    Autobrakes disengage with toe brakes

    Hi Colleague Cockpit Builders,

    I'm building the Autobrake knob into the MIP on this moment.

    I do some testing by making landings with the Autobrakes active.

    There's no way i can disarm the breaking with the toe brakes.
    How do i programm that i can disrupt the autobraking like the real autobrake system does?
    1. toe brakes, 2. spoilers to 0, 3. The Autobrakes knob to off.

    Do i need additional software for options 1 and 2 to disengage the autobrake during roll out?

    Thanks in advance

    Is additional software like Aerosoft's TSR-Autobrake necessary?

    You could do it all with a fairly short Lua plug-in to FSUIPC. There aren't many conditions to check. You just need to arm yourself with the FSUIPC Lua library document and the FSUIPC offsets list from the SDK.

    Well, a little bit. But it would mostly be "ipc.read..." to read values, then "if xxx then yyy end" where yyy might an ipc.control or two, or similar, to send control(s) to FS.

    I can answer questions but I'd rather you had a try first than I write it all for you.

    Regards

    Pete

    Re: Autobrakes disengage with toe brakes

    I dont mean to be a thread hijacker, but this seems appropriate to inerject here.

    Can I use LUA to create an offset that FS2Phidgets can read? For example, I have a Low fuel light that is suppose to come on when all the tanks are low, however the current offsets dont allow a total amount of fuel to be read. Can I use LUA to create that offset that will allow a fuel total to be read?

    ie. when tank1 and tank2 are undder 15% then offset o33ef (for example) will be 1 then the light will come on.

    confused yet?
    I'm not replicating anything, because I like to fly everything.

    This is presumably for FS9 or before? There are total fuel offsets for FSX and ESP.

    Yes, you can do that with a little Lua plug-in. Read the levels in the tanks, do your computation, and write to an offset. You should choose an offset available for users to use as they wish -- in the 66C0 to 66FF range.

    ie. when tank1 and tank2 are undder 15% then offset o33ef (for example) will be 1 then the light will come on.
    Yes, except don't use 33EF, but 66C0 (for example) instead.

    Have a go. Show us what you manage and I'll help make it work.

    Regards

    Pete
