How do I start a twin engine plane in IL-2? This is just killing me.

...or switch off the "seperate engine start" difficulty setting.

all of which can be done by pressing esc controls in game and selecting them in the menu there, as no one seems to have told you where to switch them off

OK, I've been in the controls settings and toyed around with them before I posted my query. There's something obvious I'm missing. Specifically, what settings are y'all using? Then, specifically, what key sequence do you use to start? Thanks for your patience! (The default setting for "toggle engine" is the "I" key. Flying a single engine plane I press "I" and it starts. So in a twin engine plane I've monekeying around with "toggle left engine" "toggle right engine" "toggle #1" "toggle #2" "select" this and "select/unselect" that and nothing works.)

Use toggle engine. Unselect all but one engine, then hit I to start it. Unselect the now running engine and select another. Repeat n times, where "n" is the number of engines on the aircraft.

For example, in the He-111, first select engine 1 (via your newly assigned control) and throttle to idle. Then press "I", and select engine 2. Throttle to idle. Press "I" again. Then select all engines, and your engines are ready for taxi or starting. The first He-111 training track explains this and many other things, have a look. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You're using unneccesary steps.
Just assign buttons to engine 1,2 and both.
Throttle idle, select one, start, select two, start, select both, go

(My start sequence: h(one),i(start),j(two),i(start),t(both), throttle!)
