FS2004 ground handling

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

I'd run FS2004 without problem on my old PC even though the old one was a
bit slow and didn't have the best of graphics cards - nonetheless FS2004
worked OK. I recently got a new PC expecting FS2004 to run even better on
it. In most respects it does but for some reason when still on the ground
any aircraft veers very strongly to the right when taxi-ing, taking off and
landing - as soon as I'm in the air the problem disappears - it's as if the
nosewheel steering is permanently skewed to one side. This never happened
running the same program on the old PC - has anyone else experienced the
same problem or can suggest a solution.??

Any answers greatly appreciated

Dave

    Something's amiss with the rudder setting. Try recalibrating the
    control(s) and/or widening the null zone a bit.

    Your new pc may be more realistic on the ground.
