Hello Fellow Concorde Fans!
I have four Concorde aircraft -- all of them freeware from FlightSim and other sites. And they all do the same thing. . . .they refuse to stop after landing! When I press F1 to cut the throttle just before landing, after touchdown, the aircraft will decelerate to about 30-35 kts -- and no further. Then I step on the brakes to further slow the aircraft -- but when I release the brakes after coming to a dead stop, the aircraft immediately starts to accelerate forward again! Multiple hits on the F1 key produce no results -- the only way I can get the aircraft to stand still is to either engage the parking brake, or kill the engines altogether with (CTRL/SHIFT/F1).
And -- in case anyone is wondering -- I am not using a joystick of any kind with FS2004 -- so I know the problem is not joystick related.
The model files involved are -- CONCORDE_N.MDL, CONCORDE.MDL, SSTAF.MDL -- in case anyone is aware of known problems with these model files.
The funny part is -- when I first tested the aircraft on the ground, without taking off, all of the engine function keys worked perfectly normal. . . .pressing the F1 key did indeed cut the engines, and the aircraft coasted to a complete stop without using the brakes. It was only after I had flown the aircraft that the engine keys once again resumed their bizarre behavior after landing.
Since it is only these four Concorde aircraft that exhibit this behavior out of my collection of over 150 aircraft, I can't help but feel that there is something wrong with them. But, I am always willing to appreciate that there may be some operational aspect of this aircraft that I am simply not familiar with, that accounts for this strange behavior.
So I humbly ask all of you out there to share your experiences in this regard, and ask for whatever assistance you might provide.
Also -- are there any Concorde downloads out there that anyone knows about (even payware) that don't have problems with stopping?
My humble thanks to all!
