For each Simulator you will need to make sure there is a path set, more details can be found at: Client:Settings#File_Paths
NOTE: MSFS We will be requiring the location of your Community & Official Folder, all others should be pointed to the root directory of the simulator.
Step 5: First Time Configuration Wizard (Step 2)
On this window you will be asked to choose your preferred settings.
Log Level: How much detail do you want in your logs, During diagnostics we will ask this to be increased via settings to enhanced.

Simbrief UN: This is your simbrief Username/UserID
Server: Choose a server from the list with a low ping (Name - Status - Ping - Users)
