Tips: TR Patcher

NOTE: This page is deprecated but kept for historical purposes

The TR Patcher (mentioned briefly in their FAQ) is a small program that updates an .esp or .ess file to ensure it's compatible with data paths and etc in Tamriel Rebuilt. You can download it from Nexus mods.

An example of a mod that would need to be patched in this way is a cross compatibility mod, like Graphic Herbalism Tamriel Rebuilt Add-on Extra (minerals and egg clusters). Since that plugin was published, Tamriel Rebuilt has updated and things have changed. Run the patcher against that plugin to ensure it's updated:

java -jar TR_FilePatcher_v2.jar

A GUI will pop up, click "Open Files" and select the plugin file you wish to patch. After some time it will complete and leave behind a copy of the unmodified plugin (in case results were undesireable.)

NOTE: It's been reported to me that the TR Patcher is not compatible with Java 10. Of course it's important to keep software up to date, but Java 8 is still supported and does work, so for now stick with that when you need to use the TR Patcher.
