How to use

TMU compatibility standards

These standards ARE optional for mods: however, compliance is highly suggested in order to make the most of Transcendence Universal Mod and Utilities Manager.

Directory standards

All mods with multiple files should be put in a sepparate directory, such as …/extensions/<modname>/… as this allows for proper deactivation of the mod. TMU otherwise may not properly deactivate mods that are dependent on it or other .xml files included in the mod if the mods' metadata fields are incorrect.

XML standards

TMU reads data within an excluded MetaData tag. <!– <MetaData> <TMU authordisp= “[author name](This is the displayed author name in the program)” authorUNID= “[author name on UNID database](This string should exactly match the author name on Perculi's UNID database)” version= “[version (string, so you can put 'v0' or '0.0.0.0' or however you name your mod versions)]” UNID= “0x####” (only the 4-digit prefix is used here. TMU will disable mods with incorrect UNID prefixes (like 0xGU56) as a safety feature to prevent Transcendence from crashing on load if it detects the erroneous UNID) image= “/extensions/<modname>/image.bmp” (this is optional. leave blank if no image is used. Max image size is 100×100: any larger and TMU will ignore it.) > <Dependancies> <!– this section is rather long, and is currently under construction –> </Dependancies> </TMU> </MetaData> –>
