Key Binding Fix - BF3 Carry over.

Hey Guys

I figured out how to transfer over my BF3 config / key bindings to BF4.

Part A

1) Navigate to: C:\Users\User\Documents\Battlefield 3\settings
2) Copy file: PROF_SAVE_profile
3) Navigate to: C:\Users\User\Documents\Battlefield 4\settings
3) Paste copied file: PROF_SAVE_profile
4) Re-name file: PROFSAVE_profile - To anything you like. I suggest keeping this just incase.
5) Re-name file PROF_SAVE_profile you copied from BF3 directory to PROFSAVE_profile

The End.

Please note, there may be settings within the original BF4 file that obviously won't be transferred across. To ensure all relevant settings from the original BF4 are retained -
I would suggest doing the following:

Part B

1) After you have completed Part A enter a game as normal.
2) Alt + esc from the game and navigate to: C:\Users\User\Documents\Battlefield 4\settings
3) Re-name the original BF4 file which you should have kept safe - back to it's original name: PROFSAVE_profile
4) Discard the file you copied from the BF3 directory
5) Re-enter Game
6) Navigate to game Menu / Key Bindings and make a temporary key binding change
7) Click back and select save

The End.

I will not be held liable for any issues/errors that arise from the above.

using my bf3 config now and works just fine. can finally use end del etc. and use my proper heli/jet config.

Be aware tho, if your bf3 config changes any of the hardcoded controls (q for example) then you CANNOT change ANYTHING again in-game, without crashing the game.

This isn't a problem tho, since you can always change settings in bf3 and then copy them over. Just don't be surprised, if your game crashes, that's all :)

oh and making it read-only is probably a good idea , too :)

Make sure you notice the Underline that makes the difference. PROFSAVE not PROF_SAVE , missed it the early trial before succession.

another work around too.

normal login on Origin. But then set Origin offline. Click BF4 to start.
(Similar to play BF3 campaign offline).

You even get to see the short introduction video of BF4, which is unreleased. Afterwards press ENTER then you got to choose Options and Quit.
Options - do your settings

Nicer since you can know for sure it saves completely, within application and crashless. One thing you can't do is test drive your settings cause the ingame campaing isn't ready yet.

There you go another way to change your keybinding settings, parallel to the instruction above. Cheers.
