Template:Notice Small In this section we will be using a Program called Merge Plugin Standalone to reduce the overall esp count. Once mods are merged using Merge Plugins Standalone, under the "Legacy Of The Dragonborn - Special Edition" profile they can be deactivated(unchecked) in Mod Organizer 2's Left Pane.
New users are advised to check out THIS video by Michael of Gamerpoets to learn how to use Merge Plugins. It is quite long, but well worth watching, some parts can be easily skipped via the video's navigation tabs.
It is strongly recommended that a new Profile be created within Mod Organizer for each Merge (merge profile). This will help workflow later on, and can be done by:
* Click the [Configure Profiles] icon at the top of the main Mod Organizer window. The icon looks like an id card. * Select "Legacy Of The Dragonborn - Special Edition" then click [Copy]. * Type "<Insert Name of Merge>" in the text box and hit [OK]. * For each merge profile, right click and [Deactivate all mods] * For each merge profile, manually check the boxes on the left for all mods (and their masters) for each Merged patch. * You can use the [Namefilter] function at the bottom right of MO2's Left Pane to display ONLY the checked mods, making it much easier to see mods of interest. * Run LOOT for each merge profile. * Once LOOT has sorted your load order, hand place all ESPs that are to be merged at the bottom of the Right Pane in the order described for each merge.
Idiot check make sure you don't move your mods folder out of Mod Organizer 2 base folder
