Question Regarding Multiple Engine Control In Fs

Sun Nov 19, 2006 1:33 am

Hi, I sometimes have a problem with the throttle after having used the autothrottle. Sometimes it'll only let me control one engine with my joystick, and then I have to manually control the other engine with my mouse.

Is there a way to start controlling both or all the engines again at the same time?

Thanks!

Heya,

If when this happens you hold down:

E + 1 + 2

(If you are using a 2 engine jet, for a 3 engine add + 3 etc.)

You must do it pretty quickly.

Thanks
Mike

Hey! Thank you so much!

That'll save me a lot of hassle.

I often find this doesn't work unless you pause for a few seconds between each press, even then it can take a few goes.

If you have a full copy of FSUIPC you can assign a key combination to "Take control of all engines". I just assign Ctrl+Shift+E and all I have to do is hit that to take over all engines!

Cheers
Noel

Thank you for the advice! Yes I do have a full version of FSUIPC, so I will see if I can figure it out

The FSUIPC route is much quicker; I simply assigned "d" for all engines (I didn't use whatever assignment FS had originally given for "d"). Very simple!
