FSXOptions_High_Altitude.cfg ...

Recommended Posts

I've searched the AS2012 SP2 manual and the forum but couldn't find anything on the following. I'm wondering if someone can explain what the following 3 files are for in

 

C:\Users\~USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\HiFi\AS2012\Options:

 

FSXOptions_High_Altitude.cfg

FSXOptions_Low_Altitude.cfg

FSXOptions_Standard.cfg

 

Are these config files read by AS2012, or are they simply there as examples for different modes of flying, or what?

 

Thanks.

The first two files are loaded when you select one of the options on the initial screen. The third is probably a standard version of the file that's loaded if you don't have a config file already made.

 

Don't worry about these now. I've made a suggestion to change how the files work and they're looking into it. For example, currently if you have customized your options, then select one of the two options in the initial screen, it overwrites all your customizations. I've requested that the option files be trimmed back to only the specific differences needed for that type of flying, loading your existing options file, then applying the changes to that. This way if you've turned off the thunder sound, for example, it will stay turned off. Note that the third option on the initial screen will load your existing options.
