B-1B Lancer problems.......

Recommended Posts

I am having some issues with the new Lancer on the front page.1. No textures in VC view.2. Panel has a 3 inch gap at the bottom of it (runs along bottom of the screen)3. The aircraft will not take off. I have tried full power with brakes and letting it go, full power w/o brakes, flaps, and w/o flaps...What is going on here??:(Shane

I am also getting a warning that some gauge or other is incompatible with FS 2002. Don't remember the exact file name, but it has something to do with the parking brake.

Same problems. I got it in the air with the slew control. Still looking for the rest of the VC textures. If this is an indication of their payware stuff, they better quit now.

As we were creating the install package, we left out one of the textures for the VC. There should be a fix tomorrow as well as hopefully a patch at the end of the week. It has nothing to do with testing. Everyone's human right? Julian

Same problems here, plus I fell through the ground on takeoff roll.This was not ready to be released. Atleast it was freeware, so nothing lost.

Glad to hear that it was a "snafu"(leaving a file out). Hope you will also address the 2D panel size. Apparently a lot of people, myself included, are not getting the panel to fill the Window, leaving a gap at the bottom. I can stretch the panel to fill the window, but it also stretches all of the instruments.Pete S. ==Near Oklahoma City==

Just downloaded and besides the 2D panel gap issue I kinda like this bird!For those having takeoff issues:1) Reduce fuel load to 50% on all tanks2) Make sure your wings aren't in the swept back position, use the flap switch to bring em forward, and use the first leading edge setting.I got the bird off Dyess Rwy 16 no problem at all.I hope they fix the panel issues because this bird could be alot of fun I think!!Chris

This plane should be able to T/O with way more than 1/2 full fuel. I can not make it off the ground either....so i will read some more. I love the visual model and the different paints. Alot of hard work has gone into this bird...I know that fixes will be coming.. Since I have never flown/rode in one of these I have no clue as to the FDE etc, so I am not about to complain......My hats off to the team over at I3D.

Comon guys, you call your selves flight simmers. Don't you know that there are afterburners on that bad boy, light em up and away you go. shift+ F4 if you don't remember, lets stop saying "can't get off the ground" and get some flying done. HEHE, good luck men and women.Troy

Yup that does it! Didn't know about that AB feature since all of the airliners I fly do not have that feature! Thanks!

This isn't your typical airliner. :)Be sure to ck the flight manual as there is information in there. Be sure to ck the site for updates. jdPS: Thanks for the kind words guys.

I've got the first two problems.... The last one I figured out. You need to have an Afterburner (or Reheat depending on where you are) key designated. You'll know when it's engaged by going to a spot view and seeing the 'burners all pop off. It's a really cool feature.

Ahh yes, the afterburners!! I couldn't access the manual myself so I did the reduced fuel load... will try her out later.. Chris

No sound, can't access the manual even with the newest version of Adobe Acrobat, panel doesn't fit screen. Looking forward to a few patches/updates/upgrades.

I helped with some testing of the Bone, and this is what it takes to fly it. It is unlike any other aircraft, it is not a fighter jet, more like a faster and more agile B-52 than a F-15. If you have a force feedback stick turn force feedback OFF, it causes some problems with it. Next, for takeoff you do not need to dump fuel out, it will take off fine. First rev up the engines to full MIL power, let them stablize, then kick in the burners, if you are in the cockpit you will see the plane jump, and speed climb fast. Make sure to have a few degrees up on the trim, as she is a bit nose heavy. That should do it, if you still can't take off, keep on trying, you are bound to get it sooner or later.

I believe that before you make any judgements on their forthcoming payware that you should first ask for help or seek help in a forum such as this.I read everything in the forum and I just made a takeoff, circuit and landing in the B-1 with only minor problems.Orville and Wilbur didn't get it right the first time so let's give these folks a chance.The model itself is a wonder to behold with the many compound curves,effects and the intricate modeling of wing sweep.I'd prefer to be part of the solution instead of simply stating that it doesn't work.I myself look forward to a forthcoming patch to address any of the problems with the aircraft.Craig

Had all the problems mentioned above.With some software it's too little too late.In this case it is too much too early.I think i'll give the guys a week more to fix up things.I see no need to start tweaking just to get the plane off the ground.Norvald Olsvold
