I think I discovered a bug in BD4, perhaps you like to check this...
Yesterday evening I had the following scenario:
- I played a while at level 47 ( a long while !) in offline mode
- finally, I managed it
- the dialog "BD4 showing player statistics" comes up and tells me that I
solved the level (hurray)
- I enter "Quit to menu"
- I enter "Quit game"
- I say I really want to quit (my girlfriend wanted to talk to me, you can
understand it after three hours :=)
OK, lets play another game
- start BD4 in offline mode again
- load my player from the ticket

ticket if just leave the program.
If I solve one level and only enter the following level once, everything is
This behavior can be reproduced, I created a testuser "Lichtest" and have
done the same thing with level zero !
