Brake pedals disabling Park brake

Recommended Posts

Hello Pete

 

I'm having a problem with my brake pedals disabling my park brake when I depress the pedals. I'm using saitek combat rudder pedals, Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog control set and FSUIPC vers 4.934. It has been working all ok then this problem just started. I'm not using any default Fsx controls everything is disabled inside fsx, all my key mapping are done through Fsuipc and its a great software it has helped me a lot.

 

The Fsuipc screenshot below is what I have as setting for my park brake which is working ok toggle on and off the park brake. The only issue comes when I have my park brake set and if I press the pedals it disengage the park brake which I'm failing to figure out why.

 

I have cleared all the current park brake and brake pedals key map setting in fsuipc and start afresh assigning button presses axis configuration and calibration but that still that  hasn't cleared the problem.

 

From the axis configuration screenshot you might be wondering I have my Left and Right brake pedals set as one pedal reason because I had difficulty when I apply brakes the plane used to veer either left or right regardless applying the same amount of pressure on the pedals, so to resolve this issue what i did was set both pedals as one. If I press one pedal or both i remain in straight line hope that's clear what I'm trying to explain. I have been running Fsx since and it has been ok until yesterday this problem in question started.

 

Hope you can help me resolve this issue,thank you.

 

Regards

 

Lloyd

Applying brakes via the brake pedals SHOULD release the parking brake. That is intended in FS and it is what happens in real aircraft. The parking brake is usually basically a latch or lever keeping the toe brakes on and when pressure on it is released it releases, naturally. Really, for more realism, the parking brake wouldn't engage in the first place without first applying and holding toe brake pressure and releasing whilst holding the latch up. I've arranged for that to happen in my own cockpit.

That can only be a result of poor calibration. Calibrate them properly, following the numbered steps in the FSUIPC user guide.

 

BTW FSUIPC version 4.934 is no longer supported. Current version is 4.939u and an update to 4.939v is also available..

Hi Lloyd

 

If you assign the parking brake to a toggle switch and select "control to repeat while held" option in FSUIPC it will achieve what you are after.
