Campaign progress no longer saving (since Nov update)

Game Version:

Since the November update, my progress through campaigns seems to be no longer saving. Specifically, I’m playing Le Loi at the moment. I’d started, but not competed, scenario 3 before the update. Loading that saved game lets me finish the scenario and progress to scenario 4 - but upon exiting the program it seems to lose my progress. When I opened the game again the next day, scenario 4 was unavailable. I had to load my last save from scenario 3, and finish it again before it unlocked scenario 4 again.
Now, the same thing has happened again. Having completed scenario 4, and unlocked scenario 5, my progress goes back to not having completed scenario 3 every time I close and re-open the program. It seems to revert my progress the point I was at when the update was rolled out. I can get to where I need to be by loading saves from near the end of scenarios 3 and 4, but it’s a real waste of time! I’d much prefer my progress through a campaign to be saved the way it always was.

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem:

  1. Play a new campaign with scenarios that are still locked.
  2. Complete a scenario
  3. Quit the game
  4. Reload the game
  5. See if your progress has been saved. (I suspect that this affects games that were saved in the previous build and re-loaded in the current build)

Further to the above:

I’ve gone back and completed Scenario 3 of Le Loi from the start (started the level afresh in the campaigns page, rather than load from a previous-build save) and it still doesn’t save my progress through the campaign after closing AOE:DE.

I’ve also started the Bari campaign, completed Scenario 1, unlocked scenario 2, then quit AOE:DE and re-opened the program. The Bari campaign page now only shows scenario 1, unplayed.

So this problem has nothing to do with having loaded a saved game from the previous build, as I pondered above. It just simply isn’t keeping a record of my progress through campaigns when I quit the game.

I really need this fixed!

You say about Age of Empires 2. This is forum about Age of Empires 1

Ha. So it is. Classic.
I was linked to this page from somewhere saying it was the AOE2 bug page.
Thanks for pointing this out.
