MyPet Dungeon Progress removed

Darelius 3 months ago updated by Lee "Noontide" Moon (Designer & Community Manager) 3 months ago 4

Like noted here, i will post the bug now (or i try)

https://steamcommunity.com/app/230190/discussions/0/1643169167150982455/

First i estart the game, select Singleplayer, then "Mein Hobby Dungeon" (I have the german version).

Now i will start the first Mission (Deepwater i guess)(easy mode to make the game fast wih 150%)

No Godmode, Mutators standard (never used that, by the way)

Random Theme and workers.

(Picture 1)

Now i finish the game easy with points

(Picture 2)

And there i "could" go to next level

(Picture 3)

Now i close the game and start new, the progress is lost.

Hi Darelius,

Thanks for submitting the info to us. Looks like one of the images you include is repeated? The final two images appear to be identical.

I'll have a chat with the programmer who knows the most about how MPD handles its saving to see where this could possibly be falling down. Unfortunately, he's on vacation until next week so I'll try to get back to you then.


Cheers,


Lee

As i said, after PC restart its lost not after game restart...

All other Progress (Campaign untold depth or so) is saved.

Hi Darelius,

Alright I've had a chat with the code team and they're as stumped as I am. The behaviour described doesn't really make sense it sounds like some time between a windows reset the save file is becoming inaccessible or being deleted entirely.

There are a few questions I'd like to ask for our confirmation:

  • Are you playing the game on Steam? This is not a DRM-Free version I.e. GOG?
  • Do you play the game in offline mode or while logged into Steam. WFTO's save games sync to the Steam Cloud so there's one possibility of something happening there but unlikely without it notifying you. And shouldn't trigger on a computer restart rather it always syncs when a game is stopped and started.

With regards to investigating further and assuming you are on Steam can you try the following:

  1. Navigate to WFTOs save folder your Steam User folder (I.e. C:\Program Files\Steam\Userdata\(Your UserID)\230190\remote
  2. Locate the WFTO_Progress file. Right click it and open properties check when it was last modified. (This file saves MPD Progress, Ungergames Progress and Custom Campaign Progress)
  3. Play the game and complete progress for MPD and a Custom Campaign or Undergames Campaign
  4. Check the file's modified date has updated
  5. Copy and Paste the file elsewhere in your PC, multiple places and a different drive minimum ideally. Make sure you leave a copy in the remote folder.
  6. Restart the game and check progress is still present
  7. Restart your PC and check progress. If no longer there, check the modified date on the file again see if it has reverted
  8. Move the copied file back into the remote folder and try again to see if progress is present again.

Let us know how you get on.

Cheers,

Lee
