FSXA Starting FSX with a mission

#1
Is it possible to start FSX in a mission mode?
It can be done with a saved flight, when I make that flight the default flight (I checked off the show opening screen).

If you load a mission, you can't make it as a default mission...

In FSX.cfg I find:
[STARTUP]
DEMO=0
SHOW_OPENING_SCREEN=0
STARTUP_DEMO=
LoadWindow=1

Can I change DEMO= 0 to DEMO=1. I think I can, but what to do with STARTUP_DEMO= ????
Is this for a startup mission, or is this for something else?

Not really sure what you like to do but there is no default mision that can be set and a mission will not show up in the saved flights list.

If you want FSX to launch a mission directly on startup you can create a desktop shortcut pointing to the according mission.flt file
The syntax in the shortcut is command line style.for example:
C:\Program files\Microsoft Games\FSX\fsx.exe C:\Program files\Microsoft Games\FSX\Missions\My mission\mission.flt

Hope this helps,
Dave

Thank you dave. That's what I was looking for.
For an exhibition I want to boot a computer with FSX, in a mission-mode: so, power on, and FSX starts with the mission. Without the help of a person, mouse or keyboard. Only pressing the power-button.
I can place the shortcut in the start directory.
Thank You!

If you want to support multiple missions, you may want to look into kiosk mode. See kiosk.rtf and KioskSettings.cfg in the root Microsoft Flight Simulator X directory for additional information.

I tested kiosk. But this is not what I want. I want to program one mission with several small missions in it. So there will be always animation on the screen with voice.
I already know how to program another plane, a different place, change the time, make a menu, program a key without a menu, and so on...

Greetings

I have now a mission where you can choose (with a menu) an airplane: a cessna, a Extra 300 or a deltawing. Then the person can fly 4 minutes with that plane. After that time, the airplane is set to it's starting place, and the menu is back on the screen, for the next pilot to choose...

Good to hear you got it working the way you want. :)
