No problem, just committed the fix.  My testing didn't turn up any issues, but it couldn't hurt to have at least one other person test.

Greg, I would like to try it out here. Can you send me some simple instructions on what I need to do? Also, I need to use a different build or not?

I noticed that the Cutscene pack has always been in Games Category rather than Resource Pack Category on Forge. Is that true? If that is the case, I am not sure I should be downloading a game into a game? I think I am not understanding the problem fully.

Hi Rob -- I did upload the "Cutscene pack" as a game first, just to share it with everyone so that they could see how everything worked in a game. 

Later, I uploaded a resource pack called "Cutscene".  This is what you would use to get these actors/behaviors into one of your existing games.  This is where the icon problem reared its head.  To test, you can stay on the same build you're already on.  Simply download the "Cutscene" resource pack into one of your existing games, and verify that every downloaded item has an icon.  If that works, then that's pretty good verification that the fix is good to go.

Thanks!


(to clarify, you don't need to update your build because I uploaded the resource pack on my locally updated build -- meaning the resource pack on forge should be clean)

I see what you are saying. My main confusion was i can't seem to find the Cutscene in resource pack at first. It turns out it is only in the Newest category. Anyway, I downloaded it into my game and now I can see Behavior->For Actors->CutScenes and a total of 14 items (ALL WITH CLEAN ICONS). So look like we are good. Thx for the fixes.

On a separate note, there are still a couple of small bugs/enhancements I noted and not sure you can address them.
One of them is in SF where we are not highlighting the subcategory name (like Featured, Most Useful, Most Download,
Newest, Highest Rated) on top. Another one is removing games/downloading games with same title which seem to be causing some confusion. I still need to nail this second one down.

The highlighting was added several patches ago.

Thx Jon. Verified that it indeed has been fixed. One of my copies was old.

On the other issue, it's rather trivial. Say I've 4 games and I deleted a game, the count next to Games will not decrement and it will stay at 4. It will not become 3 unless i exit and reenter SW.

However, if I download additional game from Forge, it will increment accordingly.

In summary, only game deletion will not decrement game count.
