Update Issues

Recommended Posts

Have you ever had a situation where there are no bugs in your mod, but users still complain?

Offhand, I can say that there really is a bug in the update process.

Some people complain that even the name of the mod is buggy: it contains "workshop" plus numbers. This could indicate missing or damaged files.

We have already discussed and even implemented a feature called "version_compatible". I use this feature. It may be source of issues too.

Frequently.

This is a file permissions issue on the user's side. Your Show Me (Origin) mod was originally a v1 mod since it hadn't been updated in a long time, so it was stored in the mods directory. Now that you have updated it, it is a v2 mod and is stored at Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\322330. I have seen that installation location is one of the possible reasons for the issue.

I think devs can patch the game so it will use "workshop\content" as cache folder too. I mean the game can count all versions in all folders and pick the best one.
