F-16 spoilers not working

Postby JackSwyr » Wed May 31, 2017 8:33 pm

I know this is probably minor compared to all the other support questions being blasted at you guys but I when I try to deploy the spoilers in the F-16 I see a little bump up on them and then back down, it's barely perceptible.

The Lightning fighter works fine with its spoilers so I wonder if it's peculiar to the F-16?

Thanks.

I have the same problem with my button assignment even with the slider setting all the way to the right. I noticed that if I hold down the Backslash key for about 2-3 seconds they slowly deploy fully, but then they immediately retract. I wonder if its in the scripting of the spoilers deployment section in the aircraft config file? I'm not sure of how to correct it, but if anyone knows that would be great. Hope someone has an answer.

Yep, noticed this also. If I keep my spoilers key pressed, the spoilers eventually open but the moment I let go, they close.
The key works fine on the other aircrafts, just has problems with the f16

Hi All,

This was identified during testing and will be corrected in an upcoming hotfix.

It is isolated to the F-16.

Regards and thanks for the report,

I changed my choice in the controls menu to use the spoilers start/stop option and it seems to work, try it let me know if it works for you.

By the way, I edited the "spoilers on" value from 0 to 1, in the [Airplane Geometry] section of the aircraft cfg. file.

Are the auto-flaps working with this setting?
