The engine sound issue of the A3XX Professional

Recommended Posts

I tried loading the 330 directly from the scenario screen like you mentioned using both cold and dark and the default turn-around state. Still, if starting the engines the proper way, I get no shutdown sounds at my destination. Starting them using Control +E and I get shutdown sounds at destination. Although this leads to weird looping start-up sounds. I also don't always get full start-up sounds for the APU. Sometimes they work. Other times I'll start it, switch to external view, and nothing until its fully operational and then boom, the running APU sound pops on out of nowhere. Absolutely ridiculous.

Hey guys,

 

As promised, I've continued to dig into the Airbus sounds.  I found something which may well help with this issue.  Please see my post (link below).  Please get back to me here in this thread to let me know if it makes a difference.

 

Many thanks, and sorry for the long delay.

Hello Dave, no worries. Thanks for the suggestion. I can report that I tried the 16 bit change and it did not make a difference.

 

Take care.

Either in your sound software (like RealTek) or failing that in Windows Sound.

OK. Currently in the A330 now doing a long-haul for my VA but I'll try and make this change for the next flight and report back.

Just to add this, the small buses have this issue too :(

To add something (doent know if this makes any difference)

If I load the Aircraft with TAXI or Take Off state where the engines are already running, the shutdown sound is not always cut.

 

From my 10 tests, the shutdown sound was cut 4 times and if you try to start the engines again, the sound was always cut :-S Weird thing. (Test was done with A321 CFM)

Are there any findings on that topic so far?

I checked my videos and about 6 month ago, I ddn't had this problem ( I know this is not helpful but anyway, I said it now: :P)

And we all continue to meander around this problem with no answer for years... seriously?!
 

I own Aerosoft Extended A318-A321, A330 Professional, and 318-321 Professional and the engine shutdown sound disappearing has haunted me across three different computers and two different sims.  We're paying a lot of money to use this software and small instances such as this one completely pull you out of a pretty immersive and realistic experience.

 

Just because a few developers are "not" experiencing the bug does not AT ALL negate the fact that this isn't the only thread on this forum that exists in regards to this specific issue that users thoroughly explain in detail (some have even made enough of an effort to include videos of this bug) and the developers time and time again dismiss the problem with the awful "we don't experience that here, so we will now close the topic."

 

Enough with the condescending dismissal and blatant ignorance towards paying customers who want their money's worth.  Do your jobs.  Reading these forums and seeing the same thing time and time again is getting very old.  All the way up to you included, Mr. Kok.

 

Enough with the games, look into the issue.  After all, the development team was able to create the software from scratch but can't locate something this small?  One of two things is happening 1.) The development team is incredibly lazy.  or 2.) Nobody is looking into it, but we are being told otherwise.

 

I am certain it is instance number #2.

 

Enough.  Give us our money's worth; fix the problem and give us a patch.  This game is getting ridiculous.

Very tough words Kolja,  some also understandable but anyway back to more productive topics.

 

I did more tests on that cause this is really annoying me on each flight.

It looks like that the Aircraft Shutdown Sound is just working 1 time on each time the aircraft is loaded.

 

On all tests, I restarted the Sim.

 

Test 1 - State: Cold and Dark

After loading the Aircraft you hear some sounds inlcuding the shutdown sound.

I did a normal engine start, was taxiing some meters and than did the shutdown. No sound.

 

Test 2 - No DEF State loaded (as the aircraft is loaded after a fresh installation)

 

Was taxiing some meters and did the shutdown again.

Shutdown sound was working.

 

At this point I thought that probably the State has something to do with the Shutdown sound and I started the Engines again, was taxiing again some meters and did the Shutdown again. No Shutdown sound was loaded.

 

Test 3 - No DEF State loaded (as the aircraft is loaded after a fresh reinstallation)

Restarted the Sim, loaded the Aircraft again, some meters taxiing and shuting down the engines. Sound was working.

 

So my conclusion on that is, that the engine shutdown sound is just playing 1 time on every Aircraft load (execpt States where the Sound is already playing at the AC load) for an unknown reason.

I think it would also working with the C&D State, if the sound woldn't play directly after loading the Aircraft, dont know.

 

Some reasearch also showed, that in Nov. 2019 it was working fine without isses for me.

I changed 2 things during the last month, the P3D v4 version from HF2 to HF3 and installed all the Airbus Updates which where released after this time. (I have no idea which version was current in Nov 2019 so that i am able to test that version).

 

If AS can provide me the Version which was current in Nov. 2019 I can do some more tests with the older versions too.

 

FInal words, I am really interested to find out what is causing this really annoying, strange effect.

 

Cheers!

Bernd,

 

Hi, thank you for this amazing response.  While my delivery could have been lighter in tone, it's certainly disappointing to have to see users dig into this issue themselves rather than the developers whose one of many main tasks is to approach these issues with the intent of fixing them, rather than the snarky dismissal we've seen time and time again.

 

So please help me with this, because I am going to do some experimenting myself now:

 

I have come to notice the same thing you have.  My default load state is turn-around.  Upon loading into the sim, the engines do indeed play the shutdown sound.  I have not experimented with this enough to recall any instance where the sound worked once again in the scenario.  The bug here seems to be as you stated: the shutdown sound will only play once in every scenario.

 

It seems to be whenever a user loads into a scenario that involves a panel state with the engines turned off, the load-in itself sadly hijacks that one and only opportunity to hear the sound played as the engines somehow are loaded in the start position for a brief moment, before turning off.

 

I was able to counteract this issue in P3D V3 with the Extended version simply by pressing "Q" on my keyboard two times immediately before cutting the engines.  This solved the problem.  In V4.4, however, it does not.

 

It is in my truest belief that this issue has to be within the heart of either these three files: aircraft.cfg, panel.cfg, or, sound.cfg.

 

The problem is not re-writing them; I would have no issue doing that - I've been doing it for years.  The issue rests here: "where does one start in finding the origin?"

 

I was able to re-write the Quality Wings 757 .cfg (I don't remember which one specifically - it was years ago) and was able to load into a scenario with the engines completely turned off; no shutdown sound was played upon load in.  I am hoping to achieve the same outcome with this issue, though the files are a bit more complex to work with...

 

If you wouldn't mind sharing with me what panel state you load into to help fix my problem, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks for you speed reply!

 

My best,

Kolja

The values are set to zero, which we know means "off."  But the conclusion I am making here is that somehow, if it is this specific chain of code that is our culprit, why does it paradoxically not appear to be the issue, given all the binary data here is written as "0" which we again, know means "off."

 

There is more:

It seems that even with the binary value saved as "0" on every line of code within this file (assuming this is the one causing our issue), why does the sim very briefly read every line in this file as a "1"  value for those quick 5 seconds that practically every system on the airplane up and including to the engines are on and functioning until quickly shutting down?  If the source of THAT issue can be allocated, then the parent problem we've been discussing can be completely eradicated and we can finally get our shutdown sounds working normally as they should.

 

PDMG, Captain Sim, FSLabs, Quality Wings, Wilco, BlackBox, and countless other programs I've used as aircraft addons can effectively load a cold and dark state without having all the systems running and on for a couple seconds before THEN shutting down.  Bear in mind that the skeleton in terms of the code and .cfg files for all these makes and models are somewhat the same, so if everybody else can do it to excellency, then there is no reason nor excuse as to why Aerosoft can't do it.  But for now, it's sadly up to the users to track down this issue themselves until we see a developer get up and do what they're supposed to do. 

 

Thanks again for your help!

UPDATE:

 

So for the past two days, I have endlessly tried to solve this problem from the inside-out.  Working with new sound drivers, disconnecting and reconnecting the audio card, updating its drivers, re-writing the code, uninstalling and reinstalling both P3D V4 and the Aerosoft A320 Professional to absolutely no avail.

 

The reason I write this is to further convey my disappointment with the Aerosoft development team.  This specific issue roots all the way back to Aerosoft Extended  and if we go back and look at those forums, the "assistance" is blatantly rude and condescending and attempts to tackle this manner in the most unproductive of ways possible; almost as if we're a burden and inconvenience for asking questions in a forum specifically placed here for us to ask questions...

 

It's not my job to tell others how or when to do their jobs, but as a paying customer who's purchased more than what I listed a few comments ago from Aerosoft, I am absolutely entitled and will comment on the disgraceful levels of "assistance" and attitude towards other customers that I've witnessed and the minimal effort to address issues I have seen from the development team (case-in-point: the only person to respond to my first message was a user).

 

Mr. Kok, on a personal note, if you're reading this, I'd like you to re-evaluate how you talk to your customers.  You may not notice it, but as somebody whose viewed countless different topics and threads that you are a part of just for the interest of it, your tone and in the way you speak to your customers leaves me shaking my head and in utter disgust sometimes.  How customers continue to keep giving you and your development team money and how you are still in-charge of this charade is mind-boggling.

 

At the end of the day, this isn't about me not having my shutdown sounds.  It's about the complete lack of respect we receive as paying customers.  The way we see the development team speak to customers with questions, the way we see the head of this circus speaking to customers...  I recommend you all take a course on hospitality and humanities, maybe it will help...

 

I am an extremely level headed individual who firmly believes that kindness and respect wins an individual anything they want in this world.  That being said... when somebody crosses me or I see unwarranted levels of disrespect towards others, I will absolutely call you out on the parasite you are.  I will no longer be giving Aerosoft a single dime of my hard earned money from this day forth.  I don't care if the issues get fixed or not.  This team should learn more about respect and customer service from those over at development teams like Quality Wings and Captain Sim: among the nicest and most helpful teams I have ever had to deal with.

 

To all at Aerosoft: please learn the human principles of respect.  Farewell.

You probably know more about the sound in our aircraft than any of our developers. In fact, I've asked direct questions of our developers regarding sound and I have never once received a single answer.

 

The developers don't really monitor the forums, that's up to people like me.  If we get questions that we can't answer then we go to them.  If they won't or can't answer then we can't answer you, parasites that we are.

 

I found that the Airbus seems to be using some internal sound system which modifies sounds.  I havne't found the bloody thing yet, but I'm working on it.  Our developers must not know anything about it.

 

So, as you walk away, just know that some of us have tried.

I will continue my searching :D

 

The really strange thing what i just right now found out, I have 0 issue in the A330 but all the ASC files are compared and the same as in the A32x

I'm aware. I can only guess its the separate sound engine but I'm not able to access it yet.

I just disabled the ASC.cfg and the ASC.dll which I guess contains the internal sound system.

Shutdown sound wasn't playing either.

Did more tests:

  • version 1.2.0.4 same (what surpises me)
  • P3D version 4.5.12 same

 

It makes me crazy :D

I would honestly stop messing about with it, and give me time to work with the Boss and TSS on this.  I suspect that TSS did everything and we just created the paths to the sound files. Something is certainly amiss, I have several bug reports in for sounds.

 

I'll tell you this though.  Aerosoft, along with other developers, has been put through the wringer with P3Dv4, especially P3Dv5 and of course MSFS.  I have a list of every change made on the Airbus Professional and it's been brutal.  Moreover, not one customer has ever been charged for any of this work the lads are doing, and Mathijs is the guy holding it all together.  Compared to the issues we've been dealing with, small sound issues while important, in the big scheme of things they don't rank up there with other matters the boss has been working. 

 

This coming week will be very full for Mathijs, but I'll try to get up with him late in the week and see what we can do about these sound issues.  I'll ask him to post here after we've spoken.

Don't know if this is related but when I start the A330 the proper way using the ENG Start switch and then the master switches, my VA ACARS program shows some oddities. I start with Engine 1, and it comes up and running as normal and this is noted in my VA ACARS program.  Once stabilized, I begin the start sequence for Engine 2. When I do this, the ACARS program records that Engine 2 is ON, then it shows Engine 2 OFF, then it shows Engine 2 ON again.

 

So if shutdown sounds are only getting triggered once, maybe something is broken in the formal start sequence coding. When I start the engines using the CTRL+E work-around mentioned previously in this thread, my ACARS program records Engine 1 ON, then Engine 2 ON with no Engine OFF note in between and I will later get the shutdown sounds at my destination. Listed below is how the ACARS program recorded my engine starts and the corresponding times.

 

Time:

12:58:31 Engine 1 is on

12:59:23 Engine 2 is on

12:59:23 Engine 2 is OFF

12:59:23 Engine 2 is on

 

Engine 2 later stabilizes appropriately.  So, no clue if this is related to the triggering of shutdown sounds but I figured I'd post it in case it is.

There was a post about this same thing sometime last year or maybe the year before.  It's here in the forum, maybe search for ACARS?  I'd do it for you, but I'm reinstalling Windows and everything else right now.
