Ok, im pretty sure Im doing something stupid.....
I really CANNOT get afterburners/reheat to turn on, on any aircraft (FS2004), Ive downloaded quite a few military jets, some of which even state in the description that it should work..... I see SHIFT + F4 is the standard key, but this has no effect, what am I doing wrong
Please help... Rolling down the runway in an F18 with not all that much acceleration is very frustrating... any ideas?
If you put the effects that came with the aircraft into the main effects folder they should work.
Is it a 2004 model and try the "/" key.
no change, I have put the effects things in the folder still nothing happens..... Its odd, I feel like im not doing something obvious
I know just what you mean.
If you can give us the name, zip and where you downloaded it maybe we can take a look.
It's difficult guessing.
downloaded from this site...
I got the tomcat working,It works fine with the afterburners kicking in at full throttle (No other command required), unless you crash once or reset the flight.... from then on the afterburners only come on when the aircraft lights are on, turn the lights off and the flames dissapear too...!!!!! CRAZY
Im gettinng the impression that afterburner effects arent a priority when it comes to doing a new model!!!!
There isn't much you can do with that.
Be happy that it works, many of them don't.
Something I learned long ago, never forget the price, the designer gave it to us and didn't charge.
If this helps, fine. I may be off base BUT!!!! Several aircraft that I have that have burners, I have to add some things.
READ the aircraft cfg and panel cfg instructions concerning VC gauges. If the VC lines are not intact, the burners won't work!!!!!!!!
REMEMBER!!!! If your installation is automatic AND/OR you do not know how to/want to alter the cfg files, disregard this reply. 😉
I just re-read your post. I see where you are refering to 'lights'.
The burners work by 'light' commands. It is just the way it is!!!!!! I can help you get flying if you want. BUT!!!!! It entails dealing with reading/altering the aircraft and panel cfg files. 😳
