View Full Version : [WORK-AROUND] Game wont load past the title screen

19-05-2015, 08:16
When I reach the press start action on the main screen, the game wont load any further. It will just continue to sit on the main title page.
Any help with this issue? My version of the game is the digital download from the xbox store.

Had the same problem a few days ago. Seems my profile was corupt. I deleted the profile and all back to normal. If u do this u will lose ur game save. Also do not sinc to the cloud the first time u see the promt to do so. After that u should be back to normal. Hope this helps.

Game size is 18.5gb, correct?

Check if the game size is 18.5 GB (which means it includes the patch). If this is correct, try to start another game first. Hit X-button to go back to the home menu and start Project CARS. I have had the same issue a couple of times and starting another game and restarting PCARS after that works everytime for me.

just awesome, it seems as though my save profile is corrupt. what a waste of all the hours already put into game. really cant be bothered to start all over again now.

I removed my profile and re-added it and the game still won't move past the start screen?

Might be a issue with the DRM. Have you called MS and asked them to reset it on your account?

Sounds like we have a partail resolution, correct? OP you are able to get beyond the loading screen now some way?

19-05-2015, 20:50
yeah i can get past the loading screen now, but only by deleting all of my previous saves and progress in the game.

You wanna spend more time on it? Maybe a subsequent patch will fix it. Can i mark it "solved" for now? Or maybe "work-around"?

Workaround I think

Often when xb1 games get stuck on their loading screens it's because they're having trouble fast resuming.

Best thing is to quit the game and try again. The trick is how to quit it?

On the dashboard, select the game, then press the menu button on your controller. Select the quit option from the popup menu and after a few seconds you can re-open the now shutdown game, and I suspect it will work.

Btw, restarting your Xbox will not necessarily quit the game.

In Energy Saving mode it does. In Instant On mode is does not.

Damn, consoles have become so complex. Last time i had a console we had to blow into the cartridge until we were dizzy to get the game to work. lol

Just did this to me. Uninstalled it. Now itvsays the size is 18.1 only. So glad I lost all of my data. This is stupid.

Hi Guys,
For the last few days I have not been able to login. Absolutely cannot get past the damn title screen.
I've completely cleared the Xbox One, deleted everything off it, rebooted and reloaded and still the same problem. No problem with any other games.
18.5G installed.

Before I send the game back (and wait for F1 2015), is there anything else I can try?

Have to say, in all my years of gaming I have never experienced such a flawed game release. Shocking.
