Where is the configuration file that holds all my settings (joystick button assignment, music settings, graphics, battle settings, etc)?  I want to reinstall World of Warplanes, but I don't want to have to change all these settings, one by one.  I want to copy the file, then put it back.

For WoWP...I think it's the one in appdata and not the one in res...the former is noticeably larger than the latter too...

 

I don't know about stick settings though...I don't use stick.



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

You can find it by pressing "Win" + R and typing in "%appdata%\Wargaming.net" (without the quotes)  then press enter. That will open a folder and you will see a folder named "World of Warplanes" Inside that folder you will find your preferences file. 

 

You can copy the whole folder over if you wish.

Thank you.  Do you think it is the preferences.xml file?  I opened it and it see mentions of "joystick", "mouse", and lots of "true", "false", "display", etc..

Its in your input_mapping folder in the location that GhostPrime stated.

 

gamepad_direct_control.xml

joustick.xml

mouse_directional.xml

 

These will have your custom bindings.  The others in that folder are the pre-configured bindings.

Ya.  I see I did need to copy ALL directories in that directory as mentioned above.  That got me back to all my preferences after reinstalling.  The preferences.xml is not enough.  It has some stuff in there like sound settings, but not input, as mentioned above..
