    alias sound

    what is the best letters and or numbers to alias sound ?
    I have a few downloaded engines that have the wrong aliasing and darn it I've forgot how to do this simple thing.

    There is no best, the alias MUST point to a sound set somewhere.

        Definitely easy to forget.
        I've also used "..//..//etc" for the alias set up, and works okay for me.
        I have noticed either is used and works fine.

          Dfter all, this time spent working on MSTS to fix or modding you would expect that a person could do this simple thing.
          Shawn: I've used that way also .
          I thank all who have helped in the past A little miss in punctuation and Bamm errors funny that.
          Anyway all are fixed ,these engines are for OR so thank you again.

            With all of the stuff we tip onto the head, something has to fall out the other end, I only have a limited capacity!

              Hi,
              While on the subject of aliasing, may I mention that you will occasionally see a single '../' used instead of '..//' or '..\\'. The important point is that MSTS doesn't accept a single back-slash ('..\') as a path separator, but, strangely, will display them when showing a path!

              The readme for my MSTS_Check utility has an Appendix describing aliasing, for those interested
              Caveat : It does require updating on some details but should give a general idea.

              Cheers,
              Ged

                Ged, I will read all I can get my old hands-on, my great-grandson is in trains, so MSTS is a good start(before watching real trains) we live on the Mojave sub and see UP and NSF all day every day very cool for a train guy.
