A GUI for the config.ini seems like a good third-party project, especially for a relatively inexperienced programmer.

I know that the option to change at least part of the config.ini using a GUI is available in IL-2 Manager PF, but it's getting very old and doesn't allow you to change all options. Another stand-alone product which alters config.ini using a GUI is IL2set, which is part of the IL2 game.

It would be cool if TD could actually integrate complete control of config.ini as a GUI interface within IL2 itself, but they've done so much to improve the GUI for 4.13 that it's possible that they've already done what we're wishing for.

My programming experience is incredibly old and BASIC (in more ways that one), but it's not that hard to allow editing of a text file database via a simple computer program. Likewise, it's also not that hard to get a computer program to report some piece of info as a text message or turn off messaging. Programming stuff to move realistically, or adding new functions to a program is the hard stuff. And bug-stomping is just an exercise in alternating frustration and tedium.
