Everything Has Reset!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Went to make a flight tonight, all my settings have reverted even though it doesn't show any different in the options screen.  I was getting the odd cockpit interaction, so had to turn legacy off and back on.  Then as I tried to take off, I got a thing saying my objective was to apply full throttle.  Halfway down the runway, the aircraft decided to turn on the emergency brake and drag me to a halt.

 

What's going on?!

 

EDIT - trying to advance the throttle, it resets to idle.  Went and tried to drag the throttle levers, they instantly reset to idle.  Also, my place/airport indicators are back on.

I've had this happen a few times to a friend of mine. We traced it back to the "auto-optimize" function in nVidia Geforce Experience. If you have MSFS set to be optimised, it will go ahead and replace your settings with what *it* thinks you should have. This typically happens after a driver update.

I make sure I periodically check that this setting in the GFE CP hasn't magically enabled itself.

Better yet, just don't install GeForce Experience.

I've never seen the need for it. Would be interested in hearing if anyone does see a need for it.

I use GeForce Experience all the time and have never had it reset anything except the graphics settings if I request it. GE is by no means the end all and be all, but it's a useful tool for setting up an OK graphics profile from which I can make a few minor tweaks, e.g., turning bloom OFF, etc.

Is it better than going through a individually tweaking every graphics parameter? No, but I would rather spend less time tweaking and more time flying.

I don't appear to have this, so I don't know what happened.  I went and thought I'd set everything to reasonable values, only to find I'd missed the crash detection.  It's always something!
