Yes shame on me but I am using it very often...the Autostart :-) sometimes it stopped with the Message that the right engine has a speed failure and the Autostart stopped...why? Click image for larger version

That's taking "realism" to a new level!

Are you engines advanced already when you initiate autostart? They should be down at idle.

it also could be a server/mission setting to not allow autostart

If you didn't refuel and arm first it could be empty of fuel as well .....Some servers start with fuel empty.

I have the same issue using Auto Start for the F-18, the only way I can start the right engine, is by taking off (yes with one engine) and manually starting the right.

Also when I get right RPM engine failure the AutoStart completely stops.

If the engine temp is minus at startup the auto start will fail the right engine start. As soon as you see it fail then hit the right start switch immediately and it will continue...Last I observed it was based on a the temperature set in an MP mission......
