777 and ATC Sound Questions

Hi All...couple of questions:

Several of my 777's have obscured views when viewing from inside the cockpit. If I look out the left pilot's window, I see a wall. This problem also occurs in VC view. Is this a problem with the model? I've tried removing interior textures, but that does not help. What can be done about this? These are all Meljet versions of the 777.

Secondly, I can barely hear ATC; it's like somehow the volume has been turned down internally. What can be done about this? I have to play the volume extremely loud to hear ATC.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

See if this helps with the sound issue.

If you are using the num pad to see the cockpit then use the "+" and "-" to zoom in and out.

See if that works for you also.

Let us know how you do.

Thanks for the reply. I was able to make the necessary adjustments to hear ATC better. I did not realize that I had my engine sounds at like 100% and ATC at about 30%. I thought I had checked that.

The obscured cockpits are something else. I'm almost certain that after I upgraded my model they became obscured. I cruised over to Meljet.com and read that if panels display incorrectly that I should upgrade my video device drivers. Frankly, I don't think that's the problem, but I will check that. I was hoping someone else had the same issue. If I reduce the panel to zero using "w" then I can look all around without obstruction, but if the panel is displayed or I'm in VC and I look to my left I see a door and a partition. Weird. Great aircraft though so I fly them anyway. Wonder what the passengers would say if they knew the captain couldn't look to the left. Laughing

You'd be surprised what the change of drivers can do if your panels are blacked out especially if you have an NVIDIA card.

The passengers would say Help!

Thanks for all the suggestions; looks like I'll just have to keep those passengers on the edge of their seats because the new drivers did not address the issue. I'm fairly confident it is the aircraft model. It'll just take some time to sort out.

Thanks for your assistance. I get an email notification, so I'll check back when you have a chance to give an update.

This is the weirdest thing. In VC view, the cabin door is actually on the front left side of the screen rather than behind the flight deck as you would imagine. The view of the entire left side is blocked.

Ive d/loaded the paint job 777 and its OK
The trouble with Mel-jets is the virtual cabin is built into the model

Try deleting the penel folder and copy and paste the one from the default 777

I think this problem started when I applied the v2 patch a while back. I have found a GE and PW version without the obstruction. So I can use those to repair my GE and PW 777s. Removing the obstruction is as easy as removing the defective model. I just need to find a RR model that is not defective. Thanks for your help!
