step 2

Before you load the game to test and look for your Custom Content, we need to delete caches and/or thumbnails.


step 3

After we've done that, load a NEW game.

  • Does the content now show up in a new game?
  • You can Quit without saving now.


If when loading a NEW game, the content shows up, try next on one of your save games.

  • Does the content now show up in your save game?
  • You can Quit without saving here, too.


Results

Next Step

Is the issue with newly installed or previously installed content?
