Controls/Settings File in FSX


Recommended Posts

Before I start using FSUIPC to assign axes, buttons, calibration, etc., I would like to make a backup of my current controls/settings file in FSX just in case I do something that was not smart and I need to recover or get back to where I was. Could someone please give me the file name or explain how I would recover?

Thanks for your help!

If you've not used FSUIPC for such things before, there's nothing yet to save. When you do make settings, they are all saved in the FSUIPC4.INI file ("config settings" file). Just make a safe copy of that. You'll find it in the FSX Modules folder. Save a copy of your KEY file as well while you are at it -- it contains your registration details.

FSUIPC doesn't make any changes to FSX's configuration files at all. The only thing you are likely to do with FSX before making assignments in FSUIPC is to disable controllers -- so that the FSX assignments don't conflict. If you ever want to get back to using FSX assignments instead you'd just delete the FSUIPC4 settings and re-enable controllers in FSX. It's only one checkbox.

Regards

Pete
