I just noticed the OS X version and installed it today. I'd been playing this exclusively in Windows for awhile.

Each time I run the game now, it tells me that it can't sync with Steam Cloud.

While I doubt I'll play this under Windows again, and I'm not really hurt if I lose my saves from the Windows side, having to click extra buttons, while a first world problem, is still a problem.

What can I do that is out of the ordinary to make the Cloud sync happen?

Could this be an artefact from the Summer sale in Steam? (none of my other steam cloud games are giving me this problem.)

and THANKS for the OS X version.

There is currently an issue with the PC -> Mac syncing through Steam cloud. I have pinged Valve about this, but obviously they are a little slower than normal to make fixes with all the summer sale madness going on. In the mean time, you can manually move your save files from the PC and turn cloud sync off. Here is a note on hoe to do it:

A note on the Steamcloud issue:

Cloud support is currently broken on the Mac when transferring saves from your PC. We hope to have this fixed very soon, but in the mean time, you can manually transfer your files from the PC to this directory on the Mac (and turn off cloud support)

PC: (XP)
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\MinMaxGames\SpacePiratesAndZombies\b_save

MAC:
$HOME/Library/Application Support/SpacePiratesAndZombies/b_save

I hope this helps. We are trying to get these bugs fixed as quickly as possible. Unfortunately most of these need to be handled externally so our hands or frustratingly tied in some cases.

Hmm... I wonder if that's why Plants Vs Zombies gave me problems a long time ago (I finally uninstalled it as I moved on from other games.)

If it is, they've been "working on it" for a LONG time.

Thanks!
