How to uninstall FS4

  • Hello.

    I have a problem for several days with the "Esc" key. I can't access the menu anymore. I would like to uninstall FS4 and then reinstall it but I don't know how to proceed !!! could you help me ?


  • Hi Daniel,

    Before going trough the reinstallation process, I would try to delete (backup before) the main.mcf file in the user document folder. It will be writen new at the next startup and all settings will be default.

    If nothing helps; On Steam, right click on Fs4 (left side where all the Steam products are listed) -> Manage -> Deinstall
    (Or something similar. I have the German version installed, sorry)


    Jet-Pack (IPACS)

    Jan, I gave it a try and assigned an other key under Controls -> General -> Application -> Back Naturally, it worked, but now it's not accepting Esc for setting it back anymore.

  • The game controller mappings/assignments are saved to the gc-map.mcf, not the main.mcf. These two files are located in windows user documents (C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\Aerofly FS 4) and deleting or moving them somewhere else restores the default settings.

    Uninstalling won't reset these settings, they are user specific settings.
