View Full Version : How to reset XSI to its defaut settings?
09-26-2004, 12:24 AM
I am a XSI newbie and I tend to make a mess. Is there a way to reset the default settings, a command, or a file to delete, like the 3dsmax.ini in 3dsmax?

Good question. I think I screwed something up too, and would like to reset things. For some reason I am unable to open any scene files, even the default xsi samples.

All you should have to do is delete(or rename) the User folder, which is normally found at "C:\users\[USERNAME]\Softimage\XSI_4.0".
This is where any preferences, keymappings, custom layouts, toolbars, custom shaders, etc. etc. will be stored.
If you've made custom layouts, toolbars, etc... that you don't want to remake, you should copy those files (and any associated files, like bitmaps) to a separate directory first. Then copy and paste them into the new user directory structure that XSI will create.
I lost a few layouts that way. :sad:
