    Hi,
    Since last week I'm having problems opening rfactor 2, when I'm going to open the single player I get the error message appended below, however the dev mode does work.
    I formatted and the problem persists. [​IMG]

    Formatted what?
    You format a hard drive which basically deletes all the data on it.

    With your error I would have cut your player.json and paste it on your desktop.
    Do a Steam verify games files and start the game.
    You will have a default player.json then.
    If that doesn't work it may be another of the json files.

    edit, Do this first as it may tell you the exact problem:
    To start rF2 with log, just add in the launcher settings (TAB SinglePlayer) +trace=3

    //Edit: log files should appear in .\Steam\SteamApps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\Log
    as trace<date>.txt

    (there you go Juergen, passing on the log file "secret")

    Any chance that an AV is blocking the file?

    Is a json file something that could do make a AV program flag it.
    They aren't executables or bats.
    Just trying to learn my new thing for the day Juergen. ;)

    JSON files are at least...java script files. rF2 is opening some .json files during start up.

    And thanks for sharing the log hint ;)

    I think your player.json got corrupted. Just delet it and than it should work again.
