DDA40X prime mover sound files

(1/3) > >>

GMM6809:
Hello all,
I'm not sure which section to put this in, so feel free to move it about, if necessary..

I have just installed railpro into my new run Athearn Genesis DDA40X, Centennial engine. It prototypically has two prime movers. I was thinking i could download two 645 engines, slightly different and have them turned on manually via two 'Prime' sound buttons. I tried it, and it doesn't work. Only the first sound file plays, after turning it on, and the second does not.

If the sound file in the second (or first position) is something other than the prime mover, the other button will trigger the prime mover, and i can switch the sound file of the other button to the prime mover #2, and it turns on. but this is tedious and then i can't turn the other one off haha

Does anyone have a prime mover sound file for this engine, or know of a potential work around for this issue?

I understand it's specific to this engine, but it's kinda lame to have it running around with only one engine one...

CPRail:
Instead of two sound files, what about 2 sets of speakers, each under the appropriate exhaust stack? At least then you'd have the sound of two prime movers.

Hello,
Yes, this model has two speakers in the locations described. Sounds like one engine.

The two sounds should be slightly offset, as one would start then the other, through the whole running process.

Thatís why I tried to use two similar but different sounds

GMM6809:
So, on the RailPro sound page, it lists a sound file with a DDM designation, but on the assistant, it doesn't show.

Also, I just noticed that the lighting files i have are all different than the one's on the assistant as well.

I wish that there was a way to see what the effect will look like prior to downloading it..

G8B4Life:
It is there, the DDM45 listing on the website plays the EMD 645-20 sound file, which is correct for the DDM45, not for a DD40AX.

As for the light effect files, if all the ones you have in the HC say rev 2 then they should be the same as what RPA shows as available for download, Ring dropped the revision number off the light effect filenames a while ago, I think about when the LM-1 was made able to use the Rev 2 effects.
