Could not start flight, said plane was not on ground 5KE
« on: November 08, 2018, 12:36:19 PM »
This morning I loaded up the Barnstorming flight MFC0005. I loaded in the Beaver Amphib at 5KE which is a water landing. I taxied out to the water area and shut down the engine. Opened Cigar Box and all looked fine. Clicked Start Flight and get a message that "Airplane is not on the ground" I shut everything down and ran the FTX Central 3 opened settings and ran Configure FTX Global Vector thinking the elevation was off. Fired up P3Dv4 and set up the flight again. Airplane not on the ground. I went ahead and flew the flight just for fun and no credit.

Can anyone offer help? Everything in Cigar Box looks fine and the flight downloaded just fine.

Maybe losd up same flight.. and taxi to other end of the runway and try cigar box again.. sounds like a sim glitch.. just make sure that tiu are running the sim as well at cigar box as administrator.

Not home today to check stuff or help more  but give that a try Buddy.

Ok buddy..  firstly try another flight. Ie: A single flight starting at a different location and see if cigar boz works.. run cigar box as administrator. If no go it's the box. But try it also this way: temporarily turn off anti virus and re test that flight.  If a no go uninstall the cigar box and reinstall it and set again to run as administrator. Will try you tomorrow if you might be around.
