Steam Cloud Saves are set to backup wrong folder.

SOLVED

Crash Bandicoot™ Forum | Activision®

Steam Cloud Saves are set to backup wrong folder.

Steam Cloud is set, to backup wrong folder resulting in no data stored.

 

Steam is set to backup with these settings:

0/path: CREM
0/pattern: SAVE_*.sav
0/root: WinAppDataRoaming

Actual save data is located in:

%APPDATA%\Game\

This results in steam cloud always being empty.

Fixing this should be easy, please do it quickly.

Thank You!

Looking at steamdb, it was fixed less than 24h ago. I didn't even noticed it myself. I'll check and report back, if it's properly fixed.

 

Edit:

Ok, just checked, yes, It's now working properly ... finally Smiley Happy

FYI, saves are now located in:

Hey there, 

I just wanted to say thanks for reaching out about this. I'll try to look into it, test it here, and report it up, but I'm not sure if that is an issue on Steam's end or ATVI. Either way, I'll check into it and thanks for the details.

This is CRITICAL, I have the same issue, like many others (probably everyone on PC)! Just read Steam's discussions for example...

It needs to be fixed ASAP, some people already lost their saves because of changing pc or formatting and they didn't know that Steam cloud wasn't working as expected. Please post a patch/fix, thanks.

The game was patched today, you haven't bothered to even release changelog, to list what is fixed or added/removed and the Steam Cloud Saves are still broken.

It's literally 5 minute fix for any of the devs, just change 2 variables your game gives to steam.

 

You just have to just change save path from CREM to Game, and save pattern from SAVE_*.sav to ALCHEMYXSAVE_*.sav, that's literally all you need to do, and I'm not even your develeper.

 

Sigh...

It has been fixed already, you just need to resave once in every slot, then it sees it's been updated and it grabs the files.

You all beat me to it, but yes there should have been a fix for that earlier today or last night. If you are still seeing issues related to that make sure Steam itself is updated and if it is still occuring after that let me know. Thanks.
