Can't delete savegame because steam cloud restore it

Game Version:

  • Build 34483
  • Platform Steam

Issue:

I can’t delete any savegame because steam cloud restore it.

Reproduction Steps:

  1. Start AoE DE from steam with cloud sync enabled.
  2. Play campaign or random map.
  3. Save the game multiple times with different names.
  4. Close the game and go back to steam, wait cloud sync sync.
  5. Start AoE DE from steam.
  6. Open save game menu and delete saved games.
  7. Close the game and go back to steam, wait cloud sync sync.
  8. Start AoE DE from steam.
  9. Open save game menu, all deleted save game files is back.

Doesn’t matter if you delete from inside game or from game folders.
C:\Users\[…]\Games\Age of Empires DE\Users\[…]\Saved Games\*.aoegame
C:\[…]\Steam\userdata\[…]\1017900\remote\*.aoegame
It always back.

Did you disable save to cloud in Steam itself? You have to do that first before the deletes stick. Then delete from both places, but after the last server update, I am suspecting there is another place that has to do with XBOX and crossover, because mine keep coming back unless I delete them inside the game. The 2 places you have to delete from for sure are:

User>Current User>Saved Games as well as in
Steam>UserData>user number>1017900>remote.
