Hi,

The game has decided to stop loading my save files.

The message I get is: "Profile Load Failed"

Any ideas on how to fix this?

I have removed my save files (cry) and it is still broken.

'I have removed my save files (cry) and it is still broken.' Does this mean it cant load any save or just yours.
Kinda sounds like it might have become corrupted, changed the DLC installed at all?

Can't load any saves. Even tried creating a new one on an alternative account.

No DLC purchased.

In my storage settings, there was no indication of corruption.

I have deleted the game and redownloaded it, Nothing worked.

Redownloading it again, now my saves have gone.

Done. All the normal methods have been exhausted.

Can't be a profile issue as it happens in more than 1 profile.

Fixed.

Had to delete all save files including ghost data - hard drive, cloud and externals
Deleted the VIP pass
Deleted the game
Cleared cache

Reinstalled the game

Loads fine but progress has been reset.

I was on the last season as well, with all but the last World Tour done.

You had no USB to back up the save file to?

You said this main save didn't work and no others you made, so now you can make save files again properly have you tried this backup or does the same thing happen again?

I haven't been able to connect to DiRTNET since I started the game last week.... After doing just some quick searching, I came to the conclusion that it was just shutdown & gone forever. Is that not right?

It was working before my problems, as I could see my ghost times. Not too bothered as it won't stop me getting any achievements.
