Config Hierarchy Documentation Looks Wrong?

In the documentation for config files it seems to imply that when loading config files, the order in which they’re loaded is:

  • engine/config/base
  • engine/config/baseEngine
  • engine/config/platform/platformEngine
  • project/config/defaultEngine
  • project/config/platform/platformEngine

But I’m stepping through this in VS and what I’m getting is:

  • engine/config/base
  • engine/config/baseEngine
  • project/config/defaultEngine
  • engine/config/platform/platformEngine
  • project/config/platform/platformEngine

Thanks for reporting this issue! I will pass this along to the appropriate contact here at Epic Games.
