Mod installation

Post by Oldtimer » 20 May 2020, 10:15

Hi all,

am I`m supposed to install a mod to MW:s Data Files and then point OpenMW to there or should the entire mod be put somewhere in the OpenMW also?
Or the other way round, unpack the mod to wherever outside MW Data Files and then point OpenMw to it?

Any install vid of latest OpenMW nightly available?

To install a nightly, just download it and extract it somewhere. Pretty much anywhere will work.

The best way to install mods is to put them in a separate directory on their own and then point OpenMW at it in openmw.cfg. If you use Mod Organizer 2 and its OpenMW Export plugin, it can do this for you.
