PMDG 777 P3DV4 no approaching runway sounds

Recommended Posts

For the locked PMDG 777 version. I have the boxes checked, the volume at the highest level, I hear the other callouts such as on the ground taxing onto the runway the voice tells me approaching X. But on landing when approaching the runway I do not hear "approaching runway X"

I also am hearing weird "caution short runway" on regular sized runways. Taking off Anchorage runway 33 and approaching runway 25L at Hong Kong I heard "caution short runway" both times. I have the Addon Organizer and run the latest makerunways. Thanks - David Lee

On the RAAS options menu, you sure you don't have that approaching runway X call unhecked?

Are Ancorage and HK default airports or 3rd party.

Sometimes 3rd party developers do non standard things.  Make Runways just creates the database based off of what it reads.

I have landed at many different airports but all addons and none give me the "approaching runway X". I have that box checked. I noticed landing flap is set to 3 is that correct? And takeoff flap to 1 in the raas options.

Let me double check with my RAAS programmer to see the conditions are to trigger that callout.

I get that call, so I'm not sure what you're missing.

These are the triggers:

In the air:

1. Must be within 22.5 degrees of the runway on the  runway heading.

2. Be between 750 and 300 feet above the runway.

3. Lateral distance from runway centerline:  runway width plus 200 feet.

I have the AP engaged on the ils so I should meet those requirements. Very strange. I had all the callouts in the fsx version. This p3dv4 version is not playing the approaching runway sound for me.

Which airport are you landing at and which runway?

Is it default or 3rd party?

Every airport I have landed at, none are default. Orbx PANC. Fsdreamteam KLAX and KMEM. Taxigate VHHH. Every addon airport this happens.

I am using the 777 freighter could that be different for some reason? I'll try the 777-300ER soon if I have time to fly again. I also uninstalled the Microsoft Access spanish database installation and installed the English version. Could that have caused it?

The Microsoft Access Database is the same (Spanish or English makes no difference).

Freighter should make no difference.

Try it at a default airport just to see what happens.

I asked some of my testers if they could reproduce this issue.

They said it works fine for them.

So I'm not sure what's happening in your case.

Yes, looks good.

Did you try the latest version of Make Runways?

I apologize after all it was not your great addon. I was almost out of ideas so I deleted the ARPT_RWY dat file the PMDG aircrafts create and now I get approaching runways. Yes I do have the latest version of makerunways but something corrupted the dat file. Thank you for the support.
