Boost lost after warp

Postby arfyhun » Sat Feb 27, 2010 12:23 pm

Greetings all,
   I'm slowly going through the missions and A/Cs which have problems that defy my best resolutions.

May I ask assistance on this one?

The mission is called 'Save the Lancasters'.
On take-off I can see +6lbs boost max. After warping (if I wait for the 500-odd miles to meet the Lancs I feel I may die of old age) all I see is -4lbs. I barely stay in the air.
I have replaced the sound file, no change- (all RAF single engine A/Cs have the same one aliased) and there is no similar problem in any other mission I have found yet. Just 'Save the Lancasters'.
It must be coming from the mission...Illogical?!
Can the mission dictate engine boost?
Not being au fait with the inner workings of missions, I have no idea where to go from here.

Any wisdom will be gratefully accepted.

Many thanks in advance.

What are you flying? If you've run out of fuel you're not going to have much boost. For long warp destinations I cut my throttle completely (even cut the engine) before engaging the warp and reengage power when warping is complete.

Crikey H, I never thought of that! I have warped a thousand times and never had the problem before. This is a '300-odd miler' until you arrive at the combat zone but it didn't cross my mind fuel could be a factor as the engine still runs. I do close the throttle before warping...mean I suppose but given the price of squirt here in England.......
In free flight yonks ago I once flew until fuel exhaustion and the motor stopped. Silence was NOT golden! Didn't walk away from that one. I'll reconfigure fuel load and try again.
Glad to know I can open a question when if you think a second about it I had the basic answer in my question.

Many thanks H.

Will report back.
