re: Steam Cloud and local game saves: I'm confuzzled...

So I've upgraded to a better, stronger, faster Bionic Ma... erm, gaming rig, and I've been trying to figure out how to transfer my single-player game saves for ARK onto it from my old rig. But I'm confused. Seems like I'm missing something, but whenever I look in my Steam Library's ARK info page, it shows I have 10Gb of storage space available in SteamCloud, but zero gigs of anything saved. Yet I have the checkbox checked, which I think should have activated the process to save my single-player games into SteamCloud.

What am I missing?

I’m not sure but Jao probably knows this bit of info right off his noodle.

Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\ folder

Copy these folders:

Config
Saved
SavedArksLocal

Then paste them on a USB drive.

On the new computer copy them off the USB drive to the same directory on your new computer. Your single player game is now there on the new computer.

Ahhh, SUCCESS!! Had a hiccup on my first attempt -- turns out the SavedArksLocal folder is a bit too far of a drilldown. The trick was to copy over the Config and the Saved folders, found inside the ShooterGame folder. The SavedArksLocal folder is inside the Saved folder. Caused a game crash when I tried to copy the SavedArksLocal folder separately.
