    I did search for this Idea/Request being Posted before, but could not find anything, so here we go:


    I would like to have a File related Changelog within the Updater which tells me exactly which Files got changed in the Update, which has just been executed before. Instead of just a Number of how many Files got changed and an online Changelog which tells me what Bugs got fixed, or which new Things got added, but not which Files actually got changed.
    It would be helpfully in Situations in which you modded an original File and maybe forgot to back it up (the edited Version), but this is just one Example I can think of at the moment. There might be more, and of course also just for the sake of Information, as Information is always nice.
    Thank You for Your Time to read this.

    Yes and i thought i mentioned this:
    Not sure what You did miss here, or do i miss a Log allready included in the Updater, so on my PC and not online only?
    The Changelog Button in the Updater only opens a website, which does not tell anything about Files.
    Changes can effect multiple Files and not all Users might be able to distinguish which Files would be included in a Change listed in the online Changelog, as they are not mentioned in a File related Structure in there. Additional to that, i was speaking more about Changes the User did and had reversed by the Updater on his own fault, which then would obviously not be stated in the online Changelog.

    I'm not missing anything, I'm talking about a file called update.log in the game folder. That tells you what have been deleted, what created, etc

    Thank You for clarifying this for me! I really could/should have found that myself. -.-
    While it is still a little Cryptic in its Structure... just a little. :p
    PS: I am sorry, the "not sure what you did miss here" was not intended to be offensive in any Way, just noticed now that it maybe did come across a little offensive.
    Thank You too, sweet to know.
