Brief description of the issue:
Yesterday no problem.
Today after restarting PC, I start FS:
It asks for disc, so I close FS
Restart FS, all OK. I close FS, to see if stable
On restart, it asks to set the settings as on the first install!!! I do so.
Then I check: the settings are changed, so I have to reset them as of yesterday.
Fortunately joystick and profile are intact so far
I restart a 4th time: it asks for settings as first install again! See pics below…
What is going on???

EDIT: I restart PC, and when I start FS it asks me again for settings as first install, see pics below…

What has gone wrong? Why does FS keep askin g me settings on restart? I was fine yesterday!

I have the same problèm with a web version

What do you mean by “with a web version”?

Did it start today?

store version, and this is the first time that this has happened, for me. At each start, same problem.
It happened in August, but only once, to a friend.

Ah OK you mean from the Microsoft Store, not from Steam.

It’s as if on closing FS can’t save the settings, then on restart it has to ask the settings.

I don’t know what happened with “insert game disc” either!!! It asked for it once…

This has been mentioned already.

I’m getting the settings reset on every start as well, just started happening today. Very frustrating. Tried signing out and back into Xbox app, but no help. I did see an automatic update to Gaming Services was installed today. Could that have something to do with it? I have never had this issue before, and I’ve been a user since the release date.

I’m having the same problem as of today, as well.
Luckily it seems like the control assignment profiles are intact, just need to be reselected.

This was related to the xbox gaming services which has been corrected. For reference:
