Recommended Posts

Guys, Is there a sticky thread somewhere on this?

 

I want to be able to Export my controller profiles from DCS; uninstall everything then reinstall and load in the profiles without corruption.

 

Can this be done? I'm assuming I just need to backup my Saved Games/DCS/Input dir..

Has anyone done this? I want to save my assigned hotas profiles for each aircraft, so I can uninstall and reinstall 1.2.5 then load the assignments back in without haing to reassign everything again from scratch.

I got a feeling I. Just need to save my saved games/DCS input folder( though it should stay there if I uninstall? ) for when I uninstall/reinstall.

I'm about to reinstall windows after acquiring some Samsung SSD 256GB drives. Can these files simply be pasted back into the saved games directory after everything is reinstalled?

one way to find out I guess..do it..but as whartsell says..make a backup copy.Drop them in after the reinstall and if it works..BONUS. If not then back to square one.

 

Please let us know how you get on with this.

Regards

The Options>Controls menu includes a Load Profile button and a Save (or something like that) Profile button. You must save the profile for each controller separately (and load them individually as well). You must do this for each controller for each aircraft. In other words you will have a Joystick A-10 profile, and a rudder A-10 profile and so forth.

 

If you look in the DCS World manual you will find documentation for this.

Thanks, got it working in the end.

 

Simple copy and paste over didn't work straight away. I had to do like you mentioned; for each aircraft; on each controller column I had to load the controller profile; ie Joystick , then throttle, Rudder Pedals, etc etc.

Guys, does anybody knows a way to export the input files to a new Win8.1 installation? I've finished my DCSW installation with all the modules but can't find a way to get my backup inputs to work. Do I have to set everything again???:doh:

The standard Export and Import functions on the Options>Controls screen work just fine. I upgraded my sim machine from Win 7 to 8.1 a while ago and I did not do anything out of the ordinary.

Well, I found the problem, I upgraded my computer with a new I7 and a new MB and now, my HOTAS Warthog stick and CH Products set are been recognized different. Looks like I'll have to set everything again. I'm crying.:cry_2:

 

Thanks for the help, cichlidfan:thumbup:

The controllers receive some unique IDs in lua files like Logitech G13 Joystick {594BD920-3F0B-11e3-8002-444553540000}.lua

 

Try change that ID and see if it works.
