Modboy

A Modding Tool for Modboy

Updates

v3.6b - Let's try that again 4mo
  • BugFix Fixed the contents of the build. Turns out it hadn't picked up the changes I made correctly, so it was using old code. I rebuilt it as release, and it seems to be working now.
If you previously downloaded v3.6b prior to this update, please redownload it again. Apologies about the mixup.

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.

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

  • Okay, this 'failed to execute critical installation command' problem is definitely a problem. So those of you with the exact same problem, I'm thinking it would be a good idea to collaborate to find out what the problem is, like what is the same between all of us and what's different to AoM?

  • Another thing, I was wondering if you could possibly allow it to automatically update mods when they were updated, though it could require collaboration with the site itself to allow it to send files to another program. But it may be possible? Question Mark?

  • I'm having a problem because when I try to install a TF2 Mod (no matter which one it is), it just says that there has been a problem with the download.
    "Failed to execute crucial installation command. The task cannot continue."
    I absolutely need help, it's my only way to download mods that work. PLEASE ;-;

  • I followed LowSpecGamer's link from his "How to run TF2 on a low end computer" video, and I am just wondering how this works. I don't really know what this does and I don't feel safe installing files that could mess up my game.

    Sorry to bug you again, but none of the mods that I've installed for Portal 2 seem to be working. Could I get some help with this?
