FSX aircraft exits - pulling my hair


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've recently acquired Majestic's Q400 addon. Aircraft exits are supposed to be openend/closed via the standard SHIFT-E-([1], 2,3,4) key sequences.

I've never had any problem with other aircraft opening those doors using the respective key sequences, but for some reason it does not work on the Q400, although it is documented to work and apparently works for many people out there.

Opening the main exit using SHIFT-E is fine. Anything that comes after SHIFT-E is apparently ignored, since it is always the main exit that toggles.

Now, I've already tried the built-in FSUIPC fix, playing around with the time setting for the allowed period between SHIFT-E and the subsequent key press.

I've also assigned buttons to TOGGLE_AIRCRAFT_EXIT commands with the respective parameters (2, 3 or 4), hoping that I could prevent any key press timing problems.

All my attemps failed.

Anybody has any idea what could prevent these pesky doors from reacting to the appropriate inputs?

What other FSUIPC trick could I possibly pull on that problem?

Thank you.

That's designed to stop the cancellation effect of intervening controls, something that was certainly necessary on some add-on aircraft which seem to be sending controls very frequently, internally.

Well, you've really tried everything that's likely to work. There's only one remaining possibility, and that is writing to the FSUIPC4 offset for the door control -- but since that merely sends the TOGGLE_AIRCRAFT_EXIT control with the parameter, I suspect that won't work either. If you did want to try it you'd need to assign to Offset byte togglebits (or setbits or clearbits) with offset x3367 and values 1, 2, 4 or 8 for doors 1-4 (those values can be added for multiple doors).

Have you tried Majestic's support? I've noticed AVSIM have a dedicated forum too now.

Regards

Pete
