Game Not Finding Hardware It's Been Running On Since Launch


For the last two days in a row, V2 has reverted back to factory settings, resetting all my keybinds, settings, FoV, uninstalling mods, etc. Each time I enter the Keep, I get the monologue for entering the keep for the first time. Luckily, I haven’t lost any progress (all players still at level 35, all my reds intact, etc.), but it’s rather annoying and it used to not happen at all before the update. Now I’m worried it’ll happen every time I launch.

I would love to know if anyone else is having the same issue, and if so, how did you fix it? Thanks for your time.


It sounds like your user_settings.config is either becoming corrupted or has the incorrect privileges. Please ensure your user_settings.config is not set to ‘Read Only’ by:

  1. Press the Windows key + R
  2. Enter %appdata% and select ‘OK’
  3. Navigate to \AppData\Roaming\Fatshark\Vermintide 2
  4. Right-click ‘user_settings.config’
  5. Select ‘Properties’
  6. Ensure the ‘General’ tab is selected
  7. Ensure the ‘Read Only’ checkbox is not checked
