Ever since I've got FSX I hv faced this aircraft sound problem. The problem is there is no rumbling sound when the engines are in idle mode which I think is wrong. Only when I push the throttle up to 70% I start hearing the engine sound.
I also went into the sound controls in FSX and pushed up all sliders to 100% but result is the same.
Any of u face the same problem??? Please let me know.
Actually I get excellent surround sound, with my Sound Blaster card and Logitech X530 speakers (not expensive).
Maybe you need to update your sound card drivers.
On amazon you can get a perfectly good soundcard for £3.99 - I am using it with my logitech x-540 speakers and it works and sounds great, far better than my onboard sound. Search 5.1 sound card on amazon.co.uk and you will find it.
But do ya guys get it even when the engines are idle?
Thats the biggest point!!!
Everything, if the aircraft is so equipped.
FSX is optimized for surround sound also so my rear speakers get a workout when the aircraft has a good sound set.
Hard to believe but one of the best set of sounds in the Trike, I get good sound from the rear.
You have to have a good card also.
Actually I never bothered about buying a sound card. Its the one which comes Intel onboard. I guess its called realtek!!!
Nothing extraordinary though but OK for day to day use. I play on Creative 2.1 speakers. I hv a subwoofer.
