This, though I haven't had it happen in the last two days.

Game forgets that you've completed scenarios after you close the game. Completed a few of them, came back later to find them all locked again.

I've lost the ability to unlock achievements. Was working on the Necroa Virus Origin achievement lines, ran through all of them, then find that the last one(DarkWater) didn't unlock. I ran it a second time and got nothing, then tried for a completely different one(Bacteria Master) and still nothing.

I've also had it forget about the scenarios as well.

RE: Known issues and Bug report thread
Yes - we are investigating the issue of some players having their progress locked and hoping to submit a fix which will sort it next week. Sorry Sad

Thanks. Nice to see you are already working on a fixSmile

Just seen you updated your original post.

Yes I use energy saving mode but I usually quit games properly before switching off although it's possible I could have forgot to do it a couple of times

Welp, the achievements just unlocked(about 24 hours later). Had this happen on other games(Destiny), so it could just be an XBox One thing.

As for the scenarios; I do not use energy-saving mode. Just tried to recreate the bug with no success. Completed Black Death again, closed the game, hard reset the system(I always hard shut down), and my progress is still there.

At least I can give the scenarios another go.

Hard shutdown is more or less the same as shutting down while using energy saving mode

RE: Known issues and Bug report thread
fuegonomics here, big plague fan, but Im also having the progress lock issue

I do not use energy saver mode. I properly quit out of the game each time. I am stuck at Normal, on the Necroa Virus, and my actual progress should be PAST the Necroa Virus on brutal.

Not only is my game progress relocking itself, but my gene perks are also relocking themselves.

Not sure why you are having a problem recreating this issue, I have had to play through normal 4 times now, and each time I return to the game, I am stuck on normal, at Necroa, with almost none of my gene perks unlocked. It is not just a somewhat recurring issue, it is happening every time I play, without fail. I can exit out and return to the game an hour later, and the same issue plays itself out, I have to start all over again with everything before Necroa/normal locked.

Fearing that it would happen again, when I finished my last session, I started a Prion game, on brutal, with all of the perks I had unlocked on that last playthrough, and I infected my first person, and saved the game. I can access that saved game just fine and play on brutal, with all my perks. If I exit out of the saved game, I am stuck where I was, back on Normal, at Necroa, with everything locked.

The only progress that the game will save is the progress I made on my first day of playing.


edit: Just checked this as well, my achievements are split about 50/50. Some of them I have retained since the first day I played the game, some I was able to unlock yesterday, but others that I already have unlocked have either yet to take effect, or have relocked themselves.

2nd edit: I am also having a problem with multiple apps running. If I want to snap out of Plague for a moment, and then close the second app, when I return to plague, the game is running, but will not respond to my controller. Have confirmed this 3 separate times now, including only a moment ago.

Just finished playing the save-game to its conclusion to see if that would help. It did let me retain the gene perks that I selected for that particular mission, but thats it, the rest
of the perks that I obtained on my last playthrough are now locked again, leaving me only the genes that I acquired on day one.

Is this game breaking? No. But its sucking the fun right out of it. Hope this can be fixed quickly, otherwise I wasted 15 bucks.

....

Thanks for sharing all this information
When you say "properly quit" - can you describe what you are doing please.

Also - re the game not recognising your controller - can you take a screenshot of your screen - the last time it works, and then when it doesn't (we think something might be blocking the reconnect pop up)
