Engine volume question

Post by RatherBFlyin » 06 Oct 2009, 14:41

Does anyone know if there is anything in the sound.cfg file that I can adjust to lower the volume on the aircraft engines? I downloaded the DC-8-30 sound files that we have for our Pan Am aircraft, and to say that they are loud doesn't even come close. I'm going to turn the FS engine volume setting all the way down for my next flight, but I was wondering if there was anything else I could do as well?

I'm no expert but I think the volume lies in the sound file itself and not the sound.cfg.

Criminy. So I would need to adjust the volume of each sound file? Forget that.

He's right, there's nothing in the CFG for volume. You're stuck with adjusting FS for this flight.
Open up an engine sound file for the HJG and one for a 767 or something and see if their volume really is different.
You could also ask the author for ideas.

Oh, I know the volume settings are different. I know the DC-8s were loud aircraft, but I cannot hear ATC at all (default or VATSIM) when I am using that aircraft. None of my other aircraft are anywhere near that loud.
