Installation & Basic Usage
Note that BOSS does not support Windows 2000 or earlier.
1. If you have Wrye Smash, make sure the "Lock Times" function is deactivated.
3. Extract the BOSS archive you downloaded to your game's installation directory (ie. the one containing the Data folder and TESV.exe, so "Skyrim", so that there is now a BOSS folder alongside the Data folder and TESV.exe.
4. In the BOSS folder, run the "BOSS.exe". This will download the latest masterlist from the Internet and then sort your mods.
5. Thereafter when running BOSS, you may run it directly from the BOSS.exe to simply update your masterlist then sort your mods, or you can use the GUI to choose how BOSS runs.
Once BOSS has finished running, the output will be displayed automatically. Read any notes, errors if applicable, and make any relevant changes that are suggested by them. Wrye Smash will automatically import and apply Bash Tag suggestions from BOSS. Some Bash Tag suggestions can come with conditions and notes that require human intervention though, so read the suggestions makes thoroughly and adjust tags by hand in Wrye Smash if necessary.
You will need to reorder unrecognised mods by hand using a mod manager of your choice (eg. Wrye Smash).
