• 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.

Sound Level in FSX is Way Too Low After Installing a Panel and Sound File

I had installed a DC-6 aircraft from Cal Classics. The aircraft also required a Panel and Sound file for it to work, and so I installed it. I launched FSX and loaded the DC-6 aircraft and about a minute afterwards, the sound all of a sudden dropped to about half the normal level. Even when I first launch FSX and the music starts, the music level is much lower than normal and even clicking on each of the selections do not sound near as loud as they did. I removed the DC-6 and panel / sound files and that did not make any difference. I also deleted the FSX.cfg and let it generate a new one and that did not make any difference. The problem is not in my speakers nor with any of it's settings in the Sound Settings. I can launch P3D and the sound level is just fine and I can also play music or videos on youtube and they sound just fine. So as I said, the problem is not with my Sound Settings nor with the speakers. It's within FSX. I can also go to the sound folder in FSX and play the UI music and the sound level is just fine. It's when I launch the simulator and run it is when the sound level is too low. Does anyone know what the problem is, and help me get it back at the level it should be.
