You upload a MOD package to a certain directory, tell AutoMOD to install it, and then the MOD will magically be installed on your board. That is, it makes MOD installation automatic.

Oh right, so you don't do anything at all?

Nothing at all to put a MOD on?? :?

Sounds like I might have to get it if that is the case! :D

You will have to adjust your styles template files if the style is not using the template inheritance feature or is not either prosilver or subsilver2.

Other than that, yes it installs mods without you physically touching the files.
