Merge Patches

Post by Jmsborland97 » Fri Sep 25, 2020 8:25 pm

Hi, I'm trying to make a Merge patch for a mod which renames a bunch of the weapons, and Weapon Retexture Project. obviously the mods are conflicting as they both edit the same weapons, but whenever I create a merge patch it doesn't seem to allow both mods to work together, it doesn't make any changes at all. The only conflict is the weapon names, and weapon models, it was my understanding that a Merge patch would fix this easily.

The merge patch function in xEdit doesn't work properly. You need to make your own patch by hand using 'The Method."

I had no idea Merge patches didn't work anymore, I usually just create my own compatibility patches, but it's so time consuming when you have loads of mods. It's a little late to be using "The Method" in my current playthrough with the mods I have, I barely have any conflicts anyway, but I'll be sure to use it on my next fresh install. Thank you
