Intro

Edit

Whereas OBMM makes use of OMODs, Wrye Bash’s mod installer, BAIN, installs mods from 7z, RAR and ZIP archives. One of many major options of BAIN is inherent assist of prioritized set up. Not is there a have to fully uninstall large mods equivalent to QTP when determine that it has been incorrectly put in on prime of the UOP; as an alternative, by taking advantag of it set up patdching features: ‘Anneal’ and ‘Set up Lacking’. For instance, if the UOP is moved after QTP3 after beforehand putting in the 2 mods within the mistaken order, the calling the anneal operate on both packages could have BAIN right the set up config, by putting in information from the UOP package deal that ought to overwrite QTP3 (given the now right package deal order.)

One other nice function of this mod utility is its wonderful battle detector. Have you ever ever put in a number of beauty mods and later questioned which model of which physique texture was put in? With BAIN, it’s doable to see each put in and implicit (amongst uninistalled packages) conflicts. The person has complete management over which model of a file, present in a number of mods, is put in final (which would be the model seen within the sport.) The one mods you need to completely keep away from putting in with BAIN are shader packages. It’s best to have a backup of the unique shaders folder anyway (as they appear to be a very susceptible group of information) however OBMM is the utility to make use of to put in shader editors. BAIN is the simpler possibility in each different class.

Please, strive alt3rn1ty’s Wrye Bash Pictorial Information for a extra complete overview of utilizing Bash and BAIN.

First Steps

Edit

  • Click on on the Mods tab in Wrye Bash to initialize BAIN.
  • Put some mods (in compressed archives or folders) within the Bash Installers folder
  • Proper-click on the Mods tab (Wrye Bash) and select one of many refresh choices to see the newly put in packages

Some Details

Edit

  • BAIN installs 7-zip, RAR and ZIP archives.
  • BAIN doesn’t set up BATs, DLLs, EXEs or non-default folders (with a number of exceptions)
  • BAIN doesn’t deal with shader putting in or modifying (but?)

Set up

Edit

The easy a part of utilizing BAIN

  • Solely checked plugins are put in
  • If a package deal has subpackages that comprise plugins, they are going to seem within the plugins listing (checked by default.)
  • Proper-click on an archive and select “install” to put in it.
  • If you happen to uncheck a plugin, right-click on the archive and select “anneal” to uninstall the plugin.
  • To uninstall an archive, right-click on the archive and select “uninstall.”
  • To put in a further plugin, verify it, then right-click on the archive and select “install missing.”
  • If you happen to change the set up precedence of a plugin, altering which information ought to override, right-click on the plugin and select “anneal” in order that the information information are up to date for the change in set up precedence.
  • Subpackages are put in numerically after which alphabetically (0 to 9 then A to Z). For instance:

a package deal with subpackages 0, 15, C, 7 and A: is put in within the order 0 > 7 > 15 > A > C (with the contents of C put in final, getting the ultimate overrides.)

Group

Edit

Prioritized set up is likely one of the best options of this installer. You could possibly even set up your entire setup without delay (which is what this information goals that will help you do, initially.) To ensure that that to go properly, it is advisable to first plan your setup. After determining which mods to make use of, determining the set up order is the subsequent step. The strategy of group beneath goals for the least variety of teams whereas dealing with exceptions. Don’t confuse this with load order. They’ll differ tremendously. Set up order pertains to mods; load order pertains to plugins.

Details

Edit

  • Packages newly added to the Bash Installers folder are positioned above the “Last” marker by BAIN.
  • Transfer technique newly-added-awesomeness: Drop-N-Drag
  • Transfer technique #1: Proper-click on a package deal or a particular group of packages and select “move to…”
  • Transfer technique #2: Proper-click on a package deal or a particular group of packages and use ctrl+as much as transfer the plugin(s) up or ctrl+down to maneuver the plugin(s) down.

Ideas (Naming Conventions)

Edit

  • No Model Numbers: The date modified column and ReadMes are sufficient to check with updates, however you need to use the “comments” body to notice the model. Why? BAIN acknowledged packages by their names, so it’s best to overwrite present packages if you obtain updates with a purpose to keep away from reorganizing all the time.
  • Not Re-Naming Free Add-on Updates: These are up to date too incessantly (closing updates will be merged onto the unique mod.)
  • Rename package deal to mod’s identify with file ID on the finish: BAIN has ‘Open @TESNexus’ and ‘Open @TESAlliance’ features, If you happen to right-click on a package deal with what seems to be like legitimate ID on the finish, BAIN will attempt to open the web page with ID on the related web site. (Invalid IDs will trigger it to open up a random web page from the positioning or the “missing page” error.)

Extra Ideas

Edit

  • To publish your package deal listing: Proper-click on the ‘package deal’ tab and select ‘Checklist packages’ (in case it is advisable to publish it for checking)

Packages

Edit

Wrye Bash treats all archives and folders as packages. In BAIN, there are two sorts of packages, easy and BAIN-ready. (There are literally three, when you rely invalid packages, those indicated by grey verify bins.) Easy packages are these during which the highest stage both accommodates a one folder (normally named “Data” or the mod’s identify) a number of top-level information file folders (i.e., textures, meshes, and so forth.) BAIN-ready packages comprise subfolders (referred to as subpackages) the place every qualifies as a easy package deal by itself. All information information inside a package deal need to be on the identical stage to be a legitimate package deal, that means that your complete archive has to replicate the put in construction of a mod OR the archive accommodates ONE folder that meets that requirement OR the archive solely accommodates folders, every of which meets that requirement individually.>> notes: 1) BAIN ignores prime stage folder if the folder matches the archive’s identify 2) BAIN skips subpackages that begin with “==”

Easy Packages

Edit

  • “data”
  • ESPs, ESMs
  • “meshes”
  • “textures”
  • … (different folders at prime stage of information folder, together with mod-added folders equivalent to “_tejon”)

BAIN-Prepared Packages

  • diamond – venture package deal (folder)
  • “X” – unhealthy package deal (nonetheless being construct/downloaded or corrupt)
  • “+” – put in
  • grey – invalid (not in BAIN acknowledged format)
  • mild grey – uninstalled BAIN package deal
  • white – uninstalled easy packages
  • yellow – mismatched information (some information inside the package deal differ from information within the information folder) doesn’t point out a foul factor essentially, anticipated if information overlap with one other package deal, verify “conflicts” part of package deal to see which packages overlap above and beneath
  • pink – lacking information (some or all information contained within the package deal usually are not within the information folder)
  • inexperienced – all information match (precise copies of all information contained within the package deal are within the information folder)
  • orange – plugins within the information folder don’t match these within the package deal (which is the case you probably have one other mod put in with larger precedence override it)

Highlighting

Edit

  • gray – BAIN skipped some information, verify package deal “skipped” part to see which information have been skipped
  • darker gray – chosen package deal(s)
  • yellow/orange – soiled set up: accommodates sound information however no matching plugin is put in or put in information and archive information don’t match (i.e., after an replace)

Examples

Streamline

Edit

Obtain@TESNexus

Preliminary Analysis

Edit

This model of Streamline must be repackaged 1) as a result of it’s an executable and a pair of) as a result of it presents two set up configurations, utilizing the default plugin or utilizing the debug model. Due to this fact, it needs to be made right into a BAIN-Prepared package deal.>> notes: There’s a BAIN-Prepared model of this mod out there. See the utilities part of Downloading Mods for the hyperlink.

  • Core: every part <– The whole lot must be put in, which is why “core” is used right here.
  • Debug: debug model of plugin

Conversion

Edit

  1. Extract the 2 archives (location doesn’t matter)
  2. Run the three.1 EXE
  3. Run the three.1 patch EXE
  4. Create a folder “Streamline-10400” within the Bash Installers folder
  5. Create two folders within it: “Core” and “Debug”.
  6. Go to the Information folder.
  7. Choose the folder “Streamline”, Streamline.esp and the Streamline docs (a .MHT file and some .TXT file within the Docs folder.)
  8. Transfer them to the “Streamline-10400Core” folder within the Bash Installers folder
  9. In “Streamline-10400CoreStreamlineESPs” folder, copy the debug model of Streamline.esp.
  10. Place the copy within the Debug folder on the prime stage of the package deal, and delete that ESPs subfolder within the Core subpackage.
  11. Choose all the contents of Streamline-10400, right-click and (7-zip) add them to “Streamline-10400.7z.”>> notes: 1) when you choose a number of objects, 7-zip’s add to “<archive name>.7z” is the folder’s identify 2) if this new archive shares the very same identify because the previous archive, if you place it within the Bash Installers folder and overwrite the previous archive, you’ll not need to reposition it in BAIN.
  12. Transfer newly created archive up into Bash Installers folder.
  13. Delete the leftover “Streamline-10400” folder, the EXEs and the previous SL archives

End result (BAIN-Prepared package deal)

Edit

  • Core <– This subpackage should at all times be checked, therefore the label “Core”.
  • Debug <– The plugin on this subpackage will overwrite Core’s Streamline.esp when checked.

Harvest Flora

Edit

Obtain@TESNexus

Preliminary Analysis

Edit

BAIN exhibits this package deal with a darkish grey verify field, which signifies that it’s invalid. This package deal is invalid as a result of the information within the “NoMushroomStalks” folder are at a decrease stage than the ESPs. It accommodates a “Textures” folder which should be put in on the identical stage because the ESPs. This must be repackaged such that the ESPs are on the identical stage. Because the no mushroom stalks are non-compulsory. They need to nonetheless not be put in with the ESPs, so the ESPs should be put into their very own folder. The identical goes for the ReadMe There are two doable configurations: the principle set up and putting in the “no mushroom stalks” possibility. The no mushrooms stalks half is simply an possibility, requiring the principle set up. Due to this fact, it needs to be made an non-compulsory folder that’s secondary to (needs to be loaded after) the core information. Conclusion: This needs to be a multi-configuration BAIN package deal. Additionally, the OMOD conversion information will not be needed, so it might be deleted or made invisible by including “–” to the entrance of the folder.

  • Core: ESPs
  • Choices: NoMushroomStalks folder
  • Docs: Readmes
  • OMOD conversion information folder (might be deleted)

Conversion

Edit

  1. Create folders: 00 Core Information, 00 Docs
  2. Transfer “Core” objects into “00 Core Files”
  3. Transfer ReadMes into “00 Docs”
  4. Rename “NoMushroomStalks” “01 NoMushroomStalks”
  5. Delete OMOD conversion information
  6. Choose all, right-click and (7-zip) add them to “Harvest Flora-2037.7z.”>> notes: 1) when you choose a number of objects, 7-zip’s add to “<archive name>.7z” is the folder’s identify 2) if this new archive shares the very same identify because the previous archive, if you place it within the Bash Installers folder and overwrite the previous archive, you’ll not need to reposition it in BAIN.
  7. Transfer newly created archive as much as Bash Installers folder
  8. Delete previous ZIP file and the folder

End result (BAIN-Prepared package deal)

Edit

Right here, the principle information are put in first, as ensured by the “00” prefix, and the NoMushroomStalks possibility is put in after as a result of 01 is larger than 00.

  • 00 Core Information
  • 00 Docs
  • 01 NoMushroomStalks

Visually Enchanted Customizer Mounted

Edit

Obtain@TESNexus

Preliminary Analysis

Edit

This package deal is highlighted in gray within the Installers tab…It has ESPs on the prime stage and in a subfolder. These within the subfolder are being skipped by BAIN as a result of ESPs need to be on the prime stage to really be put in. The plugins within the subfolder overlap with a few of these on the prime stage…The plugins that modify the identical visible impact can’t be used collectively so that is extra of an “OR” package deal, a multi-mod package deal. To have essentially the most flexibility, the ESPs can’t simply be positioned right into a “defaults” set and a “recolored” set, for instance. Doing that, it might not be doable to combine default and recolored shaders of various varieties. Due to this fact, it might be finest if every plugin had its personal folder denoting its sort and factor. The images folder is cluttering, so it might be made invisible with “–” appended to the entrance of the folder.

Conversion

Edit

  1. Create 8 new folders, one for every of the unique plugins, unfastened on the prime stage. For instance:

for Visually Enchanted Hearth 1.esp create the folder “Original – Fire 1”

  1. Put the plugins of their corresponding folders
  2. Create 5 new folders for every of the recolored shaders plugins after which rename the “recolored shaders” folder for the sixth recolored shader plugin.

For instance, for recolored shadersVisually Enchanted Hearth 1.espyou would create the folder “Recolored – Fire 1”

  1. Put the recolored shaders plugins of their corresponding folders
  2. Create a folder “–Pictures” (this folder is not going to present in BAIN as a result of it’s prefixed with “–“)
  3. Place all the photos, JPGs, in to the images folder
  4. Choose all the folders and the ReadMe and (7-zip) add to “Visually Enchanted Customizer Fixed-8490.7z”

End result (BAIN-Prepared package deal)

Edit

  • Subpackages akin to the identify of every plugin
  • –Footage (Invisible to BAIN)>> notes: 1) This packaged will be configured to put in any mixture of the totally different shaders for every parts 2) and the images is not going to litter up the Docs folder
