    Question Need help with the VirtualCol ATR-42/72!!!

    Hello all users of the Virtualcol ATR's, I just got it but really don't know how to open the other exits to make it work with GSX. I've tried Shift+E+2, and so on, as well as the doors buttons on the overhead, but they aren't clickable. I haven't found any other panel that specializes in this either! So basically how do you open all of the doors? Any info would be great!

    Sincerely, Larry

    AFAIK on some of the other Virtualcol models (like the Embraers) these doors do not open either, they are not even modeled. Only main exit and cargo doors.

    You may be looking for a function that is not even there.

    I have one of the planes somewhere (Dornier jet) and will give it a try later. The thing was so bad, I pretty much buried it.

    Edit: and that one has only two doors as well, check the "[EXIT]" section in the aircraft.cfg

    You can tell GSX that there is only those two doors, and it will work.

    Hello,
    I got the problem with ATR 42 aprroach using ILS. I mean I use APP button on A/P panel. Looks that the plane misses ILS vertical slope. It starts landing after that and usually touches the ground behind the runway. Other planes approach and land correctly.
    I attache files with sample profile of approach.
    On the second picture I show three black lines: the left is the point switching on app, the center is the point when plane starts descending, the right switching off a/p and taking manual control.
    What can I do with this?

    I have become more and more disappointed with Virtualcol as time goes on. I have a main cargo door on an ATR-42 that will not close, gauges with needles that are off to the side, planes that bounce so bad when taxiing they "crash" and bounce so bad when flying they are uncontrollable.

    so i went where you said in [exit] on aircraft cfg. and she said there were 2 exits and I already pressed shift + e + 2 shift + e + 3 and 4 and it didn't work

    You press 'Shift + E' together, then LET GO, and THEN you press 1, 2, etc.
