Sorry to bother you but I have a problem.

I have a clean install of the orbiter (100509)beta.msi , Ucgo20_100114.exe, DGIV2_20100114.exe, and orbitersound 3.5.exe. Nothing else. My problem is when moving a DGIV (taxiing onto a runway or when it rolls to a stop). This doesn't happen during flight however. When I taxi the DGIV to the runway, the computer starts yelling about massive G forces, I hear the sounds of my crew grunting and breathing badly. I can have the engines on just enough to move it and I get the result.  After I halt it stops after a few second or so. I can understand the crew kicking into panic mode when I even move the craft due to my lackage of piloting skills but when taxiing towards the runway? (chuckle)

I discovered this when I fired up one of the tutorials where the DGIV is sitting at the KSC (Autopilot ascent I believe) and I decided to move the DGIV to the runway.

And when I landed later on (pretty smoothly with just a squeek of the tires) and most of the crew passed out, and excessive G warnings as well.)

Hmmm, that's strange. I taxi with the DG-IV and I don't have G's excess alarm. However, I run with Orbiter 2006, not the new beta. Maybe, it's a bug of incompatibility that Dan didn't found.

Likewise, I have no problems with Taxiing with the 2006 version.  I decided to install it with the new 2010 after noting that the DGIV-2 was compatable with the 2006 and the 2010 versions.  I figure it's likely that it's something that Dan hasn't found yet.  Could you do me a favor and download the 2010 edition and see if you get the same problem?  I'm curious if it's just me or with the latest edition?  Since it installs to a different directory and all it shouldn't affect your 2006 edition at all.

Thank you, I'd appreciate it.  

Download link for the Beta

That's the version (100509) that I downloaded and tried with it.

Hi Bendarr !

Sorry for this "long" waiting time but I'm a bit busy. However, I found time to test it and I discovered something. Orbiter BETA 100509 do not exist anymore. The latest version is the 100515 made few days later. So, I can pretty much consider that Martin had make some changes and it could resolve your problem. I test the new BETA but, and I'm sad to say this, doesn't work very well for me. I've installed the VC Librairies included in the file but I have a lot of bug. Also, since few months, I can't install Dan's add-ons. It's due to Norton Internet Security (do not buy this) who can't analyse it and use 100 % of the UC. It does it with many other programs so don't panic Dan.

I would recommend that you install the latest BETA and test it with the DG-IV.

Also, I remeber that Energia make a 50 MaxG everytime you run a scenario but your Gs are at 1. Maybe it's the same problem ?

ok, I'll give the 100515 version a download and see if that takes care of it. I'll let you know and thanks for taking the time to test it out.

Good news, preliminary tests are good.  No more excessive G warning.  I'll give it some more tests to be sure but hings are looking good so far.

Well, no more excessive G warnings with the 100515 or the 100520 versions.  That's for the good.  There is however one problem.  I decided to practice an eva and had one of my crew members get out and start walking towards the KSC building.  He got maybe 20 feet before dieing in both versions (100515 and 100520).  The 2006P1 edition however has no problems.  So the problem is partially taken care of.  Normally I figure it wouldn't be a big deal but imagine someone flying all the way to the moon, evaing a crew member and having them die right there.  That would be upsetting to say the least.  (chuckle)
