RC dropping out

Recommended Posts

During the last 6 flights Radar contact has dropped out 4 times-just before I am handed off to tower for landing clearance or just before I am told to turn to intercept the glide slope.It happened twice at Den and once at DFW and once at CVG.Thanks for any advice anyone can offer.Richard

Please tell us how many files you have in each folder (2 - 12). JD suspects you may be missing some files. Also what other programs do you have running in the background besides your flight sim programs?

Actually I do not have a folder name 13 in Winwwod..I am guessing this is the problem!Richard

13 is just an additional controller we made available. It would only cause a problem if you had fewer than the required files in that folder. I doubt adding it would fix your problem.

Well I am not running anything during my flight in fact I "kill all" to help with fps before starting RC & MSFS.Would you suggest that I just re-install?Thanks

The symptoms you describe point to missing wav files. Please tell us how many files you have in winwood folders 2 - 12.

I used to see the same kind of thing, but only when running saved flights. Since performing a clean reinstall of Windows XP, I have not again experienced this situation.Hope this helps,Sandy

JD,Since there are no updates for 13, not having it is fine.Plus it was only added recently.

Since the others are concentrating on wavs, let me make clear you are saying RC is locking up completely. It's not just a not-hearing-anything problem.Make sure you have the most recent FSUIPC from Pete Dowson's page:http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.htmlSee is that helps.

What version of RC are you running? How much memory does your machine have? Your file counts are okay.What flight planner did you use to create your flight plan? Please send me your flight plan (rick@jdtllc.com). I'll fly it and see if I get the same response.
