Can't Get Off the Ground When Mission Starts

Recommended Posts

I've Installed CFS3, it plays smooth. Then I installed OFF with 1.30 patch. When try to fly in quick combat mission everything loads up fine. The only problem, I can't start the engine and I have no control of the aircraft. I push the "e" key to start the engine and I have no response. All function keys work, the HAT on my joystick works, and esc is also fine. Sometimes I have a message flashing "simulation loading", I've sat and waited to see if the message would stop but it never does.

 

Other than that the game looks great, I followed the ATI graphics FAQ and now the game is pleasent on the ground. Just would like to get airborne. Any ideas?

I've reinstalled OFF twice, and the only thing I get when I'm on the runway is "loading Simulator" "Start engine" and "brake applied" The mini radar works and seems like the entire interface still works. I just cant get the plane moving.

 

 

My install use to work. I stopped playing for about a week, came back and the planes will not take off. So I reinstalled it several times now and still no go. :blink:

 

Hope someone can help.

A couple of suggestions, but I haven't heard of this particular problem before.

 

When you hit escape, can you go to the controller menu and assign keys to your joystick? Is your configuration set to "Mine?"

 

Try the Graphics Config button in the Workshops menu. Make sure your video sliders are not set too high for your system. You might also click on Window and select Overrides to make sure that everything is set as recommended.

 

It that does not work, try clicking the "Reset CFS3 files" or the "Reset OFF" buttons in Workshop.

 

When you uninstalled OFF, did you make sure to delete all files, including hidden files, before reinstalling? Make sure to delete the OFF folders in your My Documents folder, too.

All of this is very good advice, especially the last paragraph. Just to add- when you say you installed CFS3 and played it and then installed OFF, had you updated CFS3 with patch 3.1 first, BEFORE you played it and then installed OFF? If you are using the original CFS3 discs ( not the Ubisoft DVD version ) you need to update the CFS3 install with the 3.1 patch

Prop-Wasche, Yes I have the flight controls set to "mine" I've looked over the controls and the axis of the joystick are assigned, and the game see the joystick in the box below flight controls.

 

I'll try recommended, but as of right now I have all sliders on 1 with the best resolution for my monitor. I will try reseting the files as well.

 

Yes when I uninstall the game I search through my drives for folders that work with OFF.

 

 

Thank you sirs for the advice I will put it into action.

How are you launching the sim? From campaign or Quick Combat?. If you choose "mission" then you will start at the gui, and have to then click on the medal and go through the left hand menu to eventually fly.

Just go to Quick Combat and see, or try a campaign from OFF Manager?
