Can you force library updates?

Postby Denk » Mon Aug 03, 2020 10:00 am

The Danish library is currently being updated. P/o Prune is already working on a Danish game based on an earlier version of the Danish library. Now that the Danish library has been improved, it would be nice if the library in the game could be updated automatically. But even if we add the new library as the selected library, and we say yes when ADRIFT asks if new items should be updated, the tasks are not updated.

I understand that this only happens if the game author has made changes in the library, but that appears not to be the case here.

It is very difficult to copy the improved tasks manually because many tasks are dependent on each other.

So is there a way to force the (Danish) Standard Library to update in a game?

I was thinking that I could first export the game as a module and then make changes to the amf-file so ADRIFT knows which tasks should be updated, but I don't know which parts to change, if this method is possible. I hope someone can help. :anyone:

:D I am happy to say that I found a way to force library updates:
In the Settings Menu on the Libraries pane choose "Prompt per ITEM"(!)

Then you will get the following options if you have already played with a library item in your game:

As you can see, you can force to overwrite a library item by clicking yes.
