To better help newcomers understand what the Nexus Mod Manager (NMM) is and how it works, Dark0ne asked Gopher, a well-known and popular YouTube video blogger, to create a video tutorial to run through the program. This page is going to provide links to specific sections of Gopher's 34 minute video tutorial, which will allow you to pick and choose the areas you are interested in learning about rather than having to watch the entire 34 minute video. Of course, ideally, you'd be better off watching the whole thing!
