[bug] [Mac <-> Win] Steam Syncs to Wrong Folder (NOT FIXED)

Question

On the Mac side, it appears to have its own sync data in addition to the Windows sync data.  It puts the Windows saves in "~/Application Support/Pillars of Eternity II" folder and the Mac saves in the "~/Application Support/Pillars of Eternity II/Saved Games".  However, the game it self (both Mac & Win) load the saved games from the Saved Games folder.  This causes the two platforms to be perpetually out of sync, unless you manually copy over your current saves from "~/Application Support/Pillars of Eternity II" into the Saved Games folder.

Bump.  It appears the issue wasn't fixed after all.  Not sure if the devs are aware of it or not.  See above post for details.

I would just like to confirm this bug.  I can create saves on my home Windows gaming machine, but they will not sync over Steam to my OSX version on my MacBook Pro.

Same with Linux. I think it's because of different naming of folders. Win doesn't care for upper/lower case while Mac/Linux do. The savegames are there, but in a different folder that's named just a tad differently. You can copy and paste them into the one the game's actually using in your platform.

 

Still needs a fix.

Not just that, but Mac and PC load/sync their files from different folders.  Mac saves/syncs from the subfolder "Saved Games" within the "Pillars of Eternity II" saved games directory, while Windows loads/syncs from the "Pillars of Eternity II" folder directly.

 

Meaning if you switch between Mac & PC, it requires a lot of manual copy/pasting to keep them in sync, and enabling CloudSync just mucks it up super bad.  Or in my case, I have a daemon the runs rsync on the save folder stored in my DropBox to mirror the Mac and PC saves when I shut down my computer ... but this required way too much work on my part for an issue easily resolved by patching the Mac version to sync/use the saves in ~/Application Support/Pillars of Eternity II/ as opposed to ~/Application Support/Pillars of Eternity II/Saved Games/.
