Game map issues.
I seem to have this issues where I'm not allowed to update any of the game maps. Every time I try, it just shows the image I had in what slot first, whatever slot that may be. Even if I delete the image completely and upload an entirely different image, the first image comes up.

The image is almost certainly being cached by your browser and you need to force refresh or clear the cache before you can see the new image.  In Chrome* it is Ctrl+Shift+Del to get the menu that will allow you to clear  saved images.




* Other Browsers are available.

Yeah, just refresh the page after uploading the new map - that usually works for me :).

You can also force an actual reload on most browsers by pressing Shift+F5.

A "deep refresh", "hard refresh" or "force refresh" is far easier than clearing the whole cache, so I'd recommend that.  But I thought it was Control+F5 (not shift).

I added the information for a cache clearance because a forced refresh (with either key combination) doesn't work for me any more.  I am not sure why it doesn't work and (TBH) I haven't had the energy or enthusiasm to hunt down the reasons.

Thank you all. The hard refresh seems to have worked. However, I must ask, do I have to do this every time?

Haven't seen that before ... in every other instance we've seen, map problems have been fixed by the forced refresh.  But yes, even if you were having refresh problems, the players would be able to see the updated map (they might have to refresh too, of course to clear their own caches).

H'mmm ... you're not trying to upload an image that's too large, are you ?  That would fail and therefore not replace the existing image ... but in that case you'd be getting an informative message telling you it was too big.

Otherwise ... back to basics.  What browers are you using ?  And what's it's setting for reloading pages, images etc ?

In Internet Explorer 11 (and same/similar in earlier versions, but I don't know about Edge) if you look under  Tools | Options ... General Tab, Browsing History section, Settings button it has four options under Temporary Internet Files tab:

    Internet Explorer stores copies of webpages, images and media for faster viewing later.

    Check for newer versions of stored pages:

    o Every time I visit the webpage
    o Every time I start Internet Explorer
    o Automatically
    o Never

Other browsers should have something similar
