FGCom installation 2.12.1

Postby ReviloBacon » Thu Jan 23, 2014 10:42 pm

In 2.12 I have been having some trouble getting FGCom to work. As far as I have heard it is supposed to come preinstalled although I have checked and the binary is definatley not included in my installation.
I have tried running FGCom standalone however cannot find anywhere to download a precompiled windows binary, the only download I can find is the git repository. If anyone can help in any way to find a solution, please let me know!

Thanks! :D :D

Hi,

FGCom is not preinstalled in 2.12
FGCom is preinstalled in 3.0.0

A solution is to read the documentation: http://wiki.flightgear.org/FGCom_3.0

If you have problem with this documentation (e.g don't understand a step) or whatever, please report it here.

Thank you for replying.
I have followed the documentation but when I start FGCom I get the following error:
"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)
Do you know what may be causing this?

Hmm maybe because you downloaded FGCom 64 bits instead of FGCom 32 bits ?
The wiki is clear about that: << (take care to select the correct version for your computer !) >>

I downloaded the correct version, I am running a 64 bit install of FlightGear on a 63 bit copy of Windows, I'll try the 32 bit version anyway just in case it works. :) :)

Ok, this time it's closer to working.
However, after starting it fails to function. The last line says "OpenAl function alcOpenDevice failed with code 0"
I have checked and my Microphone is enabled as are my speakers.

This is an audio driver error, I suggest you to reinstall your audio driver maybe he is outdated.
Are you able to use your microphone with other application ? (Skype, Mumble...)

It still works with everything else I use including skype and mumble, I'll run the updater anyway incase it helps.

Thank you for all your help in getting FGCom up and running :D
It turns out that I forgot to plug the microphone in XD
Anyway, it works now!

Please, can you open a new thread where you explain exactly your problem.
Here you are writting in an solved thread who has nothing to do with your question.

Also I doesn't understand the point of your question... what the problem with "fgcom 3.0 needs simgear 3.0" ?

Anyway, you have to open a new thread and be precise in your question/setup if you want a precise answer
