So, I got into game, running around with a nice frame rate.
Bumped settings up to ultra. still ran. didn't really look ultra though...
Closed the game.
Opened the game.
I think it's because it's trying to load DX11 stuff.
My card is DX10, GTX260.
Reeeeally need some way to change the settings from outside the game.
I looked up that file someone mentioned earlier but it was too much of a mess for me to work out.
Whups! Opened the wrong file.
I'll report back after tweaking.
Rather than tweak it, I deleted the file. BF4 made a new one with all the default.
So, for you guys, I set everything to Low or Off and quit out.
Here's those settings for you.
Change the resolution(ResolutionHeight, ResolutionWidth) and refresh rate(FullscreenRefreshRate) to what matches your monitor!!!

You ROCK!! I was able to correct an issue where the game was launching in a window but wasnt visible, and when you tried to fullscreen it with ALT-ENTER it locked up, Cheers mate..
I think I got the same problem like you. Everytime I clicked on "video Settings" the game crashed and it said :"APPCRASH bf4.exe". I couldn ´t change the videosettings ingame and even reinstall bf 4, graphic drivers or any other **bleep** you could just imagine didn ´t help. Anyway I found a solution for my problem.
Open the "PROFSAVE_profil" file with texteditor in /documents/Battlefield4/settings.
After this delete all the stuff inside this and click "save"
If you now start the game, it sets the values new and after this i could change my videosettings ingame again.
So if anybody else got this problem that his game crashes if he selects "video settings". This might help.
sorry for bad english
I had this issue where i set my grapics to high for my pc and i just deleted the settings folder in C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Battlefield4 and it solved my issue.
I would personally keep my settings on a stable setting, just to save myself the hassle. Find a preset that is just above or below what you think is good then re-create the settings in Custom preset. Then fine-tune your settings. E.G: If I wanted smoother texture edges then I'd increase the Anti-aliasing level. This works very well with me :D
