the horn resides in your sound file (assuming you are not aliased) copy your new horn files into the directory, delete the old ones and rename the new files to match the old. Got it?

I have a similiar problem; whenever I try to change a horn in sound file it doesn't work. Lets say if I delete the original gp38 horn and that x_gp horn thing. I then copy and paste a different horn from another file and rename it the same as the originals. Then when I go to test it; it will stiil play the original horn files. What am I doing wrong?

If it still plays the original horn, your SMS file is pointing somewhere else, probably one of the default locomotives such as the GP-38, etc. You can use wordpad to edit the SMS file to point somewhere else, ie. "common sounds" or back to the individual sound file.
Maybe someday I can bribe Stuart with 10 grand US to write a sound management system tutorial.

I have spent the last two hours screwing around with trying to change the sound on the "Scotsman" from that tweety bird thing to a longbell. I wanted to do this so the mikado had another whistle. Now, seeing how the scotman is a default engine where would there be somethimg else to point to other than the 2 default whistle files? Or am I missing something here?
What happens when I replace the sound files is that the first whistle s some kind of mix of the 2 different types and then any other whistle blasts issue no sound at all.
I am starting to get really ticked and then to top it all off I did a rookie move and deleted the original "Scots" whistle.

Maybe you could go into your .SMS files (in Notepad, for example), click on "Edit" and look for "horn" or "whistle" or whatever they chose to call it, and see if all the entries match the file you want it to sound like.
