    So I start my game a few minutes ago and i get the "controller detected" message. This is weird because my wheel is already set up and I was just playing this game a few hours ago. So I go to my contoller options only to to see all of the profiles I set up for this game are gone. What would cause this. I spent a lot of time setting up my FFB and buttons and it annoys the crap out of me that i have to do that all over. Has this happened to anyone else.
    I checked it the controller folder and my profiles all look like this DTM.rcs.old_1. They all now have a "OLD_1" extension and once opened say "nullnullnull........"

    Not sure if this works, or even is recommended doing (things are marked as old for a reason).

    You can try this:
    • Make a copy of the controller file that now has an old extension.
    • Right click on the file and rename to something that ends with .rcs.
    • Try opening it.
    Does this work finding your previous settings?

    I forgot to mention that I tried this. All it does is create a "keyboard" profile ingame. And It doesnt allow me to change any ffb settings. I tried this with all 3 of my profiles and I ended up with 3 extra keyboard profiles.

    Im definitely backing up now after this. I'm actually in luck because i took screenshots of my settings one day to help a friend out. Its still a pain in the ass to have to redo everything but at least i know what it was now.

    I wonder if your PC assigned a different USB ID to your wheel, R3E then assumed a different controller. I had this happen when I connected my new pedals, my wheel initialized after the pedals at boot with a different ID.
