Thanks to Chase_UC and v^3 for testing :)

For the next version i want to completely drop the current UI system. (It's been the source of some bugs, and is too much work to maintain).
Also look into 'guard' features, like the current admin menu,
and a configurable menu system (custom commands when clicking on users)

Thanks to `10se1ucgo` for the bugreport on mumble, and confirming the fix.

I'm trying to use this, but i can't figure out where I place the mods to use them. I've tried putting them in the modloader folder, in the kv6 folder, aos folder, but nothing is working. when I look at the mod section after pressing insert in aos, I only see "kv6", but clicking it doesn't do anything

make a folder called whatever you want (let's assume you're making a WWII pack). place this folder called WWII in the Modloader folder.
inside this folder make the corresponding folders you need (eg. kv6, png, wav). now you have these folders inside the WWII folder.
next place your mods into the child folders of your WWII (eg. semi.kv6 inside WWII > kv6). do not change them from their default names or they will not work.
now when you're in game, hit insert and switch between mods on the tablist.

Argh this 1.50 version is stupid, I upgraded it today, and went on AoS to play, then AoS crashed and it said "AoS Crashed, Send for analyzes", why? Blue_Normal

because i can't smell what is wrong from here,
thats why you need to send me the file.

and if you think modloader is stupid, dont use it, i won't lose any sleep over it.

ps: disable mumble if you use that for now,
or download 1.51 with the mumble fix

I know learn_more has already replied, but I just had to point out how stupid it was to say that it crashes and tells you to send the dump file for analysis, then ask what's wrong without sending the file. The whole point of the analysis is to find out why it happened.

there are 2 versions of 0.75, someone decided it was a good idea to do a fix without bumping the version number,
currently modloader only works on the fixed version.

Okay, I use the Build and Shoot launcher, so I can play 0.76 Green_normal

but because I'm using the launcher, the game files are in the AppData folder, which is only accessible by searching %appdata% in the start menu. so I cant find the files via the installer.
help me. Green_Crying

%appdata% isnt a magical spell from the start menu, that path always exists and can be opened from everywhere.
