    I have an odd problem that doesn't seem to have a solution online. I like to customize my in-game cars, including the colors, and when I do, occasionally the new color I have chosen will not appear on the car when I select it for play. EDIT: and recently other customized features are being lost.

    For example, if I choose a Hirochi Sunburst, paint it red, and save the new custom car, it will appear in the garage in the correct color, but it will appear in the game as yellow. It only happens to certain individual cars, and happens every time to that particular car. So far, it seems to happen to red, orange, and purple cars, but it might not be related to the color itself. If I recolor the car red and save it again, it will again appear in the same incorrect color. I think it is the colors of the default display car in the model selection screen (e.g. yellow for Sunburst).

    Tonight, for the first time (I have been playing for two weeks), some of the other changes to my car did not save. Last night, the only thing that didn't save to my newly customized Rally Sunburst was it's coloring. All other custom features saved. Tonight it loaded with almost none of its custom features. It's a virtually stock 1.8 in yellow with a sunroof (which I didn't have in my custom). It saved only my wheels (in the wrong color).

    Does anyone know why this is happening or how to prevent it?

    Thanks.

    When I click your link, I seem to be downloading a file that requires over 2 hours to complete.

    Could you please send a screenshot? It's probably a verifying of game files.

    It's not a problem with the files, it happens to everyone, there are like 5 threads about it already. Certain colors break config saving.

    I would love to see those threads. I searched before I posted my two threads but didn't find them with the keywords I was using. I'd like to know which colors I should avoid.

    Mine are following no pattern. I have cars that have the exact same coloring (the ones in my avatar) where some cars remain unchanged and the others show up either recolored or replaced with one of the stock cars.

    There is no pattern because it doesn't always happen, it just has a chance of happening with certain colors. And there wasn't any solution on any of those threads, it's save file corruption, can't really be fixed without manually editing the file.

    Can you tell me how to manually edit the file/what things to fix? It always pisses me off after doing a shit ton of customizations on an offroad build just for it to corrupt and give me a default blue d-series.

    That's really complex sometimes, involves different things in different situations, such as changing brackets, adding some missing lines, or sometimes deleting half of the file, I might have to make a guide on it when I have time

    I might be able to utilize that guide. I have computer programing and HTML experience, and I'd be willing to give it a try.

    I forwarded logs and issue to the team. We are investigating it. :)

    Unfortunately, I can't say when it will be fixed
