Thank you I have the Spitfire sounding great in FSX now. After my initial success I'm thinking of the B17 & P47 sounds being brought up to the A2A standard however I do not know how to edit the soundai.cfg to effect these changes. So far I have done the following;
1. Copied the Spitfire sound to a new folder within the following folder (called SoundAI) as indicated here; FSX/SimObjects/Aircraft/SoundAI
2. Renamed the copied sound.cfg (in the copied Spitfire sound files) to soundai.cfg
3. Created a folder in the Wop3_Spitfire folder called SoundAI
4. Created the SoundAi.cfg within Wop3_Spitfire folder using this;
product_code = FSIM
This works ok.
That's a bit convoluted but if it works then stay with it.
I thought I would be able to just reference the original Spit sound folder but that would not work.
Now, as indicated above I wish to also hear the B17 or the Spitfire sounds when I fly the Spit. Is this possible?
I hope I canen't confused you so far.
Humm... I wonder why aliasing the Spitfire sound folder didn't work. In any case, what you can do for
the others is use the same approach that you just implemented for the Sptifire but first change the
"FSX/SimObjects/Aircraft/SoundAI" folder you now have to "FSX/SimObjects/Aircraft/Spitfire_SoundAI"
Then change the soundai.cfg entry in the Spitfire Soundai folder to read: alias=Spitfire_soundai
Then create soundai folders for the B17 abd P47 sounds (B17_Soundai, P47_Soundai) and copy over
the applicable sound files. Then create the "soundai" folder in each of those aircrafts' folders with
the approriate alias statements....alias=B17_Soundai, alias=P47_Soundai
On my system I jutt have the "alias=WoP2_b17g 91st BG\sound" for my B17G and that works.
You COULD try simply "alias=sound" for the soundai.cfg file entry without the aircraft name.
I THINK FSX would then just search the same directory (the current aircraft directory) for
a "sound" folder.
EDIT: Actually, just thinking about it, if you are going to duplicate the entire sound folder anyhow, you
might as well just keep it in the aircraft folder. Just copy the contents of the sound folder into a new "soundai" folder
then just rename the "sound.cfg" file "soundai.cfg".
