  1. I got the Community patch activated (the newest), but feel no changes so far. Maybe I will explore more, as I’m not at UVHM yet (lvl 58).

    Just a dumb question: I do want to ask about a seemingly failed case of activating Github’s guns mods, as they ain’t worked. The master file and other .txt files were inputted, activation was successful on console command, but the weapons ain’t there. I did try “fastening” by using Gib’s Editor to get the modded weapons (from replacer mods), but they still appeared as vanilla ones instead. For example:

    _Commerce’s replacer mod (Bug Zapper) didn’t change it into Bug Zapper, just after I obtained it from Assassin Wot. The Master file that contained its line as Bug%20Zapper.txt was activated when starting console command before game, the weapon just wasn’t it however.

    _My obtained Sir Hammerlock’s Rex didn’t change into its replacer mod – Peacekeeper. Same issue as above, despite having Master file activated before game on console command.

    _Emperor wasn’t replaced with Elysium 5 (replacer mod). I got it through Gib for fastening (just this one to test out), and hella.

    So coming back to farm = didn’t work, nor adding through Gib. I don’t know the mechanism of these mods, although I did follow the whole instruction (and it worked for the first time). So how do I activate or track through these installed mods of mine? How do weapon mods work in game anyway?

    Thanks for your noticing.

    • NOTICE: The patch didn’t work either! There are, literally, no changes in vanilla game so far! I did activate step by step, Hex’ed and enabled console command, but it seemed that the patch didn’t…work or provide any changes in anyway.

      So does that mean the same thing is happening over the gun mod from Github? I got the game from, FRANKLY, Torrent, and it was the GOTY version. Could THAT be the problem?

      Thanks again for noticing.

  2. The GOTY edition is dirt cheap. I thought I was broke… Jesus.

  3. Is there any particular reason the Better Loot mod wouldn’t be working for TPS, even though I use the exact same process to use the BL2 better loot mod in /it’s/ community patch, and it works just fine?

  4. I got BL2 off the epic store and the patch doesnt work for it. Is there anyway to fix this?
