Any way to get a save file to work for a different profile?
I reformatted my main hard drive and and I copied my saves to another hard drive to bring back after. but it appears I had like some specific GFWL acount for this game and I can not for the life of me find out what the user name/password was because it's been a while, so now I just got this useless save file I can't use because my usual GWFL account doesn't work with it. ♥♥♥♥ing GFWL.

If it's with a different account, I doubt it's possible.

You might have to buy FUEL again so you can activate it on your other GFWL account. One game per account only.
Pick it up the gamersgate summer sale, it's fairly cheap (3.04€ for me): http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-FUEL/fuel

Hmm, my old copy of FUEL on Gamersgate says this: "Notice: Due to technical problems with Games for Windows Live, Codemaster will not give out new activation keys until they have solved the technical issues.
Sorry for this inconvenience. But we will supply new keys as soon as we get them."
And I notice teh shop page lacks a "buy" link.

Greenmangaming still has it for sale, probably other outlets as well, and you can usually get a boxed copy on Amazon or elsewhere.

No I can play it just fine with my other account, it's just that my other accounts save won't work with it, which sucks because I don't want to do everything over again. I'm hoping they just remove GFWL entirely and saves become independent of it, but I guess I'll have to wait till july to see if they're going through with that.

Well... It won't get you to where you left off, but you can use the cheat console to unlock everything. You won't get in trouble for it either. Nobody cares at this point. Not even M$.

Isn't unlocking everything also an option in Vetron's reFUELed mod?

I'm not sure. I haven't tried it in a while, but I'm sure it probably does the same thing.

My saves wouldn't even work on the SAME GFWL account after I formatted (I kept all the files). Also, I believe the saves are encrypted, so getting them to work on another account might be next to impossible.

I love this game to bits, but I have not been back since GFWL ate my saves.

Huh, this time the previous save worked. Not the one where I'd gone halfway, but the one after that. And I just formatted. Well, that's something.

Odd. I ended up just restarting after I read somewhere that I was also supposed to save a file from the windows live folder as well that basically connects the save file to your account. I wasn't that far in but it is pretty annoying.

And that's why GFWL is dead.

Even though I had 100% of every single file in the C:\Users folder after formatting the first time, I lost my save (I had gotten very far in that game, over 30 hours played). I tried everything to restore it, but no luck. Without a shadow of a doubt - this was because of GFWL.

This time it worked, and I am extremely grateful (only 3-4 hours progress, but much better than starting with only one ♥♥♥♥♥♥ car).

Which file are you supposed to save though? And I guess this file is in Program Files somewhere? That's really idiotic; Uplay does a similar thing where they store savefiles in the Program Files/Uplay folder. Fortunately I remembered and did a save backup before formatting a few weeks back, or I would have lost over 30 hours on ACIV, and a whopping 15 minutes on Watch_Doge.

May it never be reborn.

Heh... Wouldn't be surprised if it happens through Xbox.com..
