How to recover your profile after downgrading.


Recommended Posts

Hello!

If your game has updated and you wish to downgrade to play TruckersMP however your profile seems to be incompatible, follow the guide below. 

1. Ensure Cloud saves/sync is turned off for which ever game the issue occurs in. (To check open up the game and select the profile you'd like to recover and click on "Edit")

Once you're click on the "Edit" option on the profile, unselect/untick the "Use Steam Cloud" option

3. Select the game and enter the folder, once there you find the directory of the game you're having issues with. Look for the latest supported version of Steam_Profiles_(1.38.xxxx).bak file. (The version required will be the the most recently modified Steam_Profile_(1.38.xxxx).bak file.)
I have used Euro Truck Simulator 2 as an example.

6. Exit the directory and start up the game.

 If followed correctly, the game profile(s) should be recovered successfully. 

Please let me know if I have missed anything.

Both ETS2 and ATS are having -homedir parameter, which can be used to move profiles, mods, etc. to different location. Documents folder is used when the parameter isn't specified, which is the case for most of the players. You could add a bit of info about that parameter in this guide, since some users might be using it when having the issues with incompatible saves.
