Campbell wrote:You'll be prompted whether you want to update your game with the latest info from the library if the library items are newer than your game ones. Generally it's a good idea to say Yes to this, unless you've customised the library tasks in your own game.
Campbell wrote:Yes. However, it would only import them from the library if they had changed since you modified yours. Whenever you start up ADRIFT, it does a compare of the library against your game and basically tries to pick the most recent version of any library task. The reason for this is so that any modifications or improvements to the library can be imported into your existing game.
If you don't want it doing this, or you have heavily customised the library, the easiest thing is to not copy the newer one over your existing one. Tools such as WinMerge are very good at comparing files so you can see if anything has changed. ADRIFT also gives the option to compare each item individually when you load up your game.

I just checked and those two tasks are unchanged since I installed v.5.23, so I think it is safe to do a full install, rather than copy & paste.
