I know this has got to be a big begginer question, but, how do you open more than 1 torpedo tube door at a time, so they stay open until you have fired.
Im not on about using the Q key, as this only selects the current door, and closes after a small amount of time.
Is there a way ?

You can manually flick open the doors in two locations (actually you click the toggles with your mouse pointer)

1. at the wpns officers table at eye level you'll see a control box with 5 tube lights, flick the ones you want open.

2. in the conning tower, there is the same type of control box on the starboard side.

Have fun, it's a neat feature!

Excellent, cheers for that.

One more question.

If you have say all torp doors open, does that affect your u-boats speed, or make any sounds that escorts can hear, or dosen't it affect anything?

There's a sound made in-game when torpedo doors are opening but I doubt the dvelopers went to the great detail of making it easier for surface vessels to pick up a Uboat.

Or maybe they did?

right click on the WO and turn the view up and there is a box with all the switches, only I would like them to have developed key strokes for everything, then I could have configured shoot 1.6.4 or whever the version is and just said what I wanted to be done-
