OpenXcom Extended not recognizing my full collection of mods?
« on: February 16, 2021, 07:41:47 pm »
I have a large variety of mods in Documents/OpenXcom/mods which simply aren't showing in the in-game Mods menu within OpenXcom Extended and I'm baffled as to why. Any ideas? Any help would be much appreciated, because I'd really like to play. Thank you <3

Most likely the mods are missing the metadata.yml file.

Check openxcom.log for more details.

ohhhh thank you! So, if a mod never had a metadata.yml file, is there nothing to be done?

You should at least change the name and id, but it should be straightforward.

No, you cannot copy it 1:1.

Each mod must have a unique ID, so you must change at least that.
