Or, If you are from the upper class, Autum in Terra Australis.

Ridgy-didge mate!

Matt,

Vista really stinks badly, but just double check and make sure you have the latest drivers. I have found that the
drivers in their first rendition for Vista have caused many problems. I am eagerly awaiting SP1 for Vista which is due in
the Spring. It won't come soon enough.

Regards,


I a sure you that it is only one big automatic update. For the record orbiter and its addons run seamlessly on my pc except
the frame rates are bad (not much I can do though).  There are drivers being released weekly for Video Cards so there are
plenty to chose

No, I don't think so. If someone had enough determination to do so, it would probably be possible (but it would have
to be done vessel by vessel).

Erm... I think that 3.5 is the final version

Any way, I don't think you actualy hear sonic booms from inside, as in, in real life. I mean, you are going faster than
the speed of sound...

Doppler, sonic bang, distance and pressure fading are here since 3.0... two years ago ? :badsmile:

It work only in external ground view for several reasons:

In "orbit" view around ship as you'll turn around you'll travel across
the "sonic shock wave" several time earing each time the "bang"
(In reality it would not look like a normal bang) this would sound uggly.
(bang ! oh cool bang ! ah ? bang ! bang ! bang !  ..wow , what a bug !!! )

Also in front of shok wave you'll not ear any sound while you will when behind
(wow, OrbiterSound is buggy sound don't stop to appear/disappear)

In interior view of course you don't hear anything in reality, so,
ground camera, mach 1 and ... bang !

Notice Doppler and sonic speed work also in ground camera, as a ship come
to you at mach 1 you will not ear anything until it pass in front of you
then you'll ear the bang and the sound (and doppler effect)

This is explained in the doc of OrbiterSound "III. Things to try to get the best"

It works in target-relative, global frame, and absolute direction views for me.   :wonder: Sonic boom every time....

Should it not?

Some problems with orbiter sound that I've encountered are...
1. The sounds in the recordings are always delayed, especially the countdown on the ground.
2. With other addons and too much space taken, it dramaticly slows down or stops time in orbiter, and as everyone
knows, waiting is annoying.
And thats it, I'll update when I find more.

.

*Always* ? what sound do you speak about. ?
Countdown it's normal, OrbiterSound can't guess that you'll press full thrust 10 secondes later.
Use CTL++

Thanks but no need to fill the forum with bugs report, I'll not work on my addons before several month.

You can use this for a sonic boom: http://orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=3153

I have ran Orbiter before with Wine. It works well besides a few visual problems, and low FPS. I should think it would
work even better for a descent computer, for mine is as crappy as you can get. 1.8 Ghz Nvidia GF 6100 384 MB RAM 128 MB video
RAM 3100+ AMD Sempron.

Yeah but just think of people who don't have anything that edits config, mesh, dll, and dds files, like me, that sonic
boom addon doesn't do anything to improve orbiter, unless there was a virusfree, safe-to-use, works every time
system to edit those files

Sorry about asking (and therefore going a bit off topic)... I installed Windows Application Compatibility Tool and Glide
Wrapper, and I have had problems to run Win9x games that run with older than DX6.

Also I have tried DOSBOX but it not always work for Run Protected mode games.
I was wondering if there is a solution.

Also, I would like to experiment with Linux.
I use XP.  Is there a way to make a dual OS installation?  
I do not want to format my computer.

-Where do I find Linux (download)?
-Where do I find a tutorial on how to use it?

ar81, Ubuntu is a good place to start if you want to try Win XP and Linux on your computer. You can get Ubuntu here:
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download . You can find support for it here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ .

You won't need to format your computer, just make some space on your hard drive for the Linux file system partitions. Then
you can dual-boot XP and Linux. Note that if you burn it to a CD, you can boot directly to the OS without installing it, but
you can't write anything on the hard drive till you install.. The 'Live' CD boot feature is nice.

Is there anywhere I can still find that sonic boom addon? Like usual the link to Orbit Hanger isn't up anymore. It says file
not found :(
