Menu Mod Data (Default)


Best Answer Odylarian , 29 June 2020 - 08:52 PM

What is the mod "Witcher 3 Menu Mod" that appears in my mod section in Vortex.  I don't remember installing a mod by that name and its not on Nexus Mods.  When I look in my mod folder it is not there, yet it appears in my mod section in Vortex.  The only place it is on my HD is in my Staging Folder.  When I open the mod folder the only files in there are "Input.settings" and "user.settings".  I happened to notice, when I uninstall or install a mod a message comes up about this mod and asks me whether I wanna "Use Newer file", "Save", or "Revert".

Another reason I am curious about this mod is because my key binding menu in the game is blank and I know the key binding are in the "input.settings" file.  So I am wondering if this mod is interfering with my key bindings.

Update:  This is no longer an issue.  I figured it out.  The Witcher 3 Menu Mod is a mod created by the Extension.  I had just not seen it before.  Must be pretty new.

what did you figure out? i'm having the same problem, as the game doesn't read the symlink properly for the input.settings file, therefore my key bindings section only has quick save being shown up in the game. not only that the menu mod thingy also has user.settings that overrides my changes made in-game each deployment. if i'm using HDRP i'd have to always re-set the textures setting to HDRP setting (after each deployment, my texture settings will become "low").

welp, turns out it really be the issue on symlinks. it looks like the game can't properly read/write symlink-ed configuration files. since I'm using a mod called Friendly HUD, by manually copying Friendly HUD's modified input.xml under \config\r4game\user_config_matrix  the key bindings of every action finally show up.

 

the only way to avoid this problem if insisting on using vortex is to avoid symlink deployment, by having witcher 3 game on your C drive, the mod staging folder in your C drive so that it shares the same drive with your My Documents folder (%UserProfile%\Documents). This will probably allow other kinds of deployment method so that you can avoid using symlink deployment.
