Mod Organizer Hide Feature



What exactly does this right-click feature do?

I originally started using it in the conflicts tab as a "ty for notifying me about this conflict, it's intended, stop notifying me now" feature. As in, I assumed it wouldn't change the files just not show them as conflicts anymore.

I was doing all of this while listening to the MO tutorial vids in the background and well... a minute or two later I heard Deathneko say something like 'I think the hide feature makes the files invisible to MO'. Needless to say, I facedesked instantaneously.


I did some perusal and found some of the files I previously hid renamed to .mohidden, which can apparently be unhidden just as easily.


So if I understand the feature correctly, hiding a file renames it as .mohidden, which breaks that file until unhidden? And then there's no problem right?


:New user of MO, loving every bit of it <3

So I have Mod A and Mod B, and I have Mod A ahead of Mod B when looking at them using the priority column. This means that any files that Mod A and B share, MO will use the ones from Mod B, because it is last. If I want some of the files from Mod A that Mod B overwrites then I can hide those files from Mod B so that MO sees only the files from Mod A. Also, you can hide erroneous files that get installed or are not needed.

Wonderful, Thanks!


Tannin or anyone else we have to thank for this splendid MO might want to think about adding a filter in the data tab for all .mohidden files to look at only what you've hidden.


I'm content with using the method of doing a file search in my MO mod folder in explorer for ".mohidden" though, just an idea to be tossed about. Not sure if there's a suggestions thread or what have you.

I want to un-hide multiple files and it's easiest to just find them in explorer with a file search.


What would manually removing the ".mohidden" suffix extension do? I'm just guessing it won't be that easy. =|
