That nagging voice!

Recommended Posts

      OK, back in my private sanctuary planning on a little quality time with a new plane, a Carenado Phenom 100. Everything is going good, figuring out the glass cockpit (new stuff for me) it's got a few bugs but seems to work OK for someone with my limited experience. Now I get this thing in the air and I'm starting to really like it and then suddenly, just like anything pretty with curves, it starts nagging at me!  Now I know these audible warnings are part of the new glass cockpits but don't they usually put a gag button in the cockpit somewhere to silence this and if so, maybe someone would be kind enough to point it out to me?!

                                                                                                                                                 Many thanks,

                                                                                                                                                 Randy Lusk

" just like anything pretty with curves, it starts nagging at me"

 

lol

 

There are probably a few ways of turning these off.  Usually in the aircraft.cfg you can easily find a section that has the warnings and are usually easy to turn off by putting the // (two forward slashes) in front of the lines in the cfg.  Or, look in the sound folder for the sound files that are usually named with the warning it shouts, and change those file name endings to something other than ".wav".  I think commonly ".bak" is a good ending to use when turning something off.

I suppose you could learn how to fly, that should shut the nagging Bi@@@ up  :p0504:

Hi guys,

 

Just on a similar vein to this thread... I was recently flying an ILS approach downwind to establish base leg at 2300 feet abeam the airfield, when 'the nagging voice' perks up "check gear, check gear, check gear". I assume she thought I was about to land but it seemed very premature. Can anyone advise please?

 

And then later as I was established on the LOC she started again... "Glideslope, glideslope" and on and on. Once again I assume this was because I wasn't actually on the glide yet?

 

I couldn't find any data in the manuals and its the first time I've heard these.

Thanks -

Nige

On the "check gear" issue I can't find any .wav that says that in either of the Carenado sound folders.

 

P100Glidescope.wav is in the "<Main Sim Directory>\sound\Carenado\CarSoundP100" folder and was the first thing I turned off. I believe if the glidescope bug is more than one tickmark high or low of spot on the .wav starts whining.

Now you've prompted me to the obvious :rolleyes: I do in fact have a P100_GearWarn.wav in my Caranado sound files, so that answers that. And interesting you found the same issue with the glideslope warning, and sounds like you turned it off. Can I ask how you do that please?

Hi Nige,

 

P100Glidescope.wav.off.

 

I must have really not like the gear warning sound and deleted it.
