Sound issues for Alphasim Victor - No.2 Engine

Recommended Posts

I posted up in another thread regarding the fact that the cockpit noise is for the main part just a loud roar. One recommendation is to purchase FS sound studio to facilitate altering the sound cfg file.

 

My current budget precludes me from doing that yet. However, the culprit seems to be the No.2 engine.

 

I can get Handley Page's finest to start cold & dark (relatively) by using the default Cessna initially then switching aircraft.

 

If I start the engines individually I get normal responses from 1, 3 & 4 in whatever order I start them. Once I start No.2 it unleashes the full roar into the cockpit, almost drowning out anything else. I can barely hear ATC etc.

 

Could the issue be coded into a gauge somewhere?

 

Could anyone take a look at the sound.cfg file to see if there's anything untoward?

Any ideas? Why doesn't the sound.cfg use 4 engines? Is it because the sim can get away with 2 rather than 4?

I have found a partial solution. I altered the number of engines to 4 and the sound is less pronounced.

If you want to experiment with a new sound package, try the Avro Vulcan.  I have this aircraft and

 

the engines sound is spot on!   http://simviation.com/fs2004military69.htm  9th download on the page.

 

You don't need to fly this aircraft if you don't want to, just borrow the sound folder.

Thanks Charlie, I'll check it out.

 

Sound editing software may do the trick, but I'm averse to buying any just yet ;)  I couldn't justify it for one aircraft, as much as I love the Victor.
