Hi,

how can I place my plugin to be the first in load order list (for test/debug reasons) ?

I changed its name to "a", but it doesn't move from initial 56-th position.

Thanks,
Alex.

Plugins are loaded in alpha numerical order (by filename) however i've seen windows/linux act differently depending on their setup.

Automatic plugin load order is not guaranteed on any platform. Don't rely on it.

It looks like much as a random.

Now, I was need vice versa, to have my plugin in the last place.

I renamed to "Z.smx" and my plugin is on 56-th place.
I renamed to "ZZ.smx" and it's on 44-th place

Why do you want to change the load order? Your plugin can use OnAllPluginsLoaded() for when all the plugins are loaded in

Bacause I need to test different behaviour of Cvar cfg read bug.

In other hand, I need to check server for this bug presence. In that case, plugin needs to be in the last place. But, I think:
Code:
sm plugins unload ..
sm plugins load ..
in server.cfg will be enough for such task.

(Windows) From what I noticed, any plugin that starts with an opening bracket doesn't follow the alphabetical order. Anything with an underscore in front is taken as first priority and anything starting with a bracket will only be arranged based on the first letter of the actual plugin name.

Example:

1. _[L4D2]Survivor_Legs
2. Anti-Speedrunner System
3. [L4D & L4D2] Super Tanks+
