    Hi,

    I want to delete the game, and do a reinstall.

    When I do that, the game starts up downloads profiles ive previously played.

    When I choose a new game profile, im offered to skip day 1 of the test because previous achievements unlocked day 2.

    How can I reinstall the game wthout any old profile being offered? How can I make the game start without any previous achievements being loaded?

    Another question: How can I reset all achievemnts in Steam?

    Thanks,

    Turn off the Steam cloud :-

    Delete everything in this folder :-

    YourSteamInstallDrive\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\xxxxxxx\223670\remote

    • xxxxxxx = Your Steam ID number
    • 223670 = The F1 2013 profile folder.
    As far as I know, you cannot reset your Steam achievements.

    Cheers :)

    It's not hate in this case, it's for a reason :D

    Steam automatically keeps a backup of your game profile stored in the cloud. It's more trouble than it's worth in this game.

    Plus when you delete the files in the folders I mention above, the Steam cloud will almost certainly try and put the files back, and defeat what you are trying to do. :)
