HoN Modification Manager 1.3.6 - Latest version

Hon Modman 1.3.6

What is this?

This is a program designed to remove mod incompatibilities and the need to update mods every new patch. It is also capable of maintaining a list of installed mods which can be enabled/disabled individually and offers an automatic update feature for mods.

What is the downside?

Compatible mods need to come in a format different from the simple resources*.s2z scheme, which is usually a little more work for modders to create. (There are however facilities implemented allowing simple conversion from .honmod to .s2z)
Incompatibilities with ".s2z mods" will persist as well (unless they are converted to the new format).

What does it look like?

Like this: (shown are three example mods)

How does it work?

When choosing "Apply Mods" from the program menu the enabled mods are applied to the original files from resources0.s2z and compiled into a single s2z mod named "resources999.s2z".

Installation & Usage

To install the program download the zip file linked above containing the program. You can place it anywhere you wish. The program will try to detect the location of your Heroes of Newerth install automatically; if it can't it'll ask you for the folder (usually something like "C:\Program Files\Heroes of Newerth").

To install mods (*.honmod files) put them into the mods directory (see below for locations) or drag them onto the program window. Any mod files in that directory that are compatible will automatically show up in the program.
To use installed mods you need to enable them first (e.g. by double-clicking on them), then select "Apply Mods" from the "File" menu. You'll need "Apply Mods" each and every time the game was patched or you have installed/uninstalled/updated any mods. The program will remind you of this.

The default locations for the mods directory are:
C:\Program Files\Heroes of Newerth\game\mods

Check the mods section on the right side for mods that go with modman
