  1. Hello Its often a matter of adjusting your other sound settings. For instance if your engine/environment settings are also very high,reduce them right down. Leave your ATC at 100 if that's what you want.n When you next start your sim (your engine/environment sounds will be very low)adjust your main volume(leave the volume controls within the sim that you have adjusted as I describe above alone) via keyboard or on your speakers or both ,turn right up so the engines are at a decent level and you should find your ATC is much louder(can be to loud sometimes) Andy
  2. Now it's very interesting that this topic has come up.Last night the same thing happened to me. And guess what....it was just as you describe I had my ATh turned on whilst on ground. And me a long time simmer OH the shame! Andy PS as soon as I disconnected the autothrottle ,'ordinary' throttle control resumed. My excuse...I was using the Alain Capt panel(md11) which is fairly complex and I've not used in ages. Uh hum!
  3. Yes I recognise this glitchet . I don't have any PMDG product's ,but I do have posky 777s and there VC. If zoomed out to far switches etc become unclickable. Cheers Andy.
  4. I would like to. But I don't no how to. Cheers Andy
  5. Hello If select the Menu option from the home page ,I get the menu options OK ,but the home page partially bleeds through those menu options. It doesn't prevent you selecting options ,but it looks very poor. Andy
  6. Also when you have toggled as mentioned above, go to 'views' and uncheck full screen option. This will ensure that when you next start up you will be in windowed mode ,and your aircraft will be visible in all there glory in the selection screen. You can also deselect open in full screen mode via your fs9 cfg as well . Andy
  7. Got it Jim. Thanks a lot. Cheer's Andy
  8. If you know were the FL has gone ,please let us know. Cheers HWs OK I get it.Sites up the jibbly at the moment. A.
  9. Thanks for your thoughts guys. Thanks John for explanation of how FSnav does some of its business. As I am a bear of very little brain I will ignore any attempt to fiddle with it. Cheers Andy
  10. Already on my way to addiction Ian. I bought a new PC about six months ago ,and for the first time in ten years or so I can run add-on airports as smoothly as the defaults and some of these are tremendous. However!!! I am having one or two problems i.e. In FSNav for instance I may get dual runways or runways marked as ILS equipped in FSNav but as not in FS9 itself ,this sort of thing .One addon displays a runway as present in FSNav but it is in fact a taxiway. These issues are minor irritant's rather than anything major ,so not a real worry, but it would be nice not to have them . Anyways cheers Andy Jim! Thanks my add-ons are already above the defaults. PS most of my new add-on airports run without the for mentioned issues .Which is good.
  11. Hello If i install freeware airport sceneries, should i disable the default equivalents.? Cheers Andy
  12. Very sad news. I hope Tom got to read all the messages posted here by members ,and took some comfort from them. I know that we can sometimes be an argumentative and hot headed bunch , but a lot of warmth and kindness was expressed in those posts ,a lot of decency and the noble side of what it is to be human was shown. Goodbye Tom. Andrew.
  13. None! But did build an airfix beaufighter that melted after it was left on top of a living room heater. Droopy rockets I seem to remember was one outcome. Cheers Flightless Andy
  14. Blimey Ian yours is a sorry tale. I wish I could help. The only thing I can suggest is you boot into safe mode (if you can with these newer OS) and try an install of FS from there. Hope you get it sorted soon. Cheers Andy
  15. Excellent ! cheers from up here to you down there. Andy
