Modboy - A Modding Tool for Modboy.

What is Modboy?

It's a tool to help download, install and manage mods available through Gamebanana for a variety of different games (listed here).

Differences from Modboy 2.x:

  • Login is no longer required.
  • Installed mods are no longer recorded on Gamebanana.
  • Modboy will now fail the install if it is unable to extract an archive, and notify the user as such.
  • Old Modboy endpoints on Gamebanana are no longer used. Core GB-API enpoints have been updated to support information needed.
  • Expected format of Modboy URLs has changed to modboy://,,
  • Description of a mod is now constructed from the game name, category name and submission type.
  • Better error handling and verbiage regarding failure to uncompress archive.
  • Filing a bug (for the time being) consists of Modboy copying relevant data to the clipboard and opening Gamebanana to PM me.

Help out by making Modboy configs for games you love! The config guide is here.

Got a question? Ask it here.

Please consider rating Modboy and voting me for Tooler of the Month.

  • I've broken it.

    The desktop link to it doesn't work anymore, it only opens when I try downloading something through the links normally included in popular tf2 mods that let you 'one-click download it with modboy'

    however, opening it this way doesn't help because there is a mod I tried to download that is taking forever to unpack, not letting me download other mods because they are stuck in the queue behind it. I thought maybe starting from scratch by uninstalling mod boy would work but when I reinstall it (I think ironically thanks to one of the new updates) it remembers who I am and the mods I've been trying to install etc so the mod is still there, presumably though it says it is unpacking, it won't ever unpack. It was just a simple reskin so shouldn't take that long. I tried clicking the cross button which I think is supposed to stop it from installing but it does nothing. Now it's sort of just stuck in a state of being shut down whilst unpacking forever. 

    Is there a way I can just uninstall it completely, delete my progress and data on it, and try again? I'm not sure how to do that, does it recognize me by PC or does it recognize my game banana account? I've no idea. 

    I'm kind of disappointed with it as it is a bit too simplistic and you don't really know what you're doing when you boot it up, leading to you making mistakes that can (in my case) apparently break it. Otherwise,

     I'm sure it's great, granted what I did was just a bit impatient and dumb.

    I keep trying to install mods for TF2, but it keeps saying "Failed to execute crucial installation command". I made sure that it's installing to the right folder inside the Team Fortress 2 folder, that being the "tf" folder. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

  • Hey there, is there a possibility that there could be a linux build for this in the future? Or does this absolutely require Windows only features/packages to function properly?

    Why do some submissions on games not have the modboy support? Like there's a tf2 sniper rifle skin that doesn't have the button, but there's another by the same submitter that does. Is there some setting you have to tick in order for it to work on the submission?

    Not having any luck with this one.

    First, it starts up after I launch it, and then I simply don't know what to do with it. Just wanted to used a mod for Portal 2, but I really don't know how.

    Second, after I close it for the first time I can't get it to start up again. I click the .exe file, or even the icon in the Start menu, and nothing happens. I even tried running it as an administrator.

    Just won't work. Period.
