Reset the X-Plane 10/11 Preferences

Recommended Posts

In some cases it is a good idea to reset the preferences (for example after a big update):
Goto the X-Plane 10/11 Root folder, find ...Output/preferences.
(For STEAM users see here how to find the X-Plane 10 main folder: http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/83728-faq-x-plane-10-steam-version/ )

In this folder you find some files, beginning with X-Plane and ending with .prf

Move this files out of the folder and save them to another location (so you can restore it, if something went wrong).
Than start x-plane 10/11. It will create new preferences.
An now you are able to configure your X-Plane 10/11 with new settings incl. the Joystick Settings...
Please do it carefully and step by step: It depends on your hardware (grafic card, video RAM, System RAM...).
So configure the rendering option/Grafic not at too hight values if you (for example) use a low grafic card.... (like Intel HD Grafic or mobility cards....).
In some cases it is a good idea, at first only to delete the file X-Plane.prf (make a backup of it).
Sometimes if there is a server / update problem, it is a good idea to delete the "server_list_...txt" too.
