YS is control-less

Hi, I've got a problem here. YS is 'control-less' for me on some PCs. That means that I can set controls but that all the controls are blanked out when I leave the screen, which results in not being able to do anything. I am running YS from a flash drive, if that helps. Does someone know this problem and know how to fix it? Thanks in advance!

Yeah I keep switching PCs. But, the thing is that I can't set controls and so...

They are wiped out when you leave the screen? Do you mean if you let the computer go to sleep? It may be that your settings aren't saving back to the flash drive before sleep/hibernation. I would recommend trying to set up all of your controls, then exit the game (this will ensure they get written back), safely remove your flash drive by ejecting it in whatever way your particular OS allows you, then put it back in, restart YS, and see if your controls stuck.

No. The controls are wiped out when I leave the "key assignments" screen.

Completely un install Ys, and re install.

Not quite sure if the flash drive has anything to do with it.. May need to further investigate.

YSFlights control config is stored in "User/*/Documents/YSFlight.com/YSFlight"

Seeing as you are using a flash drive, yeah you;re pretty much screwed sorry.

You could try and copy that file across to the root directory on your flash drive, but I doub't that'll fix it.

Something that really disappointed me as part of the "windows vista fix" really...

You need to install YS on that comp in order to run correctly. As an after thought, do you have the 'YSFLIGHT.COM" folder from "Documents" (or similar) on the flash drive? Programming sends the comp to certain folders (the way the air*.lst tells YS where the aircraft are) and if the comp can't find the correct file there, it won't work properly.

That is what bothers me: I tried installing YS from USB TO the PC, and that did not work too...

Did you run the setup? Also, are the two "YSFLIGHT.COM" folders on there (the thumb drive)? That extra folder may affect the path the comp takes when looking for a file as-well.

I run mine through a USB. When you controls are set up, save the configuration as a separate file onto the USB. I do this with my joystick button configuration.
When on another computer simply press load, select the file and you're set.
(I'm not on the computer at the moment so I can't take screenies, will later though).

Fixed it by copying all YS config stuff to the folder. Should create some .bat file for doing this on a new PC
EDIT: Is there NO WAY to just load the stuff in the config folder? Should poke Soji about that. (his email is that one that's at the bottom of the YS page, no?)
