Hidee hodee everybodee,Has anyone been able to resolve the challenge (no such things as problems) of getting sound out of the great gauge by a real gentleman Mr.Glenn Copeland called Altitude Alerter. I have tried all areas of the forums search etc., and I have redirected the sound file.ini to every possible variation to my limited knowledge. Gauge does the amber flash,flash,flash but no sound. Any thoughts or solutions.God Bless,Rusty aka greatdragon

Somehow I suspect you must have missed or misinterpreted a step in the installation procedure.I just installed it on the default Lear45 as per Glenn's instructions and it worked perfectly.There is no need to move the ini file anywhere - the entire folder named AltAlerterGau_2 goes into your default gauges folder as does the file named AltAlert_dsd_xml_sound3.gau.Then adding the two lines to the panel.cfg as Glen directs should make it all work.Edit added: I used the Copy and Paste method for the two lines which are added to the panel.cfg so I was sure there would be no critical typo's.Hope that helps.

Dear OPA,Nice to see you back. Did you have a good few days break? Now to my challenge. After reading your post I went into the files and did an install "by the numbers" in the default Lear as you explained. I also did a reinstall again by the numbers watching everything Glenn had instructed on my fav bird. I also went back over the search posts that I had found where Glenn had said that it was possible the gauge couldn't find the sound file so try redirecting it.All of that done I am at the point of amber flash-flash-flash at specified altitudes but no sound alert at all. Did a completely clean install on Cessna. No go!I have FS9\gauges\AltAlerterGau_2\AltAlert_sound.ini AltitudeAlerter 1.wav AltitudeAlerter 2.xml AltitudeAlerter_bg2.bmp AltAlert_dsd_xml_sound3.gau. is inside the gauges folder. So now, as you had immediate success I am in dilemma. Any thoughts?Yours in SimmingGod Bless, Rusty aka greatdragon

both the .ini and .gau files should be in the same folder. And, you should have in your panel.cfg a gauge reference pointing to it.For example I have in my panel.cfggauge67=dsd_xml_sound3!dsd_xml_sound3, 2,2,5,5,.\Aircraft\DMFS Shared Files\Vickers VC10and in the Aircraft\DMFS Shared Files\Vickers VC10 folderDM_VC10_sound.inidsd_xml_sound3.gaualso look in your sound.ini file and check whether the sound is in there and correctly listed.you should have a list of .wav filesfollowed by their LVars

[sounds]Sound24=./Aircraft/DMFS Shared Files/Vickers VC10 Panel/BAsafetyx.wav[LVars]Lvar24=Sound_BAsafety

The LVar appears in your xml gauge.check that the max sound number has not been exceeded. If so change it!!!!vololiberista

vololiberista,Many thanks for your input. However, I have checked and double checked and tripled checked that the sequences, .ini lines, folders and contents are as the authour of the gauge intended. Alas no sound. I followed your folder info (to suit my install) and it all checks out . Still no sound.My sound for this gauge reads:[Config]MaxSounds=1ErrorFlag= 0LvarStop=dsd_stop_sounds[LVars]Lvar00=AltAlert_PlaySound[sounds]Sound00=./Gauges/AltAlerterGau_2/AltitudeAlerter1.wav, 100Thank you anyway for your thoughts.God Bless,Rusty aka greatdragon.
