TWD: Another save issue...

Yes, I know you must be seeing plenty of these, but I haven't heard of anyone else having my specific problem, so... here we go.

I've got the Steam version of the game. Episode 4 is installed. However, when I go to play it the game disregards my previous story choices and asks me to randomize. Obviously I'm not especially fond of this idea, so I tried to replay through the last few moments of Episode 3 on my most recent save.

When I finish Episode 3, however, the game suddenly treats Episode 4 as "coming soon" instead of installed. Very bizarre.

I've submitted a support email to Telltale but I'm not sure when/if they'll ever get back to me. Should I wait for some kind of patch or does anyone know of a solution to this issue?

    Please check your Steam directory in steamapps\common\the walking dead to see if there's another prefs.prop file. If so, please remove this file and relaunch Steam and the Walking Dead.

    There's only one such file in the "Default" directory. Should I get rid of it anyway?

    Edit: I'm aware that there's also a prefs.prop file under the "My Documents" directory for this game. Is only that one necessary?

    It worked! Thank you very much.

    I'm having this same issue, but I'm not seeing a prefs.prop file in the steamapps\common\the walking dead location on my computer.
