[Solved] Bug: Deleted Save Game Files Reappear vers 24.4

Steps to replicate:

  1. Go to Save directory C:\Users*USER*\AppData\Roaming\Apoapsis Studios\Airport CEO\Saves

  3. Start Airport CEO game
    Results: watch the directory. Each of the deleted save game files is restored.

I started playing ACEO beginning with ver 24.3-2. The bug was there too

Isn’t it the steam cloud that does this?

I think your files are saved on the cloud each time you close the game and when you start steam compares them to the files on your pc. If they don’t match steam downloads them to your pc. At least that’s how I think it works


You are correct. I turned off Steam synchronization. Deleted the files. Restarted the game. The deleted files stayed deleted.

Great, glad I could help!
