OMG!!! After so many twist and turns I finally found how to fix the problem, but it’s SO convoluted!
Turns out, I had to update SML to 2.0.0 on EVERY config type individually.
Select config type from the config drop-list under the satisfactory version drop-list (development, modded, vanilla)
Once config type is selected, verify that SML update button for version 2.0.0 appears next to the satisfactory type drop-list
Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each config type
I discovered that the “development” config type wasn’t updated to SML 2.0.0 when I was just blinding going around the UI in desperation. Modded was already updated since that’S the one I always use and vanilla didn’t seem to need it either (or it had already been updated.
Long story short, after updating “development” copnfig type, I was finally able to update mods and enter Satisfactory once again!
Is it possible to mark a post with a tag [Solved] in this forum?
