Author Topic: Support_FixAddOnSorting [v4]  (Read 534 times)

Old topic too old.

This add-on fixes client and server add-on execution order and the custom game GUI add-on list order. Also fixes the order of the resolution list.
This is pretty much only a problem with Linux, Wine, and some versions of Mac, because they use a different filing system. This add-on only fixes the symptoms of the problem. Only Badspot can fix the source of it. Probably doesn't work with dedicated servers.
Someone else made this add-on a long time ago, but it didn't work well and only fixed the custom game GUI add-on list order.

Requires you to start Blockland and then restart it to start working.
You only have to do it once.

was badspot really too lazy to make the game alphabetically sort files in one single folder to accommodate to all other operating systems

It only started being a problem either when Blockland got an update or Mac did. It has more to do with the findFirstFile and findNextFile functions not returning the files in alphabetical order for some reason. I don't think the functions can be fixed without modifying the source code though.

to be fair blockland itself is a mess on mac. honestly wouldn't blame badspot if he hadnt supported it at all.

Is it supposed to look like this or with the smaller resolution on top?

it would require a full recompile of the engine which isn't even supported anymore

Smallest is meant to be on top.

Alright, done. Also on Blockland Glass now.
