Hi Zoran,

 

at this point SIMstarter is not compatible with FSX-SE (I've not tested) at the moment.

 

"Microsoft fsx.exe does not exist" is not a SIMstarter error. When does the error occurs?

Usually SIMstarter does not check the source path of fsx.exe, just if the executable is named "fsx.exe". Therefore it should work (I tested at my maschine...).

Some path like "Shaders" directory are hard-coded. These features will not work - for sure. The rest could work - BUT ON YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY!

 

Have you changed the path at your Startprofile as well? Maybe there is still the old path...

Have a look when I try to save settings and exit. 

 

I also had to create a default FSX folder with FSX,cfg (copied from FSX-SE)  because FSX-SE is called FSX-SE.cfg and SS doesn't see it

 

Clear as mud ?  :nea:

Hi Zoran,

 

I am sorry, but its hard to help you because I do not use FSX-SE. Maybe I will invesigate a few minutes during the next days / month. At this time not my first prio.

 

Sorry!

Just a further update.

 

Everything is now working and pointing to the correct locations and Simstarter is able to launch FSX steam edition ( just downloaded the latest version)

 

However

 

Ths FSX.SEcfg can not be seen by Simstarter. Thats the only thing stopping Simstarter from being fully functional in Steam.

 

It wouldn't be to hard to fix that in the next update ?

Hi Zoran,

 

please send me all path and file names for FSX-SE to all relevant files (scenery.cfg, fsx.cfg, DLL.XML, e.g.)

I will have a look on it but can't promise when.

There you go. Let me know if you need anything else

Once you get established I will start a thread over at the steam forum

 

 

 path fsx.se                                                      E:\FSX-SE\steamapps\common\FSX\fsx.exe

 

 path fsx.cfg /DLL.XML/EXE.DLL                     C:\Users\bb\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX-SE\fsx-se.CFG

 

 path  Scenery.cfg                                            C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\FSX-SE\Scenery.CFG

 

 path flight sim x files                     C:\Users\bb\Documents\Flight Simulator X - Steam Edition Files

 

This is program settings as above. Only the fsx-se.CFG is not showing

Thanks. I will check that.

 

First approach would be that you can use the new filenames with SIMstarter. At this time I think there won't be a different "Mode".

 

Is there any other user who would like to participate the FSX-SE Beta User team for SIMstarter?
