Re: battlefield V delux edition don't save settings, HELP ME PLZ.

You could try checking if any of the settings files are set to read only. They're located at C:\Users\[Username]\Documents\Battlefield V\settings. Right click a file and click properties - the read only button should be unchecked.

If that doesn't work you can try deleting the config files. BFV will auto generate new ones the next time you open the game.

2 problems with my BFV

★★★★ Novice



Problem 1: Every time I start the game, It will load, then ask me to adjust brightness, then select what kind of speaker device I am using (speaker, headphones, etc.) and then it makes me watch a long cinematic video that I CAN'T SKIP, and eventually makes me parachut over Norway and play some kind of campaign...How do I get straight to the menu ????? This is very annoying


Problem 2: When I eventually get to that menu, it says that I am offline and not connected to the servers...I can play Rainbow six Siege without any problem so It's not MY connection...what's happening ?


Thanks !

  • In the NVIDIA Control Panel, go to Adjust image settings with preview, in the main windows choose Use my preference and move the slider all the way left (performance), click Apply at the bottom right.
  • In-game, go to the Advanced video settings and turn GPU memory restriction ON
  • Test out how this goes and report back here please
