Alright this is dumb. This has been happening since the damn episode released. I figured it would get patched but NOPE!
So here's what happens. I load up my save it says "Episode 3". It puts me right at Episode 3 and gives me the Rewind option and Continue option. Obviously I don't want to do either of those. I've completed Episode 3. So I go over to Episode 4. Click "Play".
"Generate random story decisions for skipped episodes?"
No... I want to continue playing the game as I have the past 3 episodes, which involves carrying over my decisions.
Replaying my latest save of Episode 3, by clicking "continue" on episode 3. I then have to watch them on the train for 5min while I select one dialog choice. Then I have to watch the ep. 4 preview. Then I have to watch the credits. So then I'm back at main menu. Load up my "episode 3" save. "Episode 4...Coming Soon".
Exit game. Load up save, and now I'm back to the game not wanting to carry over my decisions to episode 4 and the option to continue Ep.3. Look I've done episode 3's ending sequence atleast 5 times now and nothing changes.
I've tried deleting the prefs.prop file from the steam walking dead folder.
I've tried copying the prefs.prop file from steam walking dead folder to the my documents/telltale games/walking dead folder and overwriting the one in there.
Look, I'm not playing the game if it's not carrying over my decisions, it kind of defeats the purpose.
