Like many others out there, I have the wonderful Captain Sim Legendary 727 add-on.....
I love this add-on... BUT >>>>>>>
I have never manged to get the VOICE panel to work (the recordings of the Captain, First Officer and Flight Attendent)... when I press the buttons on the Voice Panel Pop-up, there is no sound....
The version I have is actually FS2002 btu came with am 'Update' on blank CDR, so maybe this is the issue....
IS THERE A SETTING I NEED TO CHANGE TO HEAR THESE ??
Thanks for any help y'all !
Haven't flown the Legendary very often (I'm really a taildragger) - still learning -but each time I have, I get all the sounds - starting with the female voice 'Welcome aboard.....etc'>. Followed by 'take off checks' and 'after take off checks' and even get a voice warning when I'm getting too low ' Ho Up'!!! Haven't attempted to do a real landing and don't use ATC often. These are all accompanied by a red text copy at the top of the screen. Do you get this text??
I have not clicked, selected. squeezed or even ignored anything I recognise as a Voice Panel.
Mine is also for FS2002 with the Upgrade CD.
Only thing I can suggest is the Settings/Sound/Cockpit level - have you checked that it is selected and has a medium volume level?
I'll try that, thanks Dave....
I'll also try unintalling and installing from fresh as something may have gone wrong...
Further - have a look at the PDF System Manual page 3 under 'Check and Set Voice Crew Package' - might help
That was me above - forgot to sign in
Sorry Kid, I can't say that has ever been a problem with my 727. However, if you have any ideas regarding how to get the main door to open...please past it along. All I have ever been able to do is open the front windows.
Me too Kurt !!
It's annoying to fly from London - Greenland in this beast and only be able to open a window when I get there ! (How do I get my cargo out!)..... 80 Russian Refridgerators and 400 microwaves can't go through that window !
I'm going to try a re-install tonight to try an get the voice panel working!
Hi Again - The key strokes to open the cargo doors are actuallu the DragWheel and Wingsfold keys in fs9. You will have to go into FS9 Settings/Assignments and check that they are listed - Dragwheel is usually assigned but you may have to assign the Shift] key - simple enough to do - here's proof -
- not bad for an OAP
DAVE C - WHAT A STAR !!!
I (and I know a few others) have been trying to get the doors open for weeks !!
This months 'Simmer of the month' award goes to Dave C for me !
Also, last night I uninstalled 727 and then re-installed - it seemed I hadn't done the FS2004 patch correctly first time because it works fine now !!
The dialogue between the Captain and the GROUND crew is cool ! More add-ons should include some voice stuff like this - it's good fun !
THANKS FOR THE HELP Y'ALL !
Shush - your making me blush
I have had so much help from the flyaway forum that I am only too pleased to help when I can - only been a simmer for 6 months but I have a fair bit of experience in PC's - so I should, as I'll be celebrating the 50th anniversary of my 29th birthday in a couple of years time.
By the way - I am still waiting on a response from contacts-software re the EET Cub - sales advised me that they had passed it to the tech support team - that was 10 days ago!!!
Happy flying and now you can rid of these 80 Russian fridges
Cheers Dave, (from just down the road in Geordieland)...
If I'm as knowledgeable on PCs when I'm an OAP, then roll on 65... !
I flew the 727 from Gatwick - Greenland last night (Godthab Airport, on the South West Coast of Greenland)... a surprisingly short flight at around 4 hours... when you consider Greenland ain't a million miles from Canada ! It was my first flight with the Voice Panel working so I was having some fun (knocking a few years off my age!)....
On approach to Godthab, I was greeted with the fact that Greenland hasn't yet gotten into ILS, so I took the bird down by hand, and made what has probably been my finest 727 landing to date.... I've been bringing her in at about 160kts in the past - far too fast, this time I got the speed down to 130kts for the last 1000 feet, for a nice smooth touchdown.
Right - Off to Kamchatka next with those 'fridges !
Thanx for the info Dave!!! Cheers for the USA!
Hey I just quickly saw this before hitting the sack. Does Shf+F or SHF+T work for you dorrs? Just asking. Forgive me if it is a mute thing.
Keep'm dirty side down.
(By the way, as a reminder, the shf T and, F have to be configured in FS9. They normally open the aux doors of Jets. Again, for give me if this is a mute point that has been investigated.
I've now got all of the 727 doors working - I used the above posting from Dave and I assigned CTRL + F8, and CTRL + F7 for 2 of the doors (wide side door, and FAB rear ramp! ..... and Shift + E opens the window, with Shift + E2 opening the final door.
Just had to assign the descriptions given in Dave's posting.
