Sound anomaly w/ Piper Archer II

Recommended Posts

The engine noise disappears when I look 90 degrees to the left, both in 2D and in VC modes. Any suggestions?

Just to rule out your speakers, check to make sure that you are getting sound from both the left and right speakers when you are looking forward. Check the speaker connections. Check to make sure that the speaker balance knob is set to center (if you have one). Check for a loose cable connection where the cable(s) go into the sound card.

>The engine noise disappears when I look 90 degrees to the >left, both in 2D and in VC modes. Any suggestions? By chance are you using a Turtle Beach "Montega II" sound card in WinXP? I had problems with the sound level changing in Win2000 with FS and CFS with that sound card so didn't run my Win2000 much. Going to 'W' view would change the level a lot. A month ago I found that if I changed the 'DirectX Sound Acceleration" down two notches from the max the problem pretty much disappeared. I think that's one setting above minimum. Now I had the sound probablem with all FS2K+ and CFS AC. But, it could be the DreamFleet Archer II, with that high detail VC takes system resources other AC don't. Regardless, try setting 'sound acceleration' down to the minimum to see if it helps. Then, set it as high as possible where it still works OK. DX Diagnosis lets you change the acceleration, I think it's available from Control Panel under the Sounds Settings also. At least in Win2K.Ron
