Help installing keyring mod in Exult on Mac OS Sierra!


Hello all,
I've been having some trouble getting the keyring mod to work in exult on my mac. I've followed the read me and all the other documentation within the exult page also. I still do not get the option to play with the keyring mod when I launch Exult. I have downloaded the file then extracted the zip into the mods folder I created then place in the blackgate folder I have with the rest of the data from the game. Am I missing anything. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.


Latest Exult snapshot and keyring mod downloaded.

Please tell us where your blackgate folder is, where keyring.cfg is, where the keyring folder is (common mistake, make sure that you don't have
.../mods/keyring/keyring.cfg and ../mods/keyring/keyring).
Also ,please copy/paste your exult.cfg

My black gate folder is located at (Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Exult/blackkgate) My keyring.cfg is in (Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Exult/blackgate/mods/keyring/keyring/) the data folder for the keyring is in the second keyring folder. I previously deleted the extra keyring folder and there still was no option to play with the mod within the game.
Below is my exult.cfg Thank you

Rename Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Exult/blackgate/mods/keyring/ to Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Exult/blackgate/mods/Bad and move the contents of Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Exult/blackgate/mods/bad to Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Exult/blackgate/mods/.
Still with me? The problem is that you didn't unzip the contents of the zip to the mods folder but into subfolder of mods named after the zip.

I think I follow haha. I renamed the first keyring folder to bad and moved the contents which is the other keyring folder to bad which was already in the mods folder. I originally created a mods folder first then unzipped the contents of the keyring and that didn't work. I think I'm still a bit confused. I now have bad and the other keyring in the mods folder within blackgate. I apologize if I'm doing something wrong. Should I start from scratch or do something else?

I'm glad you sorted it out. I suspected that from the start but it's hard to describe what is wrong :)
