The most common cause of issues like this is the games config files being write protected, so the game cannot update them.
You can find these files at:
C:\EGS\Maneater\Maneater\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor (Or your variation of where you have the Epic Game Store installed).
Make sure the files and folders in this directory are not write protected. To do this:
- Right click on the WindowsNoEditor folder and select properties from the drop down menu
- On the General tab of this properties window make sure the Read Only box is NOT selected
- Follow these steps for the .ini files inside of the WindowsNoEditor folder as well
