The application copies the files from the folder structure into the game folder structure when a mod is enabled. If you are working on scenarios or, like me, a campaign with multiple scenarios and briefings and pzloc files edit the files in the folder where they are copied from and not in the game folders. I made a heap of changes to briefing and other files for my campaign in the normal data\briefing folder. Then I disabled the campaign mod and re-enabled it - all the old, unedited files overwrote the new, edited files. I was not a happy chappy.

I'm would like to install "Mannocks Campaign Map Pack" using JSGME. After unzipping Mannocks Map Pack, two folders are created "Briefings" and "Data". Do I now create a new sub-folder "Mannocks Campaign Map" (as an example) in JSGME's "MODS" folder? If yes, should I drag-and-drop Mannocks "Data" folder into "MODS/Mannocks Campaign Map"? And should I then drag-and-drop Mannocks "Briefings" into "MODS/Mannocks Campaign Map/Data"?
Do I need to copy all other campaign missions "pzbrf", "pzscn", "campaign.pzdat" & "equipment.pzeqp" from the Panzer Corp folder into the "MODS/Mannocks" folder? Thanks in advance. I'm new to modding and I don't want to mess up the mod installation. Thanks again.

I, too, have several mods going on and the GME handles them all very well. Only problem I had was with saves. Had to make sure I used the description portion of the Save File so I could tell the campaigns apart and not have the wrong mod loaded. Not the GME's fault, just mine for having so many concurrent campaigns going on.
