    Hi,

    First, I play on PC, with an original version of the game.
    This is the third time my savegame fail. When the game starts, and loads the savegames, it crashes. I can't do anything, I have to delete my savegame and do it all over again...

    Where does it come from? Does anyone have the same issue?

    Your saved games get corrupted if you finish qualifying but do not complete the race before exiting the game. To get round it simply make sure you have the time to complete the race before starting qualifying(not always possible I know).

    Sheesh yes there is something you can do. You can go to the 'Corrupt Save Game Fix' thread and read it and follow the solution, rather than posting another new thread!

    Here is the link - http://www.racedepartment.com/showthread.php?t=65414&page=6&p=938798#post938798

    Basically, when this happens, start the game with the KEYBOARD (not controller), it will start. Then, setup you wheel ingame, save the game, exit the game. Launch the game and start is using the WHEEL this time, go in and start racing.

    You will have lost minimal data from the last session that corrupted your save game, but you wont lose everything.

    Not correct. Its not the only cause.

    Using the keyboard enter key is the best way but I've also noticed that if you suspect the corrupt save game bug coming... such as when the game just crashed or if you just want to make sure the save game bug doesn't occur... such as just finishing a long race, entering the game with enter key will ensure that it wont happen. It seems like the crash itself is what's losing the last career session and entering with keyboard before that happens prevents that.

    Then you're problem is something else, not save game bug.
