Post tutorial Report content RSS feed How to Install a mod for Torchlight 2

Installing a mod for torchlight 2 in the pre-guts stage is a pretty basic drag and drop procedure that involves unpacking a zipped file into a directory.

Posted by on - Basic Starting a mod

The hardest thing about installing mods for Torchlight 2 pre-guts is knowing where your PAK directory is.
it will either be in 1 of the 2 following places, For RUNIC downloaded Torchlight 2 it should be:

C:\Program Files\Torchlight II\PAKS

for STEAM downloaded Torchlight 2 it should be: (either x86 or non x86 depending on your 64bit?)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Torchlight II\PAKS

I have the steam version, the steam directory is a direct copy and paste, and the RUNIC is second hand information. Now, once you locate that PAKS directory, and you have SYNERGIESV142.ZIP.. you USUALLY can double click the zip file, whever ever you downloaded it.. and a window will open with TWO PAK files. a SYNERGIES.PAK and a SYNERGIES.DAT.PAK in most cases you can select these two files (ctrl-A) and simply drag and drop them into your PAK directory.. if the files are already there, OVERWRITE. and you are done.

conversely if you don't understand drag and drop proceedure you could unpack them anywhere you want, and copy / move them into the pak folder already unpacked.

your main goal will be unpack the zip file, then put the data.pak and the .pak files INTO the PAK directory. without those files, you have no mod.

Hi there. This is the first time to know that there is a mod version of Torchlight 2. I immediately downloaded the latest version of 1.47c
I really like to try the necromancer job. I follow the instructions on how to install the mod version. Everything in the 1.47c zip file, I paste them on the PAK folder.

but I can't create a necromancer. Still there are only four jobs.
what did i do wrong? or is there any patch i still need to download first?

When I unzip the download I only get one file - SYNERGIES.MOD - I put that file into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Torchlight II\PAKS folder but no change in the game. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just downloaded this mod for my Windows 7 (64) PC... my install (non-Steam) of this game somehow put itself in my ...Users\Public\Games\etc...
However, that's where the .pak files are.
To access the mod folder, it's actually much simpler than this original guide:
I found my mod folder at:
My Documents\My Games\Runic Games\mod
Paste the synergies.mod file into the mod folder, then launch the game with the modlauncher (second option down on the main launcher) and select Synergies.

you must download fix ModLauncher
put it on C:\Program Files (x86)\Torchlight II

then take synergies on mods

and then play with ModLauncher.
it works!
Sorry for bad english.
