We have just released a preview version of our BF4 Settings Editor! This program allows you to customise your Battlefield 4 settings without having to launch the game. This can save you a lot of time, not only because the game can take a long time to load, but also because you need to log into both Origin and Battlelog before you can start it! With BF4 Settings Editor, there’s no need to worry about the round ending while you’re changing your settings, or getting kicked for being idle.
You may remember that we had several popular tools for Battlefield 3, including a BF3 Settings Editor. We have built on what we learnt from producing that tool, and have rewritten most of the code from the ground up to be more stable, reliable, and optimised. Many of the feature requests we got for BF3 Settings Editor have been included in BF4 Settings Editor, and all of the known bugs should be fixed.
Please note that this is a preview release! Whilst we have been working on the framework for this tool for quite a while, we have only actually had access to the Battlefield 4 Beta for a few days. This means we haven’t had much time to implement everything that we intend to. As a result, some new options are currently unavailable, such as the spectator key bindings. Furthermore, this preview release version will only work with the Battlefield 4 Beta.
We are still working on this program and will be continuing to release updates for it. The full version of BF4 Settings Editor will include the ability to easily share configurations with others online via a special code, as well as the ability to set multiple key bindings for the same control. Stay tuned for more details!
The majority of game settings are supported, including key bindings with keyboard, mouse, gamepad, joystick, and Xbox 360 controller support.
For your safety, a backup of your settings will be automatically created when you first run BF4 Settings Editor. You can create additional backups at any time with a click of a button.
A built-in profile manager allows you to save and restore different configurations on demand. For example, you might create a profile for all low settings, and another profile for ultra settings.
You can easily configure console commands to be automatically entered into the game on start-up.
You can import your older Battlefield 3 settings into Battlefield 4 with a single click. Note that mouse sensitivity settings are currently not imported, as they work differently in the two games. We’re looking into this for a future version.
BF4 Settings Editor detects file errors when loading your settings, and can automatically repair them for you if you wish. You will be able to see details about each of these errors to make an informed decision. No more corrupt settings files!
Two screenshots of this program are included below. If you would like to see more, then check out the screenshots page on our BF4 Settings Editor microsite.
This tool only really has two system requirements.
Operating system: For the greatest user experience, you should be running either Windows 7 or Windows 8. However, you can still use this with Windows Vista, as long as you have at least Service Pack 2 installed.
.NET Framework: As this program is written for the .NET Framework 4.5, you will need that installed. If you are using the setup exe (which is recommended), you don’t have to worry about it; it’ll all be taken care of for you. If you are using the zip archive, you can download the .NET Framework 4.5 here.
If you would like to download this program and try it out, then head over to the downloads page on our website. We recommend that you choose the setup exe option, but you can also download the program files as a zip archive if you prefer.
This tool includes an automatic update checker, so you will be notified within the program whenever a new update is available (unless you choose to disable this function). This means that you can stay up-to-date with the latest features and fixes.
