Merging Mods...
« on: March 15, 2019, 06:10:35 PM »
Hello community, I am glad you exist.

I am also hoping someone could give me pointers in a general direction towards what I am to do to get my mods working. I am trying to get the best possible experience out of Torchlight 2 by installing the best mods I can find, which spans across all categories. I've already had a major success in getting all the classes into one mod, but now I am at the map/dungeon category and I am having a lot of trouble getting them to work, whenever running a mod that combines all my dungeon mods into one. Even if I don't, still others don't work if I select them all in the modlauncher.

Someone mentioned that this happens because two or more mods are trying to edit the same file, and I should try and find which two do, then either sacrifice the one for the other(s) or edit the one so as to not conflict with the other(s). How would I go about doing this? I am not here to ask of anyone to do this for me. It would be a very big task as I have several other categories I am meaning to do the same with. I would simply appreciate a bit more info and, by extension, some examples would be lovely.

This mod limit is ridiculous, and I wish there were a way to bypass it. Otherwise, I wouldn't have had a problem.

Thank you kindly and have a splendid day ahead.

Edit: I have found that changing the order in which you extract/unpack the mod files happens to be the solution to this problem. Thank you.

Hi @Xiper ! First of all welcome to the torchmodder forums!

Glad to hear youve found a way that works ;) did you get all features running that you wanted? If there's still some that arent you may have to do that choose-or-edit thing. Finding the files which are conflicting isnt hard its just tedious.

I believe youve been merging entire MEDIA folders and disregarding the conflict warings? Its those warnings which will tell you which files are in conflict. But so that you dont have to wade through dozens and dozens of conflict warnings, you should merge sub-folder by sub-folder instead. On a per-folder basis you should only see 1 to 3 file conflicts.

Once youve isolated those you can come back here for help with how to edit them. For things like levels/dungeons I, unfortunately, am not any good with those :P but thers others here who might be able to give guidance.
