TWD S2: Episode 3 previous choices are wrong/broken.

posted by SumoSpartan on - Viewed by 2.7K users
Hi,

So I returned to playing TWD S2 yesterday, I'd forgotten I hadn't completed Ep 2, I started Ep 3 and quickly realised I hadn't done Ep 2 as the game said it'd make previous choices for me (eek!) so I quit Ep 3 and started Ep 2 instead.

I've now played through Ep 2 so started Ep 3, and all the choices it showed me in the intro are wrong, and not the choices I made in Ep 2. It appears to have saved this broken set of choices :(

How can I fix this? Is there a 'choice editing' tool of some kind? I'm presuming there is.

Thanks.

(fyi, I would post the dxdiag results of the TWD tool, but, the cmd process breaks while dxdiag is getting info. I am a game developer so, you'll just have to take my word that the W8.1 machine I'm on has every driver and firmware update, and is of a pretty high spec - neither of which should be a factor in the problem I have.)

    Can you please clarify whether you are playing on the Steam version, or the Telltale Games version of the game? Also, if you are playing on Steam, do you have Steam Cloud Syncing enabled?
    • Hi Mike,

      Steam version, yep cloud syncing is enabled. I play at work (Sumo Digital) and at home.

      I'm guessing you're going to tell me it'll have saved the random options the game chose when I ran Ep 3 before running Ep 2, and now as that save is cloud sync'd: I'm screwed.

      ...though I do hope that's not the case, lol. :)

            Can you please clarify if when you run the support tool batch file, it keeps running after the dxdiag breaks? The more important part that I would be checking is your save file structure. Please try running the batch file again, and wait a few extra minutes to see if the Support Tool program finishes.

                    After looking over your support tool information, everything looks to be in order. Unfortunately if you are still seeing the wrong choices show up, I am out of potential solutions, other than rewinding to the beginning of Episode 2, and then replaying through the episode.

                    If you are still seeing the wrong choices, the only other option would be to delete your Season Two game saves, and replay the second season from the beginning. Again, my apologies for any difficulties this has caused.

                      Don't you guys even have a tool to alter the choices manually by now? I mean, were developers here, we know QA has one that works in release, just not release final.

                        My apologies, unfortunately we do not have a tool to alter your choices manually. I thank you for your feedback, and will make sure to pass it along to the team!
                        • Well, this is utterly rubbish.

                          I'm done. I'm out. Not buying any more TWD and not playing on through S2 any more. Honestly, as one developer to another: this is an appalling result.
