Default Need help with modding issues EPIC MOD

Hello so i just downloaded epic mod and decided i wanted to change one of the vessels maximum depth in the molder destination . i changed the OSCAR 2 depth from 2000 to 2500 (ive done this before with no issue) suddenly all my epic mod missions are gone except 1968 and if i try to play 68 campaign everything is jumbled up .
i dont get it ive managed to get into the vessel and weapons files and change things with no issues for the last month. suddenly one change and the game goes ape**** and unplayable.
even when i revert to original specs for the vessel it wont let me play the game properly at all .
help me

Default try this

the mods manager keep backup files so if you switching to a new version of a mod lets say

Cold Waters Epic Mod 2.25 (03.11.20)

to

Cold Waters Epic Mod 2.25 (04.11.20)


or if you have installed then removed loads of mod files i find it helps to clean out the saved backup files now and a gain


to do this first you need to enable show hidden files on windows so :


Select the Start button, then select Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization. Select Folder Options, then select the View tab. Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then select OK.

then go to the mods folder and look for 3 files inside the mods folder called :


JSGME

!INSTLOGS

!BACKUP



deleting these in effect makes the mod manager forget all saved data so its like new again

if you not sure you want to delete them just copy the files out rather then deleting em


remember after this you will need to re enable your mods and in the order you prefer


i found as i am constantly enabling and disabling mods as im making stuff all the time

that the mod manager would glitch up textures or files now and a gain

so this method wipes it clean so its not got like a a thousand backup files saved in its memory


hope this helps some of you out in making mods run smoother

Probably you have problem with file encoding. I suggest usinig Notepad++ for modding - it will keep UTF-8 encoding while standard Notepad will change it to ANSI upon saving.

Crash happens due to russian characters, so either get yourself a Notepad++ (or similar) or change Designation to SSGN.
