F1 2010 corrupt saves fix promised

Codies confirms "issue is with development".

A patch that addresses corrupt game saves in F1 2010 is in the works at Codemasters, the UK company has confirmed.

Players had reported issues with the recently released racer – currently Britain's best-selling game – in spiralling threads on Codemasters' forum.

The corrupted game save issue appears to plague all three versions of the game: PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

In the meantime, Codemasters suggested a "potential workaround", which involves loading in qualifying sessions before exiting the game. You'll find more details here.

Codies reckons the corrupt game save malfunction only occurs if, after completing an R&D objective, you: retire to the paddock via the Engineer (in the garage); terminally damage your car and select retire to paddock; get disqualified and select retire to paddock. So yeah, don't do those things – for now.

As long as you progress to the qualifying session before quitting the game the problem will not occur, Codies said.

F1 2010 hit number one in the UK all-formats chart this week, knocking Halo: Reach off top spot. Eurogamer's 8/10 review reveals all.
