    Yes something like that. DLC doesn’t match the core version of the game.
    I’ve tried that since the latest update.
    Deleted and reinstalled the game.
    Always the six same routes that are affected.
    It seems players experiences are all different on this game. Like I read technical posts sometimes and I’ve never encountered any of these issues people report.

    wow that’s crazy you are getting the old “out of date dlc doesn’t match the core”

    only suggestion I have is from the guide really.
    Delete the entire PS4 game (this will inc the dlc) power off the console. (You haven’t had it in rest mode have you?) and pop the base game back on, try the questionable dlc after downloading again and launch the game. If you are still getting the out of date stuff, might need a ticket.

    to my knowledge that error was solved some weeks after the update in late august.

    I'm getting annoyed now - How much more do I have to keep deleting - after the last update this week - Ive lost BML again!......I for one will not be buying any more DLC until there is a solution found, no matter what or where it is - Fed up of playing the Hokey-Cokey with DTG DLCs now. I have, until any releases since BML, every DLC but my money is staying where it is as thats the only leverage I now have. I will check back on the Forums (and Tuesdays stream) to keep up to date on progress but sadly for now my DTG days on my PS5 are over for now. Off to find some other etertainment that works and doesn't get me wound up in the free leisure time I have.

    This is getting frustrating now. Right now we still only have the workaround to use to get certain content back and that was something the community found.

    The short term fix is still MIA with no word on time frame, which completely fills me with dread on how long the long term fix will take (with DTG I wouldn't be surprised if the PS6 came first)

    Then to rub salt in the wound I have an exclamation mark in game around the store telling me to expand my collection... Which I already bleedy well own

    You don't want to know where I want to stick the exclamation mark

    So the roadmap now has the PS5 update limix fix on it... In the 'in production' section.

    So realistically speaking we are looking at at least over a month before we get access to our paid content again

    Just unbelivable. No wonder the community managers are giving this section a wide berth

    I’m very eager to know if it’ll mean having to start over… again.

    Just got home but if you watched tonight's stream on the "State of Play" in layman's terms what did they say about the Sony fiasco? The trophies and the limit of how much DLC you own

    I'm still digesting it all. But for dlc limit Matt said it was a limit on how much dlc the game could mount in one go (think like USB memory stick mounting to a pc).
    they were exploring how to do user selected mounting with changes to UI to assist this. Result intends to be you mount up the dlc you need.
    (Would be good if for layering such work included automatically mounting up the dlc needed)
    An upshot is the idea may also benefit other platforms by reducing the memory overhead each dlc adds to the game whether you use it or not.

    I add, timescale for the work not talked about.

    For trophies, tbh I didn't understand what Matt said.

    For trophies:

    PS4 and PS5 work in completely different ways.

    For PS4, you had one list of trophies for a game with a specific numbers of trophies it can have. When DTG reached that limit, they negotiated additional lists with Sony, resulting in the 3 lists we‘ve got.

    For PS5, one game has access to 50 groups (that‘s what they‘re called), each of which has a finite number of trophies in them. The base game trophies use one group, each DLC uses another group on its own. DTG is coming up on that 50 limit and is currently talking to Sony to figure out whether this restriction to 50 is arbitrary (to make sure no one goes crazy with the numbers of trophies) or a software limitation. If it‘s arbitrary, they could negotiate for additional groups similiar to the additional lists for PS4. If it‘s a software limitation, there probably won‘t be any trophies going forward.

    Thanks for the heads up...looking back at the release of the PS5 and how bad that was...Just hope Matt and the team can sweet-talk Sony to figure a solution.... if not can we send the boys around to sort it out old skool?

    I thought I heard Matt say that they were saving their remaining groups for Routes, and not wasting them on Locos. Did I hear that right?

    It has not yet been resolved so you will not be able to see all your add-ons if you are above the DLC limit I’m afraid.
