Vortex hasnt died off yet? i gave up on it back in june. its essientally a more broken and unstable version of NMM. i like nexus, but damn you guys cant make a mod manager if your life depended on it lol
I don't know what version of Vortex you tried, but clearly not the one I and many others have been using very successfully for a long while now.
And NMM not being broken? Clearly you've never actually used it.
