BF4 How to change video settings outside of game?

★★★★ Novice

basically as the subject says, I want to change the video settings outside of game, as when I load, it just freezes, like fps drops to below 0, I have the minimum specs and even a bit higher than minimum but it still doesn't start, is there a way to change settings, if so, how?

The settings file is located in:

C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Battlefield 4\settings

locate the file:

PROFSAVE_profile


Open that file in a texteditor like wordpad or the like.

Whatever I try it keeps on being the same.. can anyone post numbers for lowest setting? I can't do it without knowing what I need to type and where
