While you can execute an RF command my invoking the command line prompt:
"~" followed by <CR>
I find it a PITA to do it each time you start the RF Sim.
So.....why not include the command of choice to the RF "startup" script that executes each time you start the RF Sim....
On Windows 7, the RF8 startup script can be found in the folder:
C:\\Users\<username>\My Documents\RealFlight 8\Scripts\startup
Use "notepad" to edit this script....adding any keyboard commands that you choose.
This also works for RF6.5....and the startup script can be found in the same location.
I tested this for RF6.5 and RF8....and it works great!
For instance, when I crash, I like to have RF display the crash costs and keep a total crash cost for each aircraft I use.
So....add the command "showmethemoney" to the startup script.
Another great command that is not listed is "kablooey".....
Add this keyboard command to the script, and upon crashing, there will be a fiery explosion with smoke.
This one is great for any nitro burning aircraft....but it works for any crash.
