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.

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

    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?

    I'm having an issue with the latest version where it takes forever to download anything. Literally. It says it's downloading, but nothing ever happens. Could I get some help with this?

    To the authors of this tool -

    I'm requesting support for my mods within this tool for ease of use.
    Considering that my mods are very simple - they're sorted within folders from a .zip file and contains only .vpk files (and soon, within my next pack, "[CS:GO Mod] Prisma Case Mod", .png image files), I was wondering if I can discuss methods to allow compatibility with my mods and using this installer with my mods, with a bit of tweaking to the tool to allow for direct access to subdirectories of the .zip files so that users can "select" their weapon options within this tool using a custom GUI only compatible with my mods.
    Further discussion on this is probably needed, as I'm looking for this tool to be my main installer for my mods.

    Edit:
    I was thinking of something like how Nexus Mod Manager utilized a GUI interface with mods that have options, such as ELFX for Skyrim, how it had the user select options for various settings of the mod.

    Thank you for your time, and I hope to see a developer contact me soon about this.

    I'm using The v3.6b and at first, it worked fine but now it just won't download a single mod that I try to download with it. If you could fix it or give an explanation to This problem I would be more than happy, thanks in advance.
