Modboy

A Modding Tool for Modboy

Updates

v3.7 - Download Error Message 6mo
  • Addition Added an error dialog that shows up when Modboy fails to download the mod. Apparently it didn't have one before for some reason.
v3.6b - Let's try that again 2y BugFix v3.6b - Enabling Spray Installation 2y Adjustment HL, HL:OF, HL:BS, HL:E Basic Support 2y Addition4 v3.6 - History Page Revisions and List Persistence 2y Addition3 Improvement

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.

    Could you possibly do the following or add them to your todo list?
    • Create a second view option where all items are shown in a list instead of large boxes
    • Pending downloads/updates/uninstalls should be displayed in a separate group above all other items
    • NOPE: Allow non-compatible items to be inspected and manually configured within Modboy (these configurations will be remembered by Modboy when updating the mod)
    • Add RAR5 support

    Thank you so much for the TF2 update! Sounds would be the next best thing to work on.

    Hi there,

    I am also suffering from the error saying message below, 

    "Modboy doesn't know how to install this submission type"

    I'm a newbie in this web, so I don't know how to use it appropriately and I want to know whether there is something I should set to use this program. 

    I want to solve this problem.

    This is the link of skin that error occurs : https://gamebanana.com/skins/152291

    Thx :)

    Why are people putting so much work into things like this? I admit, you have talent, but don't waste it. No one uses Modboy. I don't at all see a point for it. Is there any game that it supports that's like really hard to mod or something? I don't want to say it's useless yet, because maybe there's some super hard to mod game out there that I don't know about. And how come it can't install every type of mod for TF2? All you do to install a TF2 mod is to plop it into Custom.

    I know you put a lot of work into this. I know it's been implemented into gamebannana, but as of now, I don't think it's at a stage where it's usable. I'm not sure I can say it's a good tool yet. I'm not even sure I can say it's a decent tool yet. 

    Maybe there's a whole lot of people who don't know how to install mods, and I'm just blind to see that. Maybe, installing mods is hard for a lot of people, and I've just never seen them. 

    Sorry if I came off offensive or mean or something, I'm just speaking my mind and I'm saying what I think.

    TL:DR you're forcing innovation where it's not needed.
