FSX Twin Comanche – how to change engine time

Though the real aircraft has had a substantial overhaul, there is still quite a bit of hours on the Twin Comanche’s engines. Unfortunately, the engines are set to zero by default in the FSX version. Want to change that? Here’s how…

First, you need to make sure you are able to see hidden folders. That’s pretty easy to do. Simply go to My Computer, select Tools, then Folder Options…. Next select the View tab, and look for a radio button that says "Show hidden files and folders" and select it. Now press the Apply button and you’re all set.

Okay, so you can see all folders on your computer. Now navigate to the following path: "C:\Documents and Settings\{your logon here}\Application Data\Microsoft\FSX\SimObjects\Eaglesoft Twin Comanche 1.5". The {your logon here} is usually the name you use to sign on to Windows.

The only file you’ll find there is the state.cfg file which defines the engine times for each engine. Here’s the values that I’m using which are pretty close to what Roy’s got on the real N204WT:

[engine.0]
accumulated_time=427.1
[engine.1]
accumulated_time=429.6

Engine.0 represents the left engine, and engine.1 is the right engine.

Have fun!
