matter what I try I haven't figured out how to get the engine to start up. The 163 works fine offline in quick missions - or at least the engine runs fine with the air start and all.... I haven't tried landing and refiring the engine if that's even an option.. So is there a secret to getting the Me-163 up and running...?

AFAIK this is a known bug and will be fixed in a forthcoming patch. I have heard of people being able to ground start it although I am not sure how.. (or even if this is true) so it looks like we are stuck with air starts for now. Or at least those lucky ones with AEP are (still waiting on mine - Monday, with any luck! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif)

Hope this helps

i was in a game and somebody starting an me-163. i asked him many times how he did it, and finally realized that he lived in russia, and had just gotten the game. the bug must have been fixed for that version.

I've seen it done online and the procedure they used and I'm not telling. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

It can be started online or ofline, but only if certain settings are used (very arcade ones...)...I flew it many times on-line in DF servers...but it can be very adictive...after I went to prop planes I was feeling that I am playin in slow motion. I HAD to play for a while only in jets to smother the transition.
