    Gridautosport game freeze

    You're lucky if you get 12 or 13 races without a freeze, I stopped playing about 3 weeks ago after I managed to do 1 race in an hour of trying. I went out & bought Destiny the day after, may come back if the game ever gets fixed but I'm not holding my breath.

    Codemasters blame xbox live

    I didn't get the win, I got lapped twice in fact :o This happened on the 2nd lap of 4, & as I said after the teleport the car carried on under the control of the game, like an AI, but at the stately speed of exactly 22 mph. I told the others in the lobby what was happening, several of whom I had raced with many times before, so I carried on in the race to see what happened & got a DNF as it timed out as normal.

    Codemasters blame xbox live

    The teleporting to the finish line & getting a very quick lap time in not neccassarily a cheat, this happened to me once at Chicago in a street race. I got 28 seconds into a the 2nd lap & was teleported to the start line getting a 28 second lap, also after this happened the car carried on driving, out of my control, at a steady 22 mph till the race finished. I think a similar thing happened to another player a few days later when an impossible time was set & after that the car was very slow for the rest of the race but as the player wasn't on mic I didn't ask if the same thing had happened to them. Hmmm. Looks like the post I replied to has been removed, it was about cheating for anyone who didn't see it.

    GAS Freezing

    Same here, 2 freezes & 2 disconnects in the space of an hour last night so gave up after that.

    Sale of Goods

    I got a refund from Microsoft within 2 weeks of the game's release as the game wasn't 'of satisfactory quality' or 'fit for purpose' as described by the UK Sale of Goods Act, this was due to the corrupt save issue. I then made the mistake of buying a 2nd hand copy of the game when that issue was eventually patched. Forgot to mention I bought the game as a download through X-Box live.

    GAS Freezing

    I've had the game freeze twice today while in my garage checking cars out. That's on top of the 'normal' freezes on the race screens. I'm on the verge of giving up with the game altogether TBH.

    Grid/Codemaster's killer

    Seems to me that CM are committing suicide already with Grid, P-cars will just provide the coup de grace, hopefully.

    Touring Car Legends Download Problem (Xbox)

    I  just got my money for the Touring legends DLC refunded, been trying to download it for over a week & seems pointless having as I.m unable to play online at all this evening due to the freezing issue.

    G:AS not working properly... once again

    I've had 3 freezes when doing Racenet challenges so can't be due to different versions.

    GAS Freezing

    Was that freeze while you were downloading something in any way realated to GAS? Like a freeze from the main Xbox main menu screen? Or was it within.the GAS game itself? I am just wondering if this was a XBL problem?  I was trying to download a gamer picture that had nothing to do with GAS. I've also spoken to a couple of other players this evening & they had probs, one was watch a film when they got a freeeze.

    GAS Freezing

    I had the game freeze several times last night but also had a freeze while I was in the dashboard trying to download something.

    Touring Car Legends Download Problem (Xbox)

    I'm unable to download the Touring Legends pack, I've tried a few times since I bought it 2 days ago, it gets to 1% then stops. I'm in the UK & haven't had any problem downloading the other DLC's .

    Microsoft are doing refunds!!

    Good to hear you got a full refund too, it's not quite unprecedented though, I received a full refund on the 11th of July. I also had to go through a trouble-shooting session with one of their tech wizards before getting the refund.

    Corrupt Save File / Console Patches

    That's not always the case because I was issued a FULL refund to my credit card by Sony... You have to make sure that the representative that you speak with puts in the report that you have troubleshot every possible fix to the game corrupting... Even though Sony knows there is a direct issue with the coding of the game, they still won't issue the refund unless they know that you have troubleshot. Examples of troubleshooting are... 1) Deleted and re-installed the game 2) Deleted your save data and started a fresh save 3) Restored your system files via safe mode 4) Rebuilt system data base via safe mode 5) Installed the game on a 2nd PS3 system It seems that Microsoft maybe the same, I had to remove & re-install the game, my profile & my hard-drive in a trouble-shoot one of their tech guys took me through before I got a refund from them. This was also a full refund & was on my credit card.

    Yeah, I was very dubious & queried the guy at the time but he assured me that it was safe to do so, he took me though the whole process step by step & said they had managed to recover corrupt saves this way before, not on Grid AS though, this was the 1st time MS had gone though this process with a Grid AS corrupt save as far as I'm aware.

    I initially contacted CM customer service about a refund on the grounds that the game was neither 'fit for purpose' or 'of satisfactory quality' as described in the UK Sale of Goods Act. CM informed me that I should contact who ever had supplied the game as my contract of sale was with them & not CM. I bought the game as a download from Microsoft so contacted them through their Answer Desk service explaining the situation with corrupt saves & that I had been advised by CM I should contact MS for a refund. I was first refered to one of their tech wizards & went through a process of trying to get the save restored by erasing both my profile & the game from my hard-drive & removing the hard-drive from my x-box for a couple of minutes then down-loading profile & game again. When this didn't work I was passed to some-one higher up the chain who at one point came onto this forum to check some of the announcements & posts that had been made about the corrupt save issue. After about half an hour of me being insistent that, in my opinion, the game breached the Sale of Goods Act on the grounds I already gave above he agreed to give me a refund & I agreed that I would delete the game from my hard-drive. I'm in the UK so not sure about US laws, maybe there's something similar over the pond.

    I received a full refund from Microsoft several weeks ago when I complained to them that the game wasn't of 'satisfactory quality' or 'fit for purpose' as specified in the UK Sale of Goods Act.

    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    Game have been offering new Black Edition for £26-99 for over a week now so I'm not surprised at the low price being offered for used copies.

    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    So this means the corruptions due to turning the game off while saving will not be fixed, as suspected.  I was thinking this before. Just what if, what if my corruption is due to that? I will feel sorry for the people who did turn the xbox off while saving and think the glitch is the reason why they got a corruption. :(  I'm still hoping im not one of these people. (insert nervous laugh here) :/ What stupid reason would people turn off there game while loading or saving as it says do not turn off system while game is saving. If that's how most corruptions have occured you all deserve to have corrupted files for not following directions and if you disagree go see a shrink. This seems to be CM's standard answer to queries about corrupt saves, I got exactly the same wording in reply when I e-mailed them about it a couple of weeks ago. Seems like CM are trying to shift some of the blame onto players & this was one of the reasons I got my money refunded from MS. Also if so many players are stupid enough to turn off the system while saving then just about every game would have a problem with corrupt saves not just CM.

    Corruption Tuesday?

    Mine was Monday
  24. SublimedNine


    What more were you expecting from CM? You asked them for a refund, they told you the correct way to get one. In UK consumer law at least, dealing with faulty goods is initially the retailer’s reponsibility. Well I was at least expecting an answer to 2 of my e-mails which they ignored, they only replied to my 3rd when I mentioned Trading Standards. I have also got a full refund from MS and their customer support was very helpful, which CM's certainly were not.

    Corrupt Save Files - Fix Incoming!

    Well there's a turn up for the books, I got a full refund for the price of the game today from Microsoft, who I purchased the download from.
