dat/data load order confusion

Post by charlesdexterward » Sun Jul 05, 2020 4:09 pm

fallout2.cfg says "master_patches=data" and sfall's ddraw.ini states that the load order with DataLoadOrderPatch=1 (which is default) is "master_patches > critter_patches > patchXXX.dat > critter_dat > f2_res_patches > f2_res_dat > master_dat"
If I have RPU installed and change, for example, "text/german/cuts/narrate.txt" and put it under "data/", it doesn't work.  The "mods/rpu_german.dat" seems to have a higher priority. 
If I put the file into a dat, say "z.dat" under mods, it works fine.

Why is that?  Shouldn't have everything under data/ have the highest priority?

data should be the highest, if it isn't working, I suggest raising an issue in sfall repo.
Please do not PM or email me about my mods and projects. Use forums. Also, see our talk channels.

Sorry for stealing your time, I just made a stupid mistake with the folder structure. It works as intended.

Nevertheless, thanks for the quick reaction every time.
