Recommended Posts

I just built a new budget xputer for flying FSX.

Still in process installing my usual add ons

 Was gonna add HIMEMFIX=1 to FSX.cfg but I have no fsx.cfg FILE!?

On Windows 7:

 

C:\Users\[Your User]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\

 

If you don't see the "AppData" folder that's because it's hidden. You can show hidden folder under "folder options", just search for "folder options" on the start menu and under the "View" tab, set "show hidden files, folders, and drives"

Run this tag:

%AppData%\Microsoft\FSX

 

And make sure you add the right line which is: HIGHMEMFIX=1

thnx

Flying right now 

Yes I have Windows 7 & Total Commander both showing hidden files. It just didn't find using normal "search"

 

I will never fly without 2 monitors again. In fact, waiting on third DVI-D cable I'll have three soon

Then it is hidden. You have to modify your folder options it has radio button choices of what is displayed and how.

 

Do a search on your computer for "Folder Options"

So, please tell me, what is the fsx.cfg file that resides in the game's main [root] directory - does that not provide the game with all its variables?

 

I always thought it was that one which we amend...

 

Thank you,

 

Phil
