Looking for the lost Speedbird

Recommended Posts

Guest Raymond

I installed the new 800 900 and then downloaded British Airways. However FS9's ATC seems to not recognize Speedbird. I had the same problem with BA and Ready For Pushback's 747. I cured that with some forum help by going into the the 747's config file and changing Speedbird to Speed bird. Works fine now with the 747. I went to the 900's config file and they too had atc_airline_Speedbird and I changed it to Speed Bird....no help. PMDG also indicates they feel it has something to do with voice packs what ever they are.Any help would be appreciated.Raymond

Hi Raymond,One of two things you got to do to fix this problem:(1) I notice that your syntax for "ATC AIRLINE" is an underscore " _ " not an equal sign as it should be; so that line should read -" ATC_AIRLINE=SPEED BIRD ".(2) The voicepacks you're talking about is EDIT VOICEPACK, which is a free program you can download from AVSIM. Just do a search for it. It stores voice enunciations for all the airlines and needs to be updated from time to time via an internet connection. You also need to UPDATE voicepacks from the file menu of edit voicepack (I believe) after you have added or made changes to it.Hope this helps....for I'd hate to see your SpeedBird lose its Speed! :))John
