Pusback problems


Recommended Posts

Hi there - I hope someone can help ???

I cannot get pushback to work properly - when I use SHIFT + P The aircaft moves backwards but the 1 & 2 keys (on the main keyboard and NUM keyboard) do not cause the A/C to turn right or left and the rudder pedals do not work either.

Has anyone come across this or have any idea what could be wrong ?

Many thanks

David

Rudder pedals don't interfere with pushback in any case. The aircraft is being moved by an imaginary vehicle, and I don't think rudders work in reverse in any case.

The usual reason for the 1 and 2 keypresses not to work is that other controls are occurring between the Shift+P press and the 1 or 2 pressing. If you are using views, or starting engines, during pushback, then the 1 and 2 will be ignored. It's the way FS works. The same will happen with many add-on panels which send controls to FS all the time -- try with a default FS panel and without touching any other keypresses or joystick buttons.

In a user-registered copy of the current FSUIPC version all this is fixed by the control accelerations fix option. You can look out of the side window, and/or start engines, whilst pushback is operating, and still select 1 or 2 for the turn.

You should also be aware that when you press 1 or 2, the aircraft is still pushed directly back for one aircraft length before being turned.

Regards,

Pete
