Referencing sound components

Recommended Posts

Hello all,Is it possible to reference sounds from several different aircraft? As in, I'd like to have a Lear external startup sound, but a B737 internal startup sound?Basically, is this possible:In Sound.cfg,(STARTER)filename=B737_400soundxban2tviewpoint=1link=xstarter(XSTARTER)filename=Lear45soundlan2strtviewpoint=2Misho

While I don't believe that is a valid syntax/usage, the only way to be sure would be to try it out......which you can easily do... ;)

Hi Bill,I did try it, but no bannanas :)I tried all other syntax forms that could come to mind, quotes, double slashes, still nothing.Just thought someone stumbled on this, as I can't believe MS would not put a support for this, it seems so obvious...Thanks anyway,Misho

Why not just copy the sound you want from the aircraft you want into the sound folder of the aircraft you are using the sounds on???Seems much easier to me.Steve

Yes it does, but repetition is never an elegant solution. Also, if at some point I want to distribute aircraft, it would make for a far smaller download package.BTW - you can do this type of referencing for bitmaps in panel.cfg. That is why I am bewildered why it isn't possible to do this for sounds.Misho
