Modboy

A Modding Tool for Modboy

Updates

v3.6 - History Page Revisions and List Persistence
  • Addition On the history page, each mod action record provides a link to the mod on Gamebanana.
  • Addition On the history page, you can now filter by task type (Install, Uninstal, or Verify)
  • Improvement Made list vs grid view persist between launches.
  • Addition (Server Side) Packed effects for TF2 are also supported, forgot to mention before.
While originally planned for this release, filtering of mods on the overview page by submission type (skin, map, etc.) has been pushed out to the next release, pending a bit of design rework to make it fit better on that screen. Functionality-wise, it shouldn't take me long, but I want to make it look decent at the same time.

Thanks Northern3D for the config!

Note: Because this is a server-side change, using v3.5 will still work.

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://<submission type>,<submission id>,<file id>
  • 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.

    Are effects currently supported? I've attempted to install four effects using modboy, and for all four it says "Modboy doesn't know how to install this submission type." For now, i have installed them manually, but for future reference, I'd like to know if i have either done something wrong, or if it is not yet supported.
