Hey guys!

How come I can't get the fuel mixture to work in planes like the P-40 and P-47, despite the fact that they have a lever that clearly states it adjusts fuel mixture? The P-51 and P-39's won't let me adjust mixture either, but maybe they're not supposed to...

No, I'm sure I'm doing it right since it works for the LaGG's and the A6M2 and others. Any explanation for this? I'm just easing myself into the wondrous world of CEM, and I can't figure this one out. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Your doing nothing wrong it's just for some reason not all planes can be adjusted.

You mean in the game or IRL?

Could have been an enrichment lever for cold weather operations or help cool down after heat build up.

In game those planes use an automated system. The P47 for sure had an auto fuel mix system by default...but your probably right that we should still be able to manually control if we want. Maybe next game engine http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

ACtually all the P-40s and P-39s and P-47s had working mixtures in the original game IL2 FB 1.0) that were taken out starting with the first patch. A shame. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

it use to be there in previous versions but it was taken out of the game for some reason. it also makes you really notice the difference at low alt taking off and reaching top speed before climb.

The only us aircraft that still has it is the p40 field mod 100-120

the pilot manuals state p39s p47s p40 and p51 had mixture control full rich for low altitude and normal mix for high alt, also they say the auto superchargers can be switched over to manual for saving fuel consumption and max performance in pilot manuals

you really notice in the p47 taking off and in accelaration and dive accelartion where the 109s are beating them in dive accelartion when flying in manual but will break apart slighty before breakup speed which is the onlyway to out run them. you can notice taking off with a full bomb and rocket load 50-100 fuel the p47 wont make most runways when taxing to the edge of the runway

also the accelaration speed is effected alot by the removal of the mix on us aircraft at lower alts and is effecting the aircrafts performances alot. Hopefully it gets corrected
