Do I understand the fsx.cfg incorrectly??
Under [CONTROLS] there is a default=standard and a 2nd line that says current="my named file" - when I do a LOAD and then SAVE the current OPTIONS & CONTROLS written to "my named file.cfg" and a NEW entry is made in the CONTROLS folder with the same name as "my named file". The next time I start FSX I see "my named file" load (I watch all the file operations with PROC MON) and then those settings for ALL FSX options go into effect. If I delete the current= "my file name" entry then the standard file and standard controls are loaded. If I change the current= entry in fsx.cfg I can make FSX load any OPTIONS & CONTROLS I have previously saved or created.
Therefore: I understood that I can SAVE any file name I want. I have many different configuration/control files depending on what type of an FSX environment I want.
Do I misunderstand the whole thing - it seems to work very well now that I have the correct directory in the SAVE box.
I just tested my ST290 profiles and found they were NOT LOST when I moved the ST290 USB from port to port (my system has eight USB ports). I don't lose the profile if I move the USB while FSX is running (either paused, flying, or even in the initial load screen) and I DO NOT lose the settings if I shut FSX down, move the USB plug, and then restart FSX
