Startup Situation

Recommended Posts

Guest

Please could someone help - I have loaded a situation on opening FS2002 which has been corrupted and I cannot get into the program. I would therefore like to reselect the original Cessna at Meigs startup situation but do not know which files to copy and overwrite to rectify the situation. Please could someone help!! Thanks!!

Go to the main FS2002 folder and delete the file named FS2002.cfg (this is the file which points to the bad startup situation). FS2002 will automatically rebuild this file the next time the program is started. This will get you back to the way it was setup on the original installation.Doug

Doug's suggestion will work but you'll lose all your settings. A slightly more friendly way is to open FS2002.CFG, locate the USERINTERFACE section and find the following entry... (this is mine)SITUATION=F:FS2002FLIGHTSmyfltsPrevious flightDelete everything after the = sign (just on that line), save FS2002.CFG and reload FS. It should put you back at Meigs in the Cessna and hopefully with all your settings preserved.Hope that helps!
