Re: BF4 PC KEY BINDING PROBLEMS

This is a problem with the file:

 

<DRIVE>:\USERS\<USERNAME>\My Documents\Battlefield 4\Settings\PROFSAVE_profile

 

It's getting too large for BF4 to process because BF4 is writing thousands of duplicate copies of each key binding to the file, making it 100's of thousands of lines long.

 

Edit this file (I used excel because I'm familiar with it)  and look for lines like the one below:

 

GstKeyBinding.default.ConceptSpectatorSquadDown.1.axis 24

 

Remove any lines that contain a middle number greater than 2.. There will be thousands of them, so you'll need to find an automated way to do it.

I brought the file in to Excel as a "." delimited file, wrote a formula that put a "remove" string in to a cell if the middle number was greater than 2, then sorted on that cell and deleted everything that contained the word "remove" on the line, then strung it all back together and pasted it in to a text file, then replaced the original PROFSAVE_Profile with my newly minted de-duped one.. Works fine

 

You'll have to do this every time you change your key bindings, so get them right and then leave them alone.

Thank you for the pointer. I have written a command line tool to do exactly as you describe and it works (load times also improved).

 

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download/bekk4nvn2o3rrpx/BF4ProfileFix.zip

On Battlelog: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/forum/threadview/2955065670099610076/

 

MS .NET 4.5 Framework required.

 

From the read me...

 

Use this utility AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Place this in your BF4 Beta settings folder (i.e. C:\Users\%USERNAME%\My Documents\Battlefield 4 Beta\Settings\).

Run in between restarts while changing your BF4 settings and binds, it will clean the duplicate entries out that cause BF4 to hang while updating it.

A backup of the original is saved as PROFSAVE_profile.BAK.

All discarded lines are written to PROFSAVE_profile.DEL.

Use this utility AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Re: BF4 PC KEY BINDING PROBLEMS

The youtube fix worked for me. I was not able to equip the MBT LAW and now I can. All keyboard bindings are same setup as I had in BF3.

 

AWESOME!!!!
