Yeah I got this problem way back when Episode 2 came out, and now here it is against with 3. I just finished the 2nd episode, but all that progress, wiped.
I spent 3 hours of my life just playing this thing, looking forward to seeing my decisions reflected in episode 3.. So there I was, episode 2 finished, I go back to the menu, load up my save, it automatically flicks over to episode 3 ... and it says 'coming soon'. Weird, since it said Play before I finished the episode before it, and it was saying episode 2 was 'coming soon' too.
I exit the game and come back, hoping that'll fix it. Instead, my save file has been reverted back to episode 1. Maybe the end of episode 1, I don't know. I don't care. I'm not going to spend another 3 hours of my life vainly hoping I won't get hit with this bug AGAIN.
Is this a thing with Windows 7? It's getting way too late in the game to have problems with Windows 7, it's not like I could have bought a computer without it, or purchased a copy of XP / transferred the license when my old machine broke down. XP isn't supported by Microsoft, Vista is a pile of junk, so if your game doesn't support Windows 7 you've got a very small market indeed.
Do we have to wait for Windows 8 before Telltale gets on these save game issues?
