Character creation gender getting stuck

I've had an issue when I change the gender of my character, it doesn't change.
Hitting the button changes the face, but it's still very much a female. I've tried the fixes I've seen online and still nothing has changed. I hope this issue gets resolved sometime in the near future.

Perhaps you have tried this already, but to fix this issue for me I did the following:

  • Go to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Insurgency\Saved\SaveGames\Profile
  • Delete (or move/rename if you're worried) Profile.sav, Cosmetics.json and CosmeticPresets.json if you have it
  • Restart the game

I can't remember if this resets your rank/unlocks or not so I would back those files up to be safe!
