Modboy

A Modding Tool for Modboy

Updates

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 am having an issue with the most recent version.

    Whenever I click the 1 click download, it opens a little tab asking if I want to open with ModBoy, and I click yes. 

    The issue is it does nothing afterwards, is there something I need to do to get ModBoy to work?

    I have a problem. Any type of file that I try to install for tf2 fails, Like when I try to install it fails at the unpacking part and says "Failed to execute crucial installation command. Task cannot continue." If there is any kind of solution to this I need help immediately.

    Hello, I have an issue with the program

    When I click the one click installation button on TF2 mods. Any of them in-fact. I get the "Open Modboy" prompt and Modboy opens, The problem is that Nothing happens after that. Modboy stays empty with no reaction, no error messages. Nothing. I looked online for 2 hours on how to use this program but came up with nothing. I'm very confused.

    Thank you to anyone who will be willing to help me out.
