    If it says "unsupported file type Json file" it means that in your userdata/player files the Json files have gone walkabout (blank).
    Check the 3 Json files (PLayer, multiplayer, controller) have still got content.
    If they are blank you need to re activate the game this will re create them.

    Once you have them safe and sound (you will need to re set a lot of preferences like controller settings etc.), copy them to a usb and put it in a drawer.
