Thanks Northern3D for the configs!

Note: Because this is a server-side change, using v3.6 will still work.

  • 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.

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.

    Hello AoM, I need a little help. So I just installed Modboy to my computer successfully. So know I tried to click on (Modboy 1-click install) and the next thing that shows up is a blank website that says (Untitled) and the URL says [modboy://Skin, 158136,192670] I'm just trying to use Modboy on your Warpaint Promo Carepack. Thank AoM for reading this, and I hope you have a great rest of your New Years Day.

    The Custom Folder method folder method is broken and DLC 3 does not work and this just does the Custom Folder method so sadly for me it is useless. (but most things related to mods like beemod 2 have not been working lately so...)

    I'm not downloading this... It's much easer to install by myself. Plus the post below also seems to agree.
