1. IntroductionUltimate Auto Renamer is a tool for creators and users to simplify the process of managing the different game versions for mods.
3. For Mod UsersFirst you need to know if a mod Supports the Ultimate Auto Rename Tool just like my Metal Sonic Skin for example.
You can easily check it by taking a look in the folder of the mod you downloaded.
If there is a "Config.uar" file included the tool will support the mod.
Or you can just try to load the folder with the tool by hitting the "Open Folder" button and selecting the mod folder.
Once you Loaded a mod the Mod Name and the Creator of the mod will be displayed.
Now all you need to do is select the Game Version and hit the "Rename" Button.
A message will show up if it was successful.
You can now close the tool and if you take a look at the mods folder the files will have the correct offset names and a "Install.txt" was created to use with the SSBU Mod Installer.
4. For Mod CreatorsBegin by putting your already compressed mod files in a empty folder like this.
The files should have the original file names to make it easier to assign offsets.
The files doesnt necessarily need the exact original file names. Its just to keep you organized to know what file exactly it is when a new game version is available.
So if you got a mod with full recolors for example you can give the files a prefix so you know which costume it is like:
Open the tool and switch to the "Mod Config" tab.
Hit "Open Folder" and select the folder you just put your mod files into.
You will see all the files listed in the tool.
To add a new game version, simply enter the version number in the text field and hit the "Add" button.
To add offsets to a file just select the game version of your choice and select the file you want to add offsets to.
Then just add the offset in the "Offset" textbox according to your selected game version.
The tool will save the info every time you edit the textbox, so you don't need to hit a save button every time.
If you added the offsets for all the game versions of your choice you can decide if you want to password protect your config so other users cant edit it.
To do so just enter a password and hit the Lock button.
That will disable the textboxes to make it unable to edit it.
If a password protected mod is loaded a message will tell you so.
To be able to edit the config again, you just need to enter the correct password and hit the "Unlock" button. A message will tell you if the password you entered is correct or not.
If you entered the password correctly it will unlock the textboxes and you can edit it again.
