WalkingDead101.exe error and all savegames gone

posted by Stefprivat on - last edited - Viewed by 512 users
Hi,

the error "WalkingDead101.exe has stopped working" occurs when I try to launch the game. I tried everything i found at the internet and the game launches now in window mode. I have to open the "WalkingDead101.exe" settings in my explorer for that (don´t have to change anything in the dialog).

But:
If i shut down the PC and start the game in the above described way after rebooting, all savegames are gone.

I wrote to the steam support and made what they said. It still doesn´t work.
I verified the Game Cache Files, startet the dxdiag.exe, the nvidia driver is at 8.17.13.142 and Windows 7 is up to date. I also re-instaled the game and made all the stuff again and tried to run the game without internet conection.

Any ideas what to do?

Greetings from Germany,
Stefan

  • Hi Stefan,

    I'm not sure why nobody has responded to your inquiry here after over a week... I feel your pain, I'm experiencing the same issues. I've "lost" all of my saves, even though they are physically still in the same save directory.

    I was able to remedy the issue of "WalkingDead101.exe has stopped working" by doing the following:

    Locate The Walking Dead executable in the game install directory. I purchased via Steam as well. For example my directory was:

    C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\the walking dead\WalkingDead101.exe

    Right-click on the exe and select the compatibility tab. Then select "Run as administrator" and choose "Windows XP SP3" as the compatibility mode.

    I was able to run the game, unfortunately my save games were still not showing up. Hopefully this will be fixed soon. For a game that is story driven, it's kind of a buzzkill when your story is erased...

    This response took 5 minutes of my time. Why a staff member could not respond to you in a more timely matter is beyond me...
  • Hi,

    as a software developer myself i know that it´s nearly impossible two write bug-free complexe software. But your game doesn´t even start and it looses all savegames. It´s like you´d start Photoshop and it deletes your PSDs.

    So can you at least write something about your bugfixing plans?

    And if there are bugs in software i write, my customers can call me or write email and guess what – they will get an answer.

    Poor work guys. Greetings,
    Stef
  • Same problem here. I can't even get my game to load.
