Problem starting f1 2013

Discussion in 'F1 2013 - The Game' started by Aitor Martín, Oct 19, 2013.

  1. When I start F1 2013 in my computer it works well until it says ``press start button´´ when I press it the game closes, I know the game is ok because I´ve been playing it since it was released.

    Any ideas?
  2. May be try full uninstall & re-install ?
  3. If I do that I will lose all my progress I guess
  4. Of cause backup your save file first :)
  5. Ok I´m going to do that hope that fixes it thanks

    Everything in the remote folder.

    All the files which have 'profile' in their file name that are in remote folder, make up your profile. File names with 'ghost' in them are not really needed, they are just ghosts you race against (I hate ghost cars), but they are tiny anyway. You might as well save everything and restore everything when required.
  8. Ok thanks, I uninstalled the game and deleted it, right now I´m downloading it again from steam, I hope that works :)

    Remember to follow the procedure.

    Create new profile with exactly the same name as your backup profile, quit the game, then copy the backup files back into the game
  10. Now I can play the game but I must have done something wrong because I don´t have my saved profile. Anyway, thanks a lot! at least I can play the game. ;)
  11. Actually...you don't need the full reinstall in steam. I just reformatted my PC and restored my steamapps folder to fresh 8.1 windows install and F1 2013 didn't start. Just right click in steam, properties...verify integrity of game cache and it checks everything and fixes any issues.
  12. Too late lol
    But thanks for the next time I know how to slove it ;)
  13. no prob. I use steam quite a bit...so its useful. :)
  14. u wont loose any progress wen u unistall the game ur saved game doesnt get touched just the game files ive done this a few times wen ive put a mod on that i didnt like
  15. I don´t know why, but I lost all my progress :(
  17. all i no is wen i do it ive allways carried on from my last saved game i normally go on games library in steam right click on game u get a list of options click on propertys go along to local files i think and click delete local content it gives u that option wen u right click on game but i allways go on propertys to do it dont think it would make any diffrence like but i no its horrible wen ur half way threw playing a game then u loose it all
