Aircraft sounds fade away and X-Plane crashes


Recommended Posts


Just installed 1.0.3 version of SR22 Series Entegra on a Windows 10 platform running X-Plane 11.  Within a few seconds after the aircraft loads, I noticed that the aircraft sounds fade away.   I would turn on the boost pump and that sound would fade away after a few seconds.   This happens for any sounds (ex. engine running, etc.)

I tried to reload the aircraft (with and without the artwork) which crashes X-Plane.   Below are the last few lines from the log.txt file (attached) which seems to indicate a problem with Entegra.  I see this consistently.  Note this is a recent problem starting with 1.0.2 verson of Entegra a few months ago.  The problem did not exist prior to that time.

Please advise.  Thanks!

X-Plane doesn't handle reloads all the time. In regards to the sounds, that would be something separate - I haven't seen that before. Can you try recharging the batteries (in the SR22 menu that can be opened via the SR22 item in the X-Plane menu bar, there is a button on the popup)

Thanks for your quick response to this problem!

I restarted XPlane with Entegra several times with sporadic results.   

The first few times all sounds were consistent and did not fade away- normal operation.  But after restarting XPlane with Entegra several more times, the problem returns.   I recharged the batteries but got the same results.  Attached is snapshot of battery after recharge.

Also, I noted that this seems to affect sounds in a strange way.   For example, after flipping Bat 1&2, I would hear the system startup but soon that sound would fade away.  Then, I would prime the engine and that sound would come on then quickly fade away.  I could flip (and hear the click of) other switches separately.  So, it seems each sound comes on when commanded then fade away.

Not really - this is the only report of its kind. I'm guessing something is messing with the volumes in X-Plane for some reason, or an issue with the audio driver/sound setup. I'd recommend temporarily removing all other 3rd party plugins (besides Gizmo64, as that is required) to see if that changes anything. Do any of the X-Plane audio sliders move around in the sim from where you initially set them? (Take a look when sounds are playing, then another when sounds aren't)

OK, the problem seems to have gone away after updating my NVIDIA card driver.   I tried it several times after with none of the problems described earlier.   Just to let others know in case they run into the same issue.

I did notice that the 1.0.3 version of SR22 Series Entegra update somehow lost the hotspot to replace the CAPS card cover after the flight.  I hovered the mouse all over the adjacent area (where it use to be) and found nothing.   The hotspot to remove and replace the CAPS pin still works.
