Game profile names need to be identically named when transferring saves to different accounts or computers. If they are not, then you will need to rename the save file into one that has been 'recognised' by the game. This applies to transferring save data in any combination between computers, profiles, Steam and Origin accounts.

  2. Set desired field of view (recommended value: 60-70)
  3. Set a keybind for Widescreen Fixer
