Disable Startup Sounds

Hello, I’m wondering if there is a way to disable the loading sounds you hear during the Asobo and Blackshark logos show up upon launching the sim?

I find them very loud and unnecessary, especially when developing and having to restart the sim tens of time a day.

Thank you.

No, you can’t. But if you developed a mod to fix that, you’d be a hero to many, myself included.

Thanks for the reply. Hopefully this addressed in the future. Makes me jump out of my seat when I tab out while loading, hehe.

There’s a whole other thread about this going on atm.

It’s a good thing the music doesn’t play while flying. It’s so friggin depressing I’d want to open the door and jump out of the plane to make it all end. The sad part is I’d still have to endure it for the length of the fall.


Indeed sir!

if you’re running the Steam version, you can just add the -FastLaunch modifier, and it will skip those splash screens entirely (you’ll go straight to ‘press any key to continue’.

You can do it with all versions. For MS Store create a new shortcut with that switch.

You can do this with the store version too. They’re is a thread somewhere with the instructions. If you search for it in sure you’ll find it

Jinx :+1: !!

I was just going to say the same but I saw you typing. :upside_down_face:

I was just coming back to share the trick! Thanks @MortThe2nd!

Here is a more detailed explanation: https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/581234-fast-startup-for-msfs/

Now only a short while until we get they annoying “Press a Key to Start” prompt. :slight_smile:

“-fastlaunch” is a bit of a deceiving command switch though. It takes just as long to load. You just stare at black screens instead of video and the copyright notices.

Correct. So long as that “music” is gone, I’m happy!
