hello
I tried several things.
Play only with keyboard and record, the same happened.
Play with my gamepad, it happened.
Tried to go Driver Profile, recorded, the same happened.

Note that in the directory:
... Steam \ userdata \ ********* \ 310560 \ remote
I have 4 files
savegame@profile#QKIGMYYI.LKR
savegame profile @ # QKRHMYXE
savegame@profile_backup#QKIGMYYI.LKR
savegame @ profile_backup # QKRHMYXE

after going to Driver Profile,
I went to see if these files had the date and time of the recording

But they had not.

All times I lose my cars and money.

Hi there. :)

Goto: Steam \ userdata \ ********* \ "310560"
to make sure the folder is not set to "read only".

ie. right click the folder "310560" > properties...
check and then uncheck the "Read only" box > apply it(apply to all files and folders in this directory) and ok it.

Just make sure Dirt Rally is NOT running when you do this.
It's possible it's just a permissions issue and doing the above, might correct it.

As you are at the very start you could also try to delete the 4 files and let the game make new ones.
Another option that might help is to deactivate cloud saving.
The game should then start to make a saving in youre local folder instead of the remote folder in folder 310560

Sorry this has happened, when I'm back in tomorrow I'll find out what info we need from you to get it looked at.

Out of interest have you modified any of the files or anything like that? Sometimes tinkering with these can stop the game saving.

I have not changed anything in the files.
I tried to change the folder permissions
I deleted the game and saves and made a new download, I lose all And make a new race.
but the problem remains the same.
Have windows 8.1
and the latest version of Dirt Rally
My Steam folder is located in the D: \ drive
I do not know if will have something to do with going to play online events
and then play normally.

Or by playing more than a round of 4 games and then to save and exit.

I have pictures in my account on Steam "lee49cole"

But If you need I recod the game and put in youtube channel.

Same problem here :(

I don't want to lose 105 hours of gameplay but anyway tried to reset progress.

Profile -->  reset progress not working, its possible to press it but then esc button will not return to previous menu.
After restarting the game seems to load old profile with same profile statistics and championship progress.

Folder is read only. Tick it off, it comes back to read only after I start the game.
Tried to delete profile files and let the game create new ones, game still gets profile from somewhere.
Turning off cloud saving is not possible because tick box is locked. 

I have also racenet connection issue and leagues not working, maybe it is because of this profile bug.

Please Codemasters, fix this problem

Hello

I think the problem comes after trying go play online.
If you go online and after normally play after leaving the game lose all progress.

I note that after coming online,
back play normally,
and then make trying to get online, but always gives error.

You can test these two processes?

1 Enter online, play online, leaving online, play normal and try to get online
see if gives you error.
then leaves the game and see if you missed progress.

2. Get in the game, playing a game normally
and exits the game.
now checks if you lose all progress.

Well it just happened to me the other night and i know what caused it.

I was signed in to online events(just checking for anything new/interesting).
Anyways i came back out and went to championship mode.
Started it and finished the first countries stages and saved, it took me back to main menu(cool).

Then went to the second countries event and half way through the 1st or 2nd stage it froze with a popup saying:
you're not signed in and you're times won't be saved(continue offline or cancel--- i could not select the cancel option)... OWTTE.

Anyways... after that whole countries events were finished, i went straight into the next countries event and finished that.
3 second places(masters) and second overall, went to buy a couple of cars, renew contracts etc. then went to save driver profile
and noticed i didn't get any spinner icon showing that it's saving.

Last night i went to championship mode and noticed i was back at the start of the second event.!!
Lost the money, cars and the renewed contracts.

long story short... if you're in the middle of a championship and your connection drops, nothing will get saved, ever.!!
The only thing to do, is take it on the chin and exit, then restart DR.

Looks like a serious design flaw(overlooked maybe), that once you're signed in...
you need to stay signed in, in order to finish a championship and for your progress to be saved.

I should also say that after completing that championship(bying the cars/renewing contracts);
i went into online events again and then came back out, just to make sure it was up to date with my progress.
But like i said, the next night all my progress was gone.

Yes the same for me.

After you make 1 or 2 races if you go back and try enter online give error.
If you go to your profile and save you go see that you don`T see any spinner icon showing that it's saving.
I'm doing one of 4 races, after I go to profile and I save. Attention only 1, if I make more that one i lose all.

I would like to see some programmer to help us

Are you running the up-to-date version of the game? it might be in conflict.
Try uninstalling and reinstalling the game, maybe that works.

Oooh, had this happen to me once.

My internet connection can be pretty dodgey. So if I lose internet connection during play all of that game session will be lost?  :o

Wishful thinking there Lee. Saves are broken, many have it, and it is not a mod or user problem. I really, really hope you develop a fix for Error 41 and lost saves before the Rally Cross update. A whole lot of loyal customers are locked out of your great game right now. I'm not locked out personally - I have to fix the permissions and discard progress at least once each Championship, so placing well enough overall to advance is not possible. Please review this thread (and others on Steam). http://steamcommunity.com/app/310560/discussions/0/613956964587816157/

This problem gets posted over and over, and it is NOT due to mods.

I reinstalled DiRT and upgraded to Windows 10 and so far saves are working. I freed up more space on my OS hard drive (was ~10 Gigs, now 20+ free) and I am on race 5 of Greece without the save bug (usually by the 3rd track it bugs out). I moved from a magnetic platter HDD to the SSD with the OS during the install and cleanup process so there are a lot of variables at play. Free space on the OS drive and reinstalling seem like the most likely solutions if mine is indeed fixed. The problem takes a while to show up so I won't be confident that it is fixed until I get through a couple championships without a broken save. I will post results in a day or two.

I can not save any progress at all. It doesn' matter if I drive in greece or anywhere else. As soon as I exit and restart, the progress is gone. Not only the progress, but the profile changes also. I tried it with activated and deactivated cloud, no difference.
