Kind of hoping there will eventually be some sort of tutorial on how to install and use this github version of nexus mod manager, I first learned how to install mods for fallout 4 through the plethora of youtube tutorials on how to use the nexus mod manager and the install paths/folders/etc. If i just download a new version of NMM from a new source, without knowing what files i have to change or where to download it to or if i have to get a new "unzip" program or whatever other headaches will be required just to be able to download mods again.
how do you find the installer on GitHub?????
You follow the link posted and quoted in here a couple dozen times: https://github.com/N...anager/releases
Then the installer would be the ".exe" file linked right at the top of each release.
And as for how it's installed, or what's required... How did you install your first version of the Nexus Mod Manager, when you hadn't used it ever before? It's still done exactly the same way. And every tutorial you read before still applies now, too... unless, of course, it was already out-of-date after a past release.
You just install the new version over your existing one (do not uninstall!) and all settings and mods should transfer, or at least I have yet to encounter a case where it didn't work that way... provided your version jump won't go past the profile-feature introduction phase of years ago, that is.
