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.

DirectX error.

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.

 

Update:

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.

NOTE!!!!!!!

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..

Hey guys,

 

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. 

 

greeting Kamikatzekeks

sorry for bad english

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
