I have a problem. I'm downloading jet aircraft into FS9 and FSX. Many times after doing so, when I fire it up and click on fly away, I get a Cessna 172 prop sound coming from my MD-11. I check the sound folder in said aircraft - it says 737-400 - but thats no jet whine coming from that aircraft! It doesn't matter where I download from - Mike Stone, FlightSim, et al. It happens in both civilian and military, FS9 and FSX. The one constant in all of this is the prop sound is the same in all of the errant downloaded jets. It doesn't happen in all my downloads, but enough to be annoying. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
Hi, this is usually a problem with the sound cfg not being aliased correctly
e.g to alias an aircraft to the PMDG sound it should look like this
but if it looked like this
then there would be either no sound on the aircraft i wanted to use or it would default to the Cessna sound.
Another reason could be that the sound line in the aircraft cfg could be pointing to something else
e.g it may look like this from the Captain Sim 757
title=Captain Sim 757-200 0
ui_type=Boeing 757-200 PW
If it does have anything after "=" on the sound line then delete whatever is there and try that.
Hope this helps!
