• 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.

FSX Sound Files and FXE

Arno, I'm very intrigued by this program. It's simple and brilliant. I am successful in building an FX file calling on a sfx_day, and sfx_night .wav file I created, and they perform in the sim great, but only when Loop is set to "True", which they then overlap, and play both day and night. If I set to "false", and try to enter the effectParams, the sounds do not occur. I've been over the SDK PDF several times but am confused. The instruction is for constructing an XML file, which I understand, but in FXE, in the left pane where you make entries, the build looks similar to a CFG file. Would you be able to provide me with an example of a configuration for 2 wave files, one to happen during the day, and one to happen during the night, from May until November just so I can understand better? Thank you.

Hi,

I must say I don't know a lot about making FX files with sounds, I have never done that before. Hopefully somebody else can help you.
 
I just discovered that, with the correct use of spaces, semi-colons, and commas, in the effectParams section, it works! A small glitch is that the sound files are not on time, maybe up to an hour off schedule, but they do begin to play. Cheers!
