YES THERE IS!When you are at the terminal, Right click.Find "Menu Bar"Click on it.The menu bar should be on the upper portion of your screen.Go to "Options"Go to "Simulation Rate"Click "Slowest"The simulation will reduce to one-fourth (1/4) speed and this increases the frames you get while the jetway connects. It is not MAJOR. But it is ABSOLUTELY noticeable. You will not be waiting as long. Have fun!

The OP,s question was about the speed of the jetway,NOT the sim rate....Fr.Bill knows of which he speaks....By the way,check his post count against your,s.....You can learn alot from him,as I have...

I play with the simulation rate all the time. It's easy to do, and it speeds things up or slows them down to make FSX more tolerable/understandable. It's a decent solution, especially if the sim captain's aircraft is just sitting there. If you are concerned about the jetways for AI aircraft, that's different. You either use them as they are or remove them.Jeff ShylukSenior Staff ReviewerAVSIM

But increasing the sim rate does increase the jetways "speed" does it not?BTW, the post count comment is pretty petty, perhaps the gentleman recently registered but is a member of the ACES dev team... you never know.

Depends on how you look at it...Increasing the sim(not very realistic) speed increases everything,not what the OP asked..Maybe petty to you,but not to me,as Bill is quite an established "pro" around here....If he were a member of the ACES team,he would not be asking that question..Simple logic..But,I still respect your opinion...

Somebody enlighten me, please... how the heck does slowing the sim down to 1/4 speed - increase the speed of the jetway????? Does the jetway, perhaps have its own internal clock?? Does it march to a different drummer, perhaps??Not being much of a computer guy - I would hesitate to suggest to the more learned among us (particularly when someone is shouting) that the jetway will also slow down to 1/4 speed.... No?? Am I missing something here? Clue me in here, Fr. Billy :(

Paul, it was only by accident that I happened to notice this resurection of a long dead thread...You are absolutely correct. Slowing the sim rate will likewise slow the jetway animation.

.....and to resurect the thread yet again, is it possible to simply turn off the jetway animations without also affecting special animations of some addon sceneries?Thanks

Yes it is just disable the first door exit in the aircraft.cfg file :-)
