Flight Saving Question/Suggestions

Recommended Posts

If I do not choose one of those options will the current method still be in force so that my Autosaved "also's" get overwritten

on any given day?

Sorry, I don't understand what you are asking. Why would you add any such entries in the name of the AlsoSave file if you don't want the values they stand for?

I really do not want to have to go in and manually remove those files as I have a 7 minute save schedule.

So just don't use any of the facilities? I don't understand why you'd even ask. No one is forcing you to type %D or whatever into the filename. You choose whatever name you want. If you want it to include the aircraft name, so you have one saved per aircraft, use %A, if you want it to include the day of the week so you have a maximum of seven, use %W. If you only ever want one file, don't use any of those. And so on. Isn't that obvious? Is it really so badly described? Doesn't the word "optional" come across? :-(

Perhaps I am confusing this new set of "AlsoSave options" with the existing "AlsoManage" feature which I use.

AlsoManage1=C:\Documents and Settings\Gypsy Baron\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\*.377

AlsoManage2=C:\Documents and Settings\Gypsy Baron\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\*.P47

AlsoManage3=C:\Documents and Settings\Gypsy Baron\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\*.PJ3

AlsoManage4=C:\Documents and Settings\Gypsy Baron\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\*.B17

AlsoManage5=C:\Documents and Settings\Gypsy Baron\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files\*.ipcbin

If whatever changes have been made do not affect the above capability then I really couldn't care less

as I am satisfied with the existing capability.

Yes, I think you must be. The AlsoSave facility is completely unmanaged. The "AlsoManage" facilities simply adds other files to those deleted when the normal Autrosave cycle operates.
