[TWD] Episode 2 refuses to start, only given a ''Rewinding'' option

posted by Axedquestion on - last edited - Viewed by 1K users
As the title says, i can't start episode 2. I've played through it before with no problems, and i have finished all of the episodes. Playing on the PC, on Steam. I have had problems with episode 2 before, the infamous ''black screen with the axe icon'' and i did the whole delete a file in your TWD folder, at which point it functioned perfectly. But now, as the title says, whenever i try to start episode 2 all i get is a warning that if i rewind, all my choices are going to be deleted, and it gives me a ''do you want to continue'' question where i can choose yes or no, and no matter what i take the screen just remains black, with nothing else happening. Any help would be appreciated.

    I fear i don't know a way to help you, and keep your savegames.

    Please try what happens if you make a backup copy of your savegame folder ( ~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/ ), and then delete the original.

    Then try for all episodes, if starting in an empty save slot with random choices works.
  • I have given up on saving my game that i played, im more interested in making my game work properly at this point, what can i do so i can play the game through without all the problems ive been having ??

    should i try un installing the walking dead and re installing it ?

    Did you try deleting the savegames as i described in my previous post?
  • Yeah i tried that before, ive done everything you have suggested but to no luck, after deleting the same files i tries to play from the beginning, got to episode to but then it said all the episodes were coming soon but i have already bought the whole package.

    I don't really know how to help you.
    Deleting the savegame folder, reinstalling TWD and reinstalling steam were most likely to help.

    One last thing i can suggest you to try is creating a new user account on your Mac, and starting the game there.
