Hi There

I have this strange phenomena whereby when you sit in the Ju-87 cockpit there is a handle or lever just below the gunsight that pops in and out automatically. This doesn't happen all the time during flight but intermittantly during evry time I fly with the Ju-87.

Anybody have an idea what this is or why this is happening?

Thanks]
Gian

OK, I know exactly what that is.

1. It is the supercharger position control lever.

2. If it is going in and out "By itself" you have a key designated for it that may be bound to another key through your HOTAS setup.

Incidently, you should engage it around 2900 meters into position 2 for best performance of the engine. Also, running on it (Position 2) for a prolonged period of time below the recommended altitude will cause engine failure. Thus, remember to turn it to position 1 when you start your dive.

Hope that helps ya.

If you have the Complex Engine Management difficulty option switched off, it may be that the computer is swapping supercharger settings automatically.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the prompt reponse. Yep, I have complex engine management off and I thought that it might be the AI doing it.

Whish that it didn't go crazy though.

Cheers

It's probably the altitude you're at. Once you see it move, climb up a little more and stay there. It shouldn't move again until you dive.

Oops, I have never flown with CEM or stalls off. Heh, learn something new every day..

I have, however made mistakes in my HOTAS profile and had one button acting as both a directX button and a keyboard keystroke at the same time. That's always a fun bug to find. LOL

Yep, CEM off and it does that at 2600m and all alitudes above. Just tested in QMB.

HI Guys

Mmm... It the stick moves so fast as if the speed of light. It would be alright if it moves normally as if you would manipulate it. But it is as if it is flickering so fast does it happen.
