The Wolf among us: the game doesn't save

posted by nornaurd on - Viewed by 10.5K users

Hi!
I purchased TWAU today and played for some time. While I was playing the saving in process icon appeared few times. Then I quit the game, and logged in again. There were no save files and I had to start all over again. Also, every time I run the game, I have to choose the correct screen resolution over and over again.
Am I doing something wrong? Maybe there is a save button that I didn't see, and I shall do the saving manually?
Please help me to resolve this problem.
Thank you.
P.S. Also, I didn't run the installers from vcredist folder, cause I don't have such folder in _CommonRedist directory.

    It's a bug, and it's mentioned in the support FAQ.
    This can be caused by having certain special characters in the name of the windows user account. Please create a new Windows user account with only characters from a-z and try playing there, until it is sorted out.

  • Yeah, it was exactly as I said earlier. I had to change preferences of My documents folder, giving it an english name (changing it's location in fact). Now the game saves and I can see the save files in My documents\Telltale Games\The Wolf Among Us. Who am I to judge, but seriously, guys. Not all the people on this planet live in english speaking countries.
