K guys I think DoolittleRaider has been stuck in his cockpit long enough. Let's help the man.

Here's a link to my google search CLOD

I don't believe you can open the door on the spit. But I'd get a second opinion

On the left side of cockpit are a red bar attached on hatch, I think that are a crowbar, probable for use in these cases. smile

Option >Controls>General map key for these commands:

Toggle Canopy/Hatch/Door

or

Open Canopy/Hatch/Door
Close Canopy/Hatch/Door

and

Jettison Canopy/Hatch/Door (Use one key far from one used for above commands, to avoid "accidents")

Dont pay attention for HUD messages when hit these commands because they are... "typically CloD" (confuse).

This is a good question I have wondered about for a while. I have all the keys listed above set in my CLOD, but none of them seem to open the door. Has anyone actually been able to open it? I was starting to think that is just wasn't possible to do.

Open Canopy/Hatch/Door


The command is sequential, first key press open canopy, second open door/hatch etc...



HUD message:

Hatch door:Open
Hatch door:Both

To close is the same thing. First key press close door, second canopy/hatch



Note that in this case the first message HUD message is confuse:

Hatch door: Open ???
Hatch door: Closed

Just ignore then and observe physical movement of canopy/door/hatch.

"Typically CloD". smile

Sokol,

do you know if this information listed in the new ATAG manual ?

there are many of these complex commands in CoD for various tasks (good they simulate each step for ex of what is needed to bail out etc..), but with no proper CoD manual provided with the game at release many of these commands were never documented



Be advised, we got zips in the wire

It's right there under "controls." You really don't have to look in the ATAG manual. You just find the command and assign a button to it. Now, Bish, don't tell me that after all this time flying the Spitfire, you didn't know you could drop the door! Lol!

This is rather confusing, do you mean that you have to have the separate controls (open/close) to open the hatch, so that basically you have to open twice to get the hatch open?
*edit* I guess that's exactly how it's done
