LAX Patch??

Archived from groups: alt.games.microsoft.flight-sim (More info?)

When landing at LAX, the controller always gives instructions on
landing on rwyway 6L. On the approach, it is changed to rwyway 7L.
Also, the ILS Hold takes you away from the airport. Is there a patch
for this is FS 9?

One other question: All aircraft have rolling wheels and so forth to
make flying real. Why is it that when on the ground, you cannot have
the front wheel turn so you could guide the aircraft as instructed to
the airport, instead of using the brakes?
Thank you

    If you have auto-rudder selected in setup, you can steer the nose wheel with
    the yoke/stick just like using the ailerons to bank left/right. If you've
    got pedals, use them with auto-rudder off. Or if auto rudder is off, with
    no pedals, I suppose you could use the keyboard rudder commands, but I've
    never tried, or the twist stick, or...........

    I've never had this problem. I always get told to land on 24 R or L,
    whatever it is.

    Well....what you could do is download AFCAD from flightsim.com or
    avsim.com, open the LAX file (back it up first!) and change the runway
    assignments until you're satisfied.

    AFCAD should automatically save it under a different name. It doesn't bother
    the original, but the new one that is created simply superceeds it. To
    return to orignal just delete the *.AF2 file that was created.

    I forgot about that.
    I haven't used it for a while, so thanks for clearing it up.
