Changing sound of the EC135

  • Hello,


    I have a question and haven't found a similar question in the forum: I would like to adjust the engine and rotor sounds from the EC135, as I don't find them so realistic. But that doesn't seem so easy at all. The files used for the sounds are apparently the tsb files!? I don't know this file format. Can someone please explain to me whether or how I can change the sounds? I would be very happy about an explanation.


    Best regards:)

  • Hi


    A TSB file is a wav file that has been converted via the IPACS Aircraft converter. Similar to a zipped file.


    It's use is set out in the aircraft TMD file, go to the end of any aircraft file and you will find the sound section. It's not rocket science but does take a little detective work. All good so far.


    Now the EC135 brick wall that you will find difficult to get over. All helicopter TMD files are converted to TMQ files and these cannot be accessed so you really have no idea what is happening regarding the TSB files.


    Hope this explains things for you

  • Hi Steve,


    thank you for your explanation. Hopefully there will be an update from the developers at some point. In addition, there are a few small things on the model and in the cockpit system that ideally should be improved. But all in all this has already become a great helicopter.

  • Hi Steve,

    Which parts in the cockpit would you like to see improved?

    Systems or 3D model or what do you mean...?

  • This is exactly why any developers do not design for this sim because most information is in a unknown format which stops the area of improvement to the sim unless IPACS does the work them selves . If they do design they are limited unable to change many parts of the sim that needs improvement.

  • I think you do designers a dis-service with your comments.


    From memory the weather engine does not belong to IPACS so until they replace it with their own they cannot let us do as we please.


    There are numerous scenery developers out there that produce fantastic products for the sim, most of it is free.


    Granted aircraft and helicopter design is somewhat limited. Not by FS2 but by investment in time. This is mainly because FS2 is so rich in what can be done, it takes a lot of time to master and commercial developers don't want spend that time.

  • Sorry you feel any disrespect that is not what I am trying to relay against any designer.

    I have seen even you agree change in the sim is needed.

    "FS2 VR. Fantastic in VR but lacks a lot of features. Perhaps the introduction of better weather, ATC and AI may well reduce this but time will tell."


    My hope is that IPACS will allow us to help them with this great sim that is all.

    Peace!:)
