Progress not saved
Playing on a Mac OSX 10.6.8. Was working fine a couple days ago, but for some reason when i got back into the game today none of my progress was there.

Thank you.

I've been getting this issue as well, mac osx 10.8.5, esj v1.07
Been wiped 4 or 5 times now. While I love the game, getting all the stars is becoming difficult when I have to keep playing it through again hahahaha

My progress has disappeared.
I was about halfway through World 3, and now I'm back to the first level. The save was fine for weeks, but is now just gone. Is there any way to recover my progress? I don't know if I want to start over from the beginning.

Same issue here, is there any fix? I have write permissions on esj.sav, but I tried moving the save file from the folder and it still loaded my save game anyway (but still would not save any further progress), suggesting it's pulling the data from somewhere else (Steam Cloud?).

I had a similar Issue, where I wouldn't lose all progress just the progress made after a certain point. I used to just use Alt+F4 to quit the game but closing it regularly (by pressing select on the controller to get to the start screen and then pressing select again) seemed to fix the issue. Btw also running v1.08 on Linux

I had a temporary fix by removing all read and write permissions on the Steam Cloud save file. This will cause it to error out every time you launch and just use the local save file, which works fine. For some reason though if you try to play offline it just wipes your save file entirely, so keep a backup of the local one somewhere. I'll write a guide on the commands when I'm next on Linux.


1) Create a backup of your local save file:

cp ~/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/ElectronicSuperJoy/esj.sav ~/esj.sav

2) Delete the Steam Cloud save file

rm ~/.local/share/Steam/userdata/99880805/244870/remote/esj.sav

3) Create a new file

touch ~/.local/share/Steam/userdata/99880805/244870/remote/esj.sav

4) Remove all permissions

chmod -r-w-x ~/.local/share/Steam/userdata/99880805/244870/remote/esj.sav
