the last manual mod install I made was probably on 1.9.9, back when EM was pure crappiness

now, if it doesn't install with EM I don't even consider having it, if it conflicts, I don't consider having it, guess I just got lazy lol

plus installing with EM is in my oppinion the easiest way of finding out if everything is basically correct with the mod you're making :)

... not to mention making sure you haven't left anything out in your MOD installation instructions. :-) I've written quite a few MODs for folks... writing the MOD is often the easy part. Documenting every change required is more time consuming. Then you have to write everything up. I've (more than once) managed to leave out at least one step. :roll:

I ususally do the .mod files on the fly, but too often it happens that I just forget to update soemthing, or I jsut mess everything up, EM tells me where I did a no no and I love it for that :D

I've installed several mods that clashed under easyMOD - all you need to do is run easyMOD, which will complain about a particular step. So I go into the code, look at the actions in the mod file and attempt to combine the functions of both mods into that part of the code - usually it's an easy case of a failed find because of a slight modification from an earlier MOD. Then in the mod file I delete that action cos it is now done and EasyMOD can proceed. It may complain about other actions which are dealt with in the same way. At the end, I have fixed all the clashes, and Eas MOD has made all the non-clashing changes for me which speeds up the process a lot. I then end up (as long as I've got the clashes sorted correctly) with both mods running quite happily at once. Of course there can sometimes be odd side effects, but that's the risk you run when combining too many mods.

How much truth there is into your sentence, drathbun. :wink:
Lot of months passed since i wrote in this topic and lot of code i wrote, read, understand..
Probably what i'm writing now will be not at all agreed by somebody but i suggest (as i did) to manually do MODs in order to learn php/phpBB (if you want it) and/or use EasyMod only with approved ones (MODDB)..
I don't like a 'machine' to tell me what a do, i like to use my brain instead (i'm assuming it is better.. lol).
Until someone will give me the proof an AI works better and fast (fast is related..) than a normal brain i'll keep persisting on this way.. 8)
Please PM me only to request paid works. Thx.
