F-15 controls not working  

Postby MIG29pilot » Wed Jun 24, 2020 9:37 pm

Hi!
I tried to fly the F-15 today (both the C and the D). The controls do not respond. I can see the stick and the pedals moving in the cockpit, but the elevators, ailerons, and rudders do not move.

This sounds like a recurrence of the JSBSIM problems causing failures in the hydraulics that have been fixed in newer versions of flightgear - what version of flightgear do you have? I presume you downloaded this f-15 from the launcher?

Please specify FG Version and F-15 version.

AFAIK I am running 2020.1.2, but the launcher lists itself as 2018.3.5. The F-15C and D models from the launcher are what I am using.

in the sim, hit F10 to bring up the menu, then select help and about and see what it says in there... there's no way to cross them so the launcher is one version and the sim is another...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Just tested 2020.1.2, Aircraft Version 1.11 (November 2019) under Windows and it's working fine.

Please ensure that you only have one version of the model installed; and that you do not mix between installing the F-15 with the FG 2018.3.5 and FG - 2020.x as the models aren't compatible across FG versions.

isn't there a FG version thing in the craft that should signal to FG that the craft will work or not with the current version of the craft?
FG or the launcher should pop up a box stating that the craft won't work and the user should visit the craft tab to install the proper one for the FG version, shouldn't it?
either that, or the craft directory should be versioned on the local drive so those with multiple FGs installed can use the proper craft from their drive?

Yes but it is the minimum version; not the maximum version. The problem is that the F-15 that works with 2018.3.x doesn't work with 2020.x - it has since been fixed and backported to 2018.3.x but maybe the hangar for 2018.3.x needs a refresh.
