How to remove scrolling message

What scrolling text messages? (Translation: there must be a way, 'cause I don't see 'em.) Look under Options > Settings, you'll find a menu for ATC. I think that's where I turned those off.R-(KSAT too)

Thanks Clarke and Ron.The scrolling text messages come from SB3. I have not setup voice mode in SB3, only text. The messages displayed in SB3's console are repeated in FS9's scrolling text. I just wondered if anyone knew of a way to get rid of the scrolling text messages via FS9.I guess this is something that SB3 should have an option for and I guess using voice mode would be one of those options.Thanks for the help guys. Ron are you RW at or around KSAT?Regards,

Leon Valley. R-EDIT to add: Have you tried what I said? Is it possible that the SB text is being routed through the FS9 ATC text channel? R-

Hi Clarke,Does that program from Peter remove the top right screen messages when you switch from VC to 2D cockpit or Spot?Those really bug me. Spot, Virtual Cockpit, Tower, Cockpit......?Also will it remove the Replay Message when using instant replay. That is my other peeve with this especiall when taking screenshots, I dislike having to crop those out, and the Pause key, I don't want any messages at all. At this point I should know what view I am in. :-)Thanks, :-)Joeaopa.gif" border="0" alt="Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]

HiQuick and dirty mod is addHideInfoText=1to the main(in square brackets) section of the fs9.cfg this will remove all messagesor you can use a program called resourcehacker and edit the language.dll in the main fs9 folder,removing the strings you dont want to show CheersMaV

Hi MaV,Just wanted to say thank you, that is exactly what I was looking for.Checked it out and they are all gone.Thanks again for posting that. I appreciate it.Regards,Joeaopa.gif" border="0" alt="Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]

Joe,You can also download ResHacker from http://www.users.on.net/johnson/resourcehacker/ and use it to edit language.dll in the main folder (what FS will display). This way you can still keep some of the info text if you want it while editing/deleting what you don't want. Some of the more common entries you may want to edit are in resources:2337 (Brake, Replay, Video Record, Zoom Settings),2339 (Stall, Overspeed, Slew),2340 (Sound Off),2341 (View Labels),2343 (Shift+Z info),2344 (Shift+Z info), and2345 (FPS Lock)I unfortunately haven't found a way to do away with specific scrolling text strings, so HideInfoText=1 may be exactly what you want.KevinEDIT: Oops, just reread your post MaV, and saw that you recommended ResHacker earlier. Sorry for the double-up. That little program definitely comes in handy...

Hi,I tried the HideInfoText=1 before but thanks for reminding it.The drawback I've found is that when you go to the menu view/options you get a black screen, sort of a bug I believe.

Np Glad it helped the only prob I had was shftz no longer works so Iended up editing out the dll file.If anybody wants an edited ver of the language.dll here is a link to my ver 99% of the messages have been removed,except the ones I find usefull :) back up the orig and then drop this on in the main fs9 folderhttp://members.optusnet.com.au/~au_mav/language.zipCheersMaV
