Hey ho guys!

It seems I might have missed the point in how cloud saves works, because I was under the impression I could format my computer with steam cloud having all of my supported games saves stored.

I even backed up the physical save file on another hard drive, in case the cloud thing would not work properly. Except, Steam keeps telling me that it has problems syncing my saves, and even if I physically add the save file to the same location, it still comes up as no saved file found.

I must admit, I am bit sad about that fact, I have finished the games several times, and had only to beat DmD mode to get 100%

A shame, tbh. I hope the DLC doesn't require me to finish the game X amount of times.

@amir90: I thought you could download files from the cloud after a format/reinstall? It's a dumb question, but are you sure you had your settings enabled correctly beforehand? Do the steam cloud files actually apply to all your data with steamcloud support, or just achievements? Also, did you switch from, say, XP to Windows 7?

I think I heard a while back that you need to have only cleared the game once on any difficulty to unlock Bloody Palace. It was originally meant to be with the game on release, but they held back on it for whatever reason.

Hey man, thanks for the reply.
Wouldn't steam download it automatically after being logging into my account? Which settings can I change, the only one I found was "enable cloud save", so if there are any other settings regarding that, then I am ignorant to that fact. I switched from windows 8 to w7.

I don't want to finish the game again, just to try out bloody palace, I have already finished the game 5 times :P

I had the syncing issue with borderlands i would say read the message as my issue was i shut my computer down before it could sync the saves when i left the game. So when i went back it noticed they didn't match and ask if i wanted to use my cloud save or local (yes or no) i choice to cloud save game got in the game relased i lost like 4 hours and quit ran it again but it had already synced again at that points and overwritten my local save permenently losing me 4 hours. You could of used your local saves which has overwriten ur cloud save game.

If you had could saving enabled that is.

Something you only even do once.

@amir90: I guess you could try the steam/capcom support forums? I'm really not the best person to ask.

@dudeglove: Nah that's okei, I got 40 hours of the game, and only one achievement that I wasn't able to get in time (DmD achievement). I got more than my money's worth.
Blood palace and the new DLC with Virgil is a good enough reason to play the game again during the summers or something.

That is what happened with Borderlands 2 ( I lost everything) and Alan Wake (lost 2 hours of progression).
