I Wrote a Mod Installer for OpenMW (Linux only ATM)

Post by Yummychickenblue » 31 Mar 2018, 04:31

I've written omi, a utility to install mods that can automatically copy files and generate an openmw.cfg entry.

What it's able to do:
  • Install mods (currently to the path ~/.config/openmw/mods.
  • Generate an openmw.cfg entry for the mod directory
What it can't do:
  • Uninstall mods.
  • manage load order, use the openmw launcher for that (I'd like to do this in the future).
  • right now it can't do much else.
it's written in Python 3 with PyQt5, so you'll need both of those packages installed on your system. It won't work with Python 2 due to syntax differences, so always run with python3.

It should work fine for most mods, but please make a post here if it for some reason copies the wrong files. To run it, simply type python __init__.py into a terminal inside the omi directory. Also, as of now the secondary tab doesn't do anything, I have plans for it later but it's useless at the moment.

I feel like I have approved this topic several times? Is that my mistake or have you been re-posting it?

Does it only recognize mods, installed with it?

I haven't implemented a way to view installed mods yet.
