That's because you didn't compile fgfs with SDL (--enable-sdl) but with glut. Glut (at least freeglut) either has a keyboard event bug, or is wrongly configured in fgfs: if the space bar is held down, there's a constant flow of "pressed, released, pressed, released, ..." events. Hence spitfire.startCof(1) turns /controls/engines/engine/starter on, but the immediately following spitfire.startCof(0) turns it off again. Of course, fixing glut or the way fgfs uses it would be the preferred solution. As a workaround, compile with --enable-sdl, or (with glut) set /controls/engines/engine/starter manually. m. _______________________________________________ Flightgear-devel mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://mail.flightgear.org/mailman/listinfo/flightgear-devel 2f585eeea02e2c79d7b1d8c4963bae2d
