View Full Version : TEXT--Can't turn it off!
11-02-2002, 12:31 PM
Shift + D won't turn off the text on screen in CFS3. After seeing "Press E to start engine" a thousand times I'm tired of it-- and all the other messages. (Ctrl+Shift+L does work to turn off and on the aircraft labels) I've even searched all the *.xml files to see if I could find a "Toggle text" command. If anyone can help me get rid of this annoying text please let me know how. THANX!

Turning off the text for damage reports (look out, pilot, yet another bullet has struck your plane again!) is covered in the readme. I'm not sure if its in the inflight help, or the .pdf manual, but I saw it in the little readme. Not sure what all text you can turn off.

Yes, Billking20, I found all reference on how the text should work. Printed all the PDF manuals, readme file, and read all the onscreen help. The aircraft labels toggle with Ctrl+ Shift + L, which works. However, the On Screen Text like, Press E To Start Engines,toggles with Shift + D. Shift+D does NOT work! You can't turn off any text unless you edit the Windows/Application Data/Microsoft/CFS3/ConfigOverrides.xml, file.
MY N key brings up a checklist... hmmm
To togle the plane lables... use ctrl/shift/L
Hey, it was all I could do to disable the "auto-insert" notification in XP!.... lol
(the thing that automatically reads and starts the CD-Rom when it's put into the tray)

You can disable all the text using the cfs3config tool. It's in the Custom | Overrides section. There are two settings: Disable Advisor Messages and Disable Simulation Warnings.

To turn off automatic cd run. Hold the "shift" key as your CD starts up.
Ok.. didn't know that. My fix was to permanently disable the auto-insert notification via the registries.
