Steam update => lost settings and campaign data (Mac)

Post by ehabkost » Tue Oct 11, 2011 6:37 pm

Steam downloaded an update for Frozen Synapse today and I suddenly lost all my settings and my singleplayer campaign data.

After investigating a little, I found out that Frozen Synapse is now saving the data on the Library/Application Support/FrozenSynapseDemo, and all my old data is on Library/Application Support/FrozenSynapse.

Is this a known issue? Are there plans for an additional Steam update to fix this? Is it possible that there's something else wrong on my system that caused this?

I'm running Mac OS X 10.7.1.

The issue is known and is being looked into according to IRC. Seems to only be on the Mac.

For anyone who wants to play their campaign right now you can copy your settings into the FrozenSynapseDemo directory, or even better set up a symlink. Then you won't have to worry about copying it back when they fix the bug.

The directory is in ~/Library/Application Support/

If you don't know what this is, or how to do it, please just wait for the update later to fix it. If you don't know what you are doing you could lose your saved campaign.

Code: Select all

mv FrozenSynapseDemo FrozenSynapseDemo.bak
ln -s FrozenSynapse FrozenSynapseDemo
