UserCFG.opt question

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to change some LOD settings in this config file. I change the values from 2 to 4 and then save the file. But after running MSFS and going back to the file, the values have reverted back to the original values. What am I missing? And yes, the file is NOT Read Only.

You need to save your changes then tick read only in the file properties.

No, please do NOT do that.

My product will manage this for you so you don't have to mess with it ... BUT you need to change the Preset entry to Custom (there are two sections also, one for VR and one for standard)

Example:

{Graphics
    Version 1.1.0
    Preset Custom
    {Texture
        MaxAnisotropy 16
        Quality 0
    }
    {SuperSampling
        SuperSampling 3
    }
    {Terrain
        LoDFactor 4.000000
    }
    {ObjectsLoD
        LoDFactor 4.000000
    }
 

Be careful editing this file, if you save it in the wrong format MSFS will either CTD or recreate the file with defaults.

Cheers, Rob.

Excellent tip Robert, thank you!

Any tips on shaders, if is anything like that?

Thanks Robert, I wondered about making that file Read-Only.

Will this method work for the eye adaptation setting as well? Just change it to Preset Custom for those sections as well?
