Hi guys, i just formatted reinstalled my OS and got Dirt 2 again. I have my saved games backed up and i put them in the Dirt 2 folder and it keeps starting from the beginning? How do i do it so that the game starts from my last save? Thanks

Where do i copy the files across too? There is only one folder called hardwaresettings in the Dirt 2 folder? I have tried creating a new folder called savedgames and putting them in there but that didnt work?

All you gotta do,

Do the first race on dirt 2 and make sure to enable auto save.

When you done the first race it will blab on untill you get to the Rv then quit and you should have a profie or save game folder, just copy into that

Did you replace the save game or copy it along side it?

You want to delete the new save games (not the folder just the contents)

Then copy your old save games into the folders.
