Dirt2 Colin McRae - Corrupt Autosave file savegame fix

Sha8doW's picture

I turn on the game today to find my “Autosave file corrupt”
Boy was I pissed having almost completed the game…

Did a little Google work… found a solution

1. Copy the “savegame” folder (documents/my games/Dirt2/savegame) to a safe place.
2. Start the game and create a new profile (yay for unskippable cut scenes and setups) complete the first race (win or lose doesn’t matter)
4. Quit the game.
5. Open the new “savegame” folder, paste your old “PB” folders in this new folder.
6. Open the new “autosafe” folder and paste your old “PGRRLTKJNZI” file in this new folder.

Problem fixed, as far as i can see NO loss of information

(that will learn me for hitting the X button to shut the game down from now on aye)
