Hope somebody can help, I'm tearing my hair out here! New to all this modding stuff and trying to package a simple mod with a modx file, but there's far too much info out there and none of it is making any sense lol!
Can anyone give step by step instructions on taking changes made to the core phpbb3 build and turning them into a mod package? Most of the changes are contained within new files (e.g. a new functions file, new templates etc.) though there are one or two changes to existing files.
Where do I start?! Do I have to hand write all the changes for the MODX and include the new files in the root folder, or is there a quick way to identify the changes and make the MODX? Is that even what I have to do? lol
I've now discovered I can compare files using WinMerge which makes life easier - that creates the mod's root folder without a problem, what else needs to be done? reading as much as I can but I'm just getting more confused
Right, getting somewhere I think! Am I right in thinking that my mod package .zip file should contain the following:
/root/[any new files]
Where install.xml is the MODX file detailing file copy (for /root/) and sql inserts/core phpbb code changes?
