Don't you hate it when you break the game, but you're not sure how, so you have to reinstall--not just the game, but all your mods?

The irony being that it's usually a mod that causes the problem, so, double-edged effect.

....and this is the exact reason why I do the following:

- Install Armada 1 plus its patches and SOD editor etc.etc. - Install Armada 2 plus its patch and SOD viewer, map editor etc.etc.

Then I make a complete zip of both these, which means that I'm able to reinstall much quicker than straight of the original cd (which is kept nice and safe).

Alternatively, make sure you back up EVERY file your going to change or if your making a larger mod then use something like an install creator which can auto-backup replaced files during install.

Exactly. Specially when working with large modifications, not making regular backups is suicidal. I do have a few installs with different mods, I just don't have a current backup for each one. I guess it takes a little pain to get the habit. Maybe a lot of pain :-)
