Like just about all of you, I've experienced the save bug where either my saves were not recognized, or they were recognized and the choices were scrambled. Many of the workarounds had not worked for me except for finding the "right" pref.props file in one of three different locations on my hard drive.
I haven't written off this game yet and I want to play it very badly, but I want it to be an enjoyable experience. I don't want to go on a wild goose chase every time I finish an episode looking for the right save and choices files.
I have spent over four hours troubleshooting TWD and completed episode one twice and I did eventually get my save back. But we shouldn't have to do that! Especially when these save game problems could be patched so easily!
I want to know why does TWD read and write to >>THREE DIFFERENT<< locations? I think we can all agree that if the game were forced to save and load from one designated location, most of these problems would disappear and the rest of us can enjoy Telltale's Game of the Year, right?
