Hello,

 

A few days ago I made some changes to a follower mod using the Construction Set (basically, change from essential to non-essential, so literally simply unchecking one box), however, now, while the game still seems to start and run, as far as I can tell, normally, I get two error messages in MO, namely:

 

1. There are files in the overwrite mod - what I find there is a file Modname.esp and a folder named Backup with a DEFAULT.bak file in it;

 

2. Ini Tweaks overwritten, with a Fix button - there are some explanations about a profile_tweaks.ini file and a recommendation to delete it, but I am not sure if the changes made are thus preserved or not.

 

Could anyone suggest what the best way to approach this would be? As far as I can tell, it is not game-breaking, but I would still like to have it cleared up, if only just in case.

 

Thanks.

When you made changes to the plugin using the CK the resulting file, Modname.esp, was saved into the 'Overwrite' psuedo-mod as expected. What you need to do is either drag that file into the mod that provided that plugin or create a new mod from the contents. The *.bak file can either be saved along with it or deleted, your choice.

Thanks for the reply.

 

So, it turns out the file I actually need is the one in the Overwrite, and the one I currently have is still the old one? Also, shall I 'fix' the .ini file, then, or would it be ok once the .esp is taken care of?

As the MO wiki explains, 'Overwrite' ALWAYS has priority so anything inside it will always win a conflict. Not knowing what is in the plugin I can't say whether the INI tweak will be needed or not, trial and error.

The MO Wiki as in this link here: http://wiki.step-pro...e:Mod_Organizer?

 

Regarding the .ini file, I am not quite sure as to priorities (the error message says a new file is created), or indeed why any changes should have been made to it, but the file is there indeed, and not too enormous in content, namely:

 

[General]

bUseMyGamesDirectory=1

 

I don't quite know what use of the game directory is meant here (storing saves is an option that comes to mind), but I assume if the game played all right as it was, it shouldn't be necessary, and it should be safe to simply delete it?
