The continue option does not progress to the next episode just restarts the last section of the episode. If i attempt to start episode two no decisions transfer over.
I am running Windows 7 64 bit, have not uninstalled or reinstalled the game, on administrator. I chose Carley but the opening credits showed that I saved Doug. I tried clicking "Continue" from Episode 1 and replaying the last scene and I also tried clicking "Play" on Episode 2, getting the same results. I recently got the game from the Steam Summer Sale, after Episode 2 was released.
I start the game, click "Play" and select "Game 1" which is my only file. Although I completed Episode 1, it says Episode 1 from the menu. I click on Game 1 and then click Play, which takes me to the Episode 1 screen. I am able to view my stats which accurately reflect my choices from Episode 1. When I click "Continue" from this screen, it just replays the last scene from Episode 1 and brings me back to the main menu. When I click the arrow to go to Episode 2, I click "Play" and get the same results - the opening cutscene talks about Doug when I saved Carley. I have the Steam version and can't actually run the game as "Admin" from the Desktop icon but I tried running Steam as admin which didn't work.
I then saw warxsnake's post:

Or if you don't have the Steam version, its somewhere in your game DIR.
Do backups before overwriting anything.
Copy the prefs.prop file from your game's DIR folders, and overwrite it in your Documents\TTG\TWD folder
Go in game and load the save game with your finished EP1. Switch to EP2 in the chapter select and run it.
This worked for me when any other solution did not. My decisions carried over.
This worked for me. Move prefs.prop from your directory (either in your install folder or your Steam/common folder) into the folder in your documents. A great big thanks to warxsnake!
