Thank you for this mod, it could be very useful :)
I too have a IOD.DLL file of - bytes in my mods folder... - Haven't as yet tried installing any mods via the manager yet tho...

Just a thought, would it not be easier to have the mod so people can actually just drop the mods they have into a mods folder, and your program reads that folder to determine what mods are there, then give you the option to activate them or not? (just a thought)

I do like this idea, to be honest, never even came to my mind! :-) This started out as me just fooling around at work for an hour one day and I realized that it might be useful, so I just continued on my original thought. I have messed with the idea of associating all patch files with the program which will automatically insert into not only the application but directly install it for use... As for the testing, we had quite a few operating systems from XP - 7 tested, everything worked fine. So if there is any issue please report them.

New features will continue to be added as long as everything is received alright. :-)

Great job, Rob!
I love this tool, it's cool :P

Can't wait to see more mods being added.

By the way, I think it would be quite convenient to have the description of a particular mod automatically appear when you click on the mod's name.

Thanks Elmo. Good news. the automatic view details code WILL be in the next update later tonight.

@Alex24, thanks for posting links, I appreciate the help in locating your modifications. Though for logistical reasons you might have been to late for today's update, I will def ensure addition of them in the short future though.

**BUG REPORT {Level of Importance: Low = Annoyance}
I stumbled on a slight glitch in the program, in the current released version if you install the 'Avatar' Modification it will work fine, however the next time you start the modification manager, the program will run an update code prematurely. this code will add another avatar mod entry to the available list because it did not check the installed list to see if the avatar mod is even there. This should not cause any serious issues except to confuse the hell out of the user. This issue affects only Modification # 81564562 (Avatar Mod)

How to fix if this happens:

Code: Select all

1. Uninstall the Modification 81564562 (Avatar Mod) from installed list
2. Reinstall the Modification 81564562 (Avatar Mod)
        |- This will remove the duplicate from the 'available' list.  This does NOT harm the program or modifications
        |- This does not affect game-play.
