This question has been probably asked a couple of times but accindentally I have never come across the answer. How do you make Val rear gunner to open the canopy and point the guns not directly into the fuselage but outside? I know in all other bombers it is sychronized with undercarrige but it is fixed in Vals... Hitting <G> doesn't work.

there's a post at cfs2online's site...basically..you have to edit the config file to raise your landing gear..because the val's gear was fixed it was modeled so that 'G' wouldn't do anything..search for Val gear in the CFS2 general forum or designer forum

"val rear gunner fix"
After reading recent posts about fixed gear aircraft I was able to come up with a "fix" for the val's rear gunner not showing (thanks Gerrit for finding out about the fixed gear).
I changed the 11th and 12th values in the first 3 lines of the contact points in the Val's aircraft.cfg to 3.0
point.0=1, -22.80, 0.00, -2.35, 1600, 0, 0.25, 90.0, 0.30, 2.5, 0.90, 3.0, 3.0, 0
point.1=1, 1.55, -5.72, -7.30, 2200, 1, 1.25, 0.0, 0.50, 2.5, 0.79, 3.0, 3.0, 2
point.2=1, 1.55, 5.72, -7.30, 2200, 2, 1.25, 0.0, 0.50, 2.5, 0.79, 3.0, 3.0, 3

Now when you hit G (or whatever command you use to toggle landing gear)the gunner will pop out. Only problem is that the aircraft is treated as though it has retractable gear. Therefore you must remember to close the gunner's canopy before landing.

2. "RE: FIX - VAL Rear Gunner "
Joe,
looked at the changes.... and if you just change the values for point.0 (tail wheel) and keep the original values for points 1 & 2 you can open the rear gunner and still keep main fixed gear down.... Unfortunately this does retract your tailwheel but you can still land that puppy if your forget to toggle 'g' again..

Don't know if there's a better fix for this...best I could do...maybe someone can find a better solution

point.0=1, -22.80, 0.00, -2.35, 1600, 0, 0.25, 90.0, 0.30, 2.5, 0.90, 3.0, 3.0, 0
