There's a glitch that prevents people from going online if any of their cars has custom skins that was downloaded from the skin website. They will have to make another PSN account to play online. Some were effected by it, some were not. The server of this game is connected to that site. Are you saying people are refusing to play the game when they can't use their skins? Because that's really stupid of them. At least that's what it sounds like. It will be really dumb if people only play this to look pretty.

So I have a chance of not being able to play the game? It's bad enough I am never going to get those glitched trophies but I may not be able to play the game on my account again?

If you have those skins then yeah you're not gonna be able to play, unless you make an alt account. Make a new one just to play online. Do you have skins on your cars?

I had the skins until I lost my save file and the skins vanished with the save file so I should be all set right?

Why can't we use custom skins now?

I don't know try going online and see if it works. The skin website is just messed up right now. You can't create skins or look at them in the website. Mortimer for some reason can still play online with his "Mortimer_TMA" account, which has skins but not his other skin account (MorTea_TMA).

I lost my skins because I had a save reset and this was before the skin website crashed and then when I go back I noticed the skin website was down and unable to sync them back on so because I lost my skins I should be fine.

No, that's not how It works. See the thing is that if you have skins on your save file prior to the website going down, as long as that save file Is intact you're set.

However, If you had, say deleted your save data (thinking It would-it doesn't) to help your situation, afterward, when you try to play online again, the game must redownlod every skin on your account, therefore with the website being nonexistent, your account is thrusted into an infinite loop of attempting to download the skins that no longer exist---well because SONY took the site down.

If you have your save file intact, & you stuck with that through the network tweak that "fixed" the issue (Only for people with data intact) you should be fine.

I'm one of the people not so lucky, as my PS3 had to be reformatted, which means like It or not I'm locked out.

Lol I just found out I still have my custom skins and I am still able to play, that's weird. I have hard time joining other people's games but I can host with no problem.
