Game configuration doesn't save


Recommended Posts

* Graphics/Exploit/Other

* Win10 Steam

* Mods: Russian Language Pack

* Version: rev. 222215 win32_steam

* Steps to reproduce

  1. Enter the game
  2. Change any settings(for example, resolution)
  3. Re-enter the game
  4. All changed settings will be lost

* So if i try to change any in-game settings, after exit they'll be lost. All game progress saves OK. Any tips?

Hey @Aksamit, welcome to the forums. Can you confirm whether or not your Windows User Account is set as an Administrator? If it isn't, try and set the Don't Starve application to Run as Administrator. Go to Steam\SteamApps\common\dont_starve\bin and right click the properties of dontstarve_steam click the Compatibility tab and enable the option called "Run this program as administrator." If I recall correctly, when the game doesn't save your applied settings, it usually means the game doesn't have access to the Documents folder where the settings.ini file is.

Secondly, if that still doesn't work go to C:\Users\Username\Documents\Klei\DoNotStarve and edit the file called settings.ini with Notepad. Manually change the settings there but also make sure that the game is closed while you are editing this file. Once you save the new settings to the settings.ini, open the game again and see if it worked.

Third option is from steam utilizing the -autoconfig Launch Options feature of steam itself. Method Here: Using Launch Settings for Video and Display Problems.

I hope that helps, cheers.
