    Okay, so, Im new to this community as well as the loader, and after exstensive trial and error, I am about ready to yank my hair out after trying to mod this game. Sure, call me a stupid noob, I really could care less at this point. Ive seen dozens of threats with models of hair and a long line of text. I hear of these mythical .swf files which I have found little to none of, and the save guide in the newest version of the loader is referencing files that, to my knowledge, dont even exist in my directory.

    I have a mods folder, and inside it are the following folders:

    $INIT$
    $OVER$
    $RESET$
    Example
    ModPageExample
    PositionExample
    RecordingExample
    settingsLoaderEx
    SWFOfficial
    ToggleHim
    Mods.txt

    Ill be honest. I have NO idea what any of these things signify, or what their purposes are. The save guide says there, "Arm/" and "Brow/" folders im supposed to be seeing? Because I dont. It mentions the txt file is important, which I can understand, but after all manner of dinking around in notepad, ive only succeeded in making my blood pressure go up a few notches. 99% of the time, I cant even get the Save window to appear in the game itself and its driving me nuts.

    All I want to know, in idiot speak, is just HOW I am supposed to install these different parts of mods and WHERE they belong. I read about imaginary folders and directories I cant find and I just need a clear answer.

    Where do hair files belong?

    What do I put in the .txt file?

    What on earth is a .swf file and how do I make one?

    Is loading a girl with the click of a button even a thing? Or do I have to load a zillion files each time?

    Sorry for coming off as snippy, its just frustrating when I cant get a clear answer for something undoubtedly simple.

    Hopefully this will help:

    1. Character folder.
    2. Depends, if it's a code then character folder.
    3. SWF files are extensions to SDT in the form of code and/or graphical mods. Made in Adobe Flash Pro.
    4. Load a character folder using the mod panel.

    Call me thick, but Im still at a loss. Ive seen many a post with just a hair file and a line of text provided. I understand the text is the different aspects of the girl's appearance, and the hair is hair (Duh) but where do I put these? I assume I just copypaste the code into a new line in the mods.txt file? Then what? I load the game and she isnt there, and half of the load buttons in the mod tab dont even let me load or save anything. Ive yet to make and new files using the .txt file either.

    Yes, indeed I did, and still nothing anyone says makes sense. Thanks for asking, so now ill just put this in as plain terms as I possibly can.

    1) Do girl folders go in the Mods/ folder?

    2) Do I make them manually after specifying the folder name in the txt file? Or do they show up once I load the game?

    3) Do the girl codes and hair (I could care less out BGs) go in said folder?

    Cheers sunshine.

    Code:
    Within each folder, we store files to be loaded with a character.
    The following files are loaded:
    
    Hair.png		Hair File.
    BG.png			Background.
    Char.lmod		Character package.
    Code.txt		Character Code.
    Dialogue.txt		Dialogue Script.
    Char.swf		An official SWF mod.
    Mod.swf			An unofficial SWF mod.
    BG.swf			An AS3 SWF file to place in the background.
    Position.txt		Custom body position (Generated by Modder.swf).
    Recording.txt		Custom mouse movement recording (Generated by Recorder.swf).
    Mods.txt		A list of swf mods.
    Thumb.png		The thumbnail to display when hovering over a character.
    HueData.txt		Stores data for hue shifts on loader mods.
    Settings.txt		A per-character version of the global Settings.txt
    
    Mods.txt follows this format:
    
    FILE_NAME.SWF
    SOME_OTHER_FILE.MOD
    A_random_name.lol
    
    Where each line is a new file, SWF or otherwise.
    Anything else unclear?

    More or less, but something still isnt right.

    As of now, I have my character folder set up in the Mods folder and her name set up in the Mods.txt folder. Her named folder has a code.txt containing her info and a hair.png file. It shows up in the Loader box in game, but nothing happens when i click on her name.

    Then ensure that the folder name and the colon separated name within the folder index are identical.

    Say your character was "Foo Bar" and your folder name was "Foobar".
    Your index would contain:

    Code:
    Foo Bar:Foobar

    If you're still having trouble, shoot me a PM.
