• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FS2004 Doug Dawson XML Sound and Repeating Sounds

Hello all,

Simple question, I want to know if it is possible to create repeating (i.e., not looping, but playing multiple times in rapid succession) sounds using DD's XML sound gauge. The way the gauge currently works, as I understand it, is that if a sound is currently playing, that same sound cannot be played again until it completes playing.

An example of where this might be useful is for turning dials on an autopilot panel, where the sound of the digits rolling might play several times in very rapid succession for each individual change of the displayed number as the user turns the dial rapidly.

I have an alternative method that works okay but results in an excess of sound effects, which is to play one sound when the dial is turned, and also play a separate sound file that is actually the exact same sound effect any time the number displayed on the counter when the dial is turned is divisible by 2. This results in a pretty good approximation of the effect I want, but results in excess code and sound files that I would like to avoid if possible.
