On mac game saves are saved in cache folder ...

5 posts in this topic

Game saves are saved in the osx /cache folder, which is cleared when I my maintenance cron jobs run...

Which means my game save is lost.

Game saves should be in ~/Library/Application Support/ or equivalent.

Do your saves go to the Steam Cloud as well? You can let steam grab all your saves and it puts it on the Cloud. It's how I got back some of my lost Skyrim Saves.

I can see if we can get them to save to a more permanent folder by default though

What version of the game are you running? This was a problem in earlier versions (it was actually a Unity issue, which was specifying the persistent data path under cache). This should be fixed in v.183.

Did you try a to uninstall/ reinstall the game? If this problem should be fixed in the current version a reinstall might fix it. It's possible the game will still use the old save path since that's where it's been told to save at the time of the install.

I think the game needs to support this. And it seems like TLD does support Steam Cloud but doesn't actually store anything there yet:

0 bytes stored, so my savegame isn't stored there, nor are my settings.

But this could also be a bug in Steam, as all the games I've played recently say they have 0 bytes stored (if they support Steam Cloud that is).
