Ulisses,The FS2002.cfg file is created the first time you run flight simulator. It keeps track of all the settings for FS. I might be wrong but I don't think there is anything you can do with the file to itself to improve performance or any visual aspect of FS. All the display settings can be modified within FS itself. I know you can add something like "display_brake_message = 0" in the SIM section to get rid of the brake message while flying, but I am not sure of much else. Check around this site for great freeware and add-ons of just about anything you can think of for FS, and if you think of something specific you may want and can't find, then wait a while and it will crop up.

The Flightsim Veteran's Club used to have a HUGE FAQ on tweaking FS, but their FAQ page is gone as is their website. Anyone else have a link to this?

There are almost as many opinions on this issue as there are fixes. Because each system is different, it is first important to understand what each setting in the FS2002.cfg Terrain section means, and controls. The definitive explanation of these settings was presented by PaulL01 some months ago. What follows is Paul's brief:<<
