answered Nick, question about one thing in your guide to installing the HF

Recommended Posts


 I have a quick question as I get ready to install the new files, I pretty much understand everything and will follow it to the letter as it sounds like a solid plan.


 One thing though, this: 

Ideally, you should run the P3D\Delete Generated Files batch file but it will leave every setting back at default.

If you have spent time on controls settings, for example, you will loose them all. It's up to you.


If I have my controller settings saved and I don't care about the other settings will doing this affect ANY other sceneries? like FlyTampa or Flightbeam, FSDream such as that? OR does it just affect the main programs settings and details? NOTE, I haven't installed any other add-on aircraft yet.


thanks man, sorry to bother.

This is an extract from the P3D guide, which you can download here


• C:\Program Files\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5 (or the modified install location)

• %PROGRAMDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5

• %LOCALAPPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5

• %APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5

• %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Files

• %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons


If you let it delete of all these, you will be following the guidelines but you may also be creating yourself some unnecessary work.

So I can assume that I will only do this as a last resort should some unusual problems show up.


 But the P3d.cfg is always a good idea to replace.


Got it, thanks man!! I'm downloaded now!! I'm excited!!
