Steam Cloud - Which games have it?

Done a search of the forum, but can't find a list of games which have 'Steam Cloud'. Is it still just L4D, or have more been added/patched yet?

Team Fortress 2 uses Steam Cloud to store your inventory settings. I think TF2 also uses Steam Cloud to store server histories and favorites. TF2's achievement progress is also saved. If you log on using another computer, your progress on a certain achievement isn't reset to zero.

Even though it isn't advertised, I think that Spectraball uses it too. I say this because your progress is saved and retrieved no matter which computer is being used. Even your points that are used to unlock things in the game can be spent on another computer.

As far as I know, L4D, TF2 and Spectraball are the only three games that use Steam Cloud so far. I'm really looking forward to having HL2 progress saved on Steam cloud so that I can go back to any level no matter which computer that I am on! Oh, and the saving of Portal achievement progress would be appreciated.

Tf2 don't uses Steam cluod. Steam Cloud means that you can save your configs and save files. Tf2 stats are in your steam account same think in dod:s etc.

TF2 certainly does use it. It was in one of the update notes. You are correct in saying it doesn't save all your stats though.

To my knowledge, L4D and TF2 (slightly) uses it.

i thought steam cloud was going to support the HL games, whereby it would save your progress in the game e.g. individual chapters.

its so anoying when you re-format or something similar and you cannot copy the saved game files.

It's the other way round. A game has to be changed to use SteamCloud.

HL1 was used as an example when explaining the system, so I can understand why you'd think that.

It'll probably come eventually when some coder's bored mid-compile.

Trials 2 doesn't technically go through Steam Cloud, but when you go online it'll retrieve your save.
