Portal Not Glitched!

everyone keeps bring up this portal glitch that deletes all of your medals and advanced map completions. THERE IS NO GLITCH.

Here is how to not get everything deleted:
1. after you beat a level load a random level.
2. SAVE
3. once you turn your game back on again load that save.
4. all your medals and advanced map info will be right there just like before.

the problem here is that you were all assuming that the game would reload your saves on it's own. Didn't you notice something was fishy when it would always have a picture of the testchamber 00 on the menu screen?

I think even like this is a glitch.
When you solve a test chamber in story mode, quit and restart the game you don't have to load up the last save to see your progress in the story, do you?
Save is for saving an exact point in the game. Everything else should be saved automatically.

maybe, but just wanted to make sure everyone knows that it is fixable.

Sorry, and thank you for that. Shame nobody found out this sooner.
I could use this info myself as well in the past. Anyway, it is a nice find, but I still stick to my opinion as it is a glitch and shouldn't be happening at the first place. Or if it's happening they should release a patch looong time ago. (something that loads up your last save by default, fx)
The disappearing accomplishments and the freezings can be called what they are: glitches.
