Unhappy I accidently cheated on Survival, Kleer Base. hulp

As the title says, I somehow "cheated" in Survival, at Kleer Base (HD: TSE); my best time is now 15 minutes(!). (*Question soon to follow*)

I didn't even do the "getting onto the pilars" trick (nor would I have been willing to).
Reason it happened is that I left it running in the background, on the main menu, while I was searching patches, and played an SNES Emulator, using the Xbox 360 Controller.
The game doesn't seem to care if it isn't the focused window, it still accepted inputs from the controller, and I somehow opened Kleer Base.
Then, the game "started", but as long as the window was in the background, Sam wasn't loaded in the level, but the timer and Kleers did function as usual.
So when I came back into the game, Sam got killed by the hundreds of Kleers, and my High Score got updated to 15 minutes.


**Now, my question is: Can I reset my Best Time for this specific map? I'm not comfortable using a fake score like this.

I searched into the Save Folders (...\41010\local\SeriousSamHD_TSE\SavedGames & ...\41000\local), but I can't find anything about Survival Scores.
I assumed it would be something I could fix with Notepad++.

If it is something I could fix with Notepad, or there's some unusual fix I could do, then be free to point me to the right direction.
I would like to know where these scores are saved, and I would be happy if I could reset it back at zero (luckily, it was the only map I haven't tried yet).

I hope it doesn't count as hacking the game, as per forum rules, though.

I should add that I don't want to start the game fresh, because, despite being one of my favorite games, it would be kind of obnoxious to have to redo Egypt in Serious Difficulty.

Stats are saved on Steam Server, and things like that are hardly close to the leaderboards - you cannot change values like that by editing any files on the computer.

I played it Offline, but I still could see my Best Scores.
Furthermore, I did a new Best Score, and it got saved, even when I reloaded the game, still in Offline.
So I still have the doubt that it has to be saved somewhere on the hard drive.


Just to make sure we have the same idea, I can understand that I can't change the online leaderboards, but my question is if I can change the local best scores.

If there's really really no way to reset it, I guess the best way to keep track of actual skill would be with Demo Playbacks.

Nah, you can actually reset that, I think it's saved in your game profile, so you'd have to delete that.. I don't actually remember though :/

Should be somewhere in Steam's userdata folder anyway.

The Serious Sam 3 user data is saved in *Steam install dir*\userdata\*your Steam ID*\41070. I assume the important data is saved in remote\playerprofile.dat and remote\playerprofile_unrestricted.dat. However, as remotecache.vdf shows it's secured with SHA, so don't bother trying to edit it.

If you delete the dat file, make sure to turn off Steam Cloud, as it will just be put back otherwise. There are some hacks to remove a file from Steam Cloud, but I don't want to jump through those hoops. There are tutorials for that online.

When Steam Cloud files are different from these on PC it usually asks if you want to upload new ones, or load the old ones, so I guess there shouldn't be a problem after you delete them from the userdata directory.
