View Full Version : No ATC Sounds after re-format
05-16-2002, 02:09 PM
Hello To All,
I have a problem with not being able to hear any ATC at all. The slider is maxed and I can hear all the other sounds (engines, flaps etc.). I have searched through the forum and came across an instance where someone had the same problem and it was suggested that he looked in the FS2002 Tips section and he solved the problem. But I can't see the solution he found.
Can anyone help? I am eager to fly after re-formatting the HD the other day...

Make sure that on the panel the com1 link on the radio stack is ticked on....thats all I can think of...

...and you are tuned to an active ATC frq (?)

Oh yeah, I made sure the obvious oversights were checked before I made this request for help. Thanks for replying, though I still am having problems and I just don't know what could be happening. COM is checked and I am tuning according to ATC instructions but to no avail....

Make sure you have two very large files in your fs2002\sound folder with *.gvp extension.

I am having the exact same problem too! However, I found out that, when there is ATC dialog going on, if I toggle the sound OFF and then Back ON ('Q'), when sound comes back on, for a very brief moment (half a sec.) I hear the ATC loud and clear, then it fades away and off as the other sounds come on.(?) I tried taking ALL the other sounds off and leaving ATC alone, no change. What's up with that!?. Thanks to all the previous kind replies, they didn't hit the problem yet. Erwin

Yeah, I see the frustration but that was not a problem I had, just couldn't hear it (ATC) period. It turned after wasting a day, that I simply installed the wrong drivers for my soundcard. I used the Windows 95/Nt 4 Disk instead of WIN2000/ME !!! #####, I really said that publicly ???
I wish I could add some insight to what has already been mentioned throughout these posts.

Well, after reviewing all the posts regarding this problem, I want to save you some of the digging around in about 5 different posts on the issue. (Which it's more frequent that we think!) For some, the problem was down right to old sound drivers (well, maybe not real old, just not new enough) for their sound cards.
Others needed a windows component in the sound section of windows, namely 'Codec' stuff. I am sorry I can't explain here what a 'Codec' is, you will have to find out that one for your self, but whatever it is, make sure that you have 'sound compression' enabled. Then now if all else fail (like in my case) try the bizzare! ... Don't ask me why, just be glad it works alright? Would you believe I changed the PC speakers from the 'speakers out' connector to the 'line out' connector, that is all! and IT WORKED! I am now Sooo Happily annoyed by ATCs :) the sound card/game controller, is a: PCI CMI8738/C3DX by C-Media(?) sorry can't be more specific, this computer was a gift. But my gift to you is, try this, and I hope it works for you, if it does, please drop me a line, here or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
