Copying/Inheriting/Preserving mod order but not the enable state


I know there is a way of doing this because ive done it before, at the direction of someone in the discord.. probably a year or so ago. It did not involve any manual tweaking of the modlist.txt, as far as i recall. 


The idea is simple, I'd like the order of all my mods to be the same between profiles, but only differ in which ones are active. I dont remember how this was accomplished before.. i dont think it was an explicit feature (although maybe it is?), but if memory serves me right, it was a clever way of achieving this result without having to actually edit the modlist.txt (i.e. removing the + and - before each mod name)


Ive tried asking in the discord but it seems that whoever is currently active on there or has happened to read my message, they're not sure how it's done. So, here's to hoping someone on here will know. Thanks

There is not an automated way to do this in Mod Organizer. This can be accomplished, sort of, with multiple profiles though and some work.


If you have one profile set up the way you want it, all you need do is go into the profile manager and make copies of that first profile. You then can edit the profiles to your liking. Adding a mod into an active profile will not be activated in any other profile, it will be in the left pane at the bottom of the list. If you delete a mod in any profile it will be gone from all profiles. This is where you must deactivate mods only.


If you have multiple profiles set up already and you want to start over, you have to pick one of them to be your main profile and then copy loadorder.txt, modlist.txt and plugins.txt to each of the other profiles which will sync them to the original. This will give you a copy of the original in each of the other profiles. You can then modify each profile as you wish.

      1. I've been using MO 2 for years for 3 of my games, Skyrim, Skyrim SE and FA4.  No problems and yesterday  I know I did something wrong because the top line of items is missing and Skyrim SE is the only game I can access.  But I don't know what I did or how to fix it.  I've  uninstalled and reinstalled with no change.   Hoping someone has done this and can explain how to fix it.

      Hey all.
      Sorry if this has been asked but I couldn't find anything.
      I got a Steam Deck recently and was in the process of setting Skyrim SE up with mods.
      Right now it actually works, however I can't seem to figure out how to launch Skyrim SE Launcher? I need to change settings so it runs better.
      When I open Skyrim from Steam, or use bottles to run Skyrim SE Launcher, it launches MO2. From there I have to select SKSE and hit run and it launches.
      If I click the drop down and select Skyrim Special Edition Launcher, it says an instance of mod organizer is already running.
      Any ideas on how I can get around this to launch the launcher so I can change my settings?
      It seems there is _SkrimLauncher.exe file that must of been automatically created by MO2, however when I run that with Bottles, and make changes, it doesn't seem to have the changes when I run SKSE.
      Thanks for any help!

      I have always used Wrye with MO but now on a fresh install of everything(Skyrim SE) when I try to rebuild the Bashed Patch I get an error saying "file not found, it may have been moved, edited or deleted. I have no idea what that means since it doesn't even tell me what file is supposedly missing. Any ideas as to whats going on here?
