So every time I finish my play session, I immediately back up my characters to my private cloud, I'm also aware of characters being deleted before and after this patch. with that said, I've done some light debugging of the current issue and it seems that there are two things that are happening:
- Character location no longer is in the User's Directory/My Games/wolcen, it has shifted to the steamapps/common/Wolcen/wolcen folder (Thus I noticed that the timestamps on my original save folder were no longer changing which made me think that there was another directory being used.
- Placing my original characters and other related data in the steamapps's wolcen save folder doesn't actually show the characters in the game at all. The timestamps didn't change either.
Making any new character in the game temporarily works (for the duration of the game). However, the save file actually doesn't exist on disk, and thus reloading the game also just shows an empty character screen.
