    Great :cool: . Ditching GFWL for Steam was the best thing they could have done, and the speedy delivery of new patches proves it.

    Word of warning ..... backup your mods if you have Steam set up to keeps the game up to date automatically.

    Steam will probably verify the game files during the patching process and replace the original files with new copies ..... :thumbsup:

    Who knows? But the patch is to fix the game, not destroy your career, so you should be safe.

    PATCH 1 IS NOW RELEASED ON STEAM - I JUST UPDATED

    Thanks Gnu for the info. Already patched it and had a look at the files that were patched.
    The flow.bin was one of them, I hope this does not end in conflict with any mods as it did in last years game. Stupidly I did not backup it before...

    Did your mods (cars, helmets etc.) survive? ;)

    Is there a way of identifying what version is installed? - I did get a steam update earlier but that seemed more like a client update.

    Funny enough, I haven't checked the helmet yet.

    However, I didn't follow my own advice, in the heat of the moment earlier when I got the save bug for the 4th time. I quickly changed to the default actionmap for my controller (because I have remapped some keys and added 'look to apex' directly in the file. I rename my file, and got the bug sorted out, then used my file again. A quick game test and when I closed the game, Steam said 'Game updated', that's when I opened this thread.

    I thought 'oh bugger I will have lost my edited actionmap' .... but no, it's still there, phew! :)

    ..... ooh, I just checked the helmet files, and the file dates look good too.

    Well I checked the f1 2012 exe file. It says that the date modified was today @ 17:30

    There is also game updater history available when right clicking in Steam. It's also in the news section when you click on the game in Steam

    Thanks. I did check the file details but only took notice of the version number which still says 1.000. The modify date is today though so I guess that must be it.

    cheers

    Remember this 1st patch does not fix the autosave bug.

    Your profile could have already been corrupted from the last time you saved the game, pre-patch.

    It does seem that actual corruption is generally rare, it's mostly that the game just stops saving either manually or by auto.

    I think I am just going to re-install after the savegame patch is released.

    No use to try and figure out - if indeed the save goes bust before that - whether I had to restart or not.

    Casual races here I come!
