Flask count reset after format

Hey guys,

I decided to format my PC yesterday after a few issues I had with other stuff. To cut a long story short I copied over my steamapps folder from another drive so all my games were intact. Started up AW and steam cloud got my save file so I could carry on from where I was, but the flask count has been reset, I picked up a flask and it said 1 out of 100 It should have been around 20 or so I reckon. Not a biggie I am doing more then one play through anyway, just thought I should mention it.

Cheers

Same with manuscripts. I guess these are not linked to the save file.

No-one else thinks this is a bug?

We've seen a few of these reports but the game doesn't do anything except place files to that folder and Steam handles the cloud sync.

We're kind of at a loss on what we could do about this...

We've tested on two PCs, we've tested crashing one pc in the middle of gameplay etc and can't find a clear case where something in our code would be causing this.

This is the folder you need to backup: Program Files\Steam\userdata\

Then find: 108710\remote

The savefile is actually called: savegame.aws

I originally reported this on the Steam forums last week & several others have done so since but I think its down to steamcloud sync issues. Now I manually backup the savefile just incase & have not noticed any issues playing on 2 different PC's if the savegame is out of sync it produces a msg onscreen asking me if I want to overwrite it.

I notice on other Steamworks games steamcloud is not that reliable I think on Fallout New Vegas in the end Bethesda just disabled it totally!

I've lost my save totally, would someone PLEEEEEEAAAASE share a save with me? I got up to Ep 4 and really really don't want to start over meticulously gathering pages and thermas. I would really appreciate it.

We have fixed a bug related to this in the upcoming 1.03 update.

Still, wanted to say I'm sorry as the update is not going to bring your stats back.

Re: Flask count reset after format

Do stats numbers contribute to achievements over multiple playthroughs? Example: I've got 800 birds killed by the time i finished the game. I've started a new game, my bird count is carried over, will I get the achiev?

edit: Yes I just confirmed this works.

I missed this post, thanks for fixing the problem. We would accept your apology but it gives us another reason to do another playthrough
