I wonder if someone could help me. Ive installed Knight on my external drive (F: and recently needed to use a system image restore. I backed up the C:documents/WB saved game data and continued restore.
All went well, I copied over the data to C: after restoring the drive, replayed Batman but the game now starts from the beginning again rather than my last save.
It should not start from the beginning if you restored the saves properly. But if it is doing, what i can suggest you is Download a Save File from here http://www.downloads.oceanup.com/video-games/download-batman-arkham-knight-pc-100-save-game/ and paste it in the save directory. Hopefully it will not start from beginning.
