Hi Ben,

I hope you survived Bradford.
Nexxt go back to \\SimObjects\Airplanes\DMFS Shared Files\BAC 1-11 Panel VC and open DM_1-11_sound.ini in notepad or similar and make sure it looks like this...

CODE: SELECT ALL
[Config]
MaxSounds=8
ErrorFlag= -1
LvarStop=DM SOUND STOP
VolumeVar=dsd_xml_sound_volume
ResetVolumeVar=1

[Sounds]
Sound00=./Aircraft/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/ALERT.wav
Sound01=./Aircraft/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/BEEP.wav
Sound02=./Aircraft/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/FIRE.wav
Sound03=./Aircraft/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/HORN.wav
Sound04=./Aircraft/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/STALL.wav
Sound05=./Aircraft/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/SPEED.wav
Sound06=./Aircraft/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/VOICE_V1.wav
Sound07=./Aircraft/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/VOICE_VR.wav

[LVars]
Lvar00=DM SOUND ALERT
Lvar01=DM SOUND BEEP
Lvar02=DM SOUND FIRE
Lvar03=DM SOUND HORN
Lvar04=DM SOUND STALL
Lvar05=DM SOUND SPEED
Lvar06=DM SOUND V1
Lvar07=DM SOUND VR
Would this need altering to SimObjects/Airplanes etc if that's where I have them?

Hi Mate,

Sorry for the confusion. Copied it from an old file. it should read...

ResetVolumeVar=1

[Sounds]
Sound00=./Airplanes/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/ALERT.wav

Sound04=./Airplanes/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/STALL.wav
Sound05=./Airplanes/DMFS Shared Files/BAC 1-11 Panel VC/SPEED.wav

Lvar02=DM SOUND FIRE
Lvar03=DM SOUND HORN
Lvar04=DM SOUND STALL
Lvar05=DM SOUND SPEED
Lvar06=DM SOUND V1
Lvar07=DM SOUND VR
You shouldn't need the SimObjects bit as you have the ./ before "airplanes" :)

Thanks,

Still not working. I've done exactly as you've said but when selecting and loading the aircraft I get an error message saying;

Config file not found:
C:Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\DMFS Shared Files\BAC1-11 Panel VC\DM_1-11_sound.ini

Using Default:
C:Microsoft Flight Simulator X\GAUGES\dsd_fsx_xml_sound.ini


It is where it's looking, I can see it, so why no joy?? :wall:

Hi Paul,

Have you definitely done the first step by modifying the panel.cfg?

"gauge32=dsd_fsx_xml_sound!sound, 2,2,5,5,.\SimObject\Airplanes\DMFS Shared Files\BAC 1-11 Panel VC\DM_1-11_sound.ini"

Spotted the problem Paul, and it was my cockup. the line of code in panel.cfg from my copy and paste says "gauge32=dsd_fsx_xml_sound!sound, 2,2,5,5,.\SimObject\Airplanes\DMFS Shared Files\BAC 1-11 Panel VC\DM_1-11_sound.ini"

it should say...

"gauge32=dsd_fsx_xml_sound!sound, 2,2,5,5,.\SimObjects\Airplanes\DMFS Shared Files\BAC 1-11 Panel VC\DM_1-11_sound.ini"

Ah ha! :welldone:

Do you know, I'd reckoned to check all the text to look for typos etc- the perils of cut and paste. I'll try that, hopefully all sorted.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Paul :thumbsup:

Sorry- still limited success- do I remove the existing dsd file- the one that's not FSX?

:wall:

Thanks,

Not sure I'm following Paul. Which dsd files do you have in which location?

Sorry; I'm as clear as mud!

Ok, I had to out the dsd_fsx_xml_sound.gau in the Panle VC folder.
There's the original in there which is dsd_xml_sound3.gau
Does that stay?

Everything's fine except I don't get the in-cockpit sounds, V1 VR, overspeed, Alt alert etc. the engines and externals are fine.

Paul :thumbsup:
