• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Problem GVP compilation (ATC Voicepack SDK)

Hello :)

I try to modify a little some wave from the USEnglishBig.gvp file.

After decompiled this file with "GVPDeco", I added some effects (with "GoldWave)to the wave files. But now, when I try to recompile them with "ATCVoice Pack SDK" (VPEdit), I've the following message, as soon as the software begin to write Wav files

I've the same number of files and folders, same properties (names, audio properties ...) for each file, except the weight, of course (a little heavier).

Stange, if I recompile without modifications, I've no problem.

What's wrong in my procedure ? Why this message "Visual C++", only when I add these effects ?
Anybody can help me ?

Thank you very much :)

As I wrote at FS.com, if you are replacing a .wav file with your own, or simply editing an existing .wav file, you are destroying the special "tokens and/or markers" that were added to the original .wav file by the editor ACES used.

This is one of the reasons why there have been no "new voices" added to the default sets. It is not the primary reason, which is sheer number of .wav files required, but still is a rather big stumbling block.
