Mancandy Gello material question

I’ve downloaded the (awsome) Mancandy Gello material and imported it into my scene but when I try to change the base (orange) color, it looks like it has changed but when rendered it reverts back to the orange color and changes back in the color picker too.
I’ve also tried to make a copy of the material and change the base color and the same thing happens.
Any ideas on how to do this?, Thanks in advance,

make sure you are appending and not linking. maybe. I have never linked. :slight_smile:

I was, it even does the same thing with the original (.blend) file, I forgot to mention that I downloaded the material as a .blend file from the Blender Material Repository
