All my save files have been corrupted
Haven't played the game for about a week. Come back on, and suddenly all of my saves are are corrupt. Is there any way to fix this, or do I just have to start all over again? Also, if I do have to start over, will I still have all my DLC?

Welcome to the club ! :)
Yes DLC is the only thing u will have when starting over the rest is all gone.
This has been an issue with most of CM's titles and still in new games like this they havent learnt there lesson of making a new savegame method. Well they should inform costumers of this crap savegame coding or give the game to a betatesting group.

♥♥♥♥ man, that does suck. I only had about 6 hours worth of career mode completed, and had only ever played two or three online races. Even losing that makes me pretty ♥♥♥♥ed.

FYI: This has nothing to do with Steam cloud service as my 3th savegame corrupted to without the steam cloud sync. I got this response to couple weeks ago from Cm: ''Corruption in the saved file for F1 2012 can be caused by synchronisation problems between your PC and Steam, unfortunately. We recommend that following to minimise the chances of this happening... '' Blabla ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ disabled it and with a clean new savegame 8 days later it's corrupt again.

Why in the name of god does a company who call themselves 'codemasters' doesnt do anything about a years old bug in THEIR CODE ????????????

CM is trying to blame it on Steam yeah i got that standart e-mail response to. But if u read that mail it's obvious that this problem existed in previous codecrap games cause they refer to F1 2012 ... and if u google 'codemasters corrupt save game' u get 100's of pages related to ALL the codemasters titles.

Rly hate it that CM is trying to blame Steam on this one Steam has never in 7 years + given me an error ... i buy 1 game of codemasters in these 7 years and it's bug after bug after bug.

I contacted info@codemastersintl.com and custserv@codemasters.com and an online support request but this company seems to be dead no respons in 29 houres now .. great for a 7/7 support !!!

I have this problem as well and I might have found a temporary solution. For me, I get the corrupted data message but I am able to load it, but the only thing I see of my cars is their shadow on the floor and the screen stays fixed, there's no zooming in on the tableau or what have you. If you can get this far, do anything you can to force the game to save, like buying a new car. Restart the game after that and selecting the savegame will give you the corrupted data message twice, but you should be able to play with your old savegame.

I can't even load it. I get the message and nothing else. Would duplicating the save file and trying the second one work perhaps?

Helo world!
W4mB3rtu Jul 15, 2013 @ 10:07am 
@julian/doom: Method workt for me i downgraded a car, exit the game and restart. Now the savegame is ok but when i quit again and restart it's broken again. damnit almost had some hope ;(
Gill Jul 15, 2013 @ 11:40am 
Ah, lost my save as well. Not much played but still a pain in the ♥♥♥. Won't care for this game anymore, hate corrupts saves, won't risk it happening again, rather play Race 07.
