A Modding Tool for Modboy

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.

    When it asks you to select a copy source, there should be an option to copy from the same folder for everything.

      Congratulations you have upgraded your program and effectively neutered it for everyone who used it. 

    I don't know how but you made it possible and im not sure whether i should be impressed or saddened by the lack of forethought as you were updating the program.

      It also caused vac issues with my tf2 files which was also nice *sarcasm* i think rather than updating it you should left it alone sure previous versions were buggy but nowhere near this bad.

    I liked how in older versions it actuallu automatically synced with my tf2 files and now doesnt and cant even find them. Stellar work

    Its still buggy it says that it doesn't know where my tf2 file is on one computer but on the other I don't have to select the file even when I do NOTHING happens besides a pop up that states the command of the file did not go through and stops the upload from going through. Even sometimes some mods don't even work! Like CS:GO. Its really odd that you said that it supports it but the gun mods I am attempting to use don't even work for ModBoy.
