can someone please help me. i downloaded this aircraft and extracted it to my aircraft folder, but when i went to fly it it is missing all the guages. i know i'm missing something here or didn't do something right. i also tried to drop the guages in the guages folder, but that didn't work either. when downloaded and extracted to a temp folder i get three folders and two dat files. the folders i get are aircraft, guages and modules. any help appreciated.

Make sure that you copy the contents of the Gauges folder (not the folder)you downloaded, to the the FS9 Gauges folder. If you did copy the Gauges (downloaded)folder en bloc to the FS9 Gauges folder then you should have a Gauges sub folder in the FS9 Gauges folder with the same contents as the Downloaded folder. I suggest you delete this sub folder but only if it is a duplicate of the Gauges file you downloaded - although it wont do any harm if you leave it in there.
If this doesn't work - let me know the name of the zip file you downloaded and where you downloaded it - I'll have a look.
Hope this helps.

i just copied and pasted the contents of the guages folder into the fs9 guages folder and now have guages, but i thought this aircraft had a virtual cockpit also. i'm looking into that right now. here's where i got this plane: https://flyawaysimulation.com/downloads/files/301/fs2004-air-labrador-dhc6-300-twin-otter/

Had a look at your download source and the blurb does not specifically state that a VC is included which usually means that it is not.
There are several Dash 6's with VC available at avsim .com - go into File Library and Search under FS2004 aircraft for Twin Otter but watch out as some are textures/repaints only.
Best of Luck
Dave
