Question about how EasyMOD works in order to understand

Wondering why that MOD you have won't install correctly? Let's take a look

Question about how EasyMOD works in order to understand

Post by julesagogo »

how to handle errors.

I read the FAQ and the ReadMe regarding not FINDING a line in a file and understand I need to correct that (my installation has mods), however I can't see where it tells me if any changes have been made to the production files. I'm guessing the files are copied into that mod's folder then the changes are made to the real files after encountering no critical errors?

The ReadMe is great! Maybe adding a little about how to handle the errors would be a good idea? EM gives some (likely unintentional) conflicting information in the report (below). I guess I'll delete the mod and do the changes by hand. Sigh. :) I guess I can also fix the error and hope EM handles it...I'll try that.

Thanks - love EasyMOD!

EDIT: The problem I was having was me being ignorant (or likely just stupid) about mods - I didn't think mod changes would interfere with phpbb vanilla. Instead, I thought they would enhance (add to) it. I found the offending name and changed it in the update script and it worked great.

I didn't quite understand your post, but since you added an error, I assume that it needs fixing?
You really need to make things clearer in your posts.
