Hey Gents,

I don't normally fly multiengine aircraft (except in real life) but when I start the Beaufighter in PF, I can't prevent it from spinning around on the ground. I tried locking the tailwheel and that didn't make any difference.
Is it possible to straighten it out with differential engine power? As far as I can see, you can't map a yoke to control each engine seperately in this sim, but I could be wrong.

Make sure you select all engines before throttling up.

That's probably because you have just one engine selected. Try it with both engines http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

The throttle (and CEM) works for all engines you have selected at the time.
Just switch off Seperate Engine Start in Difficulties http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You need to map engine 1, 2 and select all engines. Once you start engine 1 and 2 you can then select all engines. This will synchronize both engines and you will not spin. Make sure throttle is set to zero when you start.

Yep, as the guys have said. You will have to map a key to Select Engine One, map another to Select Engine Two then map a third to Select All Engines. You would start engine one, start engine two and then select all engines before throttling up.

bah! I'm way too slow on the keyboard.

Or a single engined Yak-9B with full load of PTAB-2.5 bomblets. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Now for a real challenge try taking off with an AI Tu-2 with 3xFAB1000. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Agreed, I wished there would be a way to change the rudder profile on the fly (I hope SoW:BoB will support that). Having a setup in which you can make fine adjustments for strafing and keeping a bomber straight doesn't work so well. I could have sworn it was easier with my twist stick than with my rudder pedals. That's why I pick the JU-88 most of the time it works better with my profile.
