I am having trouble starting the B747 engines sequentially, i.e., start engine 1, then engine 4, then engine 3 and then engine 2. If I press Ctrl-E, it starts them in the order of 1,2,3,4 - but that's not what I want. I want it in sequence of 1,4,3,2.
FS says if you want to control one engine, you must first press E and then the engine number. I press E-1, to take control of engine 1. Now I want to start engine 1 (and ONLY engine 1). I hit Ctrl-E. All of my engines start, in the order 1,2,3,4. It's as if I never took control of engine 1 by pressing E-1 before hitting the start command (Ctrl-E).
Very frustrating. Any suggestions?
