You'd need to hit the trigger points for the FA cabin announcements. However, the FA cabin announcements automatically play everytime. It's the volume that's the key.I suspect, however, your volume is just too low.Spin your mouse wheel "up" several times... that'll put the volume at max.

Sorry, you need a mouse with a mouse wheel.I haven't seen a mouse without a mouse wheel in years.... they're dirt cheap... I might suggest picking one up.Not just for FS2Crew, but they make browsing web pages much easier.Cheers,

Or, if you don't want to buy a wheel mouse, you can download X-Mouse button controllerhttp://www.highrez.co.uk/downloads/XMouseButtonControl.htmIt's free, and can emulate mouse wheel scroll using your left an right mouse buttons.Using it:1. create a profile for FSX where left mouse button click sends mouse wheel down, and right mouse button sends mouse wheel up command2. make sure "bypass all actions when scroll lock is on" is ticked3. now when you toggle scroll lock key, you can use left and right mouse buttons for adjusting the volume.Note: I haven't tried this but it should work!Kimmo Kylevoice set managementBanner_FS2Crew_Team.png

Hi LesHmm.. let's see if I understand you correctly :( FS2Crew needs to be active in the Configuration manager, otherwise the whole program won't work!As for the jetway, it will be connected when you run the preflight events by pushing the START button on the config panel. Also you need to be positioned at a gate. Gate departure set to on and AES set to off from the config panel - that's the default if you haven't touched them.Kimmo Kylevoice set managementBanner_FS2Crew_Team.png

One quick note be certain that you are back far enough from the terminal, front wheel on the yellow stop bar. For some reason FSX puts you a bit too close to the terminal and fs2crew will not set jetway etc, if position is not correct. shift+P to back up to stop bar then activate fs2crew, everything will work then.

Les, it should have no affect on frame rates. We beta tested this on a lot of different machines with no frame rate loss.However, if you are experiencing a massive frame rate drop, that can happen because your Speech Recognizer is not set to English - US.Make sure your Recognizer in Speech Recognition Properties (via the Control Panel) is set to English - US.Otherwise all sorts of thing won't work.Cheers,

Les,Make sure you mouse over the CAB button, and scroll the mouse wheel up (to turn the volume up).You'll see a dot on the CAB button when the volume is in a position other than off.I hope to make a video today so you can see it in action.

Karl is correct. You have to be in the right position or FSX won't connect the Jetway. That an FSX thing. Also ensure in the FS2Crew Config Panel that GATE DEP is set to YES, AES is set to NO and Pushback required is set to YES.

We can do that... I'll check your settings personally.Download a program called "TeamViewer" and send me an email:admin@fs2crew.comCheers,Also, email me your panel.cfg file located here:Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\B737_800\panelI suspect your panel.cfg file may have got bungled up with the FS2Crew entries somehow added twice.Cheers,

Okay, we solved Les' issue.The problem was that the FS2Crew gauge entries somehow (not sure how), were added twice to his 737's panel.cfg file. So basically the FS2Crew gauges got loaded twice.That's noooo good.If that happens your mouse cursor will change to an hour glass/busy symbol, and your frame rate will go to like zero.If that should happen to you, please email me and I'll fix your panel.cfg.Best,

You can hear the FA cabin announcements if you turn the volume for them up.By default they are at volume level 0.Mouse over the CAB button and scroll your mouse wheel forward a few times to put the volume level up near the top.A dot over the cab button should be visible when the button is not off.Cheers,

hi bryan ok the ones i dont get is the meals and in flight entertainment is there a reason why??
Their triggers are based on altitude. So make sure you're climbing high enough.IFE: Trigger is climbing through 31,000 feet.Meals: Trigger is climbing through 20,000 feet.FS2Crew must not be in descent mode for these announcements to play, so don't run the Descent Checklist until your close to the top of descent. Also the mode must not be in Pre-Flight.

Hello,I also have the problem that I can not hear the FA's announcements on the PMDG 737.You are referring to the "CABIN" button on the 737's radio panel, aren't you? There is a yellow dot on this button and I spinned my mousewheel forward many times, but though I don't hear any FA announcements.Do I have to chnage any of the volumes in the FS9 settings?RegardsOlli
