Every time I open the game, I have to restart at the first map. My characters and items save but not the gaming levels themselves. I can play level 2 if I do it right after beating level 1, but if I close the game only the level 1 map is available. Is there a way to fix this?

Are you playing offline? It could be an issue with the Steam Cloud syncing, you might need to disable the cloud. – William Lawn Stewart Oct 23 '11 at 2:55

Found a fix here, on the official forums.

Right click on the game in steam -> Properties -> Verify game cache When I did that it said "2 files failed to validate and will be reaquired"

Then I restarted my game and got all my progress back. I never had the problem with deleted characters or lost items though. I was just unable to access levels I had unlocked. It might be a steam updating problem.

I get "2 files failed to validate and will be reacquired" every time I open/close the game. It has fixed some multiplayer-related problems (not being able to join each others' games), though. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Oct 24 '11 at 22:11
