How To Remove or Enable Red Text

Recommended Posts

Thought I would post this on how to remove or enable the (annoying) red text SLEW, STALL, etc. from the screen corners in FSX
 
Follow the steps below:
 
1) Exit Flight Simulator X. Make sure that Flight Simulator X is not running!!!
2) Browse to the folder containing FSX.CFG. To do so, open Internet Explorer and write in the address bar the following address: %appdata%\microsoft\fsx
3) Double click FSX.CFG file (if your operative system is configured to hide the file's extension, you will read just FSX without ".CFG" appended)
4) FSX.CFG is now open into Windows Notepad or similar text editor. Make sure that in the [Display] section, the followings lines exist:
 
InfoBrakesEnable=False
InfoParkingBrakesEnable=False
InfoPauseEnable=True
InfoSlewEnable=True
InfoStallEnable=False
InfoOverspeedEnable=False
You can selectively enable (=True) or disable (=False) only the desired texts. However, for WidevieW computers, I recommend the settings listed above.
 
5) In the [Main] section, make sure that the following line exists, regardless if you want to remove or enable the red texts:
 
HIDEINFOTEXT=0
 
If this parameter is set to 1, ALL the information text will be removed, which is really not advisable, as you will no longer see the zoom value while you are altering it, or the selected camera's name.
 
6) Save FSX.CFG and restart Flight Simulator.
 
Enjoy :)

You might want to try FlusiFix, makes editing of your .cfg quite easy, lots of fixes are incorporated already and only need to be activated. Can also be used to disable airplanes from the menu selection, increase ai traffic speed, etc etc.
