In ..

Matorsmash \ Settings \ Skyrim \ Skyrim-SmashAllUpdate.zip <- I think this file is not required (it contains Smash.All.JSON, and Smash.ForceAll.JSON which have the same timestamp as the loose ones in the same folder)

Ah, I accidentally packed that with the release archive.  Thanks for pointing that out.

 

RE: color of active profile - I can make it a big more saturated, for sure.  Does this look better?

Yes that would be better, but have a look at Coblis

 

Use the "Choose file" button, then try the different eyesight types, monochromacy is the worst case scenario. Shapes and contrast help.

 

If the selected profile can be distinguished for all of those cases, you have cracked it ..

For all the "Wrye Bash Pictorial Guide" images, I found after a lot of research the following palette was good for a few colour blind people who helped me test it (there are a surprising amount of people in our communities that have varying degrees of red / green colour blindness)

(Its also not so harsh for normal sight, some colour blind friendly palettes can be horrible)

 

In use for monochromatics (and red blind protonopia) dont use the third and fourth colours adjacent to each other ..

But there are more palette choices which contrast well enough ..

Shapes can also give more help to present choices, this image needed shapes for the selection key, contrasting colours would not have worked too well with a limited palette.

 

Waruddar from the old Wrye Bash team (CBash programmer) was rg colour blind

 

Anyway I am rabbling .. Feel free to use anything from the above, my research was done for the community and meant to be used by anyone (now buried somewhere on the old Bethesda forum).

I think I may just move colors out into a configuration file or something, because making everything colorblind friendly is likely to make it ugly for everyone else.

... just throwing it out there that there's a semi insane but glad to be helpful video creator out there who will be happy to create certain things for certain topics if certain people ever want them at certain times. Generally he needs certain things to be taught to him like he's a child because this certain person takes a while to grasp things lol but ... he really does like being helpful = ) 

(GP has graduated from having issues to full blown subscriptions)

 

I would like to see you update the intro video to the newly released version, than do single segment videos (single segments can be updated easier if needed than long videos covering multiple subjects) such as using merged plugins alongside Mator Smash, How to compare the Smash Patch in TESEdit5 and how to tell if Mator Smash may have missed forwarding records, ect. I feel the more topics you can cover with this tool the better and they should range anywhere from novice to advanced. 

 

‚ÄčOn a side note you have the best tutorials out there in my opinion. I would love to see you do a series on building conflict resolution patches starting with the basics and working your way up to more advanced builds.

The thing that needs to be kept in mind when I create tutorials is that every minute of view-able content takes me 2 to 4 hours of my life to learn(research/question/test)and create(text,voice,gather footage,edit)... so even shorter tutorials need a lot of time spent thinking them out (and in many cases more time... if I'm going to create an entire series on one topic I need to write out all of the videos a head of time to make sure I'm not repeating myself except where necessary and not finding something out by the time I create video 5 that should have been a part of video 1 and now cause a remake of an entire set of videos)  . Conflict resolution is something that I'm learning how to present now in a different form. Since Smash will ultimately become a part of zEdit (as well as merge plugins) any content that I create for those programs today will be obsolete when zEdit incorporates then and Mator cause it official (this is also why I didn't dive deeper into Smash after that first video... time) = ) I have to pick and choose my battles and make sure that whatever I create can "live" as long as possible before it becomes obsolete.

Is there not supposed to be a merge option in the most recent version? Or did I somehow install it wrong somehow? Using MO2 by the way.

See the changelog in the OP or the FAQ section on the Nexus Mods mod page.
