Fs9.exe Dual Config File

Recommended Posts

Hi,I remember there was an option for a command line parameter to boot FS with another CFG file. /cfg or something. Searched but couldnt find.. :-(From the net I found this: I would like to try settings in the fs9.cfg file, is it possible to have several of them?Yes, the main program config file gets its name from the executable: fs9.exe will have fs9.cfg, if you copy and rename fs9.exe to fs9_yoke.exe and another to fs9_stick.exe the program will create both an fs9_yoke.cfg and an fs9_stick.cfg.All you have to do is to create a shortcut for each exe file to launch FS with the corresponding configuration and customisation. There is no limit apparently to the number of renamed exe/cfg combinations that you can create. This seems very useful when regularly using different devices, different settings when flying online or simply experimenting.But I remember a shortcut edit would also work.Anyone who remembers this ?Johan
