GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS:

ABSOLUTELY NO EXTRA ADDON IS NECESSARY TO PLAY THE SOUNDS.  

 

DEFINITION: This package is designed to add COPILOT VOICE and SOUNDS to most of the common aircraft in FSX ®. An identical version exists for FS2004 ®.

 

PREREQUISITE: you must be able to modify the panel.cfg files to install this package.

 

WHAT IT DOES: The gauges and sounds are included in the present package to add sounds to the switches and you will hear the clicks whenever you move them. The COPILOT reports the manoeuvering of devices, for exemple FLAPS, GEAR, etc... and tells CHECKLISTS. The GPWS system is also included.

Some sound packages recorded by English or American flight simmers are available free of charge in the file libraries of FLIGHTSIM and AVSIM.

 

FIRST REMARK: if you want to record your own sounds, YOU MUST ALWAYS KEEP EXACTLY THE SAME NAMES FOR THE .wav FILES!

SECOND REMARK: when initializing the panel, Flight Simulator checks that ALL FILES ARE PRESENT. IF ONLY ONE IS NOT PRESENT, the panel will not be loaded and Flight Simulator X will crash. FS2004 will display an error message.

The sounds start to be played about 10 seconds after the panel has been initialized - just the right amount of time for your co-pilot to get himself settled down comfortably in his armchair!

 

1 MOVING PARTS

All the noisy switches have sounds attached to them and you will hear the clicks whenever you move them. The list of these switches includes the parking brake, the flaps and the gear handle. You will also hear the famous CREW CALL, NO SMOKE and SEAT BELT signals at initialization.

 

2 COPILOT

You have a COPILOT with you and he informs you regularly about many important events during the flight. You will hear him speaking in your right speaker since he is seated at your right. What does he do?

1 - He reports the manoeuvring of the PARKING BRAKE , SPOILERS , FLAPS, GEAR POSITIONS and the AUTOPILOT switches. He calls out “ V1”, “VR” and “ V2” and “ Take Off ”, “ Landed ”.

REMARKS :

•  Most of the time, only the SET ON position of switches is confirmed to avoid playing a lot of SET OFF sounds simultaneously when one is set ON.

•  At initialization you will hear the famous “touuuuut!” you often hear in aircraft, to tell you the sound package is ready.

2 - He reminds you to set the ANTI ICE switches if you forget them before take off, and reports when the aircraft reaches 10000ft, 15000ft … and, finally, cruise altitude are reached.

3 - When requested to, he will recite the CHECKLISTS you ask for.

4 - The DIGITALIZED COCKPIT VOICE : alerts you when some incident occurs such as WINDSHEAR , or too deep PITCH , BANK ANGLE or GLIDESLOPE. You will also get FLAPS ALERT if you increase engine power while taxiing and your ground speed rises to more than 25 without the flaps being at least at the 10 position. In addition this voice will, during an approach, report when the altitude above ground is 2500 ft, 1000ft, 500ft, 400ft,….40ft, 20ft, 10ft and will end by saying “minimus” (depending on which minimum value you have selected).

5 - If a FS flightplan is active in the FMC, a 4 bells gong alerts you when you arrive less than four miles from the next WAYPOINT and a 1 bell gong sounds when the aircraft changes to the next waypoint and also when CRUISE ALTITUDE is reached.

6 - Of course, the Co-pilot also reports if any FAILURE occurs with ENGINES, PITOT, VACUUM, and other devices. In the case of the engines: he tells you, when an engine starts or stops, if any failure occurs and if the OIL TEMPERATURE is over 115.

 

3 BEACONS :

Passing an airport beacons results in 3, 2 or 1 bips, according to whether it is the OUTER , MEDIUM or INNER beacon.

 

4 GPWS

The GROUND POSITIONING WARNING SYSTEM is, of course, included and you will hear the digitalized voice telling 2500, 1000, 500,….50, 40, 20, 10. But you will never hear “10” in a 747, the cockpit is 17 feet  above the ground!

In fact, ALL AIRCRAFT are supported from the smaller to the big 4 engines jets. The only restriction is the flaps positions. The flaps positions are strictly depending on the aircraft. If you install the package in an aircraft other than the ones listed above, you will NOT hear the copilot saying the flaps positions and V1 VR V2. That's all !!! All other functions will be operating.

ON REQUEST WE CAN ADAPT THE PRODUCT TO OTHER AIRCRAFT.

6 SOUND LEVEL ADJUSTMENT AND CHCKLISTS

You can adjust the sound level using the small button and make play the checklists one by one:

 

7 SEVERAL SOUNDS PLAYED AT THE SAME TIME

In some particular and very few cases, several sounds are played all together simultaneously. This occurs when one only 1 keyboard command operates to modify several functions simultaneously. We will try to enhance this problem in future versions. By the way, move 1 switch at a time is recommanded.

English documentation is included in the package.
