P3DV5 Location of control calibration file

Postby gregmorin » Tue Sep 22, 2020 4:03 pm

would you please let me know the location of the control calibration file in P3DV5. It was located in app data/local/lockeed Martin/Prepare3Dv4/controls in P3DV4. I like to back up a good calibration for future use.

Reasonable suggestion but the calibration file is not located there.

This file has to exist. The location was moved in P3DV5. Please share the location.

Thanks,

Greg

Allow me to quote Sky King:

"Try AppData\Roaming\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v5\Controls"

I have a Controls folder in that location, two files inside:

Standard.xml and
Standard.xmlx

Isn't that what you are looking for?

Thanks Jorgen

No. I am looking for a file labeled calibration.

This is relatively simple question. Would someone from Lockheed Martin please respond. Uninformed responses from other users is not helpful.

Thanks,

Greg

Greg,

At the risk of being called "uninformed" or something else, I shall respond, with what should by now be pretty obvious.

A file named "calibration" does not exist as part of a stock P3D v. 5 installation. It actually also does not exist as part of a stock v. 4 installation either. Such a file would therefore have been created by a third-party add-on.

It is therefore highly unlikely that a response from L-M will ever be forthcoming, and if it comes it will probably be worded as to the effect of my wording in the preceding paragraph.

With all respect -

Jorgen
