I found this just out today, I haven't had a chance to try it out.

File Description:
Hear altitude callouts - (from your trusty co-pilot) - at 400, 300, 200, 100, 50, 40, 30, 20 and 10 feet above the runway. This can be easily done to virtually any aircraft. You may already have the necessary FPDA sound and gauge files but if not, they are included.

Thanks RadarMan. I have been using pmSounds until now. It is REALLY good with all the cockpit/GPWS calls. I have downloaded the one that you suggested.
I'll give'r a go.

Feed altitude_callout.zip into/start/ search on your computer or just altitude and you can find it.
Then drag it onto your desktop and open it there.

roadster,
Download Firefox but don't make it your "Default" browser.
Only use it when you want to download something from a "troublesome" site.
Let us know how you do.

Well I went to my other computer and went to avsim and downloaded it and it did just what it was suppose to do. Then e-mailed it to this computer and detacted the file. I must have something blocked somewhere. Thats the only site that seems to give me a problem. Now come the BIG thing Me trying to change something in a file like the instructions say. Do want to thank you for all your help.

Yes, that's being resourceful! 👏 Back door, I like that!

Now you have to keep downloading it until you figure out where it's going, if anywhere.

I don't think so, here are the installation instructions.
*****************************

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Altitude callouts (by your trusty co-pilot) at 400, 300, 200, 100, 50, 40, 30, 20 and 10 feet above the runway.

You may already have the sound (.wav) files and you may already have the single gauge file.

Gauge and .wav files by FPDA.

Copy and paste the 9 .wav files to your sound directory.

Copy and paste the fpda_boeing_callout.gau to your gauges directory.

NOTE: You may already have these items - probably from the installation of another aircraft.

Then simply open the panel.cfg file of the aircraft you wish to enhance with altitude callouts.

Insert the following line (replace the xx with the next available gauge number) in the appropriate spot.

gaugeXX=FPDA_Boeing_Callout, 10, 100

See Panel.cfg info.txt for an example using the default b737-400 panel.

The next time you land that aircraft, your co-pilot will keep you posted on the altitude!

This will work in virtually any panel for any aircraft.

NOTE: FPDA also has a set of sound files and gauges for the Airbus - check your sound and gauge directories.

If you are using an AIRBUS panel, you will have to alter any reference to fpda_a320_callout.gau, and/or fpda_a330_callout.gau if you wish to try the boeing callout sound files.

I personally think the boeing wav files sound better.

Enjoy

THis is a very useful addon. I know that some of the addon downloads have that file already on them.

Guest

Is anyone else finding that when you use it in the default 777, the 20-feet call-out is given just as your touching down? Can anything be done to fix this?

Paul R Guest

I have the same problem with the 777.

ndstune Guest

I guess it's given in cockpit altitude, which maight actually be 20ft at touchdown...

Paul R Guest

Isn't there any way to make the touchdown occur at 0 ft ? Some messing with the files, I don't know. I noticed it happens also with the (POSKY) 747.
