Monstrum Extended Settings Mod Readme:
Below you will find help for managing the mod as well as additional information about it.
An English video by the creator of the mod going through this readme is available here: Youtu.be
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installation Instructions (Read very carefully):
1. Extract and move the contents of this folder to the root folder / directory of the Monstrum game on your computer. This is where the .exe file of the game is located. You can access this via Steam by clicking on the settings of the game and choosing "Browse local files".
2. Download "PartialityLauncher.zip" from Github.com . You may have to click on the title of the latest version or on the Assets drop down menu if you do not see the file. Alternatively, you can download the older but official version of Partiality from Github.com . The older version is what is covered in the video tutorials, but the newer version has an interface that may be easier to use.
3. Extract Partiality to a memorable place on your computer.
4. If you are using the new Partiality, launch the executable file called "PartialityLauncher" inside the Partiality folder. If you are using the old Partiality, launch the batch file called "Partiality Launcher" inside the Partiality folder.
5. Press on "File" and "Open Game" in the top left corner of the window.
6. Navigate to Monstrum's root folder / directory and double click on the executable file called "Monstrum".
7. Tick the box for "MonstrumExtendedSettingsMod.dll".
8. Press "Apply Mods & Patches" [New] / "Apply Mods" [Old] at the bottom of the window and wait until the window "Mod results" appears.
An English video by the creator of the mod going through this readme is available here: Youtu.be
If you need additional help with the installation and usage of Partiality you can view a video by Partiality's creator on the process of using the old Partiality here: Youtube.com
Additionally, there is a video with German text specific to installing the mod available here: Youtube.com
IMPORTANT: If you used a previous standalone version of the mod (1.0, 1.1 or 1.2), you need to uninstall it before installing a newer Partiality version (2.0+). Furthermore, if you previously installed any of the 2.X versions (2.0, 2.1 or 2.2), then you must remove the old "Monstrum Extended Settings Mod.dll" file from the Mods folder or deselect it in Partiality. The mod will not work if you select both dll files in Partiality.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Usage Instructions:
-----
1-3 [In-game] Access the in-game mod settings menu available in the options. Hover over a setting to see its description and instructions on formatting.
-----
1-3 [Text]
1. Navigate your file explorer to the root folder / directory of the Monstrum game on your computer. As before, you can access this via Steam by clicking on the settings of the game and choosing "Browse local files".
2. Open the text file called "modSettings".
3. Read the instructions at the top and for each setting very carefully. The first line of each setting will tell you what the setting is and what its default value is, while any following lines are used by the game. Editing the default value shown does nothing.
-----
4. Change the settings to what you want.
5. Launch the game in one of the following ways:
- Steam;
- The executable file called "Monstrum" located in the game's root folder / directory;
- If using the new Partiality: The executable file called "PartialityLauncher" by pressing "Run Game" or by pressing "Apply Mods & Patches" at the bottom of the window and "Yes" in the prompt that appears once the process is completed;
- If using the old Partiality: The batch file called "Partiality Launcher Quick Launch" in the Partiality folder;
- If using the old Partiality: The batch file called "Partiality Launcher" by pressing "Apply Mods" at the bottom of the window and "Yes" in the prompt that appears once the process is completed.
6. If the mod is installed correctly and your settings are in the right format, the mod will show confirmation text on the loading screen after starting a new game.
IMPORTANT: A few settings will require a full restart of the game for proper performance, which are labelled appropriately in the "modSettings" file. Most settings typically only require you to start a new game via the in-game menu to update. If the game stops reading your settings correctly, download the mod again to get a clean settings file.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How To Disable The Mod:
You can disable the mod in one of the following ways:
- Change the setting "Enable Mod" to false in the "modSettings" text file located in Monstrum's root folder / directory.
- Untick the box for "MonstrumExtendedSettingsMod" while running the Partiality Launcher and press "Apply Mods & Patches" [New] / "Apply Mods" [Old] at the bottom of the window.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How To Uninstall The Mod (Only step 1 is necessary, but the other steps will remove any additional folders and files left behind):
1. Access the Steam settings for Monstrum and click "VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME FILES..." under Properties/LOCAL FILES.
2. Remove the folders from the mod or those created by Partiality from Monstrum's root folder / directory. These are:
- "ModDependencies"
- "Mods"
- "PartialityHashes"
3. Delete the "Managed" folder inside of "Monstrum_Data". Rename "Managed_backup" in the same folder to "Managed".
4. Remove the files from the mod or those created by Partiality from Monstrum's root folder / directory. These are:
- "appid"
- "consoleLog"
- "exceptionLog"
- "modSettings"
5. Uninstall Partiality by deleting the folder you created for it.
6. Delete the PartialityLauncher and Monstrum Extended Settings Mod zip files you downloaded if not deleted already.
7. Close and delete this text file ("MESM Readme").
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
General Information About The Mod And Other Notes:
This is a mod that allows you to customise additional settings that you are normally unable to.
If you use the mod in a video or stream, please link others to the mod in the description so that they know where to get it.
If you wish to talk more about the mod you can join Team Junkfish's Discord server (the creators of Monstrum) at Discord.gg and talk about it in the channel #monstrum-modded. This is also where in development versions are frequently posted.
Additionally, if you wish to find out more about the mod's development, its code, or want to help in a more direct way, you can join the Discord server dedicated to the mod at Discord.com . This server is not very active though and the Junkfish server is used more.
If your mod stops working after using it for a while and a new settings file (obtained either via download or by letting the game generate a new one after deleting the old one) does not fix the issue, or the game does not run normally again after uninstalling the mod and validating Monstrum's files, download a clean copy of the game via the Steam console. There is a guide on the console available here: Steamcommunity.com
If you are still stuck after downloading a clean copy, try deleting all the files in "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Team Junkfish\Monstrum" in the registry editor (regedit).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reporting Bugs Or Getting Further Help:
Please contact the creator of the mod on Discord at Precipitator#5613.
You can do this either by adding them as a friend or by joining Team Junkfish's Discord server (the creators of Monstrum) at Discord.gg and reporting the bug in the channel #monstrum-modded . Of course the mod's dedicated server can also be used for this purpose.
It would aid in solving the issue to upload the "consoleLog", "exceptionLog" and "modSettings" text files when reporting a bug. You must rename or copy the logs after the bug occurs, as each time you start Monstrum again these files are reset.
IMPORTANT: Please do not contact any of the other people on the credits list for reporting bugs or getting help as they offered specialised assistance with development of the mod and do not know very much about how it works.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I put all the files in the right place but when I edit the settings it doesn't work the only thing the mod does for me is showing it's active in the loading screen.

If you experience an infinite loading screen then the mod might not have been installed correctly or a setting is broken under certain circumstances. I know this reply is very late, but if you or anybody else experiences any issues in the future it would be better to get help by contacting me on Discord via one of the stated servers or via direct messages if the readme does not solve your issue.
