So I've got a few mods that are outdated and I've decided to try updating them. Namely Dialogue Actions, Animtools and More Clothing. It's gonna be a task and a half to update them while keeping similar settings to what I currently have. I'm starting with Dialogue Actions since a few things broke when updating other mods. I have the zip for it and I discovered the subfolders are very different from the version I'm currently using. It's got folders for audio and graphics which is new to me.

My question is, do I need those new folders to run the updated version or can I just copy the mod itself to replace my old version? If I do need the new folders, where do I put them? I'm asking about this version of Dialogue Actions. Do I need all the extra files and folders or just the mod itself? Thanks in advance for any info.

You need the folders to have access to those default assets and features, they are not necessary though, as the system is modular, though if you do removed the assets you might have to remove their references in the default settings .txt

you should be safe in starting by replacing Dialogue Actions, Animtools and More Clothing with their default setups by copying them to a copy of your loader, then adding your settings to the respective settings .txt

If you follow though and actaully test this, feel free to reply to this thread with specific questions.

I didn't think about testing in a copy of my loader, tho that should've been the first thing to think of. With as much as those mods change it would be very important to have a backup of my main build. I don't see a settings.txt for Dialogue Actions tho.

My main concern in this thread is the new folders in the Dialogue Actions zip. Namely: audio, graphics, obj and src. Bin appears to contain the mod itself. Do I need to put those 4 folders somewhere or can I ignore them?

I've thumbed through the documentation for the new version of Animtools and with a little tweaking I can get my old positions back to where I can use them. I haven't looked through the new More Clothing yet, tho I have seen there are new and updated clothes added to it. I've customized my current version so much it'll take a while to get everything back in order in the new version.

Until I'm told about the new folders in DA I'm gonna start with More Clothing. It seems to be the easiest to update. Just a copy/paste of my clothes and settings. I may try experimenting with DA tho, see if anything breaks without the new folders.

i just include the source with my mods, you only need the compiled SDTDialogueActions.swf that sits in the bin folder (this is a flashdevelop project, which is why it has a lot of extra junk with it, instead of the as3compile i usually use)
