In lieu of proper Steam Cloud support, I'm trying to set up Frozen Synapse to store its save files in Dropbox. What files or folders do I need to sync between my two (Mac) computers to achieve this?

(For bonus points: What about on Windows? Are the save files compatible between platforms?)

Most well written modern Mac games will put the saves in ~/Library/Application Support/. – CyberSkull Oct 31 '11 at 22:12

On the Steam version on Windows the files are in:

%SteamPath%\steamapps\common\frozen synapse\psychoff

In OS X, the files are in:

/Users/[Username]/Library/Application Support/FrozenSynapse/Psychoff

And are all the files beginning with spSave (I have three of this form).

I don't know if the files are cross-platform compatible.

I don't have FS installed, but the equivalent folder for the mac is /Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/ – authenticgeek Aug 28 '11 at 18:28
@Nick: On a Mac, that folder just contains the Frozen Synapse game executable (Frozen The save data has its own folder in Application Support. – Brant Aug 28 '11 at 23:15
The correct Mac OS X path is ~/Library/Application Support/FrozenSynapse/Psychoff – CyberSkull Oct 31 '11 at 22:11

On Linux, the saves are in ~/.local/share/FrozenSynapse/psychoff.
