Losing saved progress
So I decided to do a little marathon of the game, and when i returned my game has only saved at 36. I have got the achievements past 50 levels, is my save gone?

Sounds similar to the issue we have had with Revenge of the Titans. I think there may be some issues with Steam cloud saves.

Can we see the contents of your err.log and out.log?

where are these located? i don;t see anything in the base folder

They go under your user home dir, under .<game name>, so in your case, .droid_assault

nothing in err.log

No errors there then; so it must be the Steam cloud that's just not working properly. You are exiting the game normally and allowing Steam to write its cloud files aren't you?

yes i remember reloading the game on that same day fine, but when i went to bed and woke up it was back to that old state.

There was no cloud syncing error either, so i didnt have to replace the local save or update the cloud. I had no control!
