How does upgrading affect custom settings for each game?
#1
A while ago I found out how to make copies of the PCSX2 config files and load them up for each game courtesy of Rezard's great thread here:

http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-Auto-Boot...Separately

This is a huge help as it allows different settings to be made to different games which are then saved and loaded when you launch the game from a shortcut.

My question is, how will these custom configs be affected if I was to upgrade between (for example) v1.0.0 to 1.2.0? I assume that there are sometimes changes to the variables contained within the plugin config files which will then not be transferred to the existing copies I already have for each game in their custom directories.

I hope I'm doing a good job communicating this idea, its quite hard to describe Wacko

Why not indeed? I had no idea that this sort of thing even existed so thank you very much for that.

But how does that change what I asked above? What happens to the custom configs when you upgrade PCSX2 versions? If you upgrade PCSX2 then surely the ini's you are using are still from an outdated version. Do you have to reconfigure each game every time you upgrade?

If there are no changes to the command lines,you don't need to change anything.
You are just telling which settings to load and if the settings point to the correct dll names,everything will be the same.

So would there be no changes between relatively major releases like 1.1.0 and 1.2.0 then? I guess it depends solely on when plugins are updated right?

I doubt there will be any change(such change)between 1.1.0 and 1.2.0
As I said,you are just telling pcsx2 where is the game and where are the settings for the plugins.

If the new plugins have the same name as the plugins you used before,there will be no change at all
You will only have problems if you remove the old dll files and the new one are not with the same name and if the plugins and pocsx2 settings use different names for the settings(I doubt that will happen)
