[Flightgear-devel] Initial conditions at reset

2006-12-05 Thread Thomas Biwer
I just want to gently push this back to top, since I figured out more strange behaviours which I really dont know the cause of... First, as I didnt notice before, the plane is hovering a few feet above the runway at start as soon as I specify an initial velocity. If I specify the initial

Thank you for your help Jon, Is there a way to fix this problem with the altitude on the runway? And yes, I am using JSBSim planes. Yes I did take a look in JSBSim.cxx - but without success. I tried to set the initial conditions within the FGJSBSim()-function as well as within the init(9

Well, by digging through the code I found what is responsible for the fading. It's in src/Main/renderer.cxx from line 752 on. Just commenting out these lines killed the fading-in-behaviour. For some reason, the --enable-freeze option doesnt seem to work, which is why I simply press p while

Fred, Richard, Could you start with --enable-freeze (I think it is, it might be --enable-pause) and then unpause the sim when the screen is ready for you? Richard --enable-pause is unknown and the --enable-freeze option doesnt do anything over here, FG just starts as usual, including fading

Anders, i think the problem within that is that pausing FlightGear pauses the fdm as well as loading the scenery - so the problem will be the same. what I am looking for is a function to pause the FDM, while the scenery is continuing loading. In that way, I could start the FDM as soon as the
