    I'll be leaving hell (work) shortly. I have a 4.5 hour drive, but once I get home I'll start working on the update. I'll have it live tonight or tomorrow. I'm also working on a new Battlelog browser. :toast:

    New! BF4 Config Utility v1.4

    Change Log v1.4

    1. This version brings the Utiltiy over from "BF4 Beta" to "BF4".
    2. Added a new "Console Comands" Tab
    3. Added a direct Console Command editor in the "Console Commands" tab. This editor is directly linked to the "user.cfg" file where Console commands you want to run on start are stored.

    Get it here! and it's in the OP.

    There may be software for your logitech that would help, do you have the Logitech gaming software installed?

    Mindweaver did you ban me for posting 8====D to bump the thread? I was banned for "spam" because apparently you deleted all my other posts on here so I had to argue to get unbanned cuz it looked like my only post.

    Was just bumping the thread hoping for some kind of update on progress, not sure why you delete my posts but can't update people :(

    Yea, I didn't put a lot of thought into it when I saw what you posted buddy. In the future buddy just ask for an update. I've been really busy the last few months working 12 and 14 hour days. Anyway enough about that.. hehe I've got a big update coming and I almost finished it Wednesday, but ran out of time..

    The tool does not work with the x64 version of the game, can you provide a x64 binary?

    That's odd, because I use x64 and it works fine. Can you share the path to your "
    Battlefield 4" folder in origins? The x64 executable file "bf4.exe" is actually located in the
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\" directory with the x86 executable file "bf4_x86.exe".

    In the error message you attach the problem is my utility is not finding your "user.cfg" file. So, I'm assuming the "BF4 Config Utility" is opening correctly, but just not able to save the file?

    it seems the problem resides in the fact that i don't have such file anywhere on my system. So if the file is not there in the first place, it can't create a new one; i'm not sure it would even work at this point, but it's worth a shot to try and see if i can use an empty one

    My "BF4 Config Utility" will create the file if it hasn't been created. What version of my tool are you using? The newest version v1.5 will create that file. It's possible that you are not running the "BF4 Config Utility" as an administrator. Before opening the "BF4 Config Utility", right click on it and run as administrator.

    Hey Mindweaver. Thanks for the utility. I used the one for Bf3 and it was great. Good work.
    I have the latest V.1.5 for BF4.

    Some questions:

    1) Why do you have the options for aim assist and deadzone for a PC Utility? There is not aim assist with Keyboard and mouse.

    2) Console anti alias - what is this?

    3) Are transparent shadows on by default?

    Thank you

    Thanks for using my Utility buddy. Now to your questions. :toast:

    1. Both of those settings are in the config file by default. I can't confirm, but I believe aim assist works only in single player and only with a gamepad. Deadzone works with joysticks and gamepads.
    2. Console anti alias is the game menu. Turning it off will improve performance.
    3. Yes, transparent shadows are on by default.

    ok, now i understand what the problem is. The fact is that the utility does not load my current configuration, and i try to hit the button "backup", i recieve that error message. The probable cause might be the x64/x86 difference. I run the game on x64 and it caused me many problems with additional apps.

    Oh I see. Hummm.. Try doing a regular "Save" and that should create the "user.cfg" file then you can back it up. I'm close to releasing the next release, I'll try to recreate your problem and fix it in time for the next release. Thanks for your help buddy! :toast:
