How to Fix Baldur’s Gate 3 Can’t Save Game Is Currently Syncing
If you encounter the issue where you can’t save in Baldur’s Gate 3 because the game is currently syncing, there are several things you can try to do. First off, you have to make sure that you’ve deleted every single file from the Early Access version. I mean everything: save files, mods, the works. Next up, be sure to disable cloud saves on Steam. Right-click the game in your library, then click Properties. Scroll down to Steam Cloud and disable it. Take a gander at the image below to see where the option is, in case you can’t find where it is. If you don’t do this, Steam might return all the save files you’ve deleted manually right back and cause a mess.
Another thing that might help the situation where you can’t save your game in Baldur’s Gate 3 because it’s currently syncing is to make sure that you’ve signed in using the launcher that pops up when you start the game on Stream. Yes, you have to make a Larian account which is a pain in the butt, but it is what it is. Lastly, as user The Red Queen said on the official forum, you’ll probably be okay if you just cancel the process. Your game should still be saved locally, even if it’s not synced with the cloud. Check whether that’s the case by using File Explorer and looking for the BG3 save game.
