Season 2 and saved games

posted by Hastor on - last edited - Viewed by 569 users
If a season 2 does happen, I'm wondering what the chances are of it referencing the save games from Season 1? All the eps of season 1 reference the name you pick in episode 1, so that everyone in the 30's calls you that name in every episode.

I'm mainly wondering because I'd prefer to play season 2 on a different device, but don't want to lose any of my decisions from the first season. I played season 1 on PS3, but since I bought it, have gotten a nice gaming PC. I hear it is a lot better on the PC, and it gets the episodes earlier, so I'd like to make that switch as long as I'm not missing out on anything that only affects those with Season 1 save games.

    The name setting is actually stored in the registry for Windows (not sure how it works for other devices). So for this season at least you can change the name people call Marty by editing the registry.

    As for carrying that kind of thing over to a possible second season, my guess is that they would make any additional seasons standalone and not reference too much from the first game.

    I don't want to burst any bubble here, but what exactly are the decisions you want to keep? To my knowledge, you can decide what alias Marty chooses, but everything else in the game is entirely predetermined. There simply aren't any more decisions which you could carry over to a next Season - it's not Mass Effect.
  • Not only that but I doubt that if there's a second season, there'll be any returns to the 1930's; that period had been done extensively and the season would likely begin in the future so it would be as irrelevant as "calvin klein" in 2015 or "clint eastwood" in 1931

    That's also very true. Imagine the rage when there's a new Season and Marty would immediately go back to 1931! :eek:
  • Wait, I played Episode 1 as a free Telltale.com download and I'm now playing Episode 2 as part of the Steam Telltale Pack. Is it going to call me by the name I picked in Ep. 1? I don't even remember what it was so I haven't noticed...
  • It's supposed to... some of us had issues with it though. I picked Michael Corleone in the first one and yet was Harry Callahan for the rest of it.
  • I picked Harry and it stuck. It seems to be a hit and miss thing that's easily corrected by going into the game's files and changing the alias file.
  • Weird, my game didn't keep the name. I guess it was a glitch with my first save file.

    The name is managed in a registry setting rather than a save file, so you can change it if you want to or if it hasn't worked quite right. Run regedit, then go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Telltale Games > BTTF > Player Alias.
  • Haha, Season 2... That's just funny.
