I have an oblivion mod downloaded, but I dont know how to put it in my data files thing, I need serious help, I hardly know how to clear the cache on my computer let alone this.
does the mod have folders inside it like a Textures folder or is it just a .esp file?
first- download oblivion mod manager from tesnexus.com
second- read the readme.txt, I used to not read them either but it's not like they're essays like I thought, it should give you brief directions.
third- If the readme is confusing or sucks, put all folders that say textures/music/sounds/etc... into your DATA folder in c:/Program Files/Bethesda Softworks/Oblivion folder
fourth- put the .esp or .esm file into the data folder as well.
fifth- open OBMM (Oblivion Mod Manager), click utilities, Archive Invalidation, click on BSA-alteration and update now.
final- now start oblivion through OBMM or the normal way and see if that works.
