BOSS removed from the Nexus


Ark of Truth

Recommended Posts

It's new to me too, but it kind of makes sense. The primary download is an exe installer so you have to make sure people don't try to download & install through NMM anyway, and although you can force manual downloads at the nexus - I think - there's also the matter that it's the same program for 4 different games so you'd be looking to centralize anyhow instead of maintaining four different download spots.

Wasn't BOSS one of the mods/tools that were never downloadable from Nexus? Especially the developer of some tools only put a download link on the Bethesda forums or link to their own webpage for downloads; the description on Nexus features very visible under the big, fat headline " Downloads" the very same address DoctaSax has mentioned.

Boss used to be available on the nexus as a download.  Once you installed it, you could then have it update its database, which pulled from the google docs site.  Guess the author decided it was more trouble than it was worth trying to maintain multiple download sites.  I don't blame him one little bit.

It seems that now there is a page that has a link to the downloads. The same page that Docta posted a link to. Curious that a copy of the link and such isn't available on the Skyrim page. It might be that they author(s) are still working on that page.

 

The forums linked seem to work for the games except Skyrim and Oblivion. Those are however locked.

BOSS has been removed from the Skyrim Nexus site about a year now (check the date the thread was locked in the comments - 03/2012).   This happened around the time that BOSS integration was removed from NMM.  They must have either forgotten, or just left the downloads on FONV until recently.  Frankly, I haven't looked at the BOSS pages in forever - just once when another comment was made here about BOSS being removed from Skyrim...

 

Just a hunch, but it seems like BOSS support was removed from NMM around version 30.2 - no references to BOSS in the release notes of any version after .20.0.

Well since NMM has been extremely dodgy in it's compatibility with the full range of tes and FO games it was probably left in till they could implement their own version of it. Problem is it's still dodgy from the ground up. Some of the BOSS files are exe's and won't be hosted on the nexus for obvious reasons, but getting BOSS has always been a hoop jump, at least when I did actually use it.

A little off topic...

I wasn't aware that there were issues with BOSS and NMM. Unfortunately I would have to use NMM with Skyrim for mods. Boss can still be used outside of Skyrim to order the mods correct? I believe I could use Wyre Bash but I am not confident and familiar with it. Currently I can get it to work with Oblivion but Skyrim not so much. It won't allow the DLC's to work so NMM is the only option if I want mods .

I am using both DLC's and mods with Wrye Bash on Skyrim.  I am using v297.1

I was using an older version.. Will upgrade to a newer version and see if that helps. If not I might make a post to help me configure it properly depending on the issue.

Just tested it and there is something wrong with BOSS. I put Dawnguard below Dragonborn and it didn't fix it. Also it says that I don't have the latest SKSE version when I most certainly do.

 

I tried boss with Wyre Bash it seems to work. I really don't have many mods just what the game comes with. Dawnguard, HearthFires etc. I flipped them with the UPdate esm etc. It was placed back in the original order. I don' t have NMM installed to test that. Yep both the external Command line as well as BOSS link in Wyre Bash works for me. Running version 300(standalone).

 

Which manager are you using?

Wait what is the latest Boss Version? I think I might have an outdated version.

v2.1.1

Also keep in mind that not all mods are supported or updated on BOSS they have an incrediable amount of mods listed but not all of them. I usually test using the DLC's of a game to make sure my BOSS is working correctly. I am pretty sure that they have the DLC's listed correctly... ;)

Hence why you use BOSS as a first pass and then rearrange what needs to be rearranged.

 

Boss is a great tool for beginners. Once you get a bit of experience you can arrange the load order by yourself. I rearrange mine after boss's epic fail and it works like a charm.
