Would someone tell me how to place that button on the overhead. I have no idea how to find the x and y of the panel.Scott

LOL Awww, well Gates never was one to stay pressurized . . .

Even more scary is the fact that you can open all the doors in flight. You would have that MS would have disabled that option - or am I being too hopeful.Can't see many people wanting to parachute from a T7 at altitude (might be airline dependant of course!!*:-* Rick

Aye, I do like how it blends in with almost any panel by it's simple button nature. I really like that.And I knew about the re-mapping bit, too, but I always like the idea of knowing it will work every time without fiddling with key combos :-)

That's it Christopher!!!!!!For those of us who have never been able to open cargo doors with shift this or that or whatever ... hahahaha ... a very handly little piece of software.

Guys,It is the Shft+ combination FS doesn't like. Change your door to something like o and then do o+2 for the cargo and FS likes it much better...-PaulLiquid CooledAMD 4000 San Diego2 Gigs Kingston Corsair XMS CL2Dual 7800 GTX 24 inch widescreen dual 19 inch LCDRaid-0

I think you may be referring to this, which I just found after reading your post. I am going to install this on a few ac as well :-)Filename: cx_cargo_door.zip License: Freeware Added: 18th June 2004 Downloads: 7277 Author: Thomas Scholz Size: 9kb

FastfreddyI looked but could not find it ... ####!!! There is a Cargo Door "gauge" which lets you add a "CARGO" button whereever you want (I have it installed on the overhead to the left of the ADIRU). I use it on all my aircraft where there is not an option to set keys to the various doors ... works fine on 737s and the 767 ... also works fine on this newly updated T7.Sorry I can't give you a filename ... but you can find it on AVSIM library.Good Luck!!!

Thanks guys, now it works! :)I had just to tap the "2" key several times...

FS is crazy sometimes on that. It works for me, but I know many individuals that have this issue on a lot of aircraft.I am actually counting days to see how long before someone releases a panel add-on for the T7 that opens the secondary doors :-) Seen this on almost every other addon :-)What I do on mine, though, is press the SHIFT+E, and just as soon as I release those keys I press "2" a few times quickly. This usually works. Same for pushbakcs, which can be weird in FS, as a lot of times the AC will not turn with default pushback methods unless you nail the number key a few times immediately after pressing SHIFT+P.Hope this helps.

Posted 06 April 2006 - 08:04 AM
Mhhh, I've tried several times but with no success, maybe i don't have the correct timing on key pressing sequence...

I'm sorry if it's a dumb question, but...... how do I open the cargo door on the triple 7? :-doh Thanks! ;)

I have long since reinstalled FS (twice since this thread began), so i no longer have the CFG. however if I do use this icon again (I am actually in real world flight school now and have not been doing much simulator time) I would be VERY hapy to post it. In fact I need to head to bed as I worked a 12 hour shift, but when i wake up I'll have a sticky note here reminding me to see if I saved the old CFG somewhere to post :-)
