  1. I highly doubt it would fall into the category of needing to be redownloaded since it works fine in every other circumstance.  Further observation has shown that it does not give the XP bonus after any of the events in the Championship, but at the end it does appear to give the 50% bonus to completing the sponsor challenges.  Doesn't make any sense to me. 
  2. I've moved on to work on the Grid series events (Grid Grand Slam currently), and I've noticed that I'm not receiving the 50% bonus from the Boost Pack dlc on the Discipline Rewards screen.  Is this a glitch?  Was it meant to work this way?  If so, then why?  We're supposed to be receiving a 50% bonus to our XP in our career, our whole career as far as any description has said.  I didn't read anywhere where the white Grid series events were excluded from this bonus.  Could we please get some clarification?  Thanks.

    I redeemed some bing points to put $5 in my Microsoft/Live account so that I could buy the Boost Pack dlc without actually spending my money on it.  It's worked great in the career up until today.  Today I started the Grid Grand Slam series and noticed that I no longer have the "Boost - 50%" bonus listed on my Discipline Rewards screen.  This is kind of a bummer.  I plan on doing some searching in these [piss poor] forums to see if anything has been mentioned about this.  Web searches have turned up absolutely ZERO results.  Oh well.

    Color changing seems to have been working properly for the most part in the few hours I raced online last night (Xbox 360).  I'm not sure how to clear cache on the PS3, but you might want to see if there's someway you can reset your game to get that system working right, or maybe it's a PS3 version issue.  My biggest issue with that system is that it's pretty flawed to begin with.  If someone does a PIT maneuver on me, I start to slide and because other cars hit me while I have no real control over my car, I'm the one that gets penalized as a dirty racer.  It gets old pretty fast.

    For Codemasters: https://twitter.com/SonySantaMonica/status/505065081000820736 This is how you treat your fans and paying customers.  And this^ was just because there was a release day install issue that was resolved within a day or so and could be worked around (though from what I read it was a bit complicated to do so).  If you want to keep your fans, keep people looking forward to and spending money on your products when they come out, you need to do at least SOMETHING when you have a major screw up like this corrupt file b.s.  You're a business, I get that.  And you can do what ever want.  We certainly can't make you do anything.  Thankfully, you can't make me buy your games either.  Thank you for finally getting the patch out.  But as I've said before, if you aren't willing to show even a minor gesture of appreciation for our patience, then I'm done buying Codemasters games new.  I'll wait until it's been out for a few months to make sure there's no major issues left in the game and then look for a used copy to make sure none of the money goes to you. It's within your power, and costs you NOTHING, to put on some kind of XP boost weekend, or week, or month.  And you would sacrifice very little by providing the bonus XP dlc to those of us who were affected, and would gain a great deal of goodwill in return.

    CM has said that if the file had been "altered" in anyway that the patch wouldn't be able to recover it.  I'm not saying that anyone has intentionally altered their save file, but who knows what the system might have done to it over time.  Especially on the PS3.  My corrupt file has been sitting exactly where it was when I first got the error message (Xbox 360).  I decided to just drop the game and wait for the patch.  Hopefully this will increase any chances I might have of getting it restored.

    In 2021 Codemaster will already be 6 years bankrupt after the Grid Autosport game save bug, if they aren't no way I will buy grid 6. At my place we don't buy "garbage", we get rid of it! U sure love talking about codemasters and grid . You got corrupted like everyone else but your acting like a spoiled little brat. If I'm the only one thinking this , well I'm not . Quit moaning it happened and it happened in grid2 , do I think its wrong yes. But you need to put your big girl panties on and deal with it .  As a paying customer, berre and anyone else has the right to be upset and voice their frustration when sold a broken product.  If everyone just kept quiet, then we'd be effectively saying that it's okay to release a game in this kind of state.  Which it is not.  If you don't like reading all these negative comments, then I guess you'll just have to deal with that.

    A bank holiday where?  Since it's currently in MS's hands (reportedly), then I don't think a holiday in CM's home country will have any effect on the patches release.  Unless it's denied, again.

    Or maybe I just tell it like it is. If you've noticed, which you haven't, I have brought up several points against CM, like their recycled "Disc Locked Content," repetitive playlist rotations, the current "garage/level" limitations, upgrade glitches, etc. But, no, someone as simple minded as you doesn't see anything past surface level. You are but a mere troll here to gain popularity by going with the flow of hatred for Codemasters. And my original point still stands. Loore never confirmed the patch would be here by now, he said "expected to be" live. But, people here are known for reading only what they want to see, instead the entire story.  I'm well aware that it was never officially stated and set in stone that the patch would finally arrive no later than today.  However, "should" creates an air of expectation.  See if you can follow me here:  If I have a friend who is for whatever reason in need of a car ride to or from somewhere and he calls up and asks me if I can give him a lift, and my response is "I should be there around 4".   How does he process that?  He's thinking, maybe a little before 4, maybe a little after 4...  But if I show up at 11, and don't even bother to inform him of this and provide explanation, how do you think he'd react?  How would you react? I've only seen your posts in this particular thread, but I certainly don't know how your response on my comment about hoping for the patch by today was in any way "telling it like it is."  Sorry, just don't see it.

    So, it's Friday morning and the end of another week.  A week that was supposed to see a patch for console by its end... I really hope this gets done.  If it were in CM's hands I doubt we'd see it come out during a weekend, but I'm wondering if MS would just let it sit over the weekend.  Any ideas whether or not they'd release a patch on a Saturday or Sunday?

    Thanks for the update.  I'll try to make the rounds when I can find the time.

    Maybe you should start sharing these sites with the rest of us so we can make some comments or try to contact someone there to voice our frustrations with their coverage, or lack there of, of known issues.

    Hey, how's it going buddy?! (other than not being able to play Grid that is) ---------------------------------------- To Codemasters: At this point, with today's news, I've reached a decision.  Here are the factors:  Corrupt save file issue.  Corrupt save file issue has kept my game completely shelved for over 4 weeks (and existed for even longer).   You're apparently not willing to do so much as a bonus XP week/weekend, let alone giving the affected players the XP Boost dlc (which is what I feel should happen), as a gesture of goodwill for all the grief caused by this issue. I understand that the last few weeks have been mostly out of your control on how long the patch would be.  But again, releasing the game in a broken state to begin with was your responsibility.  I can even understand that sometimes a colossal cascade of events can lead to a giant mess, like what we're dealing with now.  So what it comes down to is your lack of humility.  You are seemingly doing what you can to fix the problem, but you're are in no way doing what you can to make it right or make it up to the paying customers who have had to put up with this problem for so long.  And if this doesn't change in some way by the time the patch is finally released or very shortly thereafter, I will no longer actively support you as a company.  Therefore, once (if ever) I am able to play this game again I will complete whatever achievements I have left and that's it.  I will buy no dlc packs, no add-ons, tracks, cars, or what have you.  I will never pre-order a Codemasters game again.  I will avoid purchasing any Codemasters game within the first 60-90 days of release, if ever.  And finally, if I ever actually buy any other Codemasters games, I will do my best to find a used copy as to not have my money go directly into your pockets. Note: Loore, I would think that this is obvious, but to be clear none of this is in any way directed at you.  You seem to do what you can to relay information and updates as they are available for you to do so.  This is directed entirely at whatever group of people are actually running Codemasters (or possibly running into the ground).

    Compensated for ? Did you not know about the corruption bug ? I sure did but kept playing with the attitude of hopefully it won't hit me but it did. I was at lvl 150 online and almost finished offline besides a few things. I'm not asking for compensation. C'mon that's a joke right ? Did I miss a giant notification window that would pop up whenever I started the game that informed players of this issue?  I sure as heck didn't know about it before it hit me nearly a month ago.  Why would I?  I have and play way too many games to go trolling every game's website for any possible game breaking issues. Personally, I think your comment is more of a joke than the one you chastised.

    So it's going to be a month of being unable to play a game that I bought brand new (pre-ordered even)?  A lot of devs try to do something to make up for such a gross error in programming, which was on top of that so poorly handled (sorry, but there was a huge lack of info and updates to the community in regards to what was going on with the console version of the game).  Instead we got paid-for dlc.  I understand that sometimes bad things happen, but since 100%  of the people I played this game with on a regular basis got hit by this (5 for 5) it seems like this is something that should have been identified and fixed through game testing before release.  And while the entirety of the delay is not Codemasters "fault", the overall product is their responsibility.  Not Microsoft or Sony's.  I know the validation process can be a pain, but there have been plenty of devs that have gotten a "hot fix" out within a week.  I was told more than 2 weeks ago by support that a patch was on the way and would be out "soon".  I know it doesn't take the console companies 3+ weeks to test a patch.  And don't get me started on the rep telling me I can just play on another account until the patch comes out.  That was infuriating.  Personally, I think anyone hit by this false corruption should at the very least get the booster pack as compensation to make up for all the XP we've lost out on being able to get since being hit by this bug/glitch/screw up.
