Best Alternative to Nexus Mod Manager?
Last time I played through Skyrim I used the Nexus Mod Manager to install my mods but now it seems to be completely unusable (it crashes constantly and corrupts my fomod files). What is everyone else using to manage their mods?

Jai - go to the nexus site and download the new version (0.46.0). They have changed the way the manager connects. You should be able to connect instantly after that with no issues.

Yes there is infact a better mod manager http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/1334/? . This mod organized program doesnt put your mods directly into the game folder instead it holds all your mods in a seperate program so if anything goes wrong with a mod it doesnt infect your Skyrim game file. I have had the issue where i test a few mods out that leave errant files behind that after a time they will corrupt the game folder and i end up having to erase and reload my entire game so after the third time or so i had enough and made the switch to this. It also works offline by default so no more waiting for five minutes for your mod manager to start so you can play your game. You can launch all your other Skyrim apps such as BOSS, Tes5Edit, FNIS, and SKSE from there as well. It holds multiple profiles at once and remembers the mod list for each so you just select the game profile and the mod organizer turns on and off the mods connected to that profile. And NMM only holds 250 mods max, Mod organizer can hold over 8,000. Im not sure if i'll ever use that much but what the heck. Basically everything that NMM does wrong this mod organizer does right and since your not connected to nexus by the dangly bits your free to explore other modding sites as well. Oh, and theres this as well http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/31499/? a video series to explain how to get the mod organizer up and running and all the great things it can do for your game. Trust me, make the switch i only wish i had done earlier.

What about those of us who are banned from the Nexus, and thus can't use most of these links?

It's so good that it's currently under review at the Nexus - I wonder why.

Is it possible to turn off the auto update for MO? I like that I could get rid of both OBMM and FOMM and just have one utility that does all I need. Why ask here? I don't have to sift through all the pages on Nexus - Okay, hands up, it's Sunday and I'm being lazy.

Damn I don't know what I would do if I couldn't get mods from the nexus, that would suck. Have you tried using a proxy to make a new account?

I don't think that information is relevent. Especialy since the Nexus staff have a reputation for following users onto other web sites and using things said there against them on the Nexus...

If you have static IP, can't you have your ISP change the IP they assign to you?
