    I am trying to find out what is needed to mod this game. I have no clue where to start. It's an SWF file, what am I supposed to do with that other than run it on IE? I would have thought there would be a sticky post having to do with how to get started at the start, if you have no idea what all these mods are or how to implement them. They all assume everyone is an expert, but we're not. I would like a short introductory guide to tell me what I need to do to use mods already here, and how to make my own mods, what can be modded, what can't be modded, what can/can't be done, etc.

    Is there already a post like that somewhere? if not, could someone take 10 minutes and create one? Thanks.

    No, ''they'' don't. You just somehow missed where it says ''Tutorials'', despite it being just below ''Help''. >.>

    Simple :)

    In some cases, mods require the Loader to work.

    Must be a joke.

    You know that just below the help forum section where you've posted this there is a section called "Tutorials and guides" where there are...you know...Tutorials and guides. Who could have guessed huh ?!

    And yet, looking in that very section produced NO SUCH THING I MENTIONED or else I would not have bothered your holinesses. I'm surprised and honored that you took time out of your busy day to deign to bestow your blistering holy insights upon me.

    Really, guys, the attitudes aren't necessary. If you can't be bothered to be helpful to newbies, make like the girl in the game and choke on it.

    You know how dumb I am? I know how to run the game: you click on it. That's all I know. (Ok, I can turn the computer on too.) "The Loader" is.... what, exactly? Where is this magical sticky post which explains all these stupid questions I have so I can get on the same page as everyone else?

    Synomymous' picture was very helpful. And his link to "the loader". And the links in his sig. Thank you. Why hasn't someone posted this information in a sticky "help the noobs" thread?

    Again, must be a joke.

    The only holiness here is you thinking the whole world has to move and make you tutorials while you sit patiently just because you can't be bothered to learn how to do simple things by yourself.

    decided to put together a more thorough video tutorial to loader imports

    http://www.mediafire.com/?sm8ea6sdobt5fpz

    it is quite lengthy, but it should cover all of the basics . . and a bit more.

    if this link breaks in the future, it probably means that i replaced it with another, and it will most likely be in my signature.
