Interesting thing with file mismatches

Post by Que » Thu Oct 28, 2021 10:29 am

Just a small post here regarding file mismatches.
If you have a mod.u that you install on your server and you send as a serverpackage... Clients download mod.u
Now if you make a new revision of mod.u but don't rename it then only clients who have not closed their UT App will get a mismatch.

Therefore if they close and re-open UT will they then download the new revision of mod.u without any mismatch error.

Problem occurs however if several servers run different revisions of mod.u then players could get the mismatch error if they connect to these servers without restarting their UT.

It is very old problem, and still not fixed...
Probably, solution is complicated too much...
