For the life of me I can't figure out how to open the passenger and cargo doors on the PMDG747 product. Can anyone give me some guidance?

Thanks.

Hey very simple, when your playing the game just go to the top bar were it sais PMDG then click on keyboard commands and then change the main category to Doors 747 and then for each door put a different key assigment.

By default, Shift-E opens the main passenger entry door.

I see an option for "other doors" but can any others be opened?

Thanks. That worked.

Yes, in the PMDG 737 and 747 all the cabin doors plus the cargo compartments can come open. I learned about this when it first happened to me when I used FS2 Crew for the first time on the 737. FS2 Crew opens all the doors at the gate, and if you don't follow the checklist precisely, they won't close. So I flew an entire flight with all the doors except the main passenger door open! All my luggage fell into the Mediterranean!

Ah, I'm on the 744 at the moment. I did use FS2Crew with the 737 but I never saw any other doors open and I always take a few spot view looks when I fly. Maybe it's an option with FS2Crew which is inactive by default or maybe I de-activated it without realising. But you can't open other doors with just the PMDG installation?

Here's hoping they release a version for the 744, though that smug, know-all co-pilot got on my wick sometimes.  Smile

I didn't mean to suggest that you can only do it with FS2Crew. I mapped my "other doors" key to Shift+D. Click on your PMDG tab inside FS, and you should be able to find your way to map the keys for PMDG planes.

OK, I'll dig a bit deeper. All I see under "Doors" is the passenger entry and "Other doors". Perhaps a revisit to the documentation is overdue.  Smile

I'm so stupid. I managed to miss that very specific information in your post. Sorry!

Edit: Got it working on the 737 but not on the 744 - must check the docs. Thanks.
