When starting Episode 2 my save history reverts back to where I rewinded in Episode 1

posted by WaterPanda on - last edited - Viewed by 2.5K users

Whenever i try to play Chapter 2 it doesn't read my save file from Episode 1. I did that whole prefs.propp stuff and it worked initially where my finished episode 1 data was recovered. But everytime I start Episode 2 it only keeps the save point up to where I initially used the rewind function in Episode 1 at Chapter 5 and everything after that is erased.

Please Help! Thank you

  • Same. I finished episode 1, and when I started episode 2, it was showing choices I didn't make.

    Also, I saved Carley... and episode 2 was showing me Doug. o:

    Please try renaming the prefs.prop in
    C:\Users\Kalvin\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead
    to prefs.prop.orig to deactivate it

    Then move the prefs.prop from
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Walking Dead\Pack\default
    to
    C:\Users\Kalvin\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead

  • Now whenever i play Episode 2 it just erases all of my data and says that I haven't even bought the other episodes as they are now labeled "coming soon"

    That doesn't look right.
    The prefs.prop in the savegame folder is too small to be correct for your savegames.

    However there is still (or again) one in
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Walking Dead\Pack\default
    I would try moving it to
    C:\Users\Kalvin\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead
    once more, replacing the existing prefs.prop

  • Same thing is happening. It's just erasing all my data now when I try to play episode 2

    Does the prefs.prop in
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Walking Dead\Pack\default
    always come back when you start the game?

  • No It's not there right now

    It is in the support tool data you just posted though.

  • Is it in this one? I'm looking at the folder and I don't see a prefs.prop

    Yes it is.

    prefs.prop in install location:

    Directory of C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Walking Dead\Pack\default
