your not the only one. all my custom settings are there when i on the menu but as soon as i go in a game they are reset to default. this happened to me since the last update on 2nd july 2013 and i was one of the first ones and now it's been gradually happening to people. i am still waiting for steam to get back to me

My video settings won't save since that update. I have to reset everything everytime I want to play. Whatever they did to cause this, I wish they would fix it!

steam keep coming back to me with crap suggestions to do things to my computer which either dont work or mess up my steam folder and have to reinstall. i keep telling them its them not me but they aint listening so i told them to ♥♥♥♥ of with their ♥♥♥♥ty sugestions and stop bothering me and waisting my life. if everyone else harrassed them then maybe it will give them a wake up call. had enough dealing with them and their dumb solutions that dont work so i will wait

There are config files in your l4d2 folder steam\steamapps\common\left 4 Dead 2\Left4Dead2\cfg\. I set my keys and set config.cfg (in your case config.360.cfg) to what you want it to be, then set the file to read only. This should fix it for you.

yep, been doing this for a year and a half. everytime i start a game i have to go into settings and assign f1 and f2 for voting, m for swap teams and i do t for talk and y for team talk and f3 for spray picture and f4 for screenshot. if i take out the controller and start a game they are there but when the controller is in and the game starts then they go again and have to input them manually again. for a year and a half now everytime i go on to left 4 dead 2 i start a single player game, do these settings then exit and then go into versus etc. everytime i leave the game i have to start over when doing a new one. can you imagine how many times i have done this (twice a day) for a year and half? lol. this does not happen in left 4 dead 1.
