Autopilot Help

Post by VitalConflict » Sat May 27, 2017 8:15 pm

Whenever I try to use autopilot, it fires my weapons, and seeing as I am new and practically depend on this, I would like some help

Welcome to YSFHQ! For your first post, you sure have a unique question. I have never heard of this happening. :lol:

In order to help troubleshoot what is happening, could you provide a few pieces of information? The more you give, the better insight people may have into your issue.

(1) What version of YSFlight are you using?
This information is typically found via the download link and named like 20170314 or 20150416 i.e. YYYYMMDD format.

(2) Graphics Version of YSFlight
I see that you use Windows 10. For windows operating systems there are a different rendering options (for example Open GL or CPU). Different rendering options may have different behaviors.

(3) Misc Info
Have you made any changes to the default key assignments?
What aircraft were you flying?
What weapons were loaded and how much of each type were fired?

Can you try going into auto-pilot again and get the same results?

That's actually a very simple issue...

Some aircraft assign weapon release keys to the autopilot keys, best way to avoid it is to click the option instead of pressing the number assigned to the autopilot option.

{ cheatplane(); }

That's one hell of a coding oversight. Whoops! :lol:

Oh Soji.
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!
