Mod Organizer 2 Fixed Categories

Post by frootzcat » Tue Nov 27, 2018 9:41 pm

I was being driven nuts by the incorrect categories in MO2, and went ahead and made a fixed categories.dat file.
Mine currently includes ALL games supported by MO2: Fallout 3, Fallout 4, Fallout: New Vegas, Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Skyrim: Special Edition.

I can't guarantee it'll work perfect for you, but it's worth a shot, right?

You guys are welcome to host this on Nexus / update and edit it on my behalf. Due to continuing health problems, I cannot always maintain my mods.

Do not try to use the .txt file as-is. They must be renamed categories.dat to work.

To install...
BACK UP YOUR DEFAULT if you want to.
IF YOU HAVE MO2 PORTABLE - Drop it in the main MO2 folder.
IF YOU HAVE PROFILES - In a new window in your OS, type %appdata%, go back ONE directory and look in Local/Mod Organizer 2 and drop it in the main folder of your chosen profile. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)

To get rid of this file, merely delete category.dat.

Tools Used: The Alphabetizer, WordPad.
