I'm having a problem flying a plane in X-Plane 9. A few months ago I tried to Equipment Failures option on the simulator to try to divert to an airport with an engine fire or flaps not working. Then I wanted a flight without any problems so I clicked on Reset all systems to operational, selected a plane and started flying. About 5 minutes after takeoff there is an engine fire and I tried to divert to an airport. Suddenly birds start flying in front of the plane and I thought that was weird because on Rendering options the Draw birds in nice weather option was not on. Then my plane crashed. This has been happening every time I try to fly a plane. I emailed X-Plane support about this but they haven't been helping me. So I thought maybe someone on here knew about this problem. Will I need to get a new CD? Is there something that I forgot to do or did wrong?

I am also an XP9 user and absolutely love this sim.
I'm sure you've checked this already but just in case you haven't, look to make sure that you do not have any timed failures set. A timed failure would explain the engine fire and bird strike once you are already into the flight.
Other than that I guess the other option would be to reinstall the program. As daunting a task as that seems, it may be your only option.
As for getting a new cd/dvd, I strongly doubt that would help your problem in this case.
Hope this helps and I hope you sort out your problem!
