Brakes problem in FS2004 ?

Recommended Posts

When extending my Taxispeed gauge with a automatic Brake function, I run into the following problem.Try the following:1.- Start a flight in FS2004. - Set the parking brakes.- Press a toebrake pedal once.Are the parking brakes released now automatically ??(IMHO they shouldn't)2.- Start a flight in FS2004. DON"T touch the toebrake pedals.- Try the Brakes keyboard command (default key: ".")- The brakes should work now.- Press a toebrake pedal once.- Try the Brakes keyboard command again.On my PC the Brakes command doesn't work anymore, untill I reset the flight.Can someone using FS2004 with toebrakes pedals confirm this behaviour on his PC ??Thanks, RobPS:You can argue that test-2 sound logical, and maybe it was even intended that way.BUT:There is a bug in the FS braking system when differential braking is applied from a gauge (when set from a gauge, they won't release untill you touch the physical pedals again).And Yes, my pedals are well-calibrated !

rcbarend, #1 and #2: That's normal behavior for pedals. Parking brakes are released when you tap the brakes and the pedals will override the default brake command of "." or another assigned button/switch on your yoke/stick.

"pedals will override the default brake command of "." or another assigned button/switch on your yoke/stick"That is true, if the brakes are at a position where FS "sees" that there is a toebrake axis at that time (due to "jitter" or moving the pedals). That's why I said "they are well calibrated" (and therefore in the "released" position where FS can't see that they are there).If the same thing would apply to throttles, you would never be able to use the F1-F2-F3-F4 keys (and therefore no Reverse Thrust via a key/button) if the throttle lever/axis is at idle.Rob

Dognot,Sorry, but I'm not sure you understand my point1. I DO know that axis positions override key/button commands.2. I also DO know that FS only "sees" the position of a axis (and hence overrides a given pressed key/button) if you change the axis value, either intentionally or because the axis "jitters")3. What I DIDN'T know is, that only the Brakes axis in FS2004 behaves differently (at least on my PC): FS2004 seems to disable the Brakes key/button commands for the rest of the flight if it has seen a Brakes axis change only once. Which is different than in FS2002.That's the confirmation I am looking for, since I have learned with FS not to assume anything for a fact, if a only observe it on my PC.Regards, Rob
