Certificates and Awards

wazsxr Guest

G'day,
I'm just wondering how (if at all possible) to reset all of the awards and certificates. Why you may ask? Basically my house mate has gotten very board of playing this game and says he doesn't mind if I play it now on the computer. He has already racked up some certs. and awards, I would like to start from a clean slate, is this possible? Cheers

re install game.

No worries, so that's the only way? I was hoping for a reg edit or a .cfg file.

If you have corrupted files you can delete them then
from the installation DVD's, use the repair function and they should be
replaced.

Might work, let us know how you do.

No worries, I will fill you in as to how it goes. Just need to know which file holds these awards and certificate status?

have you tried deleting the log book?

wazsxr Guest

Yep, That was the first thing I tried. I did delete all the log book entries but not the awards.

look under:

c:\program files\microsoft games\microsoft flight simulator x\rewards\

there are 2 files:

mission rewards.rwd
dandbox rewards.rwd

Yeah, even tried renaming those files with no luck. If anyone can contribute any other ideas please do. I will make sure I share any success that I have.

I haven't tried this, but if FSX was installed for all users (normally the case with most software), try creating a new Win logon ID for yourself and launching the game from that ID. I'm guessing that the personal profile settings (saved games, rewards, etc) are maintained on a per-person basis, given where they are stored.

The FSX files are stored under the user's profile in WinXP, in:

C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\My Documents\Flight Simulator X Files

I found this while taking a backup of my storage drive. The logbook and settings config files, etc. are all located there. If you remove these files or move them to another location, then FSX starts with a clean slate. The rewards files are located in:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Rewards

Either backup his files and remove them from the directories I listed, or install FSX under your profile, assuming you have admin priviledges.

Hope this helps and answers your question!

Bill
