Fallout Mod Manager Fomm
Once FOMM is installed all you have to do to install a .FOMOD file is double click the .FOMOD file in its directory, go to package manager in FOMM and click the mods name on the list and the click activate.
Fallout Mod Manager Fomm
You will need to know the location of your Fallout 3 folder. The default location is C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Fallout 3. FOMM will be installed to the fomm folder in your Fallout 3 folder, and FOMOD files will be placed in the Fallout 3/fomm/mods folder.
A fomod file can be seen as an installer that can be used directly by FOMMs Package Manager, and can be recognized by the file extension .fomod. When you download a fomod, it will usually be in a compressed format, such as rar, zip or 7z. Open the archive by double clicking it. If it contains a .fomod file, extract it to your Fallout 3/fomm/mods folder, and open the Package Manager as shown above. If it comes with a readme, please open and read the readme before continuing as it may contain important information.
In the dialogue, browse to the archive and double click it. This will create a fomod, that is saved in your Fallout 3/fomm/mods folder. The mod can be activated by pressing the Activate button as above.
This error happens when you have installed Fallout 3 to the default location, and FOMM does not run with Administrator privileges. The problem is that Vista & W7 protects the contents of your Program Files folder from potentially dangerous interference, by designating the installed program to be the only program that is allowed to edit its folder. So, when FOMM tries to get the permissions needed, Windows assume that it is a virus. There are a number of fixes. The quick fix is to run FOMM as administrator: Rightclick fomm.exe and choose Run As Administrator in W7 (in Vista you may have to open properties). The better fix (particularly if you plan on using and making mods), is to uninstall FO3 and install it to somewhere outside of the Program Files folder, such as C:\Games\Fallout3. It will save you a lot of trouble in the future. A more in depth description of the problem can be found here.
When im try to activate my mode at package manager i cant, there a massage show cannot install mod,see script exception for more detail.I already install .net framework v4, but its still the same.please help me
A manual installation should work fine, but you loose the advantages of the package manager, i.e. easy install/uninstall/upgrade and custom install scripts. I have not played Fallout: New Vegas, so I have little knowledge on how FOMM for NV works, but I would take a look at the FOMM settings for NV, e.g. is it configured to use the correct paths, does it have write access to those paths? You could also ask at the nv nexus page, but it seems that no one is answering questions there. Also, you could ask at the release thread on the official forums, but I have no idea how active the community is.
i got fomm and installed mods and today when i was useing fomm under the tab thing that says web version it said error on most of my mods and fallout nv would start but chrash when it got to the game menu HELP SOS plz
Yeah, that is a pretty common problem. Check out the second last paragraph in the post:[quote]This error happens when you have installed Fallout 3 to the default location, and FOMM does not run with Administrator privileges.

Additionally, both FOMM and NMM create a folder where they store a copy of the zipped mod that you loaded with the plugin manager. In my venerable version of NNM (0.53.7). you can see the path to the mod location by pressing Settings and selecting the tab that has the name of the game you are looking for. If you are using FOMM, you can try open the folder of the game or where you installed FOMM and search for zip files.
So, to answer your question: Deleting files from your desktop will not cause the mod to go missing from your game, and it should be possible to uninstall and reinstall from the package manager. I usually copy the mods to a hard drive and delete the downloaded files partly to make sure that I can always nuke my installation and start over, partly because some mods require manual modifications before loading them into FOMM/NMM and I might want to use other options next time.
Can you add multiple archives in one sitting instead of one at a time via the package manager? i have had some game breaking issues that have required clean uninstalls and re-installs and am sick of adding 200 or so mods one at a time via its package manager.
FOMM download offers all the new features available for both games. In addition to this, the folders used by FOMM to store the installed info and FOMods are completely configurable. This lets you place the files in any disk on the Windows PC. The modification manager is easy to use, simple, and powerful.
The powerful modification manager can upgrade mods without reactivating them or changing the mods that need to be overwritten. FOMM also supports mod reactivation, which can be changed with installation options without having to reinstall the specific mod.
Fallout Mod Manager replaces all the existing FOMM installations. Installations for Fallout 3 are left intact, just in case you want to play the older game. After installing the modification manager, you can still manually uninstall the older versions of the utility software.
When the installer finishes it will ask if you would like it to make a FOMOD; TTW is much easier to install with a mod manager - see below for recommendations. If you would rather do a manual install (not recommended) see the instructions in the next section.
Fomm.exe problems are generally seen during FOMM program launch, and typically caused by executable file corruption, or in some cases if the file has been accidentally or maliciously removed by malware. Obtaining a new, uninfected copy of your EXE file will usually resolve the problem. In addition, if your fomm.exe error was due to a removed malware infection, we recommend running a registry scan to clean up any invalid file path references created by the malicious program.
Please take caution in ensuring the file is placed in the correct file directory. Following these instructions carefully should resolve your fomm.exe error, but we recommend running a brief check. To confim it's resolved, try starting up FOMM to see if the error can be triggered.
These EXE error messages can appear during program installation, while a fomm.exe-related software program (eg. FOMM) is running, during Windows startup or shutdown, or even during the installation of the Windows operating system. Documenting fomm.exe problem occasions in FOMM is key to determine cause of the FOMM problems, and reporting them to Fallout Mod Manager.
An FOMOD file is a game file that contains modifications to be installed for a game. These files are installed by mod programs such as Fallout mod manager (FOMM) and Nexus Mod Manager (NMM). The modifications in .fomod files can be related to any aspect of the game, and are published by players or community fans of the game. Mods in the form of FOMOD can extend the life of a game by changing including small changes or complete overhaul to the game.
Game file used by Fallout mod programs such as Fallout mod manager (FOMM) and Nexus Mod Manager (NMM); contains files that, when installed, change game content for Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas; used for applying custom mods developed by game community members.
And another very long time without updates. My computer failed on me shortly after christmas, which wasn't too much of an annoyance since it was getting a bit old and I was intending to replace it soon anyway, and the failure gave me an excuse to get it over with. The problem came because of a slight difference in the behaviour of windows explorer between win xp and win 7 which led to me deleting one of my backup folders instead of copying it. I lost all my scripts for building and publishing file releases and webpages, and hadn't got around to recreating them until now. (That was also the reason why fomm and sfall's check for update options haven't been picking up on the new versions until yesterday; I wasn't able to upload the version data files.) The only particularly annoying thing I lost was some better documentation I was writing for sfall; I'd actually gone through all the code and made a list of exatly what it was capable of doing, and how to use everything. :(
In release news, sfall is up to 2.2. The (rubbish*) multiplayer mode is now functional and the client is included, there's control over premade characters, (including the ability to add more than 3 options,) and the usual batch of new script functions and hook scripts. fomm has also been updated to 0.10.3, which improves archive invalidation, the save game list and the bsa browser.
