'Flying Tips' won't go away.

Recommended Posts

In the settings for FSX, accessed via the 'Customize' tab, there is a tick-box for 'Flying Tips'.  Like all these selectable settings it must (?) alter an entry in the fsx.cfg file.  For the life of me I can't stop these tips from appearing on screen even though the tick-box is not selected.  I've checked, every time they appear, and the tick box is not selected; I've looked at the fsx.cfg file and can't find anything there, in fact I can't find a specific line entry for 'flying tips'.  Should there be one, or is it labelled something more obscure?  I assume any entry against it would be null or 0 to prevent the tips from appearing?  Anyone, please?

Try going to:

Settings 
   Customize
      Aircraft
         Show Cockpit Tooltips
And, make sure it is not checked.

Tooltips and Flying tips are 2 different settings.

He said he already reset that.

Ray, he said in his first post he went to FSX/Settings/Customize and unticked a box.  The only box there is "ToolTips" under Display!

"FlyingTips" (which pops up messages like "Press the Ctrl+X key to reset your Mixture", etc).  ToolTips is when you place your mouse pointer on a switch or button and it displays the function of that switch or button.

He need to go to Settings/Realism to untick flying tips!

All it takes is to read the opening post carefully and reply to the question asked. This is not a competition, or at least not in my world. It is just an attempt to give the topic author the correct advice.

OK all, thanks for the help.  Obviously this poor lamb got his Cockpit Tool Tips and Flying Tips mixed up!  I apologise for inadvertantly causing a 'stooshie'.  I have now sorted it out, thanks to you.
