BF4 settings won't save

★★★★ Novice

My settings reset every time I quit the game. I tried BF4 settings editor but it didn't help, I have all settings files. I think my BF4 won't load those settings files. Pls help.

Hero

Settings are saved to C:\Users\yourUsername\Documents\Battlefield 4\settings

make sure your Windows user has permissions to write to that folder and the files in it. You might also make sure Origin.exe and bf4.exe start with administrator rights:

I have the same problem with BF1. I don't know how, but sometimes the game find the saves, and i can play the game normally, have the single player campaign saves, can play multiplayer. However, when It works properly, still i can't find BF1 saves folder in documents folder. I followed all of the steps, clean start, reinstall origin, bf1, unable cloud saves, update drivers, disable dx12, run origin and bf1 as administrator, antivirus exception for bf1. But I have the same problem every day, when i start origin and the game first time, it doesn't find my saves, only recognise my account name in the game (and can't go online). After few trying, like 15mins misery (do most of the steps (see above)), then suddenly the game starts properly and I can play like nothing happened.
