Cant get changes in FSX settings/controls/buttons to stick

Recommended Posts

Hi all , this has been going on for ages so time for a fix

 

When I go to settings, controls, buttons and then make a change to one of the keys I find that when I save and exit those changes they dont actually save to the next flight.

 

However if I make those changes several times they will eventually save. But then starts another problem. If I delete those changes they dont actually delete but re appear in the next flight

 

what am I doing wrong here?

I've also noticed this bug as well. After I make a change, I save the folder on my back up HD so if the settings revert back to what they were before I made changes, I can simply copy & paste the saved changes back into FSX.

 

The folder is located in the same folder as your FSX cfg file. It is the very top folder titled "Controls". Open that folder up and you will see an XML file labeled "Standard". That file contains all the settings you made from the Control tab in the Options drop down menu in the FSX Tool Bar.

 

Hope that helps a bit.

well thats better than having to manually go through it all, thanks for the tip

 

Just a thought, you could also save a profile for every aircraft?

Will that save the control settings for each plane?

Than i cant  see  why its not  saving  than the settings, suppose your  running  as admin rights  as well. Was going to mention have  you got your fsx folder  checked  for read only but  than again you say  it works some  times  so this  is not  an option to  check.

From my experience FSX doesn't save changed settings if you do not exit FSX properly, e.g. if FSX crashes after you've changed the settings. Also I found that it doesn't change them permanently if you exit it via Alt+F4 instead of the exit button on the main page, but maybe I got something wrong there...

thought I would Bump this because I have no control over FSX settings anymore

 

Now I cant even save changes in Fsx.cfg

 

Im trying to change wide=false to true but it just reverts back again

 

UAC slider is at off or never notify so whats happening here?. I am running FSX as admin

Ok  this may sound  stupid  but  when you make  changes  in  your  fsx.cfg setting  and  when you exit  does  a box appear  saying you want  to save  changes?

its saved okay now after I right clicked fsx folder/properties and enabled full control. Maybe this will solve my problems, I cant check until I finish my 2 hour flight.

 

Im pretty sure I saved the Cfg file , I dont think you close the file or remove it from the task bar unless its saved?
