Trespasser Mod Manager

(original post)
I've written a simple application to provide a GUI for changing the current Active Mod in Tres CE.

It's designed to work well if placed in the Trespasser 2020/Tres CE directory, but everything except the Launch Trespasser CE button should work in other installations.

It generates the list of your installed mods by checking the /mods folder, so keeping a list of commented out inactive mods in the tp_mod.ini is not necessary.
It's important to note that the application will remove all commented lines from your tp_mod.ini file, but this should have no effect on the game as Trespasser also ignores commented lines.

The CE Settings tab is not active, but if I can find a way to deal with the trespasser.ini non-destructively, I'd like to create a GUI for viewing and toggling those settings as well in the future.

I found it to be very refreshing not having to edit the tp_mod.ini with a text editor anymore and some less tech savvy people may appreciate this app.

I hope it helps make Trespasser modding just a sliver more accessible :)

Similar problem for me, apparently the file violates Google's Terms of Service.

This is a total godsend though, I was really hoping someone would do this at some point! Thanks, Mike.

Maybe Google Drive is iffy about it because it contains an .exe.

I've added an alternate source. Please let me know if you continue to have problems downloading!

I figured but ty for clarifying :) I will remove the old one to make things less confusing.

Working on a new version of this right now so that the Active Mod text in the App will change in real time whenever the tp_mod.ini is changed ...

UPDATE 16 JUNE 2021:
- Added tabs back (Mods & CE Settings)
- "Set as Active Mod" button now disabled until a mod is selected
- Added limited support to toggle some simple Tres CE settings

WARNING!
Trespasser Mod Manager removes all commented lines from the .ini files it edits and changes the setting names to lowercase.
This is built in to how Python edits Config files for whatever reason, but it doesn't appear to affect the game.
Advanced users who are accustomed to having full control over their .ini files should backup their .ini files before using.

As I said elsewhere, this looks really cool. I hope we can eventually have a great long list of CE functions for toggling/setting... Open up the experience to more people.

Hey, Mike - it seems the latest 0.4 version won't work for me? I was previously using the first release and it worked fine, but the latest one simply gives me the error "Failed to execute script TMM" when I attempt to run it.
