adding scenarios?

Postby [Lemmy] » Sun Mar 03, 2019 9:18 am


I want to use the Pinzgauer.xml from but I can't seem to find preferenmces.xml, where do I put the settings to enable the scenario?

Running on openSUSE Leap 15.0 using the rpm from the opensuse build service, games repository.

Any hits?

preferences.xml is now defaults.xml... you should not edit it... instead use --config=path/to/blahblah.xml and see if that works for you... you can add it to the command line or you can maybe use it in the launcher's additional settings box...

"Why not?" said Gurder.

Save that scenario file to the root of fgdata/AI and launch the sim at LOWZ. When you are in the sim you can activate the scenario under AI menu. Shouldn't be a need to add any commands anywhere if you don't want to.
