TNG 10.0.2
TNG 9.0

This mod is obsolete with TNG V10.0.3

Purpose of the mod

This mod sorts the mods in the Mod Manager by their name instead of their filename.


This mod was developed by Bart 'Roebie' Degryse to answer a question by Roger Mitchell on the TNG mailinglist.


  • 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 the config file from the downloaded zip 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.

Feature List

By default this mod sorts the available mods in the Mod Manager screen alphabetically by their name (rather than by their filename) in a case-sensitive manner while ignoring any leading spaces in that name. By editing the mod's parameters you can change this default behaviour to your liking though:

  • leading spaces can be ignored (default) or taken into account
  • case-sensitive sorting (default: A B C before a b c) or case-insensitive (A a B b C c)
  • alphabetical sorting (default: A to Z) or reverse sorting (Z to A)

In the event of a problem

  • Try using the Mod Manager Remove capability
  • Copy the backup of the affected files back to your TNG directory
