So i dove into some of the other message boards (https://www.telltalegames.com/forums...ad.php?t=36822
) that were talking about this issue and I think that the issue is having empty save slots...if you do not have them populated with other save files then the game goes to one of the empty ones and loads that instead of your save file.
What I had to do was to take my backup copy, place it on the Xbox Harddrive and then copy that same save file to the other 2 save slots.
Then I loaded the one in the 3rd slot...I tried loading the save on the 2nd save slot, but after watching the "previous on" it did not carry over any of my choices...when I loaded the one in the 3rd slot, this one seemed to carry over my choices...can't be too sure, but it looks good.
You might want to try this.
