Try it with ¼ flaps.
List your computer system specs, cpu, memory, video card etc.
Do you have SP1, all the Windows updates and the latest DirectX (9.0c) installed.
What aircraft is it.

How long are your runways?, What's your elevation, temp? What are your engine settings? Most heavy aircraft take anywhere from 5000' min to 8500' for take off, even more if you're already high and hot---- like 5000' field elevation at 98 deg. I just dropped into Las Cruzes New mexico in the 737, 4400' elev 97 degrees F. and I took every bit of the 7500' rnwy to get stopped. Even though indicated airspeed was 145kts, actual ground speed at touchdown was more on the order of 185 kts. At that density alt. I won't be able to take the 737 out of there. I'll have to wait until early morning when it's cooler to get out of there. My point; Density altitude can have a HUGE effect on takeoff and landing performance, often times making even midsize arpts (7000' rnwys) inaccesible to larger planes.
