BOSS for Oblivion
Setting the correct load order for your mods is a crucial step to enjoying a stable
modded game. Better Oblivion Sorting Software...aka BOSS, is designed to assist
mod users in avoiding mod conflicts, by providing automated load order sorting
that's simple to use and fully customizable. While sorting, BOSS checks for load
order errors and notifies you of any issues that it detects.
BOSS also provides thousands of plugin specific messages. Including usage
notes, Bash Tag suggestions, requirements, incompatibilities, bug warnings, and
installation mistake notices. It supports the sorting of plugins ghosted by the
Wrye Bash utility, and has been translated into multiple languages.
BOSS utilizes a Masterlist text file to sort plugins into the correct order. Although
it recognizes tens of thousands of plugins, new mods are constantly being created
and released every day. This means the Masterlist requires frequent updates. We
depend on mod user submissions in order to keep pace with the mod community.
This page is simply a portal from which to download the Masterlist text file, in
the event you are unable to do so via the BOSS GUI. If your GUI is functioning,
and updating properly through an internet connection, you already have the
most up to date Masterlist.
In order for the Masterlist to be of any use, you will need to have the latest version
of BOSS which can be found here. Older versions of BOSS still function, but won't
be able to update via the GUI. Versions prior to 2.3.0 may not properly read the
Masterlist due to formatting changes.
Downloading the Masterlist
Find the most recent Masterlist in the files section. Once you've downloaded and
unzipped the file, you just need to install the Masterlist into the Oblivion folder
located inside BOSS on your PC.
Copy/Paste the Masterlist into the Oblivion folder. Make sure the "Sort Plugins" box
is checked on the GUI and run BOSS.
Submitting Unrecognized Plugins
If you wish to submit an unrecognized mod plugin, please do so either through
your BOSS GUI, or by posting on the main BOSS page over at Oblivion Nexus.
Apologies, It's just more convenient for me to only have to track two sites.
Full credit for BOSS goes to the original development team. I take no credit for anything
other than typing a bunch of mod names into a list that was already very well developed.
