"Hold Short" starting positions

Postby GhostRider » Thu Sep 22, 2016 3:11 pm

I am having trouble on some aircraft, e.g. 777 and 737-800, not "turning" enough to line up with the runway from the hold short starting positions. Any advice?

I guess I am the only one with this problem. So be it.

How about flying a route from KBOS to KJFK using autopoilot and route manager (787) and FG crashes as you descend to KJFK, or how about 777 taking over 5 minutes to load Windows 10 Home Edition.

Get a better computer, obviously.

Just kidding.

I don't fly big metal, so I can't comment on the turning radius. But the crashing.... oh boy. Drives me nuts. It's just kinda a fact of life that FG will crash randomly.

Were you on multiplayer when you crashed? A Tu-154b spawning in crashes me every.single.time. I did find a fix but it's way less than ideal. Other planes that'll crash your FG on multiplayer include, but are not limited to, the F-14, F-15, and the 707.

You can check the logs and see if anything useful turns up.

i can't say that i've seen details given to be able to reproduce this...

i'm on linux but i'm willing to try to reproduce this if you can provide more information...

where did you get the craft from?
can you provide a route or fgtape file?

i have more than that so should be able to reproduce easily if it isn't an OS specific problem... plus i build my own...

try using left or right toe brake and some power. Found it necessary maneuvering the f14 on the carrier.

You need to use tiller steering.

On the 737-800 from Soitanen you can use key q for left, e for right and w for center.
