Convert 8.6 version to 10.3

Post by Eccer » Mon Aug 05, 2019 1:16 pm

How do I install the alpha with all the mods I have on the 8.6 version? Just simply manually place them in the 10.3 version?

Welcome to the forums :)

I don't know if any mods became incompatible changing from 0.8.6 0.10.3. You'd have to check the individual topics for them. If they're compatible, you follow the same process: you move them from the mods folder of your 0.8.6 installation to the mod folder of your 0.10.3 installation.

Thank you, I will try to manually place them. Do you simply install 0.10.3 in the main Daggerfall folder again and overwrite 0.8.6 files? Will the save files stay put?

Daggerfall Unity will always go into a different folder than your Daggerfall files, and each new Daggerfall Unity installation requires an empty folder. You shouldn't install a new DFU onto an old one.

Thanks! I just made another folder with this version in it, and copied the mods over :) Working just fine.
