This can occur when saves are corrupted or when they are manually reset by holding the spacebar while launching the game. The only recourse is to replay episodes 1 and 2 or play episode 3 with randomly generated choices.
I guess it's not a big deal to replay them, but I'm going to wait until all five episodes are out. I don't want to risk this same bug every single time a new episode comes out. Grrr...
Surely they jsut have to create a small compiler program that you plop in your saves file and it recreats the prefs file WITH the saves present in the folder. Sounds like they just can't be bothered, because it IS a big deal to replay them. Nothing is skippable, and if you're replaying just to get your old choices back you're just sitting throught he same scenes again, about 4-5 hours of your life gone replaying that and that;s JUST for episodes 1 and 2. Then of course you gotta go through ep 3 again.
