Default TDW's Option File Editor Viewer Installing It Correctly

Last updated 1st December 2018
This Tutorial is for installing TDW's Options File Editor Viewer (OFEV) anywhere on your system as a stand alone application only.

If a complete uninstall is done the stand alone the OFEV application is unaffected by this.
When the re-install is done just follow the instructions from Picture 10 to Picture 14.

The OFEV is included in TDW's NewUI's 7-4-2 and 7-5-0 base mods.

The Wolves of Steel (TWoS)
Sobers Mega Mod

The Basic way to make changes to the OFEV.
1. Disable the version of TDWs NewUIs_TDC_7_4_2 or 7_5_0 ByTheDarkWraith Main Mod that you are using from JSGME.

1.1. Disable all TWOS mods in JSGME.
