FS2004 Is it Possible?

#2
Even with the Electric power off??? I will refer to the HJG DC8 sounds that have that 400MHZ sound on when the aircraft is powered up. But not when it is cold and dark. I can't think of (off the top of my head) a sound set that would have say the GPU sound running in the backgound with it started up, with out battery power on. Just thinking out loud though.

Yes, you can specify a sound file in the aircraft's sound.cfg file that will play whenever the aircraft's master battery is turned on:

[GYRO_SOUND]
filename=mybackgroundsound.wav
flags=0
viewpoint=1
initial_volume=9003
minimum_volume=3003
maximum_volume=9003

Thanks Bill, I'll try that out.
I'm having another problem which perhaps you could help me with.
In the a/c sound.cfg there are various [combustion]'s and [jet whine]'s. i'm having real trouble identifying one or a group that I want to replace as I have a good recorded sample of forward compressor noise as heard from the cockpit at full throttle. i've played around with FS Sound Studio and there I get exactly what I want to hear but transferred to the a/c I get strange results.
What I'm after is that sound attached to the throttle so that one hears the compressors spooling up.
Hope you can point me in the right direction.

Unfortunately Bill, all I get is the sound of silence. With or without the battery switch on/off.

Got your suggestion working now!!
Though strangely the sound seems to be linked to the Engine volume slider in the sim!
But if you could throw some light on my other query I'd be very grateful.

Honestly I'm not going to be much help here as the "sound system" remains nearly as much a mystery to me as the "flight dynamics engine" is...

For example, I can't for the life of me figure out why the darn "ground roll" sounds sometimes play continuously on aircraft reload, even though the a/c is cold, dark, and parked! :mad:

To have a sound automatically start up when an a/c and panel are loaded into the sim. In effect a permanent sound.

Yes you can through an effect that is linked to a startup sound,all you need to do is add a nav light in the [LIGHTS] heading in the aircraft.cfg.
You will need the appropiate effect and sound file,this is my Airbus300

[LIGHTS]
//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing
light.0=3, -12.63, -73.43, 5.545, fx_navredm ,
light.1=3, -12.63, 73.43, 5.545, fx_navgrem ,
light.2=3, -87.38, 0.00, 8.610, fx_navwhih ,
light.3=2, -12.63, -73.43, 5.545, fx_strobeh ,
light.4=2, -12.63, 73.43, 5.545, fx_strobeh ,
light.5=1, 15.264, 0.00, 11.435, fx_beaconh ,
light.6=1, 15.264, 0.00, -7.309, fx_beaconh ,
light.7 = 1, 0, 0, 0, fx_TS_LJet ,

Light7 is the new light, fx_TS_Ljet is the name of the Effect.

I originally done this for AI aircraft, but it works in a default aircraft,as soon as you load the aircraft in the sim you hear the aircraft startup sound if thats what you want to acheive? please note it will only play 1 one single sound file,so don't expect it to play for 4 engines.
Let me know, I will try and upload the effect for you

Yes, and very easily.

Add one additional engine jet whine sound and set it's parameters to always play regardless of engine RPM.

such as

[JET_WHINE.1.10]
filename=AMBIENT_NOISE
flags=0
viewpoint=1
rparams=0.0000,1.00,1.0000,1.00
vparams=0.0000,100.00,1.0000,100.00



This sound loops no matter what, where, or how the aircraft is configured. (except viewpoint)
