Steering Tiller disconnected from Rudder

have asked pmdg support about the above & hoping to hear whatever soon irrespective of the following.

in the meantime, pete dowson has an "Interim release 5.132c includes a new parameter alongside MaxSteerSpeed: "RudderBlendLowest". This gives a ground speed below which the rudder input is used fully with no tiller use. The parameter defaults to 1 knot, so the aircraft needs to be stationary (or very close to stationary)."

works well in the ngx with "fsuipc direct to tiller/rudder" axis along with the above and MSS.

Hi John, could you explain more detailed how do set this in FSUIPC?, I already have the latest version 5.132c, but can't figure aout how toset what you explai, thanks a lot inadvance!

Oh I think I got it, is the same configuration (steering tiller send direct FSUIPC calibration) but now the rudder won't steer the tiller in slow taxi...

is it?

Thanks

& rudder send direct to fsuipc calibration plus with MaxSpeedSteer=XX  and RudderBlendLowest=X (defaults are 60 & 1 respectively) in [Joystick Calibration] of your *ini.

in this configuration, yes pedal nosewheel steer is about max. of 7o but tiller nosewheel steer is 78o

This new RBL feature is essentially to correct in the ngx & probably other pmdg etc. aircraft the animations seen on the LDu Sys page. Unfortunately, if you were in the tower, you would see the rudder move during tiller nws.

using P3D4's steering/rudder set axis (via send to FS) is more correct as regard animations but pedal nws is not limited as in the real.

thanks a lot for your help and info John!

I prefer reality over looks, so I've chosen the rudder send direct to fsuipc, don't mind animation of the rudder in outside views.

Great week

pete dowson (fsuipc) deserves the thanks .... I'm just a  messenger so to speak.

i was also hoping to have some news from support on a way to improve the tiller interface but it seems they are too busy falling over themselves to remember what they wrote in the SDK a few years after they were born ..... disappointing to say the least.

John,

Support for SDK is not normally provided, as it is clearly stated in the SDK documentation

"Please understand that PMDG, PMDG Simulations and affiliates are unable to provide coding assistance, advice or support for developers seeking to use this SDK.
This SDK is provided on an “as-is” basis and is not subject to support or revision by PMDG Simulations, LLC."

I replied to your ticket, and told you that I will ask the dev team, which are currently busy with the 747-8, despite the fact that we do not normally provide support for that.  You above statement is way out of line.

if so, my apologies.

I don't know that I am looking for support per se, just a clarification / further definition of what it is for as I can't see any animations / consequences using its ID with the range of "mouse actions / key presses" possible.

I have used over SDK 100 control events (all very well titled & within my intuitive range) to assign buttons / keys with fsuipc, but this one has me stumped.

looking forward to further advice.
