pushback, panel, & main door


Three questions tonight please.
1) Should I be able to see the main door on the 145 open after <shift E>?  I've seen some screen shots showing it open, screen text says its opening as well...disregard..V3 craft work fine

2)Lost forward steering after pushback, panel & shift P methods.  does anyone have any ideas?...restart FS solved the problem.

3)I heard someone mention locking the panel/guages.  Is there a way to do this?  I grab for a knob or switch and move the entire panel.

I'm runnuing XP, FS 2002.

thank you again,



FSUIPC has an option to lock the panels, on the main screen I think.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "lost forward steering?" You mean you lose joystick control completely?

On the lower left side, you should see the square looking light switches, click on the center one, this controls your steering if its off and you go too another aircraft it will not steer either.. I found that out one time and traced it back too the ERJ switch... It locks the steering so you can't steer.

Bill B.,

Interesting. I wasn't aware of that problem.
