Problem with Pushback

Recommended Posts

I use Fs2Crew 1.3 and I have installed Servicepack 1C for NGX

 

I have a little and annoying problem when using the Fs2Crew Pushback.

 

When I use AES pushback everything works correctly, but AES does not work in every airport in FSX, so I would like to use the Fs2Crew Pushback in those airports.

 

I use the commands:

Cockpit to ground

We're ready for pushback and engine start

Brakes released

Start sequence is 2 then 1

Start engine 2

Start engine 1

 

Every time I have to say STOP Pushback, and then it stops for a second or two.

 

Then I say:

Brakes set

You're cleared to disconnect and go to hand signals

 

But then it automatically continues the pushback until I press Shift-P.

 

Does anyone experience the same as I do?

Why are you saying "Stop Pushback".

 

It should stop by itself.

 

"Stop Pushback" is just for situations, where, for whatever reason, the pushback truck never stops.

How are you triggering that?

 

What numbers are you using for pushback angle and distance?

I have tried several different numbers for distance like 30, 90, 240 and the angle is 90 tail left. It does not matter what the distance is. It automatically continues pushing back as described in the first post.

Always have to use shift -p after a stop pushback command and after the ground announce Pushback complete.

Are you using any other programs that might interfere with the FSX pushback or sent a shift p keypress?

I had the same issue for the first time today as well. I used the start left engine at the gate and the right after pushback for the first time when it happened.

Not that I'm aware of. I use vRoute, TopCat 2.70, VoxATC 6.06, FSCommander 9.1.1, Active Sky Evolution.

And I always start engine number 2 (right) when told it's ok to start engine just after pushback is started, and then engine number one (left). Exactly like when using AES.

I have the same problem when selecting an angle it never stops, and even if I say stop push-back, it will only stop for a short while and then continiue again. If I'am selecting push-back straight back everything works fine and it stops at selected distance.

I confirm- when call " Stop pushback" in any reasons, the plane is braking for a moment and... continue to move independently Parking Brake set or not.Until Shift-P will be pressed.

Its strange for me .(

But I have no problems to full stop the plane in normal condition in 2-10-20 meters and tail left 90 degree turns.

I have FSInn pushback functional only. No AES and GSX ( GSX is planning)

 

There are many small issues in program .. I am still dreaming for v1.4 and ready to help in testing,Bryan! ) You have my e- mail.

I haven't, but as it stands there's not much I can say.

 

I can't reproduce it and it seems to be isolated to a few users out of a very large user base.

 

I need something I can consistently reproduce on my machine, or at least have large numbers of people say the exact same thing.

 

Best,

OK guys.

 

If we're the only ones that have this problem, what do we have in common that others don't?

 

Could it be: FS Global 2010, UTX, GEX, REX?

I've experienced this problem, too, but as a new user (in early stages of learning) I still haven't tried different variations - just left the pushback settings at their default values. I don't have either GSX or AES installed. I'll experiment with different scenarios to see what I can reproduce. For information, other addons running include UTX, REX, EZDoc, TrackIR, UK2000 airport scenery.

Hi peter,

 

Did you try it with default scenery? Are you Switching windows during pushback? another thing... Can you see the pushback tug during pushback? does it stop moving?

Hi Damien.

 

Yes it is always with default FSX scenery and default FSX airports because it is only in airports without AES I have tried.

 

Just before pushback I switch to 3D view because I am starting the engines during pushback.

 

I have not checked if I can see the tug during pushback as I am starting the engines, but the tug is there at the beginning for sure.

 

I will try to check next time I am doing a pushback via Fs2Crew. Thank you for your suggestions Damien.

As a test, try doing a pushback but stay in the 2D cockpit. Don't cycle any views.

 

It shouldn't make any difference, but you never know.

I'll try that the next time Bryan and then start my engines after pushback.

I've had some pushback issues too.

 

one exemple : pushback set to approx 100ft, straight, angle 0 (happened twice with almsot similar settings). Once push is complete I get the "push is complete set park brakes please" message from ground, set the parking brake, but then push starts again. I stop the push by calling "stop pushback", the push does stop and I do get the message from ground again but push starts again... and that will go on until I complete the before taxi checklist and start taxiing.

 

Same thing happened once when after realizing I did not set my pushback configuration correctly I called "stop pushback".

 

Anyone else ?

 

edit : ok i just saw the thread two steps down :Party:

 

 

 

repost from the other thread.

 

I did not think of shift+P to stop the pushback, I kept calling "stop pushback" until I was finished with the taxi checklist and started taxi. :Whew: Will do next time.

 

I'll report here when I get the issue again.

Hi guys

 

I'm afraid Bryan can add one more customer with this issue.

 

Did my first flight with FS2Crew about a week ago. During the pushback I realised I needed to stop it because I was in danger of being pushed into a fence. Using the same commands, apart from the "You're cleared to disconnect and go to hand signals" command, as the OP I got the same result, we stopped, but after setting the parking brake the push back continued.

 

I think that the ground crew said something after I said "Parking brake set", but I couldn't hear what he was saying because ATC was talking to other traffic at the same time.

 

I was flying the 737-600 out of the SWE2011 scenery for ESMS.

AES is installed, but not activated in the CFG-panel since the airport isn't supported.

Push back was set for 90 degrees left, and a distance of 30 meters if I remember correctly.

 

Can't think of any other programs that would interfere either. The only thing running was REX weahter engine and Radar Contact.

 

Cheers

I'm changing some stuff up in V1.4

 

Hopefully it'll help, especially those those who reported that the pushback never stopped.

Peter,

 

Please check your PM's.

 

I'm going to send you a beta of V1.4.

 

Hopefully it'll fix your pushback issue.

 

Cheers,

Hi Damien.

 

You asked if I can see the pushback tug during pushback. No I can not see it. But I have now tried Bryans 1.4 Beta version and so far it seem to be working fine. However I have not tried it with all the other programs I have running in the background like Active Sky Evolution, FS Commander 9.2, Topcat 2.70, VoxATC 6.06 and vRoute Basic. I will try that later today.
