Kaedrin's Mod Manager v1.8.10

Description
I've released the v1.8.10 update for the Warhammer 2 mod manager which can be downloaded here:

https://github.com/Kaedrin/warhammer-mod-manager/releases/latest

A copy can also be found in your \steamapps\workshop\content\594570\1399787504 folder due to subscribing to this workshop item. DO NOT ENABLE THIS MOD FOR THE GAME!

INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Download from: https://github.com/Kaedrin/warhammer-mod-manager/releases/latest
2) Unzip the folder in your Documents directory OR your Desktop. ANYWHERE except the game directories/anything related to Steam.
3) Create a shortcut to Warhammer2MM.exe and put it on your Desktop
4) If you need to set the shortcut to admin mode, right click the shortcut, go to properties, click Advanced, and turn on "Run as Administrator"


Changes and Bug Fixes:

v1.8.10 is a minor update with some fixes for date sorting, a date update for the new Shadow and Blade patch, and under the hood changes for the 2.0 update.

1. Date Sorting should be corrected
2. Out of date now shows based on the new patch for Shadow and Blade
3. A fix was put in for invalid table names in pack files (they will no longer crash the manager)
4. Under the hood changes were done in preparation of the 2.0 update and the uploader tool.

NOTE: If you get the ordinal error, turn off the NVidia Overlay as that isn't an issue directly with the mod manager.


]v1.8.9 is fix to the sorting and profile problems with the mod manager. I'll do a major cleanup of the readme and add a lot more FAQ/instructions with the v1.9 update.

1. Profiles should be cleaned up and fixed
2. Conflicts shouldn't show up when using bypass conflicts option
3. Launch game only complains when you use descending sort or a sort on one of the other columns and lets you cancel.
4. Whole thing shouldn't be annoying and should preserve everything.
5. Activating a profile should bubble everything to the top finally.
6. Sorting alpha with a profile won't screw a profile up.
7. Refreshing when you have a blank in the profile name box will clear the mods from the top and do a full alpha sort of the list and put it back into a "pristine state"
8. Switching between bypass conflict options will no longer break the titles in the list
9. Switching between use last profile options will no break the list sorting

The Merge Mod capability is used in the following way:
1. All mods that you have checked will be merged together.
2. The mod you right click to choose the option for will be the one that is chosen for creating a new file with _merge appended at the end. For example, right clicking on "test.pack" will merge all the checked mods in the grid into a single pack named "test_merge.pack"
3. Picking the same pack again for the option will currently overwrite the file without warning.
4. Conflicts are NOT HANDLED AT THIS TIME! Merge modules with conflicts at your own risk of crashing. You have been warned.

Known Issue - Napoleon will not work at this time as it doesn't not support the new Content folder scheme and I need to set the manager up to support it strictly from Data.

WARNING If you see the CA launcher download any files, once it is finished downloading you need to click the refresh button in the KMM in order for the KMM to move those new and/ or updated mods to the data folder.The refresh button will scan the content folder again and display any newly subscribed mods in the list as usual.

Upcoming v2.0 Release

https://www.reddit.com/r/totalwar/comments/8kadex/kaedrins_mod_manager_news/

I'm working out Steam integration and a ground up new GUI and have an initial feature set documented on that page if folks want to look it over.

Quick recap of how to use v1.8.7:

1) Disable all mods using the CA Launcher

2) Enable the mods you want using my mod manager

3) Click the Launch button and enjoy.

Make sure you click the Revert to Vanilla in order to go back to using the CA mod launcher(because my mod manager needs to delete key files it uses in order to allow the CA launcher to resume working correctly).

You can leave my mod manager up and running while you play and while you use the CA mod manager in order to download update mod files. The refresh button will reload the GUI and pick up any new(or deleted) mods.

The profiles will allow you to switch between multiple sets of mod files quickly and easily in case you prefer to have a set of creature files only enable when playing a certain race, etc.

Enjoy!

If you do happen to encounter any bugs, let me know here or email me at kaedrin.nwn2 @gmail.com Thanks and have fun!

Quick Information for how to "Reset" the manager in case it can't find your game, such as when you move the game using steam (between hard drives).

1. In File Explorer, type %appdata%
2. Go to the "Kaedrin Mod Manager" folder
3. Delete the "GameData.xml" file

Start the manager and it will detect the paths. You can also have the manager do this from the GUI by using the Options - Detect Game Installations option

Revert to Vanilla has been renamed to "Reset Program Settings" under the File Menu but it will not remove the mods from your Data folder (it only resets your manager settings). Only the "Clean Data" option under the File menu will do that.

mod manager进不去游戏的可以试试这个方法,win+R,运行输入 regedit,然后找到和mod manager有关的注册表,将其全部删除,再重新安装mod manager。这对我是有效的,希望能帮到你


If the mod manager cannot enter the game, you can try this method, win+R, run and enter regedit, then find the registry related to mod manager, delete all of them, and then reinstall mod manager.This works for me, hope it can help you

Crashed game on launch..

This feature is awesome but DAMN! The UX/UI is absolutly awefull! I was looking for the source code to help but I can only download the executable files. After modding skyrim for years, it is hard to use such a poorly designed/user friendly mod manager.

The good news is, I can help witgh the UI if you are using .NET technologies. Let me know if you are interested (for free of course!)

is it ok to have both rome 2 and warhammer 2 on kaedrin's mod manager at the same time?
PSG Sep 7 @ 9:29pm 
I thought a lot about it.
The best way to date has been to use the Chrome Remote Desktop Program.
But this seems to be a big difference in performance.

I'm sorry, but I have a question.
Is there a way to use that mod with the steam streaming service?
