    Hi all,
    I've got a problem with my F1 2012 profile, and was wondering if anyone knew of a fix or something. My profile didnt load up properly yesterday, after i tried to edit the F1 drivers / teams field in the database. So I reverted my database back to how it was, but the game still wont remember my profile, and asks me to create a new one.

    Luckily i've got a backup of my save game, that i copy and paste when it doesnt work, however i really dont want to have to do this every time i want to play the game.

    Basically what happens is this:
    Every time i start my computer up and boot F1 2012, the game wants me to create a new profile.
    This only happens when the computer has been powered off. If i start the game for a second time, (after putting the save files back in) then it runs fine. But, if the computer is restarted, and then F1 2012 is booted, it wont work.

    I really dont know why this is happening. :(


    Any help please?

    It's as if restarting my computer makes the game wipe its' memory.

    Thanks so much! I seem to have fixed it by creating a new profile with the same name as my previous one, then quiting, C+P my save game data into the remote folder, and it worked!

    I can now restart my computer and my original profile loads up! Hooray!

    SOLVED! (For now)
