·  Is it possible to add a virtual cockpit to an aircraft?

No, not the way you can add a 2d cockpit. The virtual cockpit is part of the 3dmodel. If you want to add a virtual cockpit, you need to know how to design aircraft models.

·  Is it possible to see damage on an aircraft when I hit something?

Visual damage is not modelled anymore on the default aircraft in FSX. However, if you import FS2004 default aircraft into FSX or install FS2004 add-on aircraft into FSX, you'll still be able to see those effects. Make sure that the crash detection is on in the realism settings and check if visual_damage = 1 in the aircraft.cfg of every aircraft.

·  When I start FSX or select an aircraft to fly, I get a security warning message telling me the publisher could not be verified. What does it mean and what do I have to do?

Third-party developed gauges and modules are verified when you start FSX or select an aircraft in the aircraft selection menu. When you install freeware add-ons or even add old FS2004 default aircraft, you might encounter this security message. It's nothing to worry about, if you're sure you want to use the new module or aircraft and you're sure that the publisher can be trusted, you should click "run". After that, another small screen will show, asking you if you want to designate this module as 'trusted' software. Click yes if you don't want being asked again, or click no if you want to use this software for this session only. Beware, some gauges are too old and will not work in FSX. NOTE: This is only an advise, you're doing this on your own risk

·  The jetways don't attach to my aircraft when I hold and press , why?

Make sure you're at the right parking spot and if you have "advanced animations" checked in the display settings. Otherwise your videocard doesn't support shader 2.0. Videocards like the NVIDIA 5200 (FX) and ATI 9200 series do not support this kind of animations.

·  Is it possible to be pushed back form the gate?

Yes, press < SHIFT>+

to start going backwards. If you want to turn: +

then <1> to push back and turn left, +

then 2 to push back and turn right. Press +

again to stop moving.

·  Can I open the doors of an aircraft?

Yes, hold and press and do the same to close them. Some aircraft have more moving parts like cargo doors. Usually, when you hold and press and a number (1,2 or 3 on your keyboard), other doors will open. But the movement of a door may be assigned to other keys like the tailhook. See the readme file when you download add-on aircrafts for information about opening doors

·  Are FS2004 aircraft compatible with FSX?

Yes, you should be able to fly FS2004 aircraft in FSX. However, some add-on aircraft may cause problems with certain gauges, modules or other additional software. Some payware developers released or will release updates in order to make their products compatible with FSX. Freeware developers may do the same if nessecery, but since it is their hobby and not their job, some might choose to move on with the development of new aircraft for FSX only and keep their current products for FS2004 only.
