Upgrading DFU

Post by davidk64 »

Apologies if there is a sticky somewhere covering this. What are the steps to upgrade an existing DFU installation when a new version is released? I mean with regards to installed mods. Do you have to reinstall them or can you copy folders across? Especially with regard to the DREAM mod. Thanks for any guidance.

Yes and no. The safest way to do it is to just redownlaod and reinstall in the new build.

Many copy the streamingassets folder over and then check if any of the mods they use have been updated and upgrade those mods.
But this can be risky because the new DFU build can have changes to the files that are in StreamingAssets.

Yes, don't do that! Just copy mods, and any loose files over.
