Overheating at the begining of a mission!
Hi mates!

sry, but i read already that there is a bug in the begining of a mission. The motor stops running (at the very begining) the temps are on the top and directly damage the coolingsys. I tried to find it in the forums, but didn`t manage to find it and its solution, hopefully)Is there something we can avoid this?
Thx and greets from the heart of nowhere!

I assume you are using CEM.

Make sure you have your water and oil radiators open.

Don't over rev your engine(s).

I believe he is referring to the engine overheat on spawn bug.
Yes, it Sucks.

What Doc said.

For the RAF fighters - if you open your fuel cock immediately upon spawning in you'll prevent the engine from stopping. Next quickly open your water (glycol) radiator to 100% and you can start taxiing immediately -- you're good to go with no further warm up required.

Which aircraft Grabovski?

Rince 05-22-2012 01:24 AM

it was the 109....yes, i`m ok with all the cem stuff but i mean the spawn bug i never recognised like this before. I open directly the radiator but its`s overheating.....perhaps somebody got a hint...or i`ll try later..btw, it was in the desastersoft campaign and didn`t tried it on the others! I check it out and if i find something i let ya know!
Thanks for the soon replies. Do we have the same bug online? (i think-no, never realised...)


p.s. see you soon online again...diablo is down...(again) ;-)

I have, on occasion, run into the same bug. On pressing I engine temps go off the charts within 2 seconds and the plane begins to sustain damage. The engine also does not start properly, spooling up, sputtering and then stopping.

Yes its a bug now with the last alpha 1.06.

The best way:
  1. Open Full coolant radiator qiuckly
  2. Open Full oil Radiator qiuckly
  3. Start engine as soon as You can
  4. Lower rpm

The trick to get around this I find is to start your engine as fast as you can.. i find doing this before messing with radiators is better, i know it sounds wrong but.. opening radiators before your engine starts does not seem to cool the engine.
  1. spawn
  2. open fuel cock
  3. start engine
  4. minimal revs
  5. open radiators
All as fast as you can. Works for me.

Hello Rince,I think the thread you are refering to was mine and I put it in the 'BETA PATCH v1.06.17582 + Mini FIX--Bug thread',but I can see the guys have already given you top advice so now you have your answers hopefully.;)
