Mod Manager Latest

From TNG_Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In TNGv12 and beyond, this mod uses the new guidelines for TNG v12+ cust_text.php files
If you are using TNGv12+, and any cust_text.php file in this mod is marked with a Bad Target error, you need to update your cust_text.php files before you can install this mod. [Show instructions]

If you upgraded to TNGv12+, and did not update your cust_text.php files as instructed in the upgrade readme script, then you must use the TNG Mod Manager to update them. To do so:

  1. Go to Mod Manager, and select its "Recommended Updates" tab.
    (If the "Recommended Updates" tab is not visible, then go to the Mod Manager Options tab, select "Display Settings", and turn on the "Recommended Updates" tab.)
  2. Click the "Update" button in the "Recommended Updates" tab.
    Installed mods do not interfere with the update, and if you already have (or think you may have) run this update, it will not hurt for you to run it again.

Purpose of the Mod

To facilitate access to the mods that are (perhaps) most likely to be processed next, this mod duplicates the Mod List table rows for n recently-processed mods, and places them at the top of the results table.

Mod Manager Options

  1. The number of mods to be duplicated at the top of the results list, and
  2. The maximum number of Mod Manager log entries to search in order to find the most-recently-processed mods. (Deletions and errors are counted, but otherwise ignored.)

Compatibility

No known incompatibilities or dependencies on any other published mods. As I write this, I have written all of the published Mod Manager mods.

Related Mods

This mod is compatible with and coordinates with my other Mod Manager mods:

  1. Mod Manager Compare, which generates a report comparing the mods in the local site with (optionally) the mods in a remote site, and their Wiki articles.
  2. Mod Manager Filenames, which affect the Filenames column of the Mod List.
  3. Mod Manager List Locations, which
    • Adds some display features to the list of target locations in the detailed status,
    • Hides the detailed status for mods that are "Installed" and "Ok to Install", but
    • Adds a button that lets you see the detailed status listing if you want, and
  4. Mod Manager Note Tags, which adds some .cfg file tags for annotation.

Any or all of these mods can be installed independently, in any order.
