How to complete the instrument lesson 2 : ILS Approach

If you practice in flight Simulator X the Rob Machado's lessons, you'll find a bug on the Instrument lesson 2: ILS approach.

You just land on the runway and you think you have completed this lesson, when the instructor asks you to increase the throttle then interrupts the lesson. Although the objective of the lesson has been made to find land using the ILS, it is always frustrating to fail the lesson. Damned bug !!

This can be corrected by modifying a file used by this lesson.

- Find the folder Lessons\instr in the FSX installation folder

For example, C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Lessons\instr

- with notepad (or any other text editor ...) open the file Lesson 2.abl
- Find the line containing the text if (cpOffice.Marker <> 0) then

Be careful, there are other references to the text cpOffice.Marker <> 0. The right one is in the block
case CaseFinal2:
Writeln ("CaseFinal2");
Writeln (fn1Str1Num("Marker = ",cpOffice.Marker));
if (cpOffice.Marker <> 0) then
fnSQ_Play("I2-33"); // There's the middle marker captian
fnSQ_ChangeState(CaseFinal2_1);
fnSQ_Synchronize;
endif;
endcase;

- Replace this line by if ((VHFNAV1.DMEDistance <2.5) or (cpOffice.Marker <> 0)) then
- Save the file

You can now finish this lesson with all the compliments of the instructor.
