Re: An-2 Ground Handling, Please Help!

This will enable steering on the ground using the rudder, the tailwheel must be unlocked first. The tailwheel animation will not follow the movement. Go to your aircraft.cfg [contact_points] section and edit the first line point.0 = 1, -25.85, 0.00, -2.48, 1300, 0, 1.0, 180.0 , 0.2, 2.0, 0.9, 0.0, 0...

Re: How to disconnect exhaust gases?

If you go to the effects folder and find fx_AN2_engsmoke.fx fx_AN2_engsmoke_bl.fx fx_AN2_engsmoke_wh.fx perhaps also fx_AN2_exh_blue.fx and move them out of that folder, most of the smoke will be disabled. Please note If you do this, each time you load the aircraft, you will be asked if you want to ...

Re: it is unacceptable!!!

Here, I have reproduced the problem you have. The problem is caused, I believe, by settings within your saved default flight. Aircraft loaded from a default flight with another addon aircraft. http://fsfiles.org/flightsimshotsv2/images/2014/10/08/9vSCb.jpg You should be able to resolve this problem,...

Re: Can't operate wing flaps

Perhaps this picture will help?
With the switches like this, for me the flaps work
with the VC controls, my keyboard presets
and assigned joystick buttons.

Open Windows File Explorer and navigate to the address given.
Right click on init.exe and select Run as Administrator.
On my PC, this opens a box with my e mail address and the
product activation code in it.
You may see the same or perhaps an option to fill these lines in.

Re: CTD when exiting FSX after flight

Guys, I've recently updated my computer and after installing the An-2 again on a pristine FSX-installation (with Acceleration) I too started suffering from the CTD on exit. Edit: as some have suggested, it seems the culprit (at least on my system) is the " DisablePreload "-line I had added to the "...

Re: CTD when exiting FSX after flight

That was probably me, I have certainly posted on the subject. There is, in the list of commands in Settings\Controls\Buttons\Keys one named Aircraft (Reload) . You will need to assign a button or key of your choice to this command as by default, it is unassigned. Once the aircraft has been reset, al...

Re: CTD when exiting FSX after flight

I count eight posters to this thread who have had this problem. If only eight copies had been sold, it might be a huge issue and definitely a fault in the model. Given the resolute refusal to remove at least the one clearly identified cause, itself a tweak of dubious value, in some of the eight case...

Re: CTD when exiting FSX after flight

I have just re-installed Windows 8 and FSX. In its unmolested state, there is no CTD. I never saw one before this either. Sibwings have stated more than once in this thread that as they cannot replicate the problem, they cannot address it. It seems to me that the problem is user specific, in particu...

I cannot replicate the error either in Dx9 or Dx10, DisablePreLoad=0 or =1, with or without the AN-2 in the default flight. Instead of complaining, perhaps you could help?

Re: CTD when exiting FSX after flight

It loads all photoscenery, if you have that, I have a lot. For example, if I load Russia, where I have none, FSX is running in a minute. If I load Western Europe, where I have photoscenery for all of mainland UK, Spain, Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg it takes about five minutes, even if the default...

Re: CTD when exiting FSX after flight

I have no wish to try and change your mind, however like many people, my installation of FSX has grown to over a terabyte over the years. I avoid the long waiting times in two ways. Firstly, I keep all my aircraft in a seperate folder and only put those I am currently using into the airplanes folder...

Re: What does the small key in the cockpit do?

Very well spotted indeed. I love the sense of humour that seems to have infected this model from the developers. :grin: I wish it were more common among some of the the others, who sometimes seem to lack one altogether. I also love the way that this model just does everything right, no excuses, no f...
