The 'fsx.CFG.txt' or 'fs9.CFG.txt' files-- What are their purpose?


Recommended Posts

If the FSX.cfg or FS9.cfg; are the main files that take care of business, then what is the purpose of the simulator even producing a -CFG.txt file to accompany it? It in essence reads the same exact thing, but does nothing operational.


If I want to experiment w/ a new .cfg file and put the old one in a storage folder while I'm testing, do I also need to put its matching -CFG.txt file away in the same folder?


Or I can leave it outside in the main 'Users/(Name)/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft/FS9 or FSX folder, and it will sit there just fine w/o disrupting my test with the new .cfg file?

fsx.CFG has the current time and date and is created every time FSX is closed


fsx.CFG.txt has older time and time and was created when FSX crashed to create a log for Microsoft. It's not clear what, if anything, it ever did and can be deleted.
