Don't Buy DLC Until The Devs Fix the Save Game Issues
Pumping out new DLC is nice, but with a corrupt save every week there is no joy in keep on playing this game.
If the devs refuse to fix these issues, the only way to respond properly is to refuse to buy new DLC.
They will have to understand that these save game issues are a game breaking bug and needs to get fixed pronto. I don't care who is responsible, the Steam Cloud or the game structure.
Fix it !!!
Untill then no new DLC.

yea plus 1000000 fixes needed for savegame bug, MP session disconnects, controller disconect isseus, race & drift fysics mix-up, etc

Agreed.

Steam isn't the issue here i folowed the advice off Cm's support and disabled steam cloud service after my 1st corrupt savegame ... 8 days later the new savegame is corrupt to.

This has been a problem in all Cm's products: Grid1 & 2, F1 2010 & 2012, Dirt series .... really dont understand why they keep that crap savegame method.

Since we're on the subject of DLC, anyone care to talk about what DLC can be used for single player, or is it all MP?
MadManCK Jul 16, 2013 @ 6:59am 
It is also for Offline play. Try custom events.
But the subject is not to discuss DLC but to give Codies a clear message about the game saves. It is ridiculous.
Some players have spent hours to create cool paintjobs for every individual ride. Get to L30, finish the WSR. All gone and nowhere to back up your files. The saves are also hidden somewhere in Steam so you can not back up your files easily. Even if you want to.
The essence of a cloud backup should be that it acts like a backup and allows you to go back to a previous save if one gets corrupted. It makes no sense.
Also, why is there no tool to fix your save. Maybe it is just a small file that causes the troubles.
Anyway, codies should prioritize this and fix it before releasing more DLC.
I wont buy any new stuff for a broken game.

I apologize if i seemed like i was hijacking the thread. I'm certainly not buying any DLC until these issues are fixed. Very strange issue to have this far into the release of the game. But thank you for answering my question. I've hardly made it far into the game yet, so knowing this issue gives me more time to play other games. Shame, but at least this is now my #1 racing game.

Better hurry to complete it Savegame file is selfdestructive and will go corrupt after couple weeks.

Dlc is for offline to yes ;]

i just bought the game , so do i have to back up my save game every day -_- ?
Revoltage Jul 17, 2013 @ 1:01am 
Yes, I strongly advise to do a backup of your savegame everyday. Also got a corrupted savegame, luckily I found an older version of the savegame on my second PC.

Corrupted Savegame for the second Time. I think i don't want to go up to level 30 for the next time

Levelling Up goes quickly. Especially if you just play a lot.
Do you want to go through all the levels again and paint all your rides again, only to be confronted with another corrupted save? Don't think so.
I like the game but this is a really bad bug.
Does nobody do any QA testing before releasing new content anymore? With that many players suffering from corrupted saves, this should also have occurred during testing. Why release a broken patch?
MadManCK Jul 23, 2013 @ 7:07am 
Place this thread on top again. Still no sign the devs are working on a save game fix. As long as that is not happening, i and many with me, will not buy new DLC.
It's ridiculous. Pumping out new content, while the main game remains broken. Very bad practice.

Some people have no sense of shame and/or money's value. They ♥♥♥♥♥ how CM handled DLC for Dirt3 but here they are, swalling whole anything CM cares to shove down their throats.
