Setting your data centre manually in Hyper Scape

Hyper Scape automatically matches players with the data centre with which they have the best ping. It is possible, however, for players to select a preferred region themselves.

To manually select your data centre:
•  Open File Explorer. 
• Navigate to C:\Users\<User>\Documents\My Games\Hyper Scape\Ubisoft Connect ID. 
Your Ubisoft Connect ID is a long alphanumeric string unique to your Ubisoft account. You will see multiple folders if you have played on more than one account.
•  Delete the folders and start the game from your account. You should now see a single folder for your account containing a default GameSettings.ini file.
•  Right-click the GameSettings.ini file.
•  Choose Open with and select Notepad. A file will open containing a list of settings.
•  Scroll to the bottom of the document. You will see:

;DataCenterHint => 
;    default (ping based)
;    cus     'us central'
;    sbr      'brazil south'
;    weu    'europe west'
;    eas     'asia east'
;    seas    'asia south east'
;    eau     'australia east'
;    wja     'japan west'       


All lines with a semicolon in front are a list of the possible data centre choices. The bottom line (DataCenterHint=default) is the selection currently set to default, which means the data centre will be chosen automatically.

•  Change default to the data centre of your choosing. 

For example: DataCenterHint=weu (West Europe) or DataCenterHint=wus (West US).

•  Save the file, then start the game.
