    Hi there,

    I bought Torchlight the day it was released and played it a while. Then, it lay untouched on my harddisc until Steam came out for Mac. I added my Torchlight key to Steam and downloaded the game on Mac as well as on my PC. On my PC, there are my old savegames present, on my Mac everything goes from scratch.

    As far as I know, Steam stores savegames in this "Steam Cloud". But it doesn't seem I could access the savegames of my PC from Mac or visa versa.

    Have I to configure something? Could it be that the presence of local savegames on my PC deactivated the cloud saving? Any ideas? It'd be cool to share my savegames between PC and Mac through the cloud.

    This is not possible. You can share pc saves with with saves (though pc to pc or mac to mac does work). This isn't a steam cloud problem, it's a problem with Torchlight, since their save system is different in mac and pc.

    If you just want to copy your save games from PC to Mac, you can do that (see my post in this thread).

    If you want to genuinely share your savegames between the two computers I think you're out of luck.
