Pilot Avatar won't change



  • Hi,

    Really enjoying flying the Arrow III, and for the most part it's working great. But I have yet to figure out how to change the pilot avatar, it's always the middle-aged guy in the sweater regardless of what I've tried. I've even changed the aircraft.cfg to "Pilot_Female_Casual" rather than male, but so far no dice. I've just switched the pilot attach nodes, because the copilot shows up as the avatar I selected in MSFS, but I get the feeling that won't help either. I know Asobo has presented a moving target in this regard, just wondering if anyone has done anything that has succeeded?

    Thanks!

    It should work OK if you leave the cfg values as supplied and make sure to select the same avatar for both pilot and co-pilot - https://support.justflight.com/support/solutions/articles/17000115313-co-pilot-views



  • Hi, can confirm that I am having the same issue as jsbrewster1... and have been unable to fix it. Raised a ticket earlier.
    I can get the middle-aged guy in the sweater to speak with a female voice though if I select a female avatar in the MSFS menus 😉

    ... absolutely love flying the Arrow - thanks JF team!

  • Hi,

    So I just tried again after installing 0.7.0, which reset the aircraft.cfg, and it's the same behavior. I set both the pilot and copilot to Pilot 2 and I see the guy in the sweater. So I exited the program, swapped the Pilot and Copilot attach nodes, and re-entered, and still the same. It's a very minor gripe, but one I'd really like to figure out.

    Thanks!
