I got Binding of Isaac for Linux through the Humble Bundle. It works fine, and sometimes saves my data (things found, challenges unlocked, etc.), but then sometimes erases them - seemingly at random. I've tried restoring what I thought was the save data (in ~/.macromedia/... I think), to no avail. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Maybe try installing it through Steam for Linux (assuming you are using a compatible distro)? While it's not officially listed, for some reason, Binding of Isaac utilises steam cloud and that may somehow salvage your saves. – Aubergine Mar 28 '13 at 8:08
I thought I read (in another question on this site, actually) that Steam doesn't handle saves for this game because it's Flash-based. Anyway, I don't have Steam installed, and don't want to install it (especailly not just for this). Thanks, though, good thought. – hunter2 Mar 28 '13 at 8:30
