When changing N2 rated RPM ENG 1 fails and refuses to start.

Hi,

Whenever I changed the N2 RPM to the correct RPM rating the engine refuses to work after the change is saved. The other engine makes the correct rated thrust. The strange part is when I change the N2 RPM back to the old value the engine also then refuses to start / work at all. Only way to solve this is to effectively start again. As rebuilding the project won't even clear the issue. Thanks.

Steps to reproduce are as follows

• Take the current project that I have with the given engine specs posted below

• Change the N2 RPM to the correct value of 11050.

• Save and resync.

• ENG1 will now not spool up / start

• If I then change the N2 RPM back to the original value and save and resync issue will persist even after cleaning and rebuilding the project and closing the sim.

• Only way to get back ENG 1 is to roll back to an older backed up version and not touch the N2 RPM.

The below images shows first settings that work and 2nd the settings that cause an issue.

Not working on SU6 and actually makes editing the project not possible. But fully working on SU5 with expected behavior.

Thanks again.

Hello.

I was able to reproduce the issue with one of our aircraft and it's being investigated.
Thanks for reporting it.
