FDEV READ: EVERY SINGLE PATCH YOU CHANGE MY BINDINGS!

Dear Fdev,

While I am highly PO'd at you all I am attempting to keep my cool, but every single f"*** time you folks patch this game you screw up every single last custom key binding config I have, for all of my configs, for KeyBoard and mouse, Flight Stick and Hotas, Steam Controller, and xBox controller setups!!!

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW HARD IT IS TO EVEN LAND WHEN ALL THE SUDDEN YOUR MOUSE NO LONGER ROLLS AND PITCH BUT YAWS, AND WHAT WERE ONCE YOUR YAW KEYS IS ALSO A F'ING ROLL!?

Why the F and for the love of God is the patch even messing with my god **** binds!? Whos Bright Idea was that? You folks have came leaps and hurdles over the years and as a veteran I have appreciated many of the changes, tweaks and rolls backs but this Sh7t needs to stop! There is no logical reason why a patch should change, edit, delete, or overwrite any bindings at all!

You Need To Stop This

Sincerely,
Brian M

To save you some of the problems, make backup of your bindings... So that if they get lost, you can restore them.

Here are some sources on this topic:

One thing that i have noticed, is that having several different setup on the same computer can easily confuse the game when one or more of the controllers is not connected when the game starts, as it will quite often revert back on custom configuration to something default. Most of the time, this can be solved by quitting the game, attached the missing controller, and start the game again... And having backups are good if this does not work.
 
Have you put in a ticket to let them know, as I don't have that problem at the moment, all the updates have not reset mine (maybe I'm one of the lucky ones).

Never happened to me.

I do have to rebind after a new install though, and it is indeed a PITA.
Would be awesome if the binds were saved with the account.

The only time it ever happened to me was when I changed joysticks, and that was really expected due to the different button layout so I am not sure why this is happening.
 
Been there a few times, now i ALWAYS go to training school before to login.
I take the first & second school class where you have to ptu nose up/down ect and the next one so you end up with take-off and landing...takes some time BUT much less then do all these setting. If i haven't played for a while i will do the same every time, learned my lesson well i'd say.
