    This is already known by server admins, but maybe the devs dont know.

    map specific research (ie: emp_escort) or reinforcement multipliers will not update when the rest of empires updates due to some problem.

    i cant remove heavies from the newest version of escort unless i go to each server admin and ask them to update the map cfg themself.

    As I said last night I believe this is down to the files that get updated automatically each release.

    To update cfg files I believe that they have to be forced by beerdude/candles during the update process.

    If this wasnt the case itd be pretty annoying as you would lose all your client settings each patch

    but those are in completely different folders. the map specific cfgs are meant for mappers/server owners (but this might be a problem, though theres only so many servers) not for players.

    They are still cfg files which is what my point was about. You will probably find the full cfg folder does not automatically update

    Last time we updated the tutorial, I tried getting it to override the config file already there, but no dice. I'll give it another shot once the build server is working again.
