I have tried to add .json files to MO 2 but from what I can see, they're missing meta tags. How can I add the files? And I have MO 2 placed in E:steam/steamapps/common/FO4 but all my MO2 files are on C:users/(username)/appdata/local/mo2/fo4. Do I need to move all those files into the E: drive folder?
Manually adding .json files to MO 2

Not sure what you're trying to do exactly. Why the need to manually add *.json files and why are you worrying about their not having meta tags. Also what do YOU mean by "meta tags"?

Trying to add face presets but keep getting "no game data on top level" error message. What other information does it need and how can I add it? Does it need a folder with meta.ini information added?

That is because the *.jason is not a game related. You can right click the installed mod and select the ignore option or create a known empty folder in the mod, Meshes or Textures. If the mod that needs the *.jason can not see it then you will have to reoprt it to the DEV team.

Give me an example of a mod that uses them and I'll see if I can replicate. Don't do a lot of FO4 modding so I haven't seen what you're describing.

I figured it out. Had to go into the mods file and create new string <character name>F4SE>Plugins>F4EE>Presets><character name.json>. That added the file plus the empty .json file to load. The I deleted the empty .json and enabled the file I created, and it installed correctly. I'm new to MO2 and still learning, not bad for a 61 year old gamer.

The files I had to add were all manual downloads from Nexus. An example would be nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/17466. That was the first that gave me trouble.

Glad you got it sorted. 61 eh! So I'm no longer the oldtimer around here.

I do have another question. I installed MO2 in my Fallout 4 games file, but all the data files go to another drive. Do I need to move those files to the game folder install? Game files on E; drive, but data on C: drive. Yeah, 61. Don't know many gamers around my area my age, so I guess I'm an oddity. I can't find tutorials online for the questions I have, so I have to figure everything out myself. Over the years I've forgotten so much about computers and files I used to know, so I've got a real learning curve for MO2.

MO2 is installed either as: "portable ie. everything is in the one place" or "instanced ie. all relative folders and configuration is in %Appdata%\Local\ModOrganizer\Fallout 4\"
MO2 doesn't need to be installed anywhere near the game. In fact it is often better to install it somewhere else as most users have their games inside a UAC folder where Windows takes control of it.
e.g. Program Files (x86)
Sounds like you have an instanced install. Keeping everything there is fine, it is just a matter of choice. %Appdata% is usually hidden so the option is given so newbies don't fret where their stuff is stored.
If you can post your mo_interface.log here I can see what you have configured.

Not an oddity at all, 62 in 15 days.
My setup is game on D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Fallout 4.
MO installed in E:\PC Installed Programs\ModOrganizer.
Mods are in D:\Modorganizer Central\Fallout 4\mods.
Profiles are in D:\Modorganizer Central\Fallout 4\profiles.
Downloads are in E:/Modorganizer Central/Fallout 4/FO4 Downloads.
I set everything up and then pointed MO to them from the Settings/ paths tab.

The main thing I'm concerned with is that launching the game from MO will detect my installed mods from the other drive. If it can't load them then I may have to move everything. I usually like to keep everything simple.

Then I should ask are you having a problem with this or are you just concerned?
Posted 31 December 2017 - 11:36 PM
I launched the game and after the start page, I let it run and it didn't load to the game start. That makes me wonder if I need to move the files, or there may be something else keeping it from loading.
