aircraft.cfg file?

i knew i seen this before somewhere, now ive found it again,

Note that VRC just creates the multiplayer session and fills it with the aircraft that you see on your scope. It's up to you to configure FS9 with an appropriate viewpoint of the airport. A good way to do this is to modify the aircraft.cfg file for an aircraft that you never fly, such as the default C182 or C172. Within that file you'll find a setting called eyepoint. Set the last value on that line to an appropriate height for your tower.

 

how can i get to this file so i can modify it the way i need to?

ive done a search and cant locate it. can anyone help?

thanks

go to your FS 9 director

 

ie: C:/PROGRAMFILES/MICROSOFT GAMES/FS9/AIRCRAFT/C182

 

there you will find the C182 folder with files, and the one you want is aircraft.cfg.

 

search for views and then adjust as stated with the vrc manual, changing the height will depend on what airport your setting it up for

thanks david, well where do i start with this? i had a stack of help late into last nite to do this and what a cock_up that was!,, i only changed one option and all hell broke lose!fs9 kept crashing then telling me files where missing even though i hadnt deleted anything and i was following everything step by step,

this all started when i hit my windows key so i could return to my desktop to get back into vrc???? i do it all the time why should it mess up now?

 

 

ive just had to un/reinstall fs9,

can i just give a big UP to richard keen who albeit unsuccessfully helped me but sat fot two hours anyway helping me

cheers richard and an emails on its way anyway. cheers

If you still need to edit your .cfg file, I'd recommend this little number. I'm not too great with technical things, and I didn;t want to edit one of my aircraft configuration files incase i made a dogs dinner of it. So I used ATC Tower Viewer. Just need to load it up like you would do an aircraft and then slew it into position (where the Tower is at the airport) then connect up to the multiplayer game.
