FS9 ATC Text

Recommended Posts

Hi people,A couple of weeks ago I think I saw on this very forum a topic regarding how to get FS9 ATC to display but only when they are communicating messages to you. When I fly some aircraft the engine noise is so imense that i cant here the ATC so I enable the ATc text but it gets annoying sometimes as I have lots of AI especially around London and the endless pop ups I get when they do not apply to me. Does anyone know how I can do this? I think If I remember correctly that it can be done with a tweak to the FS9.cfg, but cant find the thread now so am not sureThanks in advanceNick

Hi Paul, Thanks for your messageI have got the text disabled, but now I have tried another combination. I have the ATC text enabled but have the auto-open ATC wondow disabled. So now the ATC text does not display at all. One step forward! All i want to do now is to make it pop up when it displays ATC text which is directed to me but not for any other aircraft?

Yes thats how I had it to start with. Basically I want it like that but I want it to show the ATC text for my transmissions but not for all the other traffic. I thought that this would be possible somehow through the cfg if not FS menus but does not look like it is.

Bring up the Electronic Kneeboard with F10, drag to a position you like, select the radio icon (headset), all recent transmissions between you and atc are listed.As far as the standard transparent pop-up ATC transmissions, the setup Andy provided is the least offensive, and only pops up for comms between you and atc. Any other transmisssion to AI is heard over the radio...no popup.Hope this helps.

:(:(:(Does not look like we are getting very far hear! All I can get it to do is open and display for all traffic or none, was sure there was a topic recently about this, anyway must be mistaken, Thanks for your suggestions anyway!
