Default How to install magnum opus mod? help

Ok i finally found the file to download the magnum opus mod which is Magnum_Opus_v0_0_1.7z
I hope that is the correct one
I also downloaded the generic mod enabler
I'm new and this forum has so much technical info it's hard to find anything
Can someone tell me where to put the file so the mod program will recognize it
thanks

Extract the mod enabler
Put the newly extracted Gme yellow icon into your main silent hunter 5 games folder .
Double click on the icon and it will say do you want a folder called MODS to be installed in the main game folder .
Put the mods folders in here .
Make sure you dont have double named folders , folder structure should be
Mod name\date\and so on .
Enable the mods.

the most common problem new players have is double folder issue

this is because mods are made jsgme ready to use but you need something to tell you about the mod and what it does so most modders put the mod into another folder along with a text file describing the mod and what it does called the "read me" file

so you unzip a mod called "yellow submarine" and see a folder named "yellow submarine" and inside of it you see a "read me" file and another "yellow submarine" folder.

this second folder is the actual mod folder and the one you put into jsgme

to avoid mistakes NEVER unzip mods into jsgme, unzip them to your documents folder then open them and see what file needs to be put in jsgme.

jsgme only works if the mod folder you place there contains a "data" folder next so it should read "yellow submarine/data" when you open it and not "yellow submarine/read me, yellow submarine/data""

Seriously, guys. A lot of these questions get asked over and over again. Always use the forum search first. The game has been out long enough that it is likely that someone has asked your question before.
