configuring Cumulus.ini

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

configuring Cumulus.ini

Post by ruggb »

Is there a dashboard in MX to use to configure the INI file for a new install?


What is the recommended way to do this besides researching 1140 entries?

If this is a total new install then you will need to use each of the items in the Settings tab and go through each item, including any sub items.
If you already have a cumulus.ini you can copy that in CumulusMX and renaming as Cumulus.ini (capital C).

Paul is right, there are only a few settings required to get up and running, and they are all set up via the user interface.
You should only need to delve into the ini file to tweak a few customisations.
