Hello guys!
Half-Life has a cloud icon in the Steam library.
But when I launched this game from another PC, I found, that there weren't any saved games =(
Would you be so kind to add syncing of save games?
Now they are situated here - ~/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Half-Life/valve/SAVE/

@UndeadScottsman

Half-Life SHOULD have shared games synch. Try loading up Half-Life on the machine with the saved games you want, and then quit out. That should trigger Steam to upload to the cloud.

Am having a similar cloud sync issue on linux… could you post a screenshot of your Half-life properties window, on the Updates tab.

Tell me if it is fixed now, John pointed out that the config for cloud was valve/save, not valve/SAVE, so I fixed that.

After my client got the ufs update, launched hl, loaded & saved a game, upon exiting steam it flashed that syncing message, but nothing stored…
Hmm

The first sync will take a few minutes, and the amount stored will take a similar time to update. If you email me your Steam account names (DON'T post them here) I can look in our support tool for details on if it is working for you.

@MaxKorz

What's your email?

One question about Steam Cloud - will we ever see a better control of Steam Cloud?
like
-Manually sync
-Observing stored files
-Deleting stored files
-Downloading stored files (in zip archive)

@alfred-valve

@MaxKorz , john has provided enough details thanks, no need for you to give me the details.

@MaxKorz that would be a feature request for Steam so probably best posted here http://steamcommunity.com/groups/SteamClientBeta ;)

@alfred-valve still no change, even after a client restart. Is there anything in the console I can do to bump it?

cloud_sync_up 70 doesnt appear to trigger anything (nor down _down)

@MaxKorz

@johndrinkwater Thank you for the link. Posted it there

Hi guys, sorry for my late answer. I hadn't had opportunity to check this issue before.
Now, sync doesn't work. I launched the game from my PC, exited from HL and from Steam.
Then, I launched half-life from laptop. The game updated some files, but a new saved games didn't appear.

@johndrinkwater, you asked for screenshot. Here you are - http://yadi.sk/d/FQsXvy--2jep9

This was an issue in Steam, which we've fixed now. The fix will be available in a future release.

Turns out the bug fix didn't ship yet, it will soon!

@Tele42

I just saw this working in the wild.
EDIT: Requires beta branch of steam for linux.

@Alarmfifa

I've just checked saved games sync and it works now =)
