Sometimes u need to scroll a bit up/down in order to see it.
I thought maybe if I just put the ES folder in MODS, it would work, but when it didn't show, I kinda figured, maybe I need to re-unzip my ES download.
As far as Zyl El goes, I downloaded the files.....I unzipped to the MODS folder, but it did not create a Zyl El folder. So, I did so manually. Then copied all the files into that. It still doesn't show. Am I doing something wrong?
Edit again...I take that back, the ES file, once extracted initially, is then self extracting...ok.....extracted to ES300R folder I created in MODS....started D2SE....still did not work.
Edit: Wait...you say you see them under corresponding versions. The screen shot from the D2SE page shows the Mods right below all the vanilla versions. Or, do I need to do something different to get them to show up below?
Edit: Of course, neither the ES download or the Zyl El download are the self extracting zip files that are mentioned in the D2SE instructions. Is that my problem? Can you not just extract all to a folder you create within MODS?
Ok...I now see in SeltSamuel's D2SE post that there's a Zyl El self extracting file...I'll try that. Then, I just need some guidance on how to get ES working....though, from the sound of it, I may not want to do that through D2SE for the time, being, anyhow.
