The game doesn't save the settings

★★★★ Novice

Hello everyone, i have the next problem:

Everytime i launch the game i have to configurate again and watch the intro. The game doesn't save any change that i make, and this is really annoying...
Anyone knows how to reapir this? I already repair the game trough the origin repair tool, and try with other helps (like desactivate the Controlled folder Access, and other things).

Thanks.

You will want to add bfv.exe and bfvtrial.exe in the Battlefield V installation location as well.

Glad to hear it worked out Standard smile

 

Also, for the rest of you, OneDrive is known to interfere with files in the documents folder, so you might want to try to make a second local Windows account as a troubleshooting step.

EDIT: This is a workaround, it treats the symptom but not the cause of the error. I suggest trying the other things I proposed as solutions in the thread first.

 

Oh, I almost forgot, in the beta there was also reported the following workaround:

Once you go exit the game after having set your settings, try going to:

Documents\Battlefield V\settings

and if it's there delete the:

"_tmp" part

of the

"PROFSAVE_tmp" file.

This might also do it.

 

If this is your issue then this would have to be repeated every time you change settings.

go to Documents/Battlefield V/settings and renaming PROFSAVE_tmp to PROFSAVE
