The new braindead auto-swap Temporal Warden was unplayable without a numpad, until I found this mod.
On behalf of all laptop players out there: thank you.
You know, you just reminded me why I bought this particular laptop: the numpad.
But, more to your second point, I don't use Steam, and none of zizzo's addons auto-update on any setting. It's something I've had to deal with recently and I thought I'd just mention it since it seems to be timely. I do want to say that I blame the addon updater itself instead of the addon dev for this clearly unintended behavior.
My wild guess about my problem is that tome may look for the file as indexed by filename to see if an addon has been updated. When a new file is created in an addon (to append the "version" number without eliminating the old versions), tome doesn't recognize that anything has changed because the old file still exists and is unchanged. Without native support for keeping old versions, I don't see what else zizzo could do other than have the file without version number be overwritten with the latest version of the addon, and then upload old versions with an appended version number. Then again, I don't know the guts of tome's systems in any detail, so it's just a wild guess.
That also doesn't really speak to the particular problem you're having with Steam. I guess it could be that the "profile" directory is saved to steam cloud, and that this is where the list of active addons is stored independently of the actual contents of the addons directory that is in the game directory proper. Steam could just being getting told to look at the addons list in the profile directory rather than the contents of the addons directory. So Steam knows that you're subscribed to an addon, and it sees the addons in the "active" list, and it just assumes the addon's downloaded and running. But then running tome should remove the not-installed addons from the list of active addons, which means Steam should go and get them... unless that info isn't getting to Steam cloud because tome is letting Steam manage workshop-listed addons. Maybe?
I dunno. I'm bored and talking out of my ass because I enjoy speculating aimlessly about peoples' software problems. You'd have to get Darkgod in to speak to the mechanical details.
