    Question Who is...? Need Sound Help!!

    Who is a good sound guy these days around here?

    I got a couple of sms files that don't want to behave for me, and I have ZERO ideas where to look first! Usually I use Anthony Wood's stuff and just drag/drop then copy/paste the correct named file to the correct line in the engine file.

    Please PM me if you think you can help!

    Regards,

    Are some of the sounds not working, or are the SMS files not being read? Check to make sure you didn't make any typos in the sound lines in the ENG files.

    Some sounds just aren't working. No typos that I'm aware of in the engine file sound lines.

    H Frank,
    Without seeing your actual .sms file, i doubt of anybody would be able to help as you have copy/pasted parts of other files.

    Cheers, Ged

    Ged,

    All files are in their original form.

    Hi Frank,
    If a patch hasn't been issued, sounds, as downloaded, will usually work. With respect, if some sounds can't be heard, the first check, if you're using MSTS, is the OPTIONS > SOUND setting - make sure the slider is set on HIGH. If that is OK, maybe some .wav files can't be found - many sound sets use some of the sounds from MSTS default locos.

    Cheers,
    Ged

    I'm using OpenRails and it's specific to some engines and not all.

    Hi Frank,
    Thanks - in that case, I think more specific information is required. What locos? What sounds are missing?
    I'm not a sound guru by any stretch of the imagination, but am a programmer who has a little knowledge of how aliasing works!

    Given the same locos and sounds you are using, anybody should be able to reproduce your specific problems, providing everything has been installed according to the appropriate readme instructions, The only exception I can think of, off-hand, is that it's something specific to OR, like if the locos use .eng files in the OpenRails folder, which have not been updated with the correct .sms file/s.

    Cheers,
    Ged

    If you're using OpenRails make sure the 'Logging' tick box to the left of the 'Start' button is checked. Run the loco with the problem in OR then close OR. Then open and read the OpenRailsLog.txt file (normally located on your desktop).

    Check for any errors referencing SMS or WAV files and that will tell you which files can not be found.

    Cheers,

    Marek.
