    Re-skin for v2.0 :) no more tiny compact menu!
    Lots of new addons and features too.

    Edit: v2.0 will have a modified version of FT Improver built into it so there will only be 1 menu available.

    One of the most unexpected problems modding these old games is reaching one's audience-- many potential players simply don't know what to do with the raw material the modder provides. Good job on this, then. :clap: Anything that helps get players playing faster and easier (rather than reading instructions and fiddling with files) is a useful and laudable tool.

    Would you mind providing an explanation of the file formats used, as well as what's required for someone to make their own mods/plug-ins?

    Great job on the mod manager. Something to hopefully help stimulate a small community into some more custom content. Definitely looking forward to Last Vegas.

    @Endocore
    Thanks, the real goal is to help out the non-modding and gaming communities. :)

    @Shadowvalor
    Was going to complete v2.0 before releasing a Plugin/Modding tutorial, v2.0 will be here tomorrow anyways.

    Thank you, Last Vegas will also be updated shortly.

    Mod launcher nice,but the only thing i want from a mod is to analyze the sprites and the entities(to look at their sprite look and their stats) can i do this in the Mod Launcher?

    For example when i downloaded your newest version of Enclave i couldn't see the zip. or rar. Enclave.


    I needed the zip and rar because that way i could modify the entities stats from the Enclave mod.

    Updated the plugin instructions to clear up any misunderstandings or mistakes on my part.

    Coming soon:
    A new bug fix version of the Mod Launcher v2.1
    New mod plugins.
    The very first Plugin-Mods.

    News:
    New community project(s) Named "Fallout Tactics: Restoration" for the Mod Launcher that will try to fix all known fixable bugs in the vanilla Fallout: Tactics game based on Fallout Tactics Redux by Endocore, this plugin-mod will be compatible with all future plugin-mods by RobCo for the vanilla Fallout Tactics.

    The plugin-mod will be updated live and updated every step of the way so the community can have a part in the development till a full release.

    Future developments for this project will include a Enclave variant that will fix any known fixable bugs after Enclave v3.3 is released.

    Added a Known Bugs section, you should check it out for the latest known bugs, if you find one that is not listed PLEASE post here or email me!

    Also updated a missing step in the install process for the Enclave mod, sorry about that guys :sad: that bug has been re-read at least a dozen times now by me and just got found, will re-test and then re-test again in my install process for all the available and future mods.

    Mod Launcher V2.1 is preparing for a release that will fix all known bugs and will add a visual enhancement to the menu.
