Issues fixed[edit]

Infinite main menu loading[edit]

On the Windows Store version, the game can become stuck on the initial loading screen. This can happen when the game is forcefully closed (Alt+F4, Task Manager) or crashes during a course.
Edit the save file[6]
  1. Go into the folders containing random letters and numbers in the name within configuration files location.
  2. Open the file with the similar name as the folder you just opened with Notepad++ or other text editor.
  3. Find the <CourseStatsOverPar> header and identify the last course you played before the issue (it should have a big, normally impossible to achieve number).
  4. Replace the number of the said course with any number between 1 to 30.
  5. Save the file and launch the game. It should load the main menu and show a "Save Corrupted" error, which you can dismiss.
This will cause all statistics to reset and may clear your in-game inventory.
