Everytime I'm in the air I try to press ctl-E to bail out and it won't let me do it. Is there like a parachute button i have to press first or something? And, if I bail out, due to fire or something, do i automatically not complete the mission?

How fast you moving ? If you are travelling at 300 kmph you wont be-able to ...

Bail out parameters:

Must be moving slower than 350 KPH for fast bailout, slow down as much as possible.

Invert the plane, this way you don't smack the tail (not that you can)

press control E, canopy should pop off soon, pilot should have no trouble bailing out.

Fly the Hurribus Mk Ia, you will always be able to bail-out, it never flies that quickly. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Probably because you're wounded or dying, or the canopy is in the way, and like everybody said, slower than 350 Kts. Check your key mapping again, I've inadvertently cancelled keys I already mapped when changing stuff around, I use the "0/Ins" on the numlock keys, easy to get to.

I was going to suggest undoing your harness first. Ctrl h.

Actually your oxygen mask must be taken off (it had a thin metal frame built into the mask and the hose, hence limiting the ability to bail with it on, unless you wanted to be decapitated) before you can bail out without injury.

The preset command:

L+cntrl+leftshift+7+}logoff+DY9

You have to hit these all at the same time-key+universal
