Is there offset for something like "toe_brakes_scale"?

I'm working on " wet runway" effect which simply reduce the braking force accordingly.

The obvious way is use the 3416/3418(toe axis input), disconnect by 341A and then decrease it according the rain/snow(04CC 04CB) then send it to 0BC4/0BC6

Now ,this way do works great with pedal and even some add-on aircarft's auto-brake.  but it doesn't work with the Default and many add-on's auto-brake which directly send it's data to BC4/BC6.

If read BC4/BC6, half it then send back, this data will goes to 0 quickly.

 

However, I find that the "toe_brakes_scale = " line in aircarft.cfg under [brakes] works ideally, but I can't change it in real-time, I don't know where it is in the RAM,  is there a offset for it in FSUIPC?

 

Or, if there are other ways to deal with the auto-brakes?

 Thanks for the advice, but I'm still working on FS9, so that friction function way doesn't work for me...

 

I think other programs in those days (FS9? So long ago! ;-) ) wrote to the acceleration offsets instead, to brake aircraft at different rates. There was one famous program (which I don't even remember now) which used those values for catapult launches and tailhook braking.

If I can read the acceleration, modify it, then send it back without get it divergented, I'll do this trick with BC4/BC6....

Or I might need to rewrote the whole aero and friction drag to get a decent braking behavior.... :oops:

 

I'm now trying to let the default Autobrake(2F80) disconnect with 0BC4/6 and rewrorte one using 3416/8 input.... but it seems to be another deadend in FS9....without something like auto_brakes = x in Aircraft.cfg...
