My support_data_mac file for TWD

posted by oldyellerdeservedit on - last edited - Viewed by 480 users

Attached is the support_data_mac.zip file for my MacBook Pro running OSX Lion.

I have done everything that MattP, DjNDB, and others have said. Yet, I am still not able to play Episode 2 with my decisions. Please use this file to create a fix.

    Good move.
    prefs.prop Locations:
    -rw-r--r-- 1 nateblank staff 29K Feb 13 19:51 /Users/nateblank/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/The Walking Dead/TheWalkingDead.app/Contents/Resources/Pack/default/prefs.prop
    -rw-r--r-- 1 nateblank staff 2.3K Feb 13 19:54 /Users/nateblank/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/prefs.prop

    You have multiple prefs.prop files, and the one in the savegame folder appears to be corrupted.
    Please open a terminal and run the following command line. It's a single line command:

    mv ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/The\ Walking\ Dead/TheWalkingDead.app/Contents/Resources/Pack/default/prefs.prop ~/Library/Application\ Support/Telltale\ Games/TheWalkingDead/prefs.prop

  • I... think... it... WORKED! As of right now, it continued into Episode 2 with my decisions. Someone needs to pay this man (or woman)!

    Thank you, DjNDB!

    It is back to the familiar hiccups. It will not allow me to continue into Episode 3. Is it safe to run that script again? In other words, the script was not tied to any specific save was it?

    Instead, please run the support tool again, so I can see what's going on at this moment.

  • I wanted to see where it would take me if I started the game and it brought me back to almost the beginning. Also, for the past 3 days the save game in Slot 1 (the only save I have) says that it is from 3 days ago, the 14th.

    I apologize, I meant almost all the way to the beginning of Episode 2.

    This time there is no second prefs.prop on your system, so the previous fix won't work.
    Also the prefs.prop is smaller than the last time, which means that some progress might have been lost.

    Did you run the support tool before or after starting at the beginning of Episode 2?

    I mistakenly ran the script after posting my first reply today and before you told me to run the support tool first.

    Oh, i see. Then you must have overwritten your progress that way :(
    If you didn't get an error message running the script, then there indeed was a second prefs.prop before. Looking at the result, the one you overwrote was the one we would have wanted to keep.
    That's why i wanted to see the output first. It depends on the size and date of the prefs.prop which one should be kept or removed.
    Unless you have any backup of the prefs.prop or a way to restore a previous state, your Episode 2 progress is probably lost for good.

    Fortunately, I hacked Time Machine to run on a non-Apple network drive and should be able to revert back to before running the script. Instead of reverting my entire OS back to that time, what folder(s) should I look for?
