OK, after using Vortex and using it to manage Mods for Witcher 3, the extension seriously needs some updating.
1. Some mods require you to make changes, or add lines to the user.settings, and input.settings files
Apparently the Witcher 3 Mod Manager can do that, however, with Vortex, it backs up those files, and will silently restore the UNEDITED user.settings and input.settings files, leading to manually entered keybinds and settings being reset, because Vortex see the files have been changed and restores them.
Vortex needs to stop protecting/restoring these files
Yes, I've tried all three SAVE (USe deployed file), Revert Changes, and Save (Use Newer file), it's a crap shoot as to which it does though, sometimes the settings stick, other times, they're reverted to what they were BEFORE I edited the files
So, either have Vortex be able to manage those files by being able to manually (Or automatically add lines to them), or have Vortex leave those files alone.
2. Another problem is the dx11fileslist.txt and the dx12fileslist.txt files
If a modder puts those in their mod zip, Vortex will overwrite the already existing dx11fileslist.txt and the dx12fileslist.txt and wipe out any and all menu entries you had entered manually.
So you can go from this
With one click, and no warnings.
Again, the Witcher 3 Mod Manager can actually add the menu lines to the dx11fileslist.txt and the dx12fileslist.txt without blindly overwriting them.
Vortex Witcher 3 mod management is a very basic/generic mod management, and could really excel with a few improvements, but right now it's a bit overzealous with restoring/protecting certain files.
