    Delete the folder X:\users\UserName\Documents\My Games\America's Army Proving Grounds\Config

    Where X is the drive letter and UserName is your account name.

    If that doesn't help, then delete the entire AAPG directory in "My Games" (careful, if you have published maps, this will erase them).


    In life, there is no respawn... why should there be in a game?

    tried that and when I get to rebuilding shader on downloading the maps the game crashes.

    well that was a failure. even turned down the video settings. I can no longer save my user name at all video settings will not save. Please help. I have played this game since it started and love it. please don't leave a bad impression on me about this game.

    Your settings being lost are most likely a function of something stopping the game from saving to the config file. Make sure that the config files in \Documents\My Games\America's Army Proving Grounds\Config are not set to read only.

    found the problem there is an option in windows defender that was blocking things. It is working at this time.

    Maybe try to reinstall the game or backup the game's files by right clicking on the game in your Steam Library>Properties>Local Files> Verify Integrity of game files

    Whatever you do, you cannot outrun the devil.
