Do you need to take that 5 minutes to explain where to place the files. Might as well get in to detail and create a separate, half an hour video, explaining where to place files, why not placing files in certain files, what color files you prefer, how big icon files can be, in what order you'd like the mod to be among such file, why you like the word file, different translations of the word file, a well detailed Mirriam Webstar definition of this word "file"... Have I left anything out, can we move on to the next step? xD lol

So then. I have several issues. I apparently have THREE different copies of the steam folder, all having steam apps in them. On both my drives. One on my main drive, and two on my second. My main game holding steam is on my second. And I can't actually delete any of them or change the default folder that holds my shit. I can't delete any of them because I'm too sp00ked to do so. And also I apparently have to fucking pay 10$ to get a nexus account? Even though I just want to get a fucking normal account. I honest to god need help. So uh, *HELP.*

I was completely lost at the installation process until watching this video, because I have never used a mod before. It's very helpful to find videos like this, especially ones that go into detail on what you need to do. Your voice is also very relaxing.

I know I might not get a response but will NMM and FOMM interfere with each other? Because I installed both of them since FOMM I use it for Fallout 3 and NMM for New Vegas. Say I started to add mods for Fallout 3 using NMM, that gets closed then switch to FOMM; well since I'm not using the programs at the same time since I'm working with certain mods, one that works for NMM, one for FOMM, the other for manual install...

I'm going to ask a noob question. Does it matter that I only have Skyrim SE? Which I downloaded from steam and for some reason a mod (UI I think) says my Skyrim isn't updated enough. Also my NMM is version 0.65.2 Problems?

Hello, I get a quick question. In the "Update/Patch_ModManagerMerge" file, when I opened the "package.mft", it said: "Name patch Authoritative Version 13 ModManager v0.59 alpha" So, why it is version 13 instead of version 12? Thank you!

6:01 no matter what I do it can't find my skyrim folder. I search for it and some how even though I have uninstalled and deleted all files associated with nexus mod manager and files attached to skyrim and both the main programs to including steam, when I reinstall steam and skyrin because its a steam game it all goes back to the exact same location which I did not tell it to do. I literally set it to the exact same locations you did and it didnt work. Is there not a way to reinstall it correctly unless i completely get ride of all of my saved games. I recently got the dlc and when I played my level 54 character after installing it said some of the content with in this file no longer exist and could be missing still wish to play? Is that the issue did it delete my followers? Oh even better it deleted alot of my saved games too. So If I try and go back to appoint before i got them I no longer have that save Fuck steam

Certain mods won't activate, they will load for a little while and then stop. There are some that does that but if you keep trying it will activate. Does anyonw knows why this happens ?

Do not ever use Nexus Manager or Nexus forum if Bethesda dot net has the mods. Why? 1. There are a lot of crap mods in Nexus (those that causes crashes or "CTDs"). 2. A lot of these mods are supported by the admins or moderators (because they want "new" content in their website). 3. How about bug reports and negative comments? They are either deleted by the mod authors or Nexus itself. 4. When you review a mod, all you see are mostly compliments and not THEIR TRUE NATURE. 5. Only a few famous modders can stand the heat and allow comments or bug reports and really fix them. My advice is use Bethesda.net (which is NOT DIFFICULT to use) for mods. Only use NMM only if you truly desire the mod and it is not on the official website. Nexus is a "police state" forum, that dislikes negative comments or "constructive criticisms". If you don't believe me, go and register an account, post your HONEST opinions for 3 months and come back to me. People complain Bethesda for being money hungry or whatever BUT THEY AT LEAST CARE ABOUT REPUTATIONS. Not Nexus. Those people ban accounts (if you are using MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS) so do not log in another person's account on PC other than yours (they will use that as a lame excuse to ban you). I saw Gopher's advice (whom I like him a lot) and join Nexus (for 3 months). That is my honest opinion of NMM.
