AirChief,If you haven't looked at the Mission SDK Overview you many want to check it out, it has some good info (See: Step 5: Record the Audio for the Mission). Here's the basics. You'll need to record your voice message using a wav recording app. WinXP has a basic one in the Start->Accessories->Entertainment folder call Sound Recorder. Record your message and save it. Next, place the recorded wav file into (Your Mission)sound folder. Open the mission xml file and add an xml tag , with the wav filename as the tag's content, to the appropriate DialogAction section. You should new hear your voice message when you see the text popup.Example:Create MissionIntro.wav using the WinXP sound recorder application.Place MissionInto.wav into the (FSX)MissionsMy Sample MissionsFirstSampleMissionSound folder.Add the following xml tag to the appropriate DialogAction section:MissionIntro.wavAudio format note from SDK:"Most sound files should be created as 22KHz mono wave (.wav) files. There is no point sampling at a higher rate as the sound engine will downsample any such files to 22KHz. MS-ADPCM compression is an option, but is not required. Typically audio content will sound better uncompressed, but this will use up about four times the storage space."Hope this helps.-Thad
