Fixed: CE News would sometimes stop updating the display when changing to different news items
Fixed: GameServerPort now being correctly written to the engine.ini file
Fixed: MaxPlayers not updating correctly in game.ini
Changed: Removed auto saving of settings on exit, incase you had bad info, it isn't overwritten unless you specifically click the Save Settings button.
Fixed: When there was an error reading an INI file value, the rest of the file was not read, causing default values to overwrite your values.
Changed: Specifically setting the culture of the app to en-US so that INI file numeric values write correctly. Please let me know if this causes any issues for those whos culture is not normally en-US.
Fixed: If CAT is unable to hit the CAT home site to check for updates, an error message will be displayed in the CAT log, instead of throwing an exception
Fixed: Multiple changes around loading and saving INI files, the default CE INI files MUST exist as CAT cannot replicate all of the information created in the INI files by default as some of it is custom data to your server.
Changed: If config INI files cannot be found, they are not created. The must have been created by the CE server to begin with.
- Default files must exist
Added: Multiple checks on SteamCMD Folder, Server Install Folder and Server EXE file. Popups, and background highlight colors will happen when these controls lose focus and contain "bad" data.
Added: CE Server update check now also looks for "HOTFIX" to detect updates
Added: Tooltips to the SteamCMD folder, Server Install Folder and Server EXE File labels to help people understand what value is expected there.
Added: Default values for all of the dropdown boxes for Server Settings.
