jeez man CHILL LOL!!! One reason the cargo doors dont close is because maybe you dont have the correct electrical systems setup to do so. Or maybe its a problem on your end?? Not 1 person yet has complained about doors closing but you...you shouldnt say the product is bad just beacause you dont know how to close the cargo doors. and honestly what makes a simulation a simulation is not how nice the danm doors open up. The PMDG 744 systems are more detailed than most FS addons...And if you didnt want to buy the product just beacause your doors wont close i think you should be playing an arcade flight sim on Playstation or XBOX if all you are looking for is opening and closing door animations.

I just cant figure this aircraft out the manual is totally usless, the one thing I need to know is how to keep the aircraft to follow the route but it tells me that theres no active route, what does that mean? I put in the waypoints is not that the route? To tell you the truth I am really discouregd about this.

THe manual isnt useless, infact its one of the most well written and most comprehensive manuals youll find for FS. What your problem seems to be is you dont want to take the time required to learn the manual and learn the aircraft. PMDG's simulations have a HUGE learning curve thats fun. Read the manual, do exactly as it says and youll be fine.Oh and my name is Randy whats yours?SIGN YOUR NAME.I be when you were born your mother was so happy to see you she cried out OH LOOK AT MY BABY (INSERT NAME HERE)

Did you then EXECecute the plan?Like everyone else said, "RTFM" (Read The Friendly Manual), then read it again.

Ok I read the WHILE part on the FMC now I got only one question about it, when it sais "route discontinued" do I send that to the schratch pad and the put it in the little square boxes provided? Oh and about the doors I got them to close and it wasn't because of me! I had to restart EVERYTHNG then they worked perfectly fine, so my apologies for acting up so badly!

Um I think I figured out the FMC let me give you what I know and if I am wrong please correct me: First: Load the FMC Second: Load the Origion, and Dest. Third: Activate it by pressing EXEC Fourth: Load the way points Sixth: load and activate the app. and Waypoints And go on my way!

Sir how long have you been operating the PMDG 747-400 Prior to operating the 400F, for FMC is still the same. So now unless you bought the both of them at the same time and have been having no problems with the -400 then i don't see how these problems can just appear.

jojojojo, or whatever your name is, you've got the basics correct. Next step is to set your altitude and speed useing the VNAV button. Remember that this is a true recreation of the real thing. You MUST read the manual. I've had the Queen for a few months now and can honestly say that it's the best and easiest to use FMC of ANY Payware aircraft available. If you wan to just enter a direct route may I suggest you use a POSKY 747 with the default Garmen GPS?As for the doors, I've not got the 400F but i'd assume it's just the same as the passenger model, ie, from the PMDG menu on the FS9 toolbar there is a section to select 'hotkeys' for all the doors.Simon Dove

Simon is right, however the Bus Circuit must be right also as stated in the manual. If you got them open, then that means that at one point you had the right Bus Circuit.

1. Be advised that the views of most of the people who responded do not represent the rules of PMDG.2. We were asking you to sign your posts with your name which is the same thing they would do in the LDS Forum.3. The LDS 767 is just as complex as the PMDG 747 so you won't be getting a "break"4. Simply put you are not going to find a better payware addon for Microsoft Flight Simulator.For someone who allegedly spent $85 for both the PAX and F version of the 744, you don't seem willing to read an excellent manual to find that all the answers are in there.

I need one more question answerd that is not in the Manual, I never found it unless I focused to hard but I cant seem to get the auto pilot to kep the plane level at FL350 or any other Flight level, it worked before but the last time I tried it said could not keep ALT, could anybody help me?Oh...and by the way my name is Bruno Lebeu

Bruno,in all seriousness, your posts are absolutely out of line. If you have bothered to read the manual at all your will find the answers to all of your questions. It sounds to me like you just want to "jump in and let her rip". That is not going to get you very far at all in this aircraft.Quite frankly I'm surprised anyone has even answered your posts. Even the guys at LVLd wouldn't put up with this nonsense.
