For whatever reason, I do not have a userconfig.cfg file. Nothing I have done so far has completely restored the file (in order):

  • Taking another game's userconfig.cfg file and putting it into the TF2 files (specifically, Fortress Forever),
  • Deleting TF2 from my computer via Steam, and
  • Manually deleting all local TF2 files.

The latter option has done some level of restoration, specifically, a one-time deal where my binds, graphic, and other options saved. Everything since then, namely screen resolution, binds, graphic settings, etc. has not saved because the userconfig.cfg is not present.

How do I recover my config file if nothing seems to work? If it helps, my PC is a "HP Pavilion Desktop - 510-a010"

  • Doesn't TF2 use config.cfg for user settings?

    If you have game settings you want to ensure on startup, you can also use autoexec.cfg Feb 10 '19 at 21:36
  • Can I ask why you need userconfig.cfg? What does it contain? Feb 11 '19 at 20:13
  • check you haven't got -autoconfig set in your launch options.
