A321 Wing views via Virtual Cockpit

I just downloaded the PA A321 into FSX. When attempting to use it within FSX, the default Cockpit is available but when I attempt to switch to Virtual Cockpit (to move around to get a wing view), the option is blacked out. When I am in cockpit view, I move the toggle around to look at the wings and ...

Opening and closing doors

I am running FSX and PA's A320 v2.1. Shift+E opens the main board/deboard cabin door. I have the settings configured with E+3 and E+5 for the "wings fold" and "tail hook" so that the cargo doors and remaining doors open. When I press E+3, the two cargo doors open. When I press E+5, the two doors on ...

Developers: Longer Engine Start?

Well, I posted this as a general question in the support section but it has come to my attention by a fellow user that it would make sense to ask the A320 developers this question. Is there something in the aircraft.cfg that could make the engine start last longer. I have a great 35 second start up ...

Longer Engine Start?

When I start my engines on the PA A320, the start up lasts for a short 15 seconds before the engine is fully started. I have these great start up sounds but never get to hear the full 25-30 seconds of them. Does any one know how to make the start up last longer to make it more realistic? Something i...
