Battleblock Steam Lost Progress :(

Recommended Posts

I have some bad news... unfortunately, it sounds like the progress on your local machine may have gotten overwritten with an earlier, Steam cloud save. 

 

Steam games sync their progress to the cloud every so often. Sometimes (very rarely!) overwriting happens if you've been kicked out of the game or off Steam, or have been playing offline and make progress, and then connect back up to Steam.

 

However, you CAN take preventative measures to make sure this never happens again. Use these steps every time you've been playing offline, then connect back up to Steam!

 

1. Launch the game

2. Review the character select screen or map to determine whether you are missing levels, characters or money. This is a sign that the game is calling to a Steam cloud save with lost progress!

3. If you're missing anything, shut down the game IMMEDIATELY!!

** DO NOT enter into gameplay and finish a stage at this point, or your local data save will be overwritten to reflect the progress you see on the character select screen.  When the data re-syncs, you will find your missing progress has been lost permanently. ** 

4. Close the Steam client to force a re-sync between the local save on your PC and your Steam cloud save.

 

We're gamers too, and we know how frustrating lost progress can be. We hope these steps will help you!

Thanks guys! it's just the fact that I finished it a week earlier that made me a bit angry. I will do it again though!

 

Yeah, bummer ..... :( :( 

 

We definitely recommend you keep a backup of your game save files periodically if you plan on using Steam Cloud.

 

Here is an article we wrote on how to do this:

My Battleblock theater on Steam has no record of my progress, and I completed the story on normal a week ago! PLEASE HALP MEH :(

Did you exit to the menu to save? Try that.

Or if it doesnt work then idk what to tell you. Try using Lindsay's example.
