Hi Pat,

 

Correct, we only open door 2L.

 

The FSX default airports only have one air bridge, and it connects to door 2L.

 

Cheers,

Bryan I meant no Aibridge comes  out just door 2L opens with no air bridge. Another thing I found is if  I have been using FS2CREW earlier and then decide to fly without it  and just close the main panel as zzzzzzinstructed I find my FO still actting in a FO capacity

FS2Crew can only control the FSX jet bridge.

 

It's the exact same thing as pressing CTRL J on your keyboard to trigger the FSX jetbridge.

 

That 3rd party scenery you're using may not use the FSX default control for the Airbridge, so FS2Crew can't control it.

Closing  the panel by just using  the short cut key  doesn't  actually shut  down your fo  all it does is  to remove  the panel from your screen.  Just ensure you click on the hard mute button   before you close the panel

thanks your probably right, as CTRL J does not work either

Bryan,

My 3rd party Scenery is Aerosoft and I have 10 of their Airports. On.On further checking on the Aerosoft website I discovered that this is a known issue  and a patch is available called AES which you can download. It was not a problem for me previously as until I purchased FS2CREW I never used a gate or airbridge  problem  I have now is, where do I download it to as I have 10 different aerosoft airports

FS2Crew used to control AES, no?

 

No, we don't interact with AES.

 

We have our own AES/GSX style program under development called "Ultimate Ground Crew X".

Great Bryan any release or projected release  date yet a I have found another problem with another airport  EGKK (UK 2000 Scenery) in that the airbridge will not extend fully to door 2L stopping about 5 ft away which is very unrealistic. Surely I cannot be the only person with these problems or has everyone already got AES installed

Thought that aes only supported airports  that you pay credits for  and not all airports?

maybe your right Pete, I thought I had read it on their web site, mine is a simple request I need an airbridge  that butts up to the 777 I am getting feed up with game of Tennis that Aerosoft and FS2CREW are playing with me. This tennis ball has lost its bounce

Hi Pat,

 

Sorry to pass the buck  B)

 

You're going to want to ask the developers of that 3rd party scenery and AES.

 

FS2Crew can only control the default FSX jetway.

Have you assigned AES credits to EGLL airport via AES Help, activated EGLL in AES Help, and restarted FSX?

yes I have  Ollie, all of them problem is I cannot see the new EGLL extended as being installed on my computer but yet Aerosoft Launcher does find it, but AES help only finds th UK2000 version of EGLL which I installed months ago, but I cannot again locate it on my computer to delete it.

thanks Bryan, its Aerosoft and I am still waiting for them to respond. this pp customer service is one of the reasons I will not buy X Plane or Airbus products. Any release date yet for your Ultimatum Ground Crew X release, before Xmas ?

THE MORAL OF THIS STORY:  Now most of us have pay-ware scenery add-ons, but if you want to run FS2CREW  with them, you cannot, I went to one of my default FSX  Airports that I do not have pay-ware for yet KORD and everything worked great, so the pay-ware scenery companies need to incorporate the FSX method of CTRL J for the airbridge

You can still use FS2Crew, you'll just need to manually control the air bridge, assuming the scenery developers created a way of doing that in their 3rd party scenery.

that would be fine if it works. It works fine with the default FS  airports (yuk ! who would want them) but most if not all developers  will not model the airbridge extending  and retracting I wonder why? maybe its to squeeze more money out of us like Aerosoft and their AES I do not mind paying for something that works

Just throwing my experience in here... I have several add ons like EGLL Ultimate and KJFK and basically some gates have a working air bridge and some don't but the gates that do use ctrl-j to operate them.

Fly Tampa Dubai I have found most gates do have an air bridge although I haven't fully tested with FS2Crew yet to see if any of the add on airports automatically extends the air bridge's.

Patrick, I have FSDT's airport add-ons as well as UK2000's Xtreme Series,and FT's airport add-ons, plus Aerosoft stuff. The only air-bridges that I have found that does not operate using Ctrl+J is the FT's products. Rest all work fine with FS2Crew for any aircraft.
