Re: Video Settings Causing reset on change. Makes me restart Prologue.

I still wonder why users should go back to the oldschool configuration of having Documents not saved in OneDrive or on a server via folder redirection instead of getting a fix from DICE.

The only thing that would make sense is an exception for the folder protection but the root cause must be something different as I don't have folder protection activated but folder redirection to my local server which is working properly with all games even BF1 but not BF V. Guess where the error should be fixed Wink

Yeah EA needs to fix it. And there have other games also have the same problem with one driven, but they fix it already. also about your problem, I think its Permission got limited, you can try close antivirus software or right click ,property ,securit. Then see how many groups have Permissions to archive. Regularly, it should have three groups that have Permissions to archive(system, your username . admin) . if one of them miss, you need to click advanced , and Add to groups. after that you need to edit all groups to allow them to have full Permissions. then it might help some.

Re: The game doesn't save the settings

You can try my method. You also have to rename PROFSAVE_tmp to PROFSAVE. 2nd step: while the game is launching in the beginning you should to delete file PROFSAVE_tmp when it is appearing. In my case It appeared 4-5 times.

I've tried everything without any luck. My PROFSAVE file gets updated but prologue is still playing and can't find the "_temp" some mention.

I have same problem as well. Game restarts from the beginning every time i start bfv and doesn't save settings. I have tried run origin and bfv as an administrator, reinstalling both and checked my firewall settings. Nothing helps. 

 

Bf4 and bf1 save settings just fine, but this problem seems to be occur only with bfv.
