Mac saves moved manually to windows and it doesn't work? Can someone confirm / help ? V2 of PoE.

Question

Hi all,


So recently I just built a pc and I was moving some of my games save files.


I tried moving the save files from Mac to my windows side of things. Below are steps that I took.


  1. Confirmed its the latest save files.
  2. Cloud enable / sync perfectly.
  3. Manually moving from mac to windows via thumbdrive.

The load option is always disable. Is there any way around this? Many thanks!


Is this something that is broken? I recall people saying prior to V2 which i assume just comes out, it was working fine you to move it manually.

Hello Clause,

 

Moving files between separate systems should work with no problems. We do it all the time here at the office. The problem you are experiencing now is that you have Steam Cloud enables. Cross-Platform save are not working properly and you could be download corrupted saves. Please disable Steam Cloud/sync and delete all the save files on your PC, then transfer the files from your thumb drive or even through via or dropbox. 

 

Here are the save files locations:

Windows Location: %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\Pillars of Eternity

Mac Location: ~/Library/Application Support/Pillars of Eternity/Saved Games

 

Another possibility (this only applies if you have the White March) is that you don't have the White March installed on your PC but you do on your Mac. If you do not have the White March installed on your PC, then it will not read the save files. Make sure you have the checkbox marked in the DLC section.

 

Hope those options work out for you. Keep me posted!

Thank you for your support!

Are you fellas working on making it resolve? The cross platform save that is. Thanks for the assistance. 

 

Yeap okay this is solve. Moving manually actually work. 

 

1. Disable cloud sync. (make sure both machine have it disable). Change it in 1 should update the other. But just make sure. 

2. copy the save files and there's a slight different structure to the save game. 

3. In windows -> %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\Pillars of Eternity -> put the save files directly without a "Saved Games" Folder. 

4. In mac -> There's a folder Saved Games and put the files inside. 

 

Thanks Once again.
