    Hello, I have SDT for a while now, and i have quite a number of bundles together, and its getting quite messy for me to sort stuff out as when i try something new i dont know into what loader i added it.
    I would love to maybe merge atleast Wewillie dialoges, and some others so i could further customize only one SDT without problems :D I think I saw a threat about some kind of program or script someone made a while ago, but I can not find it. Does it exist, or was only an idea?

    Let me see if I understand you correctly. Are you saying that you have multiple installations of SDT?

    Yeah, i downloaded each bundle seperatly (wewillie, f93, etc...) And i think i saw a thread about a year ago about how there is a way to put everything together...
    I have like 7 installations.

    See, this is why you shouldn't use packs to begin with. Here's what you should do:
    [list type=decimal]
    [*]Pick one of the installations as the primary installation.
    [*]Go to the <SDT>/Mods directories of all the other installations.
    [*]Move all the folders in each of those separate directories into the primary <SDT>/Mods directory. If any folders overlap:
    [list type=decimal]
    [*]Merge the folders. If there are file conflicts, do not overwrite them, but keep both.
    [*]Go into each merged folder.
    [list type=decimal]
    [*]Open all copies of Mods.txt.
    [*]Copy all the text into one Mods.txt.
    [*]Delete any duplicate lines.
    [*]Now delete the duplicate files.
    [/list]
    [/list]
    [*]Open all the <SDT>/Mods/Mods.txt files.
    [*]Copy all the the text in the non-primary Mods.txt files into the primary Mods.txt file.
    [*]Delete any lines that refer to the same folder.
    [*]Delete all the non-primary installations.
    [/list]

    That would be included in the "all folders" part. After all, it's not like adding dollar signs turns directories into hidden system directories.
