On Windows 10 v1909 (possibly other versions) if Game Specific Settings is selected as the Automatic Updates method the settings are not honored.
I have been able to reproduce this on 3 different systems all running the same version of the client and same OS.
Client version: 220.127.116.1198
OS Version: 10.0.18363
Steps to reproduce:
- Open desktop client.
- Go to Settings
- Select Game Install/Update
- Set Automatic Updates to Game specific settings
- Set Games to Latest & Future Updates
(Hearthstone and Starcraft selected in my test)
- Press Done
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 and find that Automatic Updates has been set to Apply latest updates and download future patch data for recently played games.
