DiRT Rally often doesn't save progress

Recommended Posts

I've done the Open chamionship multiple times. About 3 time with 60's, once with 70's and once with 80's. When doing it with 60's it just didn't save. I press the 'save and exit to menu' and it seems fine, but the next time I open the game, it's back to stage one. The 70's after doing 12 stages, right before saving the game crashed and all progress lost again. Through dailies I somehow managed to get enough credits to buy a BMW (it seems it does save, whenever you buy a car), started the open championship (again), this time I went back to menu after every few steges. Did the championship and it showed me that Clubman championship is now available. I save the game in the profile options and exit. Next time I start the game it shows me I'm still in Open championship. Luckily this time it somehow managed to save 2 stages before the end, so I just had to redo 2 stages not 12 or 16. But still, what is up with that? I haven't modified files, I've validated the file cache. I don't see a point driving the championships, if  I don't even know if it will save.

It seems it's connected to Greece. Also, whenever the save bug happens, Racenet stops working and you don't get achievements. Just did a bunch of stages in Monte Carlo and everything was fine - got the community delta achievements and could save the game afterwards (the little loading circle was spinning, when the bug happens, the loading circle doesn't even appear). After that did one run in Greece, beat the delta time, but didn't get the achievement, and after that the saving didn't work (no spinning circle)

I just lost all my career progress. And even placing the backup saves into the folder does not help. I am back to start. So there is no use for any backups.

I'm having a similar problem.  I'm stuck in Baumholder, Germany.  I finished that area and went on to the next twice, and lost it (and my car setups) twice.  The third time I finished the entire championship without exiting the game, and got promoted from Elite to Masters but didn't get an achievement for it.

Now the game still thinks I'm still in Baumholder, Germany with the same car, but it's a Masters championship instead of Elite.  It's also forgotten the amount of credits I have, and that I replaced 3 of my original engineers with top-ranked ones -- it just keeps reverting to the same state.

I have had this issue since April and read alot of threads about it. And I don´t really understand why this isn´t a priority or atleast somewhat confirmed by CM.

It is a priority and we do think it might be connected to Greece... but we're not sure.

If you guys are having it could you let us know the stage name and car you were in as well as what level championship you were competing in?

@justbiglee For me doing a reinstall of the game fixed it. After deleting the game, there were some files left, which steam didn't delete. All from the 5 Greece maps, that caused me problems. If I remember correctly, it was a file called resetlines. The thing is, before buying the game, I downloaded it from torrents, to see, if it was worth buying. After I bought it on Steam, I copied the torrented files, so I wouldn't have to redownload them again. After validating cache, the game worked, but some time later I noticed the not saving/not getting achievements thing. At first I thought it happened at random, then I narrowed it down to Greece. Maybe for me it was because of that, but a lot of people seem to have a similar problem.
For me the maps in question were Abies Koilada, Pedies Epidaxi, Ypsona tou Dasos, Ourea Spevsi and Tsiristra Thea

Do you see the orange spinning wheel in the corner, when you exit?

I'm having the same problem,  career Greece with Ford mk2 master level. For me also the sound goes away,  at start the volume is 100 % and after 30 sec  in the stage it's seems to be like 20 %. 
Also having trouble in the league and online. I'm getting the same rewards for the stages I last completed over and over again . 
This started like 1-2  weeks ago,  haven't done anything to the game

Fix please. Can't play the game when you can't save the progress.
Did you try redownloading/reinstalling the game?
No, i only verified the cache couple of times. It downloaded the 5.2MB both times. I'll try to redownload the game now. Thanks.

No, it didn't help. Still can't save the progress. Save file is "stuck" on august 20th.
It's a shame that i can't play the game which i bought. I wish i could get a refund. Better would've pirated the game.

When you uninstalled the game, did you check, if there weren't any files left in the steamapps/dirt rally folder?

I reinstalled the game and took away the dirt rally folder's,  it was two. No files left. The sound is better. Stills doesn't save so I'm stuck at Greece in career and can't save any setups,  can't buy any cars so I'm really disappointed. Help

I can not save anymore. Maybe sometimes sporadically. It is really frustrating doing events over and over and over only to find out that no progress has been saved.

Please do something about that. This bug is crawling for quite some time now.

For me it started saving again after I deleted/quit all the online leagues I was in.

edit:
Must add that my game not saving-issue didn't relate to Greece-stages (or probably it didn't).
I had no uncompleted events(online or offline) when this not saving problem started. Well I had completed one event(1/4) on rally career championship(don't remember which rally it was) at end of July (28th maybe) and after that I didn't play the game for over ten days. After 0.6 update I restarted to play on August 10th and then the problem started.

Having the same issue, no matter how many rally's or stages i do in career mode it always reverts me back to the 2nd stage of Greece after reloading my career.

Just now i completed Greece, got to the 2nd stage of Wales, restarted the game and was put back to the 2nd stage of Greece again.
