Dynamic friction problem in P3D v2.2

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


Having trouble getting the dynamic friction to work in P3D.  I have installed the DynamicFriction.lua, entered "[Auto]

1=Lua DynamicFriction" in the ini file, but the log file brings up an error.
This is a complete stock, and very fresh, installation of Prepar3d so I haven't tweaked or changed anything.
Any ideas?

You are running a version of FSUIPC which was released before P3D 2.2. I am surprised it doesn't cause a crash!


I have been on holiday.so unable to match P3D's release date last week. Version 4.93 of FSUIPC will be released later this week and will work with P3D 2.2. Meanwhile I suggest you remove FSUIPC4.DLL from the Modules folder, or at least be understanding if it causes crashes or other problems.

Oh wow!


So clearly, the problem is the loose nut behind the keyboard!  :razz:


Never paid any mind to the version numbers.  Just installed it and went flying.  To be honest, other than the problem with the dynamic friction, I didn't notice any issues with Prepar3d v2.2 and FSUIPC 4.292.  Wind smoothing and controller calibrations seemed to work without a hitch.


At any rate, I'll standby for the update.


Thanks, Pete!
