If you do, this file could be cause of your problems. Your prefs file should only be in your Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead directory. Please remove the prefs file from your Steam subdirectory (copy it to your desktop, just in case) and run the game again. If you see the proper choices, you can delete the prefs file now on your desktop. If you do not see the correct choices, close your game and delete the prefs from your Documents\...\The Walking Dead folder and move the prefs file from your desktop into this folder.
Also, reinstalling Steam has helped a lot of people play the game and avoid crashes since Steam started converting game files recently.
None of which worked. Every preference file fails to show any
save files, only giving the option of either picking from 3 empty slots, or going to the "Pick your UI" option. (Which equates to the same thing.)
This is even using a preferences file that I coped over the second I saw that it wasn't having Episode 3 show up, in addition to trying the preference file already in my documents. Something is completely borked, and cost me all the time I spent on this game.
