Different 'Scenery Modes':
With TweakFPS you avoid the need for moving sliders and settings back and forth
for different types of flying, IFR, VFR or for special scenery such as
MegaScenery. You also cut out the need to continually edit the FS9.Cfg manually,
a tedious task at the best of times. After applying the mode TweakFPS will
launch FS2004 with your preferred flight (assigned via the 'Settings' page).
Set Up Custom Modes:
TweakFPS gives you the ability to tweak the default predefined modes. If you do
not fancy the 'hard-coded' program defaults then you can customize the mode to
your liking. TweakFPS will save your customized mode and will load that when you
press the 'Apply' button.
The Scenery Mode names and descriptions can also be changed (except the
protected "Original FS9.Cfg" Mode) by right-clicking on them. If for any reason
the custom config did not work out or you want to revert to the program default
you can do so by clicking the 'Restore' button. Each Variable has a Tooltip with Range Information:
Each key in the FS9.Cfg file has a format and range that is required by FS2004.
When setting up a custom mode double-clicking on the variable brings up the
small "Edit Value" window. Hovering your mouse over the input box will give you
a tooltip with information on the range of the variable (eg. 'TrafficDensity
Range = 1-100'). FS9.Cfg Viewer/Manual Editor:
For those who like the power of editing the FS9.Cfg file directly TweakFPS
provides a simple integrated text editor that you can use to make any other
changes. Attractive "Integrated" FS2004 Look:
Generally speaking utilities are fairly plain-looking. We have also put much
thought and effort into making TweakFPS pleasing to the eye. We recommend
running TweakFPS under Windows XP for the best visual experience.
