Patch 0.5.42405 Cloud saves not working properly
Thank you for adding cloud saves although I can not load my existing character. Upon loading my private world I am only given the option to create a new character. Please allow me to use my already existing character. Thanks

I managed to resolve this by removing cloud saves and then re-enabling them.
I have been switching between two devices (desktop and laptop) via steam cloud lately. But everytime i open the game on another device it doesn't start at where i left it on the previous device. I am sure i am letting steam upload the save after closing the game and download the save before opening the game. It has happend two times now. I have to manually extract the save from the programs files, mail it to myself and insert it in the programs files on the other device for it to work correctly.
For example lets say i play from 14:00 to 16:00 and it saves 2 times. Once at 15:00 and once at 16:00. When opening the game on the other device it starts the save that has been made at 15:00 and not at 16:00. Thus not starting me at where i left off.
The newest patch has been downloaded and i have not installed any mods. Im also playing on a private Lan server and have clicked the option "move to Steam Cloud".

Had to restore Windows from backup. Lost my saves folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\Stunlock Studios\VRising\
Steam has restored the folder from the cloud, but the game does not load the latest save.
Reason is that Steam synchronizes all 25 save backup folders in random order, and sets their modify time for current time. Does not keep modification time of the original backedup folder. So the "latest" save folder by number is AutoSave_126 (just an example), but latest by date is AutoSave_120 (as example), jsut because Steam synced it last. And the game proceeds to load AutoSave_120 instead of AutoSave_126
