Conan Exiles on GeForce Now (GFN) does not upload GAME.DB to cloud, resulting in "CLOUD OUT OF DATE" error

,

New player and new to the forums! Just bought CE and also a 6-month GFN subscription to play it. My understanding is that CE typically stores saves in the following local folder on PC in a file called “game.db”: \ConanSandbox\Saved\

If I create a single-player/co-op game in Conan Exiles in GFN, this save persists across GFN sessions. However, game.db file does not get synchronized to Steam’s Cloud Saves. As a result, whenever subsequently launching on PC, I get the error “CLOUD OUT OF DATE.”

An example of a detailed error message (I’m new so can’t upload an image yet):

You played Conan Exiles on “GEFORCE-NOW” (Today at 6:19 AM), and that save is not yet in the cloud. (upload not started)
You can still play this game, but that may create a conflict when your previous game progress successfully uploads.

This is painful for two reasons. First, it forces me to choose between playing on a local machine and having functional cloud saves, or, using GFN exclusively. This is an issue for example if/when my GFN subscription ends: any progress will disappear with it.

Second, GFN doesn’t allow users to copy/move the "game.db’ file manually, which (as I understand it) is required in order to transform a single-player/co-op save file into a dedicated server.

Unless GFN either starts syncing to Cloud Saves or provides some ability to download the “game.db” file, I am not able to use my game as expected. I’ve opened a GFN support post with ID #499031 (I can’t post a link yet because I’m a new member here).

Any advice from other players or help from Funcom on this one?

Same thing happened to me a few days ago on PC. What caused my problem was I played on one computer and later in the day played the same game on another computer. Somehow that screwed everything. I could still play but the same issue still pops up.

Interesting, so not using GFN, but using two different machines?

Are we supposed to be able to continue single player/co-op games across multiple machines? Searching around a bit, it seems maybe not. I can’t include links (new member) but it seems that maybe Cloud Save is not supported by this game at all.

Not a huge issue for me today, I guess, but would be great to see in future! Maybe players should be warned?

This also doesn’t solve the problem that GeForce Now is a black box that doesn’t allow downloading of my own user data. Seems anti-competitive to me. Maybe I won’t keep the subscription after all…
