Yesterday my friend brought his hard drive over and purchased castle crashers on my 360 using it. I had my profile on my memory card and his was on his hard drive. We played for awhile and then today when he went home his save was no longer. I checked my save and it was still there.

He brought his hard drive and 360 back over to do some experimenting and to make a REALLY long story short, we discovered that if he started Castle Crashers from the dashboard his save wouldn't show up, but once in the game, if he signed out of his profile and signed back in, his character would re-appear. When I moved my memory card over to his Xbox I noticed that my save wasn't showing up either and the same trick of just signing out (while still in Castle Crashers) and signing back in made my character show back up.

Let me know if this is useful for anyone else and hopefully Behemoth will get some kind of fix for this out soon....

I posted the same thing over at the gamefaqs board for the game and the results are looking positive

I have to host an online co-op match before I can play on my save.

I posted something similar on another thread:

I found one solution that worked for me and might work for you. This same thing happened to me last night when I was level 35. I was pissed. So I went online to try and host a match had a lobby ready for my friends, but no one wanted in so I decided to try and get everything back to level 35. To my amazement when I went back to my local game my stats and items + orbs were all back. It happened to my again when I signed on today when I was level 47 and it worked as well. So if you are having this issue try this out.

sign in with your xbox live account check to see if you have you stats still if not follow this:

-create an xbox live castle crashers game

-sign in with your XL GamerTag

-create a match: i used these settings
-private slots 0
-maxplayers 4
-hidden characters (this maybe a *must* I haven't tested it though)

-then click create match

-toggle ready then back all the way out to the main menu then try your local game again

let me know if this works for anyone else
