A Message From FM.Net About Corrupt File Issues

Thanks to Marknally for posting this in another forum.



It's a message from FM.Net about what to do if you get a corrupt file after saving any tunning set ups, paint jobs etc ....






It has recently come to our attention that some of you may be receiving a corrupt save message when trying to save a file. This could happen with tunes, replays, paints or photos. While we are working on this issue please follow the steps below.

The Message: Your save file is corrupt. Please delete it from the Xbox Dashboard and create a new one.

If you receive the message above when trying to save a file please follow these directions:

  1. Go to the Xbox Dashboard.
  2. Move to My Xbox then scroll to the right and select “System Settings”.
  3. From inside System Settings select “Memory” then select the location where your game saves are located (for most people this will be on the hard drive).
  4. Scroll down the list until you find Forza Motorsport 4.
  5. From inside the Forza Motorsport 4 memory saves, you want to select the file that was corrupted. In most cases the file you are looking for will say “Corrupted” and have “!” next to it.

NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT DELETE your Game Save, If you do, you will lose all your game progress. Here is a list of the naming structure of your Forza Motorsport 4 saves:

(Your Gamertag) Saved Game – DO NOT DELTE THIS FILE. This is your main game save file and should only be deleted as a last resort.

(Your Gamertag) Car Setup Files Saved Game - These are your Tune Files.

(Your Gamertag ) PHOTOS Saved Game – This is all of your saved photos.

(Your Gamertag) LAYER GROUPS Saved Game – These are all of your created and purchased layer group files.

Why am I not surprised this is still an issue.

But on a more serious note, after you've selected the file in step 5 then what.... leave it selected and see if it heals itself?

Ok so what if you haven't even saved a file yet? A friend is getting this and has not saved anything yet, it's his first tune he wants to save. So he has no corrupt file to delete....???

Just hit delete. It then works great.
