Won’t Launch from Carrier (with salute)

If I start on the catapult or hot start the mission I can get launched once. After the trap I taxi back to the catapult, kneel and hook to shuttle, wings and flaps, power up, wipe, salute...nothing. I haven’t been able to do a second cat shot at all the last couple days.

Is there something I’m missing? Known bug?

Ive encountered this too starting a mission. The advice was to power off/down. And hit U to reconnect. I havent had a chance to try it.

Is the launch bar light illuminated on the left windshield advisory panel?

Just checked and no, I'm not getting the light at all. I do get a green "Launch Bar" light in the right knee caution panel, but that light actually extinguishes as I run up throttles, illuminates again when they're at idle.

I disconnected/reconnected to the shuttle probably 10+ times and was never able to launch.

I don't know what you mean by 'power off/down'. Shut down and restart the entire jet while on the cat?

Im having issues today with no pitch input recognized by f14...

Cool. Sounds like a completely unrelated problem to the thread you're posting in.

I'm seeing the salute, just never getting launched. I mapped salute to the up arrow key anyway. (Wasn't working before I remapped it, btw, so that's not the problem.)

I saluted the **** out of the ocean in my test. I bowed I scraped, and I saluted the sea god for 2 minutes straight so he would bless my cat shot. But he did not.

 

Hot start on Stennis for training in the ME, PG map.

I had this while someone was on the other cat. I kept saluting and then a few moments after the other aircraft launched mine was launched unexpectedly.

Check your airbrake. That prevents it too.

Checked. Not the issue.

 

The only time I can consistently get launched is at the beginning of the Carrier Takeoff tutorial. If I trap and attempt to launch again during the tutorial, no dice. If I create my own carrier mission, no launchy.

 

Is it fair to say this is a bug yet?

Try making a new mission. I had this problem, made new mission now no problem.

Same. I actually had that problem in a mission I did last week for carrier training with the Hornet and it didn't launch, only in that mission.

 

I recycled that mission to try the Tomcat the day it was released and had the same problem, then I remembered the Hornet acted like that too.

Deleted the mission and did it again from start and problem gone.

Seems more like a DCS/Stennis bug than Tomcat's.

I'm having the same issue. I built a carrier trap mission in the Persian Gulf. After I land, I notice that the F-14 is sliding slightly on the carrier deck. When I attach to the catapult there is a lot of shaking back and forth in the cockpit, like the plane is unstable on the deck, the shaking is not noticeable in external view. I've got a feeling this may be related to why the cat won't shoot. I can see my pilot salute from external view and I've checked the speed brake. I have not tried to shut down and restart the plane though.

same here.

 

I landed on the deck, and tried to take off again. full mil,salute (saw the salute) and no response from plane. I said screw it, and pressed u and I rolled off into the ocean lmao

 

Did jester have some words with you for that? And yes i did that too...

Same problem.

New mission Stennis in the Gulf with ME and the cat won´t launch and nothing helps. Creating this mission a second time it now works. Must be a bug in ME, If I compare the missions I have no idea, what could cause that bug! I can restart and restart......the bugged mission will never let the cat fly.
