Quick question about custom content with duplicate files

2 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

I have several dl's that have files labeled "merged.dat" all different in size but all named the same. Does  the file confuse the game causing conflicts when there are so many different copies of the same name in different folders? I've been tracking down a random crash issue moving files in and out of plugins and was curious about these duplicate files all of different sizes and all from different content designers. If they were from the same designer I would just use the newest one but they come from different places.

The file name's only purpose is for sorting.  It's the content of the file that matters.  As long as you don't have any actual duplicate files, I don't think having several with the same name should be a problem, especially because they are in different folders.
