Hello fellow gamers,

If you’ve been playing the popular game ‘New World‘ and have experienced issues with game freezing that force you to use Alt+F4 or otherwise kill the game, you’ve probably noticed that these crashes can sometimes result in all your settings being reset. This can be a frustrating experience, especially if you have spent a considerable amount of time personalizing your gaming experience.

Fortunately, there is a simple solution to this problem. Your settings file, which stores all your personalized configurations, is located on your computer and can be backed up to prevent any loss. Here is the path to find your settings file:

C:\Users\YOURUSERACCOUNT\AppData\Roaming\AGS\New World\savedata

Please replace ‘YOURUSERACCOUNT’ with your actual user account name on your PC.

Once you navigate to this path, you’ll find a file named usersettings.javsave. This is the precious file that holds all your personalized game settings.

To prevent any future frustration due to game crashes, it is advisable to make a backup of this file. You can do this by simply copying the file and pasting it into a safe location, such as an external hard drive or cloud storage service.

Then, the next time your game crashes and resets your settings, you can easily restore them. Simply replace the usersettings.javsave file in the original location with your backup.

Remember to regularly update your backup file, especially after making significant changes to your game settings, to ensure the most current configurations are saved.

Stay ahead of the game and never lose your settings again with this easy-to-follow guide. Happy gaming!
