Your missing quite a few files in 2, 5 and 10. You should have at least 1134 files in each of those folders. The extra file in each folder is a txt file containing the name of the controller.

Appreciate the vectors. I figured out what had happened after the last posts. I had removed folders 2,5,and 10 in their entirety quite a while ago to remove certain accents. When I updated the waves with the new update file it created partial folders, do the program was trying to access files in the folders that ere not their.Restoring them from a Winwood backup folder I had created fixed them. I assume you can still remove complete folders if you do not want certain accents when you fly ina particular region?Thanks,Dean

remove all the files from 2, 5, and 10 again, and they won't be candidates for play next time.if there is any files in a folder, i assume there are controller wavs there to play. when you loaded the rcv31 wav updates, it placed new wavs in 2, 5, and 10. it didn't know you didn't want themthen as soon as it was time to play 2, the wavs that needed to be played weren't there, but there were files. so you heard dead airjd

JD,Isn't there still an issue if directories are deleted randomly?I thought RC checks which directories are in place, if /2 is gone there should be no controllers. If /5 is gone, then the cycle stops at /4, etc. So if /6 through /10 are there with /5 gone, they're ignored.

i think i changed it in v4.i believe you are right, in v3, the controller directories need to be consecutive.so if you delete 5, then you will only hear controllers 2, 3, and 4. good catch!jd
