2.) How can I activate the hush-kits of the engines from the DC-8-30 Series? I have the FSX
My response to the above question is really posed for any FS2004 users that might require this information.
Firstly .... although those Ejectors were implementes as a means of noise reduction (they aren't Hush Kits such as we know today and shouldn't really be referrred to as such) the amount of noise they actually did end up reducing is debateable "according to contemporary reports".
On our DC8 panels the Ejectors, on the end of each engine tail pipe, are extended/retracted using the "EJECTOR" switchesw located on the Overhead panel (DC8-10, -20, -30, -40 panels only) .... which in turn activates/deactivates 4 lamps located at the bottom lwft corner of the main panel for each of these aircraft panel versions. Alternatiely .... the Ejectors, and their panel lamps too, may be activated/deactivated using the "W" keyboard command.
That (above) is how everything works in FS2004/FS9.
Ejectors should be extended for T/O .... and landing only. The DC8 manual I have here states as follows ....
After taking off with the DC-9 FS gives me this message: "Your fuel level is critically low in the selected tank. Automatic refuel is available now. To complete this action press CTRL + X." All the 3 tanks are almost fully loaded. Pressing CTRL + X will solve the problem for the next 2 minutes or so. How can I get rid of this annoying message? Thanks!

"Your fuel level is critically low in the selected tank. Automatic refuel is available now. To complete this action press CTRL + X.
As i'm sure this SUPPORT forum will testify ....
I've never, ever, seen such an event, or message, throughout my own nearly 2 years of extensive pre-release development testing of the DC9 similations we offer.
Nor have I seen such since either .... your report being "THE VERY FIRST" .... that i can immediately recall.
You are using the HJG supplied DC9 simulations .... I presume .... along with the HJG supplied DC9 panels for these too .... I trust !!!!
I'm simply guessing here .... but .... "IF" you're using a default MSFS panel .... then .... I suppose such a message is feasible through the simulations current FUEL configuration possibly not being completly compatible with this or other panel options.
"IF" .... you're using the HJG supplied DC9 panel series with our simulations then I, generally, have all FUEL SWITCHES activated (not just one or a few of them) .... as explained within the "STARTUP TUTORIAL" contained withiun my "DC9 PANEL INSTALLATION & HANDLING NOTES" .... and as stated above .... I've never seen such an issue .... and possibly as a result.
Yes, I AM using the HJG panel, and they are correctly installed, proper panel to proper plane. The problem just might be those fuel switches, I've got to get busy at studying how this release is working, a more complete addon than I was expecting. Thanks for help!!! Greatly appreciated!!

OK .... just flick'em all "ON" .... each of those fuel tank switches on the O/H sub panel and, hopefully, your issue should not ever arise again.
Some of our DC9 panel versions (for the heavier aircraft) feature an AUX tank switch which won't need being activated .... "IF" each of the other 6 (or it may be 4 .... I'm away from FS at the moment so ca't check) are selected "ON".
ALSO .... just cross check that you you're doimg, personally, is in-line with what I've prescribed within my DC9 PANEL INSTALLATION & HANDLING NOTES startup/panel configuration tutorials.
Do that .... and you can't/shouldn't ever go wrong

Given that the age in your profile is correct, it should perhaps not be the very first aircraft you tried out :-D but if you study the guidelines as pointed out by Mark, you won't be far off I think .... The aircrafts of HJG (and partners) are not of the standard MS-style where you can just jump in, press CTRL-E, and then fly away .... they are highly specialised each to the best effort of trying to replicate the real stuff as close as possible ..hence we do often get questions that could easlily have been figured out if one just took the time to get themselves aquainted with the aircraft and the instructions so well prepared by Mark .... ;-)
I have attempted to download the DC9-30 CF/F base pack version JT8D-11 v 1.13 from the HJG homepage. All models within that package show notification that it is password protected. I would not even think of downloading an HJG aircraft from anywhere else.

Could you make a screenshot of this message? At the moment I can't imagine why you need a password. I'm a HJG-user for several years now (using them in the trusted FS9) and I NEVER had to use a password for downloading and installing them into my FS9.

"NONE" of the publicly downloadable files currently available from the HJG website are password protected .... and I've never, ever, previously known of any case where someone has encountered such a situation.
Are you saying you get this indication as you try to download the file from the website pages ? .... OR .... Are you meaning you get it as you attempt to unzip/extract the file after downloading it to your own system ?
Either way .... this "SHOULD NOT" be happening (of course) .... and .... no protocol (that I'm aware of at least) is/has ever been, applied by HJG that might be the cause of such an experience.
"IF" your case is a result of "the latter" of the 2 situations which I've queried above .... then .... Is it possible that your downloads are, maybe, being "encripted" (in some way) on, or by, your own system .... even inadvertantly .... and as they download ?
