README

modetw (Modifications Manager for Empire: Total War) is a utility tool that helps you manage modifications (mods) in Empire: Total War for GNU/Linux.

Supported features
==================

* All mods will only have latest version
* Mod conflict check

Planned features
================

* Multiple mod versions

Commands
========

* -c --calibrate
calibrate the game files for mod installation
* -i --install [mod]
install a mod
* -u --uninstall [mod]
uninstall a mod
* -q --query [mod (regexpr)]
list mods in GitLab
* -l --list (installed mods)
list ~/.config/etw-lmm/manifest

A mod installation runs through the following steps:
1. The game packs that will be installed will be checked for any conflicts. If there is an existing mod installed that is already overtaking an original game pack, the installation cannot continue.
2. The original game packs will be renamed as "*.backup"
3. The modified game packs will be installed.
4. The mod's manifest will be added to the modetw/manifest directory

A mod uninstallation runs through the following steps:
1. The modified game packs are deleted.
2. The original game packs will have ".backup" removed.
3. The mod's manifest will be deleted.

The list of installed mods are located in the $HOME/.local/modetw/manifest.txt file (text file, listing installed mods with version).

XMLs of available mods will be packaged in a tar.xz in a FTP server in the same dir as the mods. $HOME/.local/modetw/db directory will hold all XMLs (including installed).
