OK, so after the false start with Ep1, the silence while we waited for Ep2, the baffling wait between the Xbox version and the PC version, I've *finally* been able to install Ep2! Yay etc!!!
Only it's not picking up on my bloody Ep1 decisions.
All I get is an option to either load an old ep1 save (I actually played through the final scene at the Motel again to see if it auto-continued to the next EP), or start a New Game with Ep2 and "Randomized Decisions".
Seriously Telltale - this is unacceptable now. I've been patient but it's gone way past a joke.
In the interests of documenting the problem, I...
[*]Originally installed the Steam version (I paid for the Telltale Version, but obviously the launch got screwed up so I used the steam key I was sent)
[*]Finished Ep 1 - and indeed all of my decisions are still viewable on the stats page
[*]Got Ep 2 through a steam update of The Walking Dead Game
[*]My decisions weren't carried over.
[*]Re-installed + redownloaded Ep1 + Ep2 via steam
[*]Uninstalled the steam version
[*]Installed the Telltale Version
[*]Downloaded Ep2 using the Telltale Version
[*]Partway through the download the game stopped saying "downloading xxx%" reverted to the "Get" button and froze there for the duration of the download (I tracked the download in Windows Task Manager by basically watching the network usage)
[*]STILL couoldn't get it to pick up on my past decisions
[*]Ran as admin + every other compatability tweak I can think of
[*]Came to the forum to make this post
[*]Which brings us to now.
Windows 7 pro x64, 8GB memory, AMD FX-8120, GeForce GTX570 and so on and so forth. On the off-chance that anyone on the Telltale team with a technical insight into the game's workings happens to glance at the forum, I'm happy to upload whatever error/log dumps you desire. Let's face it - it's not like I'll be doing anything interesting instead, such as playing the game I paid for 5 episodes of in advance, right?:rolleyes:
