Hello, I have been playing on Steam and having a great time. But many stages do not record my best time, instead just displaying a single "9" where my time should be. Any chance this could be fixed?

Will look into it if I get time. Did you happen to have multiple versions of the game at any time? ie- get the game on super rare games mixtape then steam? It may cause a desync in the stats, you can at least reset it by deleting the save in your appdata folder if that's the case

I only own the standalone Steam version. I can also grab some screenshots if that would help? Also, A2L3 is one of the levels which has consistently failed to record my time if that helps.

I think deleting your saves might fix it. I unfortunately programmed all of that very terribly, as I was still really new to doing save systems

The in-game buttons for deleting progress don't seem to change anything. I also did a fresh install and the data was still there, and the bug still present. Do I need to go into the game files and delete something to remove the save data?

I think so. Try going to Users/[your windows user]/Appdata/LocalLow/HoverSportStudios/ and deleting Reed The Robotanist Plus?

This is for windows


very noice :) 


Here's a full playthrough if people were curious about later stages
