Override Folder Explanation

Okay, I figured this was a bit of a confusing thing for some people and my explanations earlier weren't ultra clear or awesome at all. So here I will hopefully make it easier to follow.

And what better way than with pics? :D

Okay, so now for the Resource.

Double click your Resource file and it should open up in Notepad. This is how mine is set up.

Priority 900
PackedFile Awesome/*.package
PackedFile Awesome/*/*.package
PackedFile Awesome/*/*/*.package
PackedFile Awesome/*/*/*/*.package
PackedFile Awesome/*/*/*/*/*.package

Priority 800
PackedFile Override/*.package
PackedFile Override/*/*.package
PackedFile Override/*/*/*.package
PackedFile Override/*/*/*/*.package
PackedFile Override/*/*/*/*/*.package

Priority 700
DirectoryFiles  Files/... autoupdate
PackedFile Packages/*.package
PackedFile Packages/*/*.package
PackedFile Packages/*/*/*.package
PackedFile Packages/*/*/*/*.package
PackedFile Packages/*/*/*/*/*.package

Yours doesn't have to look exactly like this, but make sure that THE OVERRIDE PRIORITY NUMBER (which in my case is set to 800) IS HIGHER THAN YOUR PACKAGES PRIORITY NUMBER. I think most people have it set to like 500 or 600, so for the Override folder, set it 100 higher (so like 600 or 700). 

Hell, you can just copy the above into your own Resource file, or grab the Resource I put in with this Override folder here.

Please, please, please if you have any questions, I DO NOT BITE. I will do my best to help you. :D
