let's connect this evening and I'll watch externally to see if I can help spot the problem.

believe me! I dropped at 500 feet @150 mph, and it blew me up every time! at 6 seconds, it goes off after 6 but I am long gone and works great... it seems the P-40E is the one that I have to set for along time, not having this problem with other planes.. by the way, I took the smoke mod out... and then changed it to 6 second bomb delay... the smoke mod should not make any difference, plus the smoke was in the mods folder, not jsgme...

in any case, I am leaving it as is... it's working!

This may sound stupid, but after you set your bomb delay to 4 seconds, and hit apply .........  Do you go back into the arming screen to double check what you set?

If so, do you AGAIN RETYPE back in the 4 second bomb delay, and hit apply again. Or do you just visually confirm what you put in that 1st time and then just hit the apply button?

Rel told me once before, that whenever you go back into the arming screen ....... for whatever purpose (change fuel, change gun convergence, change load out) you need to manually retype in the desired bomb delay. Each and every time. Once I started to do that, all my bomb delay problems went away.

Just a thought.
The three most common expressions (or famous last words) in aviation are: "Why is it doing that?" "Where are we?" and "Oh Shit!"

I will go with 5 or 6 seconds if it takes it and keeps it.

I agree with Rel and GW's  observation.
Every time you get into that screen the bomb delay field wants attention, else if the field that holds that value does not see a value change event then when you exit the screen that field will automatically default to guess what, zero seconds.

To avoid this problem never enter that screen without giving that woman some attention, as in
each and every time. Hmm sound familiar? Think of it like kissing your wife before going off to work (or war.)
