Hey, anyone listening at Codemasters?
Been having repeated issues with game feel, so I bit the bullet and tinkered around with the game save files to force a Steam resync and obliterated the Steam Cloud backup.
Haven't had an issue since, although probably only four or five hours gameplay. No stutter, I can host OK, Discord works fine, GFE records. Kind of like F1 101.
So, what is in the save game files? I see a Stats file (which seems pretty obvious), Ghost laps in the Ghost folder (genius, I know), some kind of monolithic career / game save with a backup file that looks identical (except for filename). And a much smaller file with a similar name.
Possible some variables or corruption or game patch cruft that means the save is useless once the game is patched? And then Steam just reintroduces it for you no matter how many times you reinstall the game, drivers or in my case, change every bit of hardware chasing a ghost in the machine? Until you obliterate it, it would seem. That's my ten cents. Now it's up to you bods.@Hoo @F1Support @CmRachel @jennyannem @DanHawk1ns
I'm not stupid, I just don't always have all the necessary information,...stupid.
