question about gpor.it

Post by Chess » Sun Jun 28, 2009 11:45 pm

How come I've lost a lot of my races? I had logged in over 200 races and it was showing up. Then one day I checked and it had me at about 50 races. Am I missing something?

Season 4 ended and season 5 started few days ago. Probably you had 200 races at previous season? :P

EDIT: no, I checked better. You changed your nickname. Or well, nickname is the same but you changed player ID (changed pc? deleted previous player and made new one?). The trick is to keep always the same nickname, or eventually backup data/players.da2 (which handles player profiles).

yes, there are a few PC's that I play from. Did this cause the problem? And how do I fix it so it doesn't happen again?

You said something about backing up data/players.da2 (which handles player profiles). How do I do this and will this fix the problem when I play from a different PC?

Just use the same players.da2 from all PC's.

Is there anyway of getting those races back or are they lost forever?

EDIT: I seem to have gotten them all back. Thanks!

It seems that I've lost most of my races again. I have not played from a different computer or used another name.

You are just listed with two nicknames, that's it.
