You are correct about them not being needed; you can delete your extra manifests. Make sure to keep the original one, though.

This has been an interesting thread. Thank you guys, I've filled in a few blanks I've always had about manifests and UMODs.

I made a tutorial a long time ago on how to get Windows to automatically install the UMOD files for you, all you have to do is double click them and select the install directory.

That's not the problem Skillz, The problem is that whatever UMOD is opened it always thinks it is the ThieveryUT Umod and when I proceed it complains that I don't have the correct version of unreal tournament installed. It does Recognize it as Umod though.

I've never used a umod to install anything. I've always run umod extractor. That's mostly why UMOD seems a little arcane to me.

That means your Manifest file was replaced by the ThieveryUT one. (It was supposed to add it's Manifest INTO your current one, not replace it. You can blame the author for not properly setting up the umod.)

You can fix this by editing your Manifest.ini, check out this page for what needs to get pasted in. Make a backup of your existing one, first.

In the future, make sure to save a backup of your Manifest.ini before installing any UMOD files.

So Rex in essence a manifest is really just a running list of installed mods so that the default uninstaller knows whats been added? No wonder they scrapped that.

I realize that's not the issue. That's not what I was replying about. Bozzy said he can't use umods, that he has to use the umodbrowser.

Bozzy, then you are following the instructions wrong or giving Windows the wrong path to your install directory. What version of Windows are you using?
