    1. Profiles are disabled for now. I'll get them going tomorrow!
    2. If you have Origins up then you may have to click save a few times, but it will save and confirm that it did!

    Change Log v1.1
    1. Profiles now work.
    2. Added Controller Vibration.
    3. Now when you disable Anti-aliasing will auto disable "Anti-aliasing Post".

    Change Log v1.2
    1. Fixed an issue with "War Tapes", when selected would cause corrupt Sound in game. War Tapes plays correctly now. Big thanks to erixx for the heads up

    Change Log v1.3
    1. New 5.1 setting!
    2. Added call outs to settings.
    3. Changed both Profile config and Config File display text to richtext format. Now you can see the settings easier. I plain to turn the Config File Text display into a Real Text Editor, and not just a crappy notepad viewer. This new display will send the return carriage, and not show it.
    4. New screen shots of the General Tab and Config File tab have been added to the OP.

    Change Log v1.4
    1. Fixed an issue not being able to save when selecting "Auto" on "Overall Graphics".
    2. Added Vertical Look (Invert Mouse) setting.
    3. Added Mouse sensitivity setting.
    4. New Advanced Tab layout.
    5. Uploaded new Advanced Tab pic.


    Change Log v1.5
    1. Removed a change added in v1.1 "Now when you disable Anti-aliasing will auto disable "Anti-aliasing Post"." -Thanks WhiteZero
    2. Added new setting name for "5.1" to "5.1 Surround Sound" on the General Tab.
    3. Added New "Transparent Shadows" setting on the Graphics Tab. This setting is not in the Game Settings.
    4. Added New "Enlighten" setting on the Graphics Tab. This setting is not in the Game Settings.
    5. Added New "Invert Flight" setting on the Advanced Tab.
    6. Added new Link to this thread in the Website Tab
    7. Added More Call outs for settings.
    8. Added a Donate button. Thanks again to the community for wanting this.
    9. Uploaded New pics and added to OP.
    10. New Graphics Tab Layout.

    Change Log v1.6
    1. Added "Disable Mouse Sensitivity" for users that are having issues with this setting. I'm still researching this issue, but I can't get the error to show. It saves correctly for me. Sadly I spent most of my day trying to resolve this issue and wasn't able to add the Brightness and Contrast settings. I really want to add Contrast to the Utility, but I don't want to add another slider until more people tell me that the "Mouse Sensitivity" Set works for them. I would greatly appreciate it if users would post if it's working for them. Thanks Gamers!
    2. Removed the Code1 Error message. I tested this today as well to ensure it saved every time, and did not crash. I'm happy to say no crashes!


    Change Log v1.7
    1. Changed "5.1 Surround Sound" to "5.1 / 7.1 Surround Sound. - Thanks Sgt.Denzil!
    2. Now "Your Sound System" settings remember your settings when enabling or disabling "5.1 / 7.1 Surround Sound".
    3. Now the "Desired Horizontal FOV" saves your last setting instead of reverting back to "90".
    4. Added the ability to make direct changes in the Config Tab Window.
    5. Added a "Save" button on the Config Tab to save changes made directly in the Config Tab Window.
    6. Added a "Undo" button on the Config Tab to revert back to your previous settings and not just "Reset" back to default.
    7. Changed the Call out on the "Donate" button.
    8. Added what version to the top of the "BF3 Config Utility". - Thanks Druuge Fuel!
    9. Added new Config Tab pic to Screen shot section[/COLOR][/SIZE]

    Hi Mind weaver!

    1st is 1st, thank you for the nice app!

    I installed it yesterday. It is really nice. Just one bug?: I changed my sound settings within your app. (from headphones to war tapes) Then when I played I had sonic chaos like the end of the world party! All noises distorted.

    I changed this setting back and fore in the game and it is fine again.

    Thanks! :toast: I'll check to see what's going on with the sound. I've not put mine on war tapes yet.. I'll test it out on mine. Thanks for the heads up! :toast:

    Quick question regarding the audio options on this game. I can't seem to get it to force 5.1 with the settings I'm going with.

    Should I have it set on hi-fi or home cinema or some other setting to get my rear speakers involved?

    I don't have a 5.1 system.. but from what i can tell in the config file it's the "home cinema" and "War Tapes". Try those settings, and if you would let me know. I've found some more audio settings that i'm going to add in hopefully on the next build. I have to test them first. My wife and I are going to a Halloween party tonight, and I have a lot to do tomorrow. I won't be able to put out a new version until Monday, but when i do i hope to add more audio features. :toast: Thanks for using the config utility! :respect:

    I registered here to say I appreciate this utility. :toast:

    Question though, can you explain the FOV function? What's different between this and the FOV function in the game's menu screen? I'm not quite understanding the Horizontal FOV, independent FOV, the calculate vertical FOV. Also, is your program a solution to the locked FOV in Single Player?

    Thanks again for the utility, I recommend the next update have a help box or possibly be able to hover over things to get an ALT-TEXTish explanation.
     
    Mindweaver says thanks.
