Troubles installing Darnified UI - Fixed

Recommended Posts

So I had a lot of trouble installing the initial Darnified UI.  Primarily because in following your instructions, I had a window popup that told me the file was corrupt.  This window popup is incorrect.  Follow the instructions as laid out to the letter, and ignore the windows popup, and everything will work

Some people also have an issue with a popup that won't go away in game when you hit the esc key.  This is caused by DarnUI Support for FWE

in the DarnUI Support for FWE, open menu, there is an options folder with a single file: start_menu.xml.  It is responsible for the popup that you can't get rid of in the main menu.  Hiding it or deleting it fixes the issue.

This is a further Edit to the above.  Hiding or deleting does fix the problem, but causes other problems down the road.  ie not being able to  load a game into an exterior cell.  So the real fix in all of this is to redownload and reinstall DarnUI Support for FWE.  I am guessing that the xml file in question was corrupt and reinstalling will fix it.  this corrects both issue's.

Just for clarification, is the original popup saying the file is corrupt correct?

It is not.  If you ignore the popup and follow the directions as specified it works.  I put a note about it in the directions on the page.

 

There are multiple copies of the start_menu.xml in the ui section.  All the Jip files have them as well as Darn, but they should be overwritten by the last one in DarnUI Support for FWE.  At least that is my understanding.

Thanks. I don't remember seeing that issue when I originally installed the guide years ago, but I'm reconsidering installing it fresh so I'll keep this in mind.

By all means take a look at it.  I am having some wierd issues with the ui mods, and I really wouldn't be surprised if one of them is corrupt.  And when I say wierd issues, i don't mean in game, but in reinstalling some of the ui mods.  They act like they are still open and won't allow me to change the name of them or uninstall them..  I also noticed that they ended up on my C: drive in the appdata folder/local/whatever and sometimes with the zip file i was trying to install..  Like i said weird.  I've had a computer for 30 years, only been modding for 3, but I don't ever remember anything acting funky like this.

Have fun.

Well I can now confirm that everything is fine with darn.  It works as it is supposed to and any troubles are unrelated.

      Lucas Simms himself is missing his arms. I can see his gloves but his actual arms are invisible. I can't even begin to imagine what the fluff could be causing that. I did have issues with .32 and Mausers having big red exclamation marks but that's because it REQUIRES (listed in mod guide as optional) the individual weapon remakes. 

      Springvale Sewers, a AWOP location crashes consistently when I try to enter it.

      Is there a way to make GaryBash work with MO in Fallout 3? I tried to use it as executable, but MO wouldn't recognized the Wrye launcher as such. It surprised me, because MO had no problem recognizing the Wrye Bash launcher for Oblivion, but I don't have the same luck with Wrye Flash. When I browse the Moppy folder to try to find the Binary, Wrye Bash Debug is the only application the MO can see.

      MO works with Fallout3 and FONV (Fallout New Vegas). I have used it successfully with FONV. There are however a few mods which are bit more difficult to install. Mods like darnified UI, MCM, Unified Hud. These mods need to see the XXX_menu.xml files installed by other mods to work properly. The fundamental concept of MO (Mod Organizer) is mod isolation. In the current situation with MO when installing those kind of mods can't find those xml files. There are however workarounds for this. Those are described in the Nexus forum (search for fake or XML). It is also discussed here in this forum. An explanation how to use FOMM can be found here.
