it is the order in which they get it from unitsync, it should be changed there. i am not absolutely sure, but i think it is ordered by archive file name, or even just a random order returned by some file-system search function.

The messed up thing is, in archivecachev7 they are all numbered sequentially.

It must be ordered by file name, and the pool format uses a seemingly random alphanumeric combination as a file name, so mods downloaded in pool format are all mixed up in springlobby.

oooooook, nooow that makes sense. I had always wondered. See, I thought that SL and TASC were reading the entries from archivecache.

I keep mentioning this to the SL folks (500 unsorted revisions of CA, bleh), but, for some reason, putting in an alphabetic title sort after unitsync parses them is inconceivably complicating. :|

Ticket exists for some time already. :P

The list is sorted when I use spring's latest dev version. I guess libunitsync was changed in that regard. You'll have that change on your desktop in a few weeks.

AFLobby/Battlehub managed it and that was years ago, surely it should have been done by now in both projects considering some are years older, and they've had years to learn by example.

Even some autohosts manage it, it's a simple sort operation, and it's already done in the code for sorting of maps
