Mod Manager Options
|This Options page pertains to the Mod Manager in TNG 10.1 and after.
See Mod Manager Options - TNG 10.0.3 for the options provided in TNG 10.0.3 version of the Mod Manager.
A configuration file that allows users to change the processing options, was added in the TNG 10.0.3 version of Mod Manager. The options were changed in TNG 10.1
The mmconfig.php file is created by the Mod Manager code if it does not exist. The following are the default values

- Log File Name allows you to specify the file name to be used for the Mod Manager log. The default is modmgrlog.txt
- Max number of Transactions allows you to specify how many log transactions to keep in the log. The default is 200 transactions
- Collapse Log display allows you to specify if you want the View Log displayed in a collapsed or expanded format initially. The default is Yes but can be changed to No to display the log expanded normally.
- Redirect to Log For allows you to specify if you want go to the Mod List to be redirected to the View Log

- for All Transactions.
- The default is to redirect on Errors Only which displays the View Log only if errors are encountered in the install, uninstall, clean up, or delete transaction.
- Log full path for file actions allows you to select No to only display the relative path for files in the log. The default is Yes to display the full absolute path.
Display Settings Options
The Display Settings allows you to control some of the Mod List display:
- Sort Lists by allows you to specify on which column to sort the Mod List. Options are Mod Name or Config File Name. The default is Mod Name
- Use Fixed Headers allows you to change the option so that fixed headers are not displayed. This option is not noticable if you have a large monitor and few mods. The default is Yes to display the fixed headers. Note that regardless of this option setting, fixed headers will not be displayed for smart phones (mobile mode).
- Use Stripes allows you to change the option not to use stripes when displaying the Mod List. The default is Yes which uses the databackalt class to provide alternate color striping after N number of rows.
- Stripe after number of rows allows you to set the number of rows to display before the alternate color stripe is displayed. The default is 3 rows of databack and then 3 rows of databackalt to provide a ledger style stripe.
- Show Mod Warnings in Status allows you to turn off the syntax warning errors. The default is Yes to display the warnings. It is recommended that you do not change the default.
- Compress Mod Names in Mod List allows you to remove the blanks from the Mod Names before displaying them in the Mod Name list. The default is No which will display the embedded blanks in the Mod Name which should match the TNG Wiki article name
- Show Analyzer tab allows you to specify if you want the Mod Conflict Analyzer tab to be displayed. The default is No which is to suppress the display of the Analyzer tab
The Other option section allows you to set options to add the Delete button in order to delete previous versions of mods:
- Allow Delete Selected on Partially Installed Page enables the Delete button on the Partially Installed mods screen that allows deleting more than one mod at a time, such as deleting the prior versions of mods that were not deleted prior to installing the newer versions. The default is No. We recommend that you only enable this option when you need it to delete multiple mods without having to uninstall the current versions to delete the prior versions and that you normally leave the option set to No.
- Allow Delete of individually Installed Mods allows you to turn on the option to display a Delete button next to the Uninstall button for individually installed mods, such as deleting the prior version of a mod that was not deleted prior to installing the newer version. The default is No. We recommend that you only enable this option when you need it to delete a previous version of a mod without having to uninstall the current version in order to delete the prior version and that you normally leave the option set to No.
