Thread: FSX HMS Bounty Won't Move

  1. #1

    Default FSX HMS Bounty Won't Move

    Hello,

    I know this is an old subject, but a search for “FSX HMS Bounty won’t move” brought me to a very old thread. I have tried everything in the thread including reinstalling FSX. No success. The Bounty worked just fine in FSX-SE, but I can no longer use Steam. I installed FSX Deluxe from disk and have upgraded to SP2, installed FSUIPC 4.977, but the Bounty no longer moves even with an 18kt wind from my back.

    Please help.

    Did you weigh anchor? I had FSX Standard Edition with SP2 and Bounty sailed just fine.

    Yes. I have sailed the Bounty for hundreds(thousands?) of hours over the years. I know what I am doing. Still, for the sake of clarity...
    • FSX Deluxe Edition (disk) upgraded to SP2
    • FSUIPC 4.977 (latest) installed
    • Start FSX and choose HMS Bounty, slew to water
    • Weigh anchor
    • Set sails to "Auto" with "Green Light"
    • Slew rotation to have 18kt wind coming from aft.


    Any ideas? I could have missed something, so feel free to ask any questions or make suggestions.

    Have you tried setting sails manually? Never hurts to set off at least 2 cannon salutes! Post a screenshot of what you see when the ship should be moving!

    Hello,

    Can I please get some help with this? I have searched for days and followed every thread I could find without success. I am at a complete loss after trying everything I can find (see above).
    FYI - I can no longer fly. The HMS Bounty is the only vehicle I can enjoy in FSX.

    Take care,
    Calvin

    Calvin, I posted a reply in the other thread.

    Please ensure your Realism settings are set to "Hard". (Will not work on "Easy" realism in FSX.)

    Also, check this thread.

    This issue has been resolved. The problem lay in the old, saved installer zip files. They must have been corrupted. I downloaded new fresh files (install and update files) and everything works!

    Thanks to everyone for the help and again, to Milton, Rob, etc. for this wonderful tall ship. As a personal note, I can no longer fly, drive, nor race. The HMS Bounty is the only FSX sim enjoyment I can successfully use.
