Thank you for the ability to download episode 4. My last save game was after completion of episode 2. I had many disconnects downloading both episode 3 & 4.
I start a game with episode 3 and play until after the second autosave. I exit the game and restart, and it doesn't even think I downloaded episodes 2-4. Remembering the fiasco about the prefs.prop file and it's 2 locations being the install loc and my username, I find it insists on writing to the install location.
I copy my original prefs.prop to the install location and restart the game again. I again have to restart episode 3. After the second autosave, i exit and restart the game.
And guess what? It doesn't even know I played until the second autosave. This repeats every time I try to play this game. I have had to watch the recap of episode 2 and begin of episode 3 six times now.
I will continue trying to find an answer on these forums, but I am very close to requesting a refund. This is the last Telltale game I will ever buy.
Ok, I seem to have it working now.
I had 2 playthroughs in 2 save slots. I backed everything up and created 2 different sets of prefs.prop and save games for each playthrough. I deleted 1 of the playthroughs in each set for each particular playthrough. So, I have 2 sets of files and copy them to proper directories depending on which I want to play.
One playthrough runs fine with the prefs.prop file on the actual install location; it reads and writes to that file. The other playthrough reads from the install location, but, then writes to the user directory where the save files are. After quitting, I have to manually copy the prefs.prop file from the user folder into the install directory.
This is now working for me, but, is ridiculous. Telltale games needs to hire new programmers before they lose all of their customers.
