    InputBindings Save Running Config in StartUpConfig

    Hello guys,

    i am building a rebind system for input and i am having troubles, that the changes i do during gameplay are lost when closing the game.

    Here is a code snippet of what i am doing inside my Controller Class (Actionmapping rebind example):

    EDIT: In PostInitComp() i do the following for PlayerInput

    for (FInputActionKeyMapping& EachAction : PlayerInput->ActionMappings)
    			// compare ActionMapping Keys with the selected Actionname in UI param
    			if (EachAction.ActionName == InputName)
    				// replace old Key with new Key
    				EachAction.Key = inNewKey;				
    				// Save Changes in Saved/Config/Windows/Input.ini
    				// Flush Rebuild. false-> dont restore to default
    				// Rebuild List for Blueprints/UMG
    				return true;
    However, this is working quite well as long as i stay in editor. Closing the game will discard all my changes and
    on restart the old input bindings are loaded.

    I think it has something to do with the config hierarchy but i dont want to mess around with GetDefault or even GetMutableDefault like
    Rama is presenting in his Tutorial. EDIT: But i really dont want to say he is doing it wrong or something, without his Tutorials and i wouldnt be
    at the point where i am that fast

    I also noticed that after saving, the Input.ini only hold info about DebugExecBindings like F1-12 and so on but no Action or Axis Mappings.

    Any suggestions?

    best regards

    Hi, I'm having same troubles.
    If I use "PlayerInput->UpdateDefaultConfigFile();" it saves only debug key bindigs.
    Did you manage to resolve this?


      In source code I found this in UPlayerInput class:
      TArray<struct FKeyBind> DebugExecBindings;
      /** This player's version of the Axis Properties */
      TArray<struct FInputAxisConfigEntry> AxisConfig;
      /** This player's version of the Action Mappings */
      TArray<struct FInputActionKeyMapping> ActionMappings;
      /** This player's version of Axis Mappings */
      TArray<struct FInputAxisKeyMapping> AxisMappings;
      So to resolve this You can create custom class to save bindigs to config, or add UPROPERTY(config) in UPlayerInput to AxisMappings and ActionMappings.
