I hope someone can help me out here. I can't start the freaking B17's engines! I'm basically stuck in the training and quickstart missions as well. I've followed the directions to the letter (as far as I can tell) but the engines won't freaking start. I get to the point where I hit the start switch, wait 10 seconds, then hit the mesh switch. I hear a sound like the engine is running extremly slow or it's either starting, not sure which. However, if I change views to outside to see if the props are spinning, they aren't and the sound goes away when I return to the cockpit. The book says if the sim is in AI mode, the pilot/copilot will go through the checklists but they aren't as I can't hear them as the book says you can hear them!! Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I'm totally lost here. Thanks!
