Aircraft stuck using wrong ini file?

Recommended Posts

I downloaded a repaint, a bbj, for the 737-700

 

No matter what I do, even though VP-BJJ has an ini file, and the aircraft cfg is named correctly, it wants to use the ini file from another aircraft I have installed. Australia Air Force BBJ (A36-001 registration)

In the PMDG Ops Center, it displays the ini  settings for VP-BJJ properly. Why is the other aircraft permanently assigned? I have to load in the fixed config setting, the right ini file

Sounds like you have the setting forced in your PMDG SETUP menu to use a single file.

I found the issue,

 

C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX\SimObjects\PMDG 737-700NGX WL

 

The state.CFG file has an entry for FltSim.4 with atc_id=A36-001

 

and that was over-riding what I had set in the aircraft.cfg with adding a new entry, the VP-BJJ entry was fltsim.4 too, and the fmc was looking at the new atc_id in the state.cfg file not the aircraft.cfg file! - David Lee
