  2. Un-zip the file and you will find the .cfg file there (if there's also a folder there: That's a Mac habit - don't bother).
  3. Move/copy/FTP the .cfg file to the mods folder of your TNG system.
  4. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.

Note: The config file includes the English language custom text.
The mod also includes German and Swedish texts if they are present in your system.
For other languages you can modify the config file to add the custom text or manually add to whatever language you like.

$text['xerxxDescCounter1'] = "There are ";
$text['xerxxDescCounter2'] = " descendants (plus spouses) in this view";
$text['xerxxDescCounterDup'] = " unique";

If you want to completely Remove (uninstall) this mod and all its tables, you should

  1. click the Remove button to uninstall the mod and then
  2. click the Delete button to delete the config file from the mods folder.

Revision History

Version Date Description
V10.0.0.1b 14 Oct 2016 The word "tree" changed to "view" ("Ansicht" / "Vy") - excellent suggestion by Willem van O. (See img below)
V10.0.0.1a 17 Sep 2016 The Wiki page link didn't work. Thanks to Ron K for the alert.
V10.0.0.1 4 May 2016 Prevented the mod to count persons in duplicate branches, e.g. cousins making a family.
If a duplicate person is found, the text will have the word "unique" added.
V10.0.0.0b 12 March 2016 Forgot the %fileoptional:% for the German and Swedish language files... Thanks to John Motyer for the alert.
V10.0.0.0 11 March 2016 Introduction.
