cant save or load settings. no error

Hi, I’m new to game development.

I’m trying to save user’s settings but failing without any errors. I have tried all the different approaches I could find online.
Here are the solutions I tried [1][1] [2][2] [3][3]
I can not figure out what is wrong. I get no errors or warnings. I’m using blueprints.

Here is my current setup:
main level blueprint:

custom saveGame class:

Custom Game Instance Event Graph:

Custom Game Instance has 2 functions:
Load settings:

Save settings:

Loading attempt:

Saving attempt:

Updating value to be saved:

My current setup is what I got through following ([this][9]) guide.

It would mean the world to me if anyone can point me in the right direction. I’m new to game dev and this is a dream of mine. Thanks in advance!

What if you add a delay before loading?

still not working. added 1 second delay before load.
