Aaaand my boss entries are gone too. Now I guess that means I can't get 100% completion without restarting.. wtf :/

I had a 5 hour session, got half way up the tower.. quit out via the in game menu.. launched it again, and I have an empty book again. This sucks.

Yeah, something's definitely messed up here - lost my arena info. Kept ex character unlocks but all the arenas are missing their information and showing up back in the store to repurchace.

just had that happen to me as well :p

Basically, after loading current saves the monster and character lists are wiped out. After collecting some monster data, saving and then exiting the game. When you re-load the game another time the list is still empty and all the extra work trying to restore what was gone previously goes down the drain as well.

isnt there something that can be done about this cause this is crazy. i am a achievement hunter and having one of the acheievements be that of collecting data that disappears cuase major headaches.

Well, its a bit loo late technically unless Sara is willing to provide a full unlock list of the data. Sara will need to correct me, but the record.tp and record.ta2 files in the save directory may house the data for the time attack and monster records, since multiple saves from different playthrough contribute to the total monster/character data list.

There is always finding a trainer to also unlock the said database if you are an achievement hunter.

Eeeergh! This is awful, but I'll have a fix for it shortly. I'm so sorry, guys...

Stuff like this is why I'm always willing to throw my money at XSeed.

Hi Sara,

Thank you for your work on patching this issue quickly. The fix seems to work after testing that the Arena info and Monster entries are saving after quitting. However, is there any way to restore what we've lost due to this issue? My monster books are now all blank, and the Arena levels require unlocking again.
Sara  [developer] Jul 24, 2013 @ 7:08pm 
Unfortunately there isn't any way to easily restore them. I'll try to think of something, but I can't make any promises. Steam does know when you have the 'all entries' achievements and such in these games, but it has no clue about individual details... Using someone else's save files for the records will work, though.
