Purpose of the mod

This mod will add an affected files list to each mod's description.


This mod was developed by Bart 'Roebie' Degryse following a discussion on the mailinglist between Graham Chamberlain and Jay Wilpolt.


  • A working TNG installation.
  • A backup of all affected files (see the list in the summary in the upper right corner of the page)
  • An installed current version of the Mod Manager (is already included in TNG v9)


  1. Download the appropriate zip file as shown in the summary in the upper right corner of the page. NOTE that I host these zip files on my own server. That way I can count the number of downloads for each mod I made and estimate the relevance of such mod.
  2. Extract all the files from the downloaded zip file (1 cfg file) into the mods folder.
  3. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.


  • Adds a list of all modified files to the description area of each mod in the Mod Manager.
  • Choice between a comma separated list (default) or a table.
  • You can alter the amount of whitespace between the description and the table (defaults to 8px and ignored if you choose the comma separated list).
  • Choice whether to display the newly created files (default) or not.
  • Choice whether to display the copied files (default) or not.
  • Choice whether to display list/table in the description column (default) or in the config file name column.

Other Languages

Those who use other languages in addition to English can find appropriate mods to add Dutch, French or Spanish custom text additions in the summary in the upper right corner of this page. Follow the same procedure as explained above to install them.

Visualization of this mod

The following images show the visual effects of installing the mod.

Without the mod installed

This is how the Admin >> Mod Manager page looks in the default TNG 9 template 3 layout.

Without the mod installed
With the mod installed - list view (default)

Once you have this mod installed this is how that same page will look like. Notice the comma separated file list at the bottom of each mod's description pane.

With the mod installed and using a comma separated list
With the mod installed - table view

Again that same part of the page, this time with a table listing all modified files.

With the mod installed and using a table
With the mod installed - optional features

This time the table is in the config file name column. The showing of the copied files has been suppressed.
