Version 2.1

To use ´Flaps´:

First unzip the contents somewhere temp.

Move the file Flaps.abl and WX-file in your x:\FS9\Flights\Flaps dir.
Move the *.wav files your gonna use in the x:\FS9\adv\wav dir of your FS-directory, or if there isn't one, create one
of your own.

/*--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
These files are not included. I don´t offer any support for the use of any wave files you´re going to use. You are on
your own here.
/*--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/

Depending on what file names you're going to use you may or may not alter the coding in Flaps.abl as follows.
Un-edited the Flaps.abl file uses the following names:

fl_1.wav
fl_10.wav
fl_15.wav
fl_2.wav
fl_20.wav
fl_25.wav
fl_30.wav
fl_40.wav
fl_5.wav
fl_rotate.wav
fl_up.wav
fl_V1.wav
fl_V2.wav

If you own other files there are 2 options open to you. Altering the coding in Flaps.abl into your filenames or just rename those
files of yours into the set mentioned above.

As you can see a Boeing 737 configuration. But you might wanna use it for other AC aswell. It doesn´t hurt :->

Last instructions Smile

Open up the FLT-file with notepad and the aircraft.cfg file of your choosing. In the flt-file search for '[Plane.0]
Aircraft=' just behind the equal sign fill out the title of your plane as is mentioned in the aircraft.cfg file somewhere where is says '[fltsim.x]
title=' ('x' stands for the number or zero that's mentioned there). It then will look something like this:

/*--------------------------------------------*/
[Plane.0]
Aircraft=B737-600 - KLM Virtual Cockpit/Cabin
/*--------------------------------------------*/

Save the flt-file. Copy FLT-file also in that x:\FS9\Flights\Flaps dir.

Now hit that FS9 button and select your Flights in the menu under 'Flaps ABL: Use Flap callouts by your captain.'

Afterwards you can save any other personally made flight of yourself and still enjoy ´Flaps´ as long as you can see this line in any
of your FLT-files: 'ABLScript = "Flaps" 'on the very top.

These sites contain some explanation about Microsoft´s (ABL Adventure Basic Language) based on C++. Very interesting stuff.

Addon: http://s41.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0IM5KOZZ53RZ12W31JVMN7EIFV

This is an addon that basically installs some callouts from the captain or first officer to the B737-600. I want to use this addon with the B737-800 so I can plan a flight from Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires.
The problem is that I don't understand how to installl it.
What does this mean?

To use ´Flaps´:

First unzip the contents somewhere temp.

Move the file Flaps.abl and WX-file in your x:\FS9\Flights\Flaps dir.
Move the *.wav files your gonna use in the x:\FS9\adv\wav dir of your FS-directory, or if there isn't one, create one
of your own.

Make a Flaps folder and place the .abl and WX-file into it then place it in to FS9/Flights dir. Move your WAV files to FS9/adv/wav

Not tried it, just a suggestion.

Thanks for that sylvan! 😉

Where's the FS9/adv/wav folder?
