Addon Load Order

The folders are checked in this order:

    1. mycontent\addons
    2. vbs2\addons
    3. ca\addons
    4. addons
    5. user specific folder (f.i "C:\Users\Martin\Documents\VBS2\addons")
    6. mycontent\Campaigns
    7. vbs2\Campaigns
    8. ca\Campaigns
    9. Campaigns

Inside each of these folders all PBOs/ZBOs are loaded and then also all subfolders are scanned recursively. PBOs that are loaded earlier are "more important" and "mask" any PBOs with the same prefix that are loaded later.

Also, PBOs in the same folder mask ZBOs with the same name (i.e, PBOs are preferred).
