PMDG auto brakes does not work on landing


Recommended Posts

hi pete i have all my axes set via FSUIPC, when i land with the 747 or 737 the auto brakes does not work??? (although it will disarm once i use the brakes pedals) if i delete the left & right brake axis the autobrakes works fine once landed (i can see the message brakes on the left corner of the screeen)

i have the CH pedals, joystick disabled and the sliders are set max sensitivity & min null zone

the same settings work fine with other A/C.

this is a copy of my FSUIPC.INI

ErI didn't think the BRAKES message came on with auto-brakes, only manual braking.

Are you using the latest interim version of FSUIPC? Please try that if not.

Aileron=-16200,-1000,1000,16200/8

Elevator=-16200,-1000,1000,16200/8

Rudder=-16200,-1000,1000,16200/8

Spoilers=-16200,16200/24

Flaps=-16200,16200/24

LeftBrake=-16380,16380/24

RightBrake=-16380,16380/24

All those calibrations seem far too "precise" or "reguar" to be true calibrations. Are you sure you are leaving a small dead zone at either extreme? Even the centre zones for the main controls seem impossibly contrived for manual calibration!

Without any "parking" place for the brakes when off it is likely that they are appearing to be on a little, on occasion.

hi Pete thanks for the reply

i downloaded FSUIPC 3.65, still having the same probleme with PMDG

the auto brakes does not work. the same setting are working nicely with level-D and other A/C.

for the brakes message it works with auto brakes.

regarding the calibration what is the best way to do it?

i tryed this:

Perform calibration in the Sim, following the simple step-by-step instructions in the FSUIPC user documentation. Do NOT do it by editing the INI file! The INI file only keeps a record so that your calibrations are restored next time you reload FS, it is not meant to be the place to "calibrate". It cannot be done there.

The values shown in your INI are still so "precise" as to indicate you really have not gone through any of the process documewnted on any axis. Why are you wanting to even consider using FSUIPC for this unless you actually make use of the calibration facilities? I don't understand.

Regards,

Pete
