DB-7 Engines will not start.

When I spawn into either the game world, the training server, or offline with the DB-7, the propellers are already spinning, and the engines will not start.

There is no issue with any other aircraft.

I tried deleting the db7.cfml file but this did not  resolve the problem. 

Has anyone else experienced this?

Man that is weird... That plane was not touched since the damage audit. 

I'll make a ticket.

I just reproduced this too. Only difference I noticed is that on the training server when i spawn in the engines are off for me and will not start. If I start offline mode and spawn in the engines are spinning with no noise and will not start.

Edit: unable to test live server at the moment - no TOE for french equip

Just loaded it onto my work laptop, in offline mode, the first time I spawned the DB-7 there was no spinning of the propellers and no starting of the engines.

I then spawned the A-20C and the Boston, and both worked.

When I respawned a DB-7, the engines were spinning and the engines would not start.

Testing offline.

Cannot start the DB-7 engines.

When I de-spawn a single engine plane while the propeller is still spinning (engine on or off) and then spawn the DB-7, I see the port propeller spinning. If I spawn back into a plane (single or multi engine) and de-spawn with the propeller not spinning, and then spawn the DB-7 I see the port propeller has stopped spinning.

If I de-spawn a multi engine plane while the propellers are spinning (engines on or off) and then spawn in the DB-7, I see both propellers spinning. If I spawn back into a single engine plane and de-spawn with the propeller not spinning, and then spawn the DB-7 I see only the starboard propeller spinning.

If I de-spawn a multi engine plane while the propellers are spinning (engine on or off) and then spawn in the DB-7, I see both propellers spinning. If I spawn back into a multi engine plane and de-spawn with the propellers not spinning, and then spawn the DB-7 both propellers have stopped spinning.

Gah! While finishing up the new A20C Havoc for release, I noticed the DB7 had the wrong Pratt&Whitney R-1830 model number in the data files and updated it locally to commit the change to the project for the DB7 at a later date (BTW, this change was only in a name reference line and not anything to do with engine performance, well, other than breaking the darn thing altogether). Apparently in my rush to finish the A20C, that file accidentally got committed along with the A20C files without the appropriate links being updated across the other necessary DB7 FM files and I broke it. Since this was in the A20C work commit, and was not documented (because that file was not intended to be committed) there was no note of the change for QA to know to check it, and it got past us.

Not sure how I missed committing that file early, but this one is 100% on me... I'm fixing it now so that it can go in the next hotfix asap.

My sincerest apologies

(Update 11:39 CST: The files have been fixed and are ready for inclusion in the next hotfix that we will get out to you ASAP)
