FS9 Configurator

Recommended Posts

Just downloaded and installed "fs9cfg16.zip". After creating a second fs9.cfg file, I tried starting FS9 from FS9 Configurator using the new file. FS9 started, but the display switched to 600x800 mode. (I normally run at 1280x960.) Same thing happend when I tried starting using the Windows Run feature (fs9.exe /cfg:secondcfgfile)Starting from FS9 Configurator in default mode, or just running fs9.exe leaves the display setting as is.Any thoughts?Don

gadgets, as far as I know, when you first start a new .cfg it should start with 640 x 480 which is the default. Then you have to set up all settings just as when you first installed fs9.JimC.

Thanks. I just assumed I was making a copy of the file with 1280x960 already setup. But, I just checked the new file and, sure enough, the display resolution is 800x600.EDIT: This seems strange, since FS9 Configurator indicated I was saving a copy of the open FS9.cfg (which was set up for 1280x960 and other changes fromm the base) but, instead, saved a copy of the base FS9.cfg. Now that I know, I can work around the issue, but it would be nice if FS9 Configurator saved the file currently being operated upon.Don
