P3Dv2.3 / Prepar3D.cfg
« on: August 23, 2014, 04:34:37 PM »
I'd like to add more info to my AI traffic, e.g. changing "ShowLabelFlightPlan=0" to "ShowLabelFlightPlan=1" in Prepar3D.cfg.

But with a vanilla P3Dv2.3 install I run into the problem that my edits under [AContain] in Prepar3D.cfg will be reset every time I start the client, so the edit is reset to "ShowLabelFlightPlan=0" again.

I changed Prepar3D.cfg to be read-only, and after that upon starting the P3Dv2.3 receive a pop up box "Prepar3D cannot run because it could not write Prepar3D.cfg".

How do I stop P3Dv2 from reverting my edits to Prepar3D.cfg? Or is it a new bug introduced with v2.3?
Regards,
Sebastian

Did you post on the Lockheed Martin support forum?   I don't believe it's a new issue.  It's done that for a while.

Yeah I did post it over there but with no reply. Dev Support is practically not available over there from what I figure. Must be a bug since edits to [Main] are saved with no issues but edits to [AContain] are rejected.  :wild:

Hi
You can install Traffic Toolbox from the SDK.
In Settings you will be able to choose the AI information you want.
But the changes are not saved in prepar3d.cfg.

A fine trick indeed. Thanks Sir!
