Hi Pete, hi all,
just registered within the forum because I have a strange problem with the DynamicFriction.lua and hope to get some help here.
First of all, I am running FSX on a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit System. Latest FSUIPC version (4.929) is installed and registered. Mostly I fly Aerosoft's Airbus X Extended, but the problem is the same with all other aircrafts, even the default ones, which I just loaded the first time ever to test this out ;-)
I downloaded the LUA Package, copied the DynamicFriction.lua into the Main FSX/Modules folder and wrote this:
into the fsuipc.ini.
Anyway, the decreased friction is noticeable when I start taxiing after completing pushback and startup. But after hitting the brakes for lets say only one second during taxiing, the friction is reset to default and I have to use much more thrust to keep the aircraft rolling than before hitting the brakes.
What I also discovered is that when I now set the parking brake for a short moment and release it again, the friction is again decreased and I can continue taxi with significant lower thrust - until I need to hit the brakes the next time. Then it's the same as described before: friction reset to default, after setting the parking brake friction decreased, and so on...
First of all I thought of a miscalibration of my CH Pedals, which I use for braking - but they are properly calibrated (FSX default, not with FSUIPC), and the red "braking" message on the left bottom of the screen is not showing up as long as I dont touch them... also FSUIPC changed the fsuipc.ini automatically to...
...which I think should be correct.
So, any ideas to get the friction patch working without setting the parking brake 20 times on the way from the gate to the runway?
