FSHotSeat


Recommended Posts

Directed to hopefully Peter Dawson

Or can someone help me please, As a FSHotseat registered user, it does not appear that FSHotseat seem interested in producing a patch for FSX, I have been frantically trying to install the take off, fly bye and landing sounds into FSX.

Anyone who has FSHotseat will agree that these sounds are probably the best ever for AI aircraft there is, not only are these sound realistic, they have the ability to follow each AI Aircraft.

They make an Airport come alive.

This add-on was originally designed for FS2004, using Pete Dawson's FSUIPC, only he will know how this program works, it seems a crying shame to let these sounds die into the archive.

I'm Peter Dowson. Did you really mean me??

Does it need one? What is it doing which is specifically FS version dependent?

Into fSX? Where do they get installed in FS9, for instance? I don't quite follow. I thought FSHotSeat played its own sounds, not added them into FS's repetoire?

I don't know a Pete Dawson, but as Pete Dowson I certainly know nothing about FSHotSeat, but all about FSUIPC. I'm really not sure what you are asking of me. I have no idea what FSHotSeat needs which is FS version dependent. You will need to be more explicit please.

Regards

Pete

Hello Pete.

It was you I was after, I am sorry that I may have confused you a little, I am new on this forum, and didn’t know how to contact you.

Basically I have been trying to get FSHotSeat to work with its Take off Landing and Fly Bye sounds in FSX. I have traced most sound configurations relating to FSHotSeat and their respective sounds in FS9.

I just can not find a trace or link to the sounds and to the AI Aircraft other than it using your FSUIPC for it to work,I appreciate that you have no connection with FSHotSeat, but I would be extremly grateful if you could advise me to a way I can replicate these sounds in FSX.

This is "Pete Dowson's FS Modules" forum, as you can see from its name. Not "Pete Dawson" -- you only needed to see the name at the top to know you'd contact me here, without getting the name wrong of course ;-)

Are you saying that somehow FSHotSeat makes FS9 play the sounds? Are you sure? I don't know how it does that. Most programs which play sounds do so themselves, using WAV files or similar. Check the FSHotSeat folders, whatever, for the sound files.

Does FSHotSeat install any DLLs or Gauges into FS? If it needs such internal support for its actions, other than FSUIPC of course, then it will not work in FSX of course as the internals have changed considerably.

I am pretty sure that it will be only using FSUIPC to obtain the AI traffic details - their states, positions, and so on. It should then surely be simply playing the sounds as appropriate. The FSX version of FSUIPC (FSUIPC4) provides all of the same AI Traffic information as FSUIPC3 did for FS2004 and FS2002. It is compatible in all these matters.

I appreciate that you have no connection with FSHotSeat, but I would be extremly grateful if you could advise me to a way I can replicate these sounds in FSX.

I really know nothing about making sounds in FS -- there are no facilities in FSUIPC for creating sounds at all. There was a module called FSSounds.DLL or similar. Does it use that? If so you'd need someone to produce an FSX version of that module.

Regards

Pete
