P3D PE ATIS sound fading (tried fixes)

P3D PE ATIS sound fading (tried fixes)

Postby bjratchf » Thu Mar 28, 2019 6:34 am

I found a few of the posts about when PE Atis conflicts with the automated in-simulator ATIS. I've set my communications tab in my sound properties to "do nothing" and in simulator, the "voice" slider is turned down to 0% and unchecked.

What is happening is when I tune to ATIS, I'll hear the pilotedge ATIS broadcast momentarily at a normal volume, and as soon as the scrolling text appears with the "in sim ATIS"- the voice voice gets muffled to barely audible. If I go to the settings menu, the PE ATIS voice returns to a normal volume. Is there anything else I can do to completely kill the internal P3D atc/ATIS?

Happened again today...

Tuned into BUR ATIS while trying the CAT 8- the ATIS broadcast and controller simultaneously went to almost mute. I double checked that "communications" tab to make sure the button "do nothing" was checked "when windows detects communications activity"

When I turn the ATIS back off (stop monitoring COM 2), the volume returns to normal.

Go to that 'Communications' tab, if it is checked, uncheck it by selecting something else, and 'Apply' that other setting, then reselect 'Do Nothing' and 'Apply' that setting again. Then try the sim. I know it doesn't make sense but RealTek drivers sometimes revert to the 'Reduce by 80%' on a restart or something and even though they show 'Do Nothing' the driver reduces the volume by 80% as though you were receiving a phone call.

Wonderful. that fixed it for me too, thanks Bruce.

Just moved over from Win7 to Win10, so hadn't come across this lovely bug before, great !! something else I have to remember before startup.

A little payback for all the great work you did on Mode C. I've taken your work and expanded on it to add functionality to transponders like the GTN750.
Have a g'day Merv.

No, for the RXP GTN 750. I installed it in the MFD of a Phenom 100 which has a G1000 so I wrote a lua script to sync input in the GTN transponder to the G1000 PFD. Then took your code to send PE mode C from the GTN and added some logic to keep PE in mode C even when the GTN switches to ground mode.
