Telltale Autumn Sale

Beat the game, saves only on Chapter 4?

So I recall beating Chapter 4, stopping, coming back and noticing that Chapter 4 didn't save completely. It left me just at the end of Chapter 4, so I replayed it quickly for like 2 minutes and continued onto Chapter 5 to beat the game.

I come back to play 400 days several months later, and I don't have a save data for Chapter 5. It still says 4.

But even weirder is that the save for chapter 4 is even earlier than what it was when I found it glitched originally. I'm like in the middle of Chapter 4 as opposed to the end which I've never had happen before.

What gives and is there anyway to fix this?

    I don't see anything unusual in the files.

    Sadly that also means there's no easy fix in sight.

    If you .zip and upload your prefs.prop and *.save files i can take a look at them.
    Please upload it as a single .zip file to an instant filehoster and post the download link.

    Its super weird because its not just the end of Chapter 4, its like smack in the middle and I have no intention of replaying the whole school bit and the end of Chapter 5. It somehow went backwards.

    The game loads save_49.save, which is your latest .save file. It's as if the game didn't save the rest of your playthrough at all.

    I fear your progress is lost.

    That won't restore the progress, because it already loads the latest .save file available.

    Also it is a very bad idea to do that, because having 2 prefs.prop is actually the cause of most savegame issues i see.
