P-39 Bendix RDF Not Working.

Recommended Posts

The Bendix BN 26 Homing device in the P-39 doesn't seem to be working, at least in Multiplayer.

Requiring landing low on fuel at another Allied airdrome.

Anyone with similar problems?

Also, landing and refueling at a friendly base should not be listed as a Lost Airplane.

It happened in R/L to a Spitfire Photo-Recon pilot pal of mine.

Strong head wind a few days after D-Day invasion required an unscheduled landing.

Seems easy for Devs to fix.

I think (and may be wrong here) that it has to do with mission building.

If the mission builder didn't place or activate the beacon, the bendix won't work either.
I have this problem on Wings Of Liberty with German planes that have the Lorenz navigation system too.

I don't have the problem on Combat Box, there it works.

 

Have a nice day.

No beacon, no RDF.

Of course.

Thanks Shark

wait - actually even server admins that specifically tried to get the P-39 Bendix to work (because they use NonDirectionalBeacons on all their airfields for all plane types and sides) never got it to work for the AirCobra.
Since the P-39 Bendix is more a less a copy&paste keylog of code with some modifications it is very likely that there is some sort of coincidental typo that has the P-39's Bendix bugged.
But - since unfortunately there is no formalized bug reporting system for creating an actual ticket and even creating a forum post according to the template a dev posted "at some time" "somewhere" (maybe not even in the bug reporting session or in some of the more extensive threads) is subject to opinionating of interested IL2 players acting on imperfect information (by defaultr) any bug that is not "on the nose" or only gets noticed by "a minority" can linger for years (as is the case here).

What we do know is - it does not work, it does not work via mission builder on a clientside basis and it does not work when a multiplayer server tries to get it to work.
The rest is not up to us, since we cannot do anything but try to keep reporting it.

It is working. You need to change the radio frequency.
