Hi,

Does anyone know how the game is handling duplicate graphic files? For example, if I have tier 1 - 4 of a country from previous year and for this year only tier 1 - 2 are available. If I download and replaces Tier 1 - 2 and keeps Tier 3 - 4 from last there will be a gap where some tier 3 teams does not have a kit (and some Tier 2 are duplicated). However, if I keep Tier 1 - 4 in a new folder called "2016" or "Old" and just add in the new tiers as separate folders. This will create duplicates for all teams in the country.

Does anyone know how the game decides which file to load when there are duplicates? Will it load the oldest file? Newest file? The file first encountered in the hierarchy (a folder called 2016 will be loaded before a folder called 2017) or the other way around (last in the hierarchy)? Or is it totally random?
I believe it's in alphabetical order. I.e. once the game captures a particular kit file, then it will ignore anything subsequent to it.
So if I name the file structure as the following I should be able to make sure that the game are loading up the current up-to-date kits first and then fills in the gaps with the old versions?

Kits / SS Kits / Country / Premier Division 2017
Kits / SS Kits / Country / XX Old / Premier Division 2016
You can find the solution. I've been doing this for the last few years. It will take some time. This is the only distress.
