Multiple settings configs possible ?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to use multiple settings config files ?

So when flying to larger airports with large cities nearby you could use lower Lod settings and lower car traffic settings .

And when flying to smaller airports with smaller towns nearby you could use higher settings.

Thanks.

Nothing is available like SimStarter yet (that I know of.)

I take pictures of the different settings screens and adjust to my needs. Old school but it gets the job done without Rube Goldberging the whole process. You only change a few of the settings anyway so it's fairly quick.

If the Options tab has its own file then it could be found.

With a batchfile multiple files could be switched before starting MSFS.

Very much doable.

The Options -> Graphics page settings are stored in "UserCfg.opt" file, located in "%appdata%\Microsoft Flight Simulator" (Steam version. MS Store version should be similar).

True, but I don't have a complete understanding of where and how many and what's their names yet so loading the program (which you have to do) and letting it do all the work is my chosen method right now. Together with MSFS Addon Linker it solves the problem easily.

Putting the various configs in different folders and creating virtual links to the config files would do it.

Here I have the Store version.

In AppData there is either the Local or Roaming folder. Both have a Microsoft folder but in none of them Microsoft Flight Simulator...

But I found it in AppData\Local\Packages\MS Flightsimulator.......\LocalCache

Switching the config file before launching the app is no problem at all. But I don't think this is of much use since you can't change the file with the game running and have to restart for using another pre-saved config. Asobo really should implement a save/load settings functionality.

Windows has a good (not very fast) file search within the explorer  Just look for the file name. I don't have the steam version so I can't point you to the file directly.

Made 2 different config files : IFR and VFR (sightseeing)

Before launching MSFS I can choose if I want to fly different from last time.

Thanks everyone 👍

There should be an option to save configs like in P3D. That's not that hard to do and I assumed this would be possible out of the box. I was wrong. 

ture, it should be but isn't.

same with the sim rate display, was in the beta but isn't.

it is really a shame that these very basic and simple things are missing.  It is like if MS Word suddenly eliminated the letter 'L' in their next update and everyone said 'no problem, just use a capital i'.  Overall, it is just weird.
