P3Dv4.1 - Endless gear-down sound

Recommended Posts

Every time I lower the landing gear with LM 4.1 I'm getting the usual rumbling sound - the problem is that the sound never stops!
Is this a known issue? Any fix?

I have the same feeling, but I'm not sure whether it is the sound of the gear extending or the sound of the extended gear in the wind that makes that noise.

Some sounds get stuck... press the Q key twice to unstick them.

Are you using it, or no? It may not have been phrased in the form of a full sentence, but I think the question itself was quite clear. A simple yes or no would've sufficed, even if you clarified with "I'm not sure if you're asking if I'm using FSUIPC or not, but yes" (or no, as appropriate). Simply typing two question marks is about as effective as not even answering, and is therefore a wasted exchange, in a medium that is already pretty slow.

From your post "FSUIPC?" I could not deduce your intended question, sorry. I thought that you positively need FSUIPC to have the 777 functioning, so this interpretation was not very apparent to me.

Yes, I use FSUIPC, the registered version.

Remove the FSUIPC.ini from the modules folder temporarily and check to see if the issue resolves.

Cool - let us know how it goes. If it's not that, then it may be a panel state issue, but we'll cross those bridges as we get to them.

Okay, I just did some testing with a "clean" FSUIPC.ini and compared it to my own ini.file.
In order to do the test for clearer hearing I switched off the packs. 
The result of the sound theme is the same for both ini. versions.

The problem is with PMDG. The "roll" sound from the landing gear do actually stop - however the sound of the gears wind resistance that takes over just afterwards is way too loud and almost in the same frequency as the lowering gear sound. Therefore the two different sounds simply melts into one, leading to the wrong impression that the gear sound goes on for ever.

Thank you for testing it out. I also think it's supposed to be the "wind on gear strut" what we hear which *seems* to be quite loud. I have zero experience though how loud it is in reality. We can btw adjust different sound levels in the menu (CDU).
