I play Creeper World 3 on both my laptop and desktop, one with ubuntu and the other on windows 10. As far as I know, it seem like CW3 do not use the steam cloud to keep the save file.
How can I keep the same save between my machines ?

As CW3 make the save cross compatible with windows / ubuntu and mac, you can share a same save file.
First, you'll need a cloud account, I choose Dropbox, but it'll probably work with every others.
Careful, this is only to share a same save, not merge two save in one : you'll have to choose which one you want to keep and be sync
Shut-down the game before any change
In your cloud local folder, make and locate a game save folder (for me, it'll be
GameSettings.xml file (created after first launch of CW3)
Open it with a text editor (sublimetext / notepad++ / gedit), and locate the following lines :
Set the first to
True and put the path of the sync save folder you've make before between line 2 & 3.
For my Ubuntu I'll have :
Now, we need to get back our save, go find the
creeperworld3 folder :
Copy and past the full folder
creeperworld3 (not only the content) in your sync game folder, for me on ubuntu
You should now be able to see your sync save when you launch your game.
if not, you probably selected
creeperworld3 as the save folder, and end up with
/creeperwold3 from your
CustomDataPath in the
