Game information:

Battlefield 3 (commonly abbreviated to BF3) is a first-person shooter action video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. The game was released in the USA on October 25, 2011 on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and EA Mobile confirmed a port for the iOS platform. It does not support versions of Windows prior to Windows Vista. It is a direct sequel to 2005's Battlefield 2, and the eleventh installment in the Battlefield franchise. The PC release is exclusive to EA's Origin platform.



1. Goto your "Mydocuments"-folder (Start->"Documents" or "MyDocuments" ) and look for "Battlefield 3"
2. Go into the "Battlefield 3"-folder and also into the "settings"-folder, where you will see 4 files. Look for "PROF_SAVE_profile"
3. Copy your "PROF_SAVE_profile" to somewhere safe and delete or rename the one from the "settings"-folder
4. Open BF3 R3H4B
5. go into folder "Copy to mydocuments- Battlefield 3- settings- folder" and copy the "PROF_SAVE_profile" from the zip file to your "settings"-folder in your Mydocuments

Note: This will reset your Display and audio settings! You will have to re-configure them once after starting the game but don't touch or reset the control settings! If you did this correctly the joystick controls in the game options should be empty.

6. Import the .pin from the zip
7. Enjoy the game

BTW: If you have cloud saving enabled in BF3, you will need to select "Use local data" upon after making the required changes to your settings.

QWERTZ-keyboard users: Go into the game control options and change all references from the "Z"-key to the "Y"-key (on all tabs) to get crouch working properly.

Hope you like it.
