WAMA keeps pulling mixture to off

Recommended Posts

Hi. I’ve been having a problem with aircraft shutting down when approaching airports with WAMA positions saved. Process of elimination shows it must be WAMA. With it not running there is no issue. 100% of the time when running over the last week this has happened. Other clue is that if I’m in a default or any aircraft and then launch WAMA when at an airport with positions saved, the mixture gets pulled immediately. I have just reinstalled and gone to P3D v4.4 to stop the issue; not realising what it was. Same happened in 4.1 but more occasionally.

Any suggestions gratefully recieved. Thanks

this is caused by certain aircraft that are parked in your vicinity. There are some developers (Carenado) who are setting the mixture simulator variable to 0 under certain conditions, using an animation tag in the 3D model. Probably for cold&dark or maybe even copy protection. Setting these variables in the .mdl file is not object specific, it always sets them for the users own aircraft – that is why your engine cuts out. 

I have made provisions in the new version 1.14 of WAMA to get the mixture back up when this happens. This version is currently being tested. If you send me proof of purchase by email (order number and shop) then I can make that version available for testing. The address is on the last page of the user manual.

Best regards
