Not really sure about this one. It sometimes may not sound off due to various reasons for instance quick switching between cabview/exterior or just depending on the scenario for some reason.

Hmm, I've tried 3 different scenarios using only cab view and I can't get the alerter sound to work. It's extremely easy to miss it if you're not staring at the HUD icon the whole time.

Maybe the files being replaced are set to read only. This usually leads to defected installations.

If the files being replaced were set to read-only, then they wouldn't allow me to replace them

I actually did notice last night that my alerter sound isn't working on the MACs either. I'm gonna dig into my files and see what's going on.. We haven't changed anything so...?

I did my best to dig through the bins and proxys comparing to the SD70M (SP) version that does work, but I couldn't come up with anything significantly different. The one thing I saw was an initial volume of 0.85 vs 0.5 on the other for the EMD alerter sound, but I don't think that would do anything.

Your install download should include a text file that has a link to replace those, it's a licensing thing.

I had an issue with the CSX MAC's. I activated the dynamic brakes to keep the speed in check coming off of a bridge on Miami-WPB, but when I applied them, massive POGO oscillations went through the train and threw it off the bridge. I noticed the same problem before with other SD70's with stock physics.

I picked up this excellent pack recently, however I had a couple of questions. I noticed when running the BNSF SD70MAC's, the alerter is silent. Was this ever resolved? Also on the BNSF SD70MAC's, the bell is not triggered by the horn. Is that intentional?
