Just wondering how the PA section placed on the overhead panel of the DC10 panels are working. Are there some sound files I have to install separatly? Or is it to use with some third party like FSPassenger, which I am not using. Could not find something about that issue in the formum treats. Would be nice to have some passenger announcemnts on my DC10 flights

If you mean crew to PAX type cabin announcements Michael .... then the answer is "NO" .... and despite the fact the/a tab is there and is otherwise functional
I guess it's there, and functional, because George possibly desired to leave this option open and exploitable for possible future expansion .... though I'm not sure.
These Panels/Simulations .... as we provide them .... aren't equipped with cabin announcements though these can be added per any one of a number of "Cabin Announcement Dialogue" add-on packages which are available at both AVSIM.COM and FS.COM .... just search for "CABIN ANNOUNCEMENTS". These add-ons are (again) separate to anything we offer and work through their own module/utility which needs t be added to each panel .... but which we can't, and don't, provide support for.
In so far as any dialogue is concerned and that "IS" implemented into the DC-10 Panels we offer .... all we provide is "cockpit to ground dialogue" specifically for the APU "out"/GPU assisted alternative engine startup procedure (a very rare scenario with DC-10's as I used to observed of them during the 1970's and 80's .... in fact I only ever say this particular procedure used "once only") which is designed into these Panels/Simulations. Incidentally the voice-overs for this particular dialogue are actually recordings of "one'n'only George CARTY himself"
None of our other Panels/Simulations feature Cabin announcement dialogue either .... BUT .... those for our B707/720/C-135 SERIES, CV-880/CV-990, DC-8 "DO" feature cockpit to ground dialogue for their engine startup procedures (actually recordings of FINE AIR's captain Felix VILLAVERDE) .... and our DC-9 Panels/Simulations feature something similar but at the same time totally different too (recordings of SAS;s captain Stelan HILMERBY and an unknown female Cabin attendant). Again .... cabin announcement dialogue "can" be procured elsewhere and adapted to these panels/simulations per another module (and probably any other simulation as well), but, if implementing any of this data then please be aware that we/HJG don't/can't provide support for it.
I like the the cockpit/ground dialogs and use them all the time for the start up procedures. Anway you are right, there are some stand alone programs for FS9 available. Maybe I will give them a try somedays.
