Box to Steam transition : suggestions ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm almost about to switch from a humungous 2008 Box Gold install to a fresh Steam one, and I've started collecting info, for starters from:

 

https://fsxinsider.com/transitioning-from-boxed-fsx-to-fsxse-part-1-fsx-stripback/

 

I've also searched this forum and manual for details yet, as a happy MT6 user with FSX and P3D, I'd like to have a confirmation that I can backup reusable datas, unistall Box FSX, clean evertyhing up to the registry, install SE, and finally simply point again MT6 Communicator to FSX (not FSXSE), as specified in this forum

 

or is there something else I'm missing?

 

thanks

I would expect it to be like this, but you can easily check when yoz browse to %appdata% and than to Microsoft if you only have the FSX folder or also an FSX-SE folder - I know no programmer who understands what they are doing...

......no luck:

 

- MT6 Communicator FSX section is correctly pointed to the root FSX SE folder

- fsx.cfg is set for MT6, traffic 35%

- FSXSE (Norway ENGM) depicts only its stock airliners (also SupertrafficBoard is seeing only stock traffic)....?

it's getting better:

 

I've added MT6 scenery to the library, and MT6 airliners started to appear, yet there are still a lot of stock airliners around (KLAX)
