Dragging chute not released

Hi there,

 

I know this is kind of a stupid question but...I just can't seem to make the dragging chute work when landing the Su-25T

 

I know I have to press the 'P' key once I touched down and below 200Km/h...and I do so, and I can even see the little tail door opening up if I switch to the external view, but nothing is coming out of it.

 

I made almost a perfect landing (the best I can do at least :), soft touch down, nothing goes wrong, but the chute just doesn't come out, and so I can only rely on the wheel brake and most of the times I just end up outside the runway :(

 

I even made a stupid test, trying to release the chute just before taking off, and it worked! it was useless but it worked (of course I just quit the mission and start again without releasing the chute early on, so that is not the reason it doesn't come out afterwards :)

 

What am I doing wrong? Maybe I'm still going too fast (200Km/h)? Is there any known bug preventing if from working right now? (I'm using v1.2.4.12913)

Limit for drogue chute deployment is 300km/h. No known bug as far as I am aware - would you please post a track so we can have a look?

Are your engines at idle?

 

What airfield is this at?

 

And most importantly............ A short track file.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

Ooooohhh yes forgot about that: The single-biggest reason for 'OMFGWTF where's my chute gone?' phenomenon usually experienced on very short runways.

Thanks for the responses guys.

 

I'd say I got my engines idle, or so I think (as I pull the throttle all the way back).

 

I tried again and it's the same. Not the best landing in history, but enough to see what is happening. I'm attaching the track file.

 

You might have to scale time a bit with CTRL-Z to skip the flying part...and then back to normal with SHIFT-Z when landing.

 

If you switch to the external view, you'll see the chute going out and the rope being broken...touch down speed was around 240Km/h, and throttle I'd say it's iddle, but I'm clearly doing something wrong...or maybe the throtle axis is not correctly calibrated and it's not at 0%.

 

I'll try it again double chacking the throttle axis before, and landing at a lower speed.

Just watched and your throttle is definitely at idle. What are you using to deploy the chute? The keyboard? Or your flight-stick? Could be a sticky key.

Ok I tried again and this time it worked.

I went to the game controls and played a bit with the throttle axis settings, just for making sure it was correctly reporting 0% when it was all the way back. Clicked on the invert axis twice...I know that jast made nothing but just in case... :P

 

The touch down was around 210Km/h this time, and I waited a little bit before pressing P to make sure I was below 200Km/h...and it just worked...

 

So there was no bug as expected...it was just me being not skilled enough I guess. Or maybe that stupid axis tweaking somehow changed something...who knows :)

 

Thanks anyway guys for the help, and sorry for the inconvience.
