DOWNLOADS AND INSTALLATIONIf a mod is hosted on the Nexus, you can add it to MO in two ways. One is to click Download With Manager under the file on the Nexus, and this will download it directly to your mod manager. The other is to click the Manual Download button, and this will download it to your download folder.
Nexus Mod Manager Uninstall All
See below for specific instructions.MOD ORGANIZER 2DOWNLOAD WITH MANAGER:When you first launch MO it will ask you if you want to set it up to use nxm links, which means do you want to be able to use the Download With Manager button. Click yes.To sign into the Nexus with MO, click on the screwdriver, and spanner symbol (configure settings, and workarounds) on the main top left tool bar. Click the Nexus tab, type in your Nexus user name and password, and click the box that says automatically login to the Nexus. It will automatically login for you when you press the Download With Manager button.If you did click yes, and you want to choose where MO stores the mod, click on the screwdriver, and spanner symbol, click the Paths tab, and point the downloads to a folder of your choosing. To do this click the tab with three dots opposite downloads, and navigate from there. It could be useful if you want the mods to be stored on your HDD, rather than your SDD, to save space.MANUAL DOWNLOAD: To add a mod to MO that you downloaded manually, click the computer and CD symbol (Install a new mod from an archive) on the main top left tool bar, navigate to where your mod is located, and double click it.INSTALLATION: Once a mod has been added it will appear in the left panel. Click the box next to it to install it.
If it contains a plugin, it will then also appear in the right panel, which is your load order.When installing a mod with MO, it may say 'No game data on top level', and a screen will pop up. If it does, double click the mod in the pop up screen, right click the Data folder, and set it to data directory. Sometimes the Data folder will already be showing.To uninstall, un-tick the box you ticked to install it. If you want to remove it completely, right click it, and select remove.OVERWRITE FOLDER: The overwrite folder is found at the bottom of the left pane, and is used to store files MO doesn't recognise, because it doesn't know where to place them. What you do with them depends on what type of file it is. Double clicking it will bring up the main folder it contains, but to access the contents, you need to right click Overwrite, and select open with Explorer.Keep an eye out for the triangle containing an exclamation mark near the top right corner turning red, and a number appearing.
This will let you know the Overwrite contains files. If you leave the files in Overwrite, and do not place them correctly or delete them, it can cause a CTD.SEEedit: When you clean your masters it will place a back up of the original plugins into the Overwrite Folder. If you want to keep them you can create a folder elsewhere, and drag it into that. Or copy, and paste it into it, and delete the original from the Overwrite.Another option would be to right click the Overwrite Folder, and select create mod. The folder will be removed from Overwrite, and appear in the left pane. If you do this, don't activate it.The easiest option is to just delete the back up, as you don't really need to keep them.FNIS and SKSE: Any log files created by these that appear in the Overwrite need to be moved into the correct folders.
First open the Overwrite folder with Explorer, and see what is inside. Find out which mod it is for.Then go to the main folder for MO, open it, and open the Mods folder. Open the mod the log was for, and then place the file/s from the Overwrite into the corresponding folders. I find it easier to copy, and paste them into it, and then delete them from the Overwrite.Example:In the Overwrite folder you find SKSE/Plugins/Fus Ro D'oh.You would then open Mod Organizer 2/Mods/Fus Ro D'oh/SKSE/Plugins, and then move the Fus Ro D'oh file from the Overwrite into the Plugins folder.GENERAL TIPS FOR EITHER MM: If like me, you don't have a premium account, your mods from the Nexus will only download at 1MB per second.
This isn't a big problem if you plan for it by downloading the mods you will need in advance. I tend to have about five mods downloading at any one time.Sometimes the mod is named differently on the download than its named on the Nexus, but it will share the name found on the files page of the mod (almost always), so check there to see what to look for if your struggling to find it.You may want to keep an untouched copy of any mods you use, because it's not unknown for mod authors to hide them temporarily, or even remove them completely.In the guide you'll find A LOT of instruction referring to left and right panel. This will be about left panel.LEFT PANEL.
