Game Choices Don't Carry Over

posted by tytyokokok on - Viewed by 1.1K users

Hi, I'm playing The Walking Dead on a Mac. When I finish Episode 1, the choices I made in the game don't carry over to Episode 2 (characters I saved are now dead and others alive, etc.) If I 'rewind' and play a bit of Episode 1 to change this, it doesn't make a difference. Any help?

    Did you stay through the credits? I did that mistake once by quitting back to the main menu during the credits. For some reason this don't save the episode.

  • I am encountering this same issue and it is most frustrating. I purchased your game specifically because I was enamored by the idea that my choices in the game would affect subsequent episode content, as boasted in your marketing. Please resolve this issue quickly, some of your customers are not getting what they paid for! Thank you for your time and prompt assistance.

          You have 2 active prefs.prop files.

          Please run this script to fix it. It will rename the prefs.prop in
          /Applications/TheWalkingDead.app/Contents/Resources/Pack/default/
          to deactivate it.

          • Just popping in to note that using iFunBox, it's possible to do this manually to fix the issue on the iOS version by renaming the default prefs.prop file. The bug exists there as well. I almost wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't chosen Doug, and the game clearly contradicts that as soon as I get to Episode 2. Might want to look into a fix for users who might not be comfortable digging in app innards with 3rd party programs.
