I have the same problem. Prior to this the game worked flawlessy but then I somehow lost my saves and this issue occured. Did you ever get past it?

I have the same issue. I was playing the game just fine all day, it did crash a few times. Now all my progress is gone and it won't let me choose a mask.

I know how to fix it.

go to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\hotline_miami

find "saves" and open it with notepad
when you open it, you'll see the first line full of 000000000
change the first 0 to 1


(note: if you want all the masks, change all the 0's to 1. or if you want one specific mask, learn which one it is and change it to 1. richard is the first mask so change the first 0 to 1)

Awesome that worked! Do you know if there is any way to get my original progress back? I was only about 6 levels in so no big deal if I have to beat them again. But for future reference in case it happens again. Thank you so much!

Nice work Omeghon, I've seen this problem mentioned quite a few times so it's good to have a solution until the patch is released.
