A Japanese player asked me a question about OrbiterSound ATC chatter:

Is it possible to permanently enable ATC sound with NASSP? I always turn it on when I play Orbiter but it seems NASSP keeps disabling it.
I usually avoid using time acceleration when I play NASSP, and sometimes I want to hear the random radio chatter.

I’ve read OrbiterSound documentation and tried custom vessel configuration file. But I couldn’t make it work.
Or… should I recommend him use mp3 playlist instead?

There is a flag called "PRELAUNCHATC" that can be set to 1 (true) in the ship configuration of the scenario file.
Code:
...
BEGIN_SHIPS
Columbia:ProjectApollo\Saturn5
  ...
[B]  PRELAUNCHATC 1[/B]
  ...
END
...
END_SHIPS

...the name however might be misleading, as in the source-code it sets a variable named 'UseATC'.
PHP:
	///
	/// Flag to determine whether we leave the OrbiterSound default ATC enabled. Some people like
	/// it, so if this flag is true we allow them to use it.
	/// \brief Orbitersound ATC enabled.
	///
	bool UseATC;

So that 'PRE-LAUNCH' part in the name might not be accurate, though.

Thank you! It works like a charm.

So, this is what needs to be done in order to enable ATC:

1. Open SoundConfig.exe. Enable Allow ATC Sound option. Save and exit.
2. Find PRELAUNCHATC 0 in the scenario file or create a new line. Change it to PRELAUNCHATC 1.

Exactly! Thanks for clarifying this even more!
