So I set up custom controls and of course a username. For the first game I play everything works fine. However, when the next map loads it changes my username to Player and reverts me back to default controls. I have to completely exit the game and reload for my custom name to work again. Simple disconnecting and choosing a new profile does not work. How can I stop this?

By using the in game interface accessed with the ` button and typing: name newname I found that the game was pointing to a different game folder. It must be left over from a previous install.  C:\Users\Admin\Documents\Battlefield 1942\mods\BF1942\Settings instead of the correct folder being E:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 1942\Mods\bf1942\Settings. I've learned recently that any remnants of a previous install of the game can cause major problems. Including a hanging black screen upon loading.

Video software will often create a folder there to place files and the profile used while recording.   


Not related, but this Wiki is a great Battlefield 1942 resource.
