Episode 4 keeps resetting to Episode 1

posted by Kingellesar on - last edited - Viewed by 282 users

So played episode 4 for an hour last night, then went straight to dashboard, loaded up and it went back to episode 1, came on here and realised it must have been because I went straight to dashboard.

Second attempt, another hour played, exited game from menu, came back on, episode 1 reset.

Third attempt, maybe i need to go to main menu THEN exit game? Same thing, it resets to episode 1.

Thought this was meant to be fixed? Don't say 'try this' because I have tried all three ways of exiting the game and none of them seem to save the status of my game.

It OBVIOUSLY needs a fix, so many issues people seem to be running into. At the moment I regret spending the points, i mean its a joke i couldnt start episode 3 without buying 4 and 5.

  • Same thing is happening to me. I have episodes 1 through 4 installed on my 360. I was up to chapter 2 in episode 4 try to load it up and am taken back to episode 1. I also tried to rewind to chapter 1 in episode 4 with the same result. tried to dashboard and completely restart my 360 and none of those work as well. I also suffered from the train glitch a few days back. This game although i like it is getting more frustrating to play than it is fun.

  • Hi,

    Yeah real shame because I really enjoyed 1-3. Train glitch at least had a fix! No fix for 4 though :(

  • Yep it sure is a shame. Hopefully we'll get a quick response to this issue. I wonder if anyone else is having the same problem we are.

  • Happens to me too. Apparently there is a patch on the way. However, I have been able to get my progress back every time so far.

    Sometimes I need to go back to the main menu and select the chapter again. For example, the first time I pick Chapter 4, it loads Chapter 1. Go back to main manu. The second time I pick Chapter 4, it loads Chapter 4 from the very beginning. Go back to the main menu. The THIRD time I pick Chapter 4, the "rewind" option is available, finally allowing me to pick my checkpoint.

    It's worked several times in the past for me. Today, that little trick didn't work, until I copied my savegame to slot 3. Then I did the same as above, and it worked again. The slot 3 trick was something I saw mentioned in another thread.

    Good luck.

  • Wow... I was going to buy Episode 4 so I could continue playing due to the train/switch 9 glitch in Episode 3. I really don't want to spend any more money on this game if that is happening now. Also after reading all those complaints about the disc version. Scared of wasting money on something I can't play. =\

    Doesn't work for me :( Just stays stuck on Episode 1 and have to manually select episode 4 and start it. Thankfully it seems to select my choices everytime I load up episode 4 though so I guess it's just a waiting game until they "fix" it.

    The issue you are describing was patched with the Title Update released last weekend. Please ensure you acquire this Title Update, and you should no longer experience an issue with Episode 1 restarting when loading saves from other episodes.

  • Well I assume I do have the title update as I have played it online only. Not even played it offline as my Xbox is always connected to Live. How can you check if the title update is in place?

    When you start your xbox and log in to your profile, check to make sure you are logged into xbox live. If you are, start the Walking Dead and if you do not have the latest Title Update, you will be prompted to install it.

    If you are not prompted, then you have the Title Update, and should not be experiencing this issue. If this is the case, can you please let me know what type of xbox you have, what episodes you have installed, how many save slots you've used, and what your progress is in each save slot?

  • I must have title update then, booted it up and nothing popped up.

    Ok so:

    Xbox 360 Slim 250gb
    Episodes 1-5 Installed

    Save slots: I only used 1 to begin with, but then used the copy save to slots 2 and 3 to recover my choices for episode 4, so they are as follows:

    Save 1 Episode 1
    Save 2 Episode 1
    Save 3 Episode 1

    I can start episode 4 fine but as soon as it autosaves, I back out to main menu, load up my saves, it will say "Save 1 Episode 4", click load then it resets to Episode 1.
