Plane won't take off
Posted 24 April 2007 - 09:21 AM
In the second mission for the movie set your meant to fly the seaplane round to distribute the flyers. I can't get the plane to take off. It just seems to wade through the water. Is there a button I'm meant to be holding down other than forward and turning? I haven't played vice city for several months so have forgotten the ins and outs of this particular mission I'm playing on my PC.

If you have a laptop -> make sure you are pressing down on the correct key properly. If you have a desktop -> while holding onto the [UP] arrow key, hold down onto the  key as well on the numpad simultaneously (some keyboards don't allow you to press down on multiple keys at once). Note: The plane won't take off right away, you need to keep tapping on the  key while in the water for long periods. Take 2 Support has info on flying the plane. It's in the FAQ link.
By the way, this is assuming you have a keyboard and nothin' else like a joystick/gamepad. I heard pressing the [ESC] to get into the main menu and pressing it again, might not allow the keyboard to respond to your commands if you don't try repressing the correct key again.

Frame limiters exist to help those with higher-end machines - I'd only ever turn off the limiter on a low-end machine.
