Game not Recognizing my Save Files

I opened the game today to discover that apparently, according to the game, I don’t have any save files so I can’t load or continue. I tried closing and reopening the game, nothing.
I looked in the local game files (steamapps\common\KingdomComeDeliverance\user_kingdomcome\saves\playline0) and it shows 7 files named “autosave”.
I played for a good 3 hours yesterday and arrived at Talmberg. Wtf is going on?? Why is the game insisting I don’t have any saves when I clearly do? How do I fix this so I don’t have to restart? Please help!

You have 6 playlines, make sure you are trying to load the correct one. An empty playline has no saves in it to load.

The option to load doesn’t even show any saves. basically, the game is showing as though I had never started playing it before, and as if I were opening it for the first time.
