Savig FSUIPC Settings

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to save my settings for FSUIPC so that, if I need to completely reinstall P3D, I won't lose the various button assignments etc. that I've created?

 

I tried copying the FSUIPC files to a temporary directory, reinstalled P3D and FSUIPC, and then copied the saved files back yo the Modules folder in P3D.  When I did that, the button assignments for profile-specific aircraft were randomlt changed.

 

Am I missing something?

 

Thanks.

FSUIPC's settings are saved in the FSUIPC4.INI file. Your registration is in the FSUIPC4.KEY file. Those are your most important files. If you are using the Profiles in separate files facilities you need to backup the entire Profies subfolder too.

 

You should also save any macro files (.mcro) and plug-ins (.lua) files you might have created or installed.

Nothing changes the assignments, randomly or otherwise. More likely your USB devices got assigned different Windows ID numbers, probably because you plugged them in a different way, or in a different order, or maybe because you used a different version of Windows. This is the whole purpose of using Letters instead of ID numbers for USB devices. There's a chapter about this in the User Guide. FSUIPC can then keep track of devices which move and change IDs.

Pete -

 

You're right on both accounts.  I changed where the USB devices were plugged into the motherboard, and I also upgraded from Win 7 to Win 8.1  Thanks very much.
