• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

MSFS MV-22B Osprey Release 2.0

Assuming you are not using my AddonV1-for-Osprey-Rel2 (so: use the standard MV22B-Rel2 package as-is) and use the default key commands for hoist operation (like Ctrl-U, J , and K ):
The only difference between the default FSX-Accel EH101, and the MV22B-Rel2 is, that in the MV22B you explicitely need to open the Hoist door first.
In the EH101 this is implicite (the hoist door opens automatically when you type "Ctrl-U")

So what you need to do in the MV22B:
1. Open the Hoist (bottom) door, by mousewheeling the Hook selectorknob in the overhead panel, to the ON position.
2. Type "Cntl-U" to extend the Hoist arm; this take appr. 10 sec (== fixed time in FSX-Accel).
3. Then Type "J" to arm the cable (in Spotplane view, you will see a short cable appear underneath the MV22B)
4. Type another "J" to lower the cable. Now you should see the red message text "Sling Hook Enabled" in your screen.
5. Type another "J" (or "K") to stop the cable
6. Type a "K" to raise the cable; if the cable is fully raised, the text message "Sling Hook Enabled" should disappear.

Steps 2-6 should work exactly the same as in the default FSX-Accel EH101.
If it doesn't: where does it go wrong ??

Yeah, I still can't get the hoist to work, any ideas?
can you specify where it not work? from step 1 through 6.
From Step.2. All I can do is open the hoist doors, the hoist doesn't actually activate. I've also tried copying the hoist code from the CFG for the FSX EH101 helicopter, but that disrupts the panels on the Osprey.
I am having a small problem with the MV-22B, After flying it for over 50 hours, when I open to fly it, I cannot get the Instruments to come up.

The visibility selectors (left/top corner of the MDFs) are all in the Off position ....
I turned all the visibility selectors to day and as you can see, they are still blank

I was wondering on the status of porting your MV-22B to FS2020. I was very excited to read you were working on it as it is my favorite aircraft to fly in FSX.
My best to you and good luck in the development.
I can't wait to see it.
