Dying Light Settings Keep Resetting & Not Saving Issue Fix

So, what to do if your Dying Light 1 Enhanced Edition settings are not saving? To begin with, a disclaimer. You are doing this at your own risk, so you need to be aware that there’s always a chance that something is going to go wrong when you fiddle around the game files like this. As such, the best thing to start with is by making a backup of the “C:\Users\\Documents\DyingLight” folder. After that, go to the directory where the game has been installed. Look for the DyingLightGame.exe file. Create a desktop shortcut of that file by right-clicking on it and selecting the “Send to Desktop (Create Shortcut)” option.

Rename this shortcut and right-click on it and go to Properties. Under the Shortcut tab, add the following line to the Target field, after the text that is already in there -epicenv=Prod -EpicPortal -epicusername=”test”. Press Ok to save this. Run the game from that desktop shortcut. Change the game’s settings to how you want them to be. Quit the game and then restart it. If you have done everything correctly, the game should now save these game settings correctly and no longer reset them. We’d like to thank Reddit user Slluxx for coming up with this solution.
