Some save state loss after some months
I reinstalled this game after i finished it some months ago.
I had 3 save states, and now only 1 with 3/4 of the game completed.
This is real ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t.
Furthermore, if i start a new game i can play the character u unlock after beating the game, but the boss batle mode are not shown.
I want back all my save states, what can i do?

I had a nightmare "The Claw" save state around level 32-33 at the end of the Silent Sands last time I played (quite a while ago). I just launched the game to discover im now level 22 back in the middle of Guilty Fire. I have credit for beating the end-boss of Guilty Fire in achievements too.

I would love to know this as well... wish someone could explain how you can get rolled back from the early 40's and past the sand boss and all of a sudden it be gone and your only save state back in the early 20's

probably something to do with steam cloud not syncing correctly then overwriting local saves

Yeah. Unfortunately, this is a Steam Cloud issue. x.x

Should we back up our save games or is there a good way to avoid savegame loss?
Last time I deactivated steam cloud I lost all my saves too.

It's a syncing issue.

Typically, when you exit a game Steam goes into a couple second sync mode. The Taskbar icon will change and when you hover over it'll say synchronizing. If you try to start the game pre-sync end you'll get a steam cloud sync error message just hit cancel and let it sync. Additionally, if you do play and your saves show Corrupt just exit the game and let the game sync and you should be fine.

Just make sure when you exit the game and restart it again that you wait for it to sync first.

This happened to me because of the cloud.
I had a save with more progress on the desktop.
Loaded it up on the laptop, -no steam cloud prompt-, I see some saves from an earlier period in the game, and exit. go back and start the desktop version, -no steam cloud prompt-, but it copied over my laptop's old saves anyway :rage:
Disappointed...the steam cloud is amazing for playing a 1-player game across two platforms, but not this one.

I have had my steam cloud off since I played Torchlight I with it, I have never used the could at all with origins (or any game besides TLI because of the issues I had with it...). This also has not happened with any other steam games I own.

Happened to me as well. I had a save in last areas of the game and now I'm back right before an 'unbeatable boss' in guilty fire 2. Which is funny because I have an achievement for beating him.

I lost all my saves. :(

Personally I always google save folders for games and make a back up of the local save files and store it a copy on a usb or harddrive because steam cloud can easily mess up your saves.
