IMPORTANT NOTES FOR NEW USERS:
- The first time you run the installer, make sure you have all of the plugins that are already active in your game checked, otherwise they will be removed.
- The installer program will suggest a possible installation directory. DEPENDING ON YOUR COPY OF X2, THIS MIGHT NOT BE THE CORRECT DIRECTORY. Double check which directory on your hard drive actually contains your game, and make sure to point the installer to this location.

How to Use the All In One Installer
How to Use the All In One Installer
You will be given an opportunity to check or uncheck each individual plugin to be installed. After the first time you run it, the installer will remember which plugins you have installed and will have these checked by default when you next run it. It will update all of your installed plugins to the latest version.
Whenever any plugin is updated, we will release a new version of the all in one installer. Simply download the new installer and run it. All of the plugins that you have activated in your game will be checked by default to be upgraded. If you want to add a new plugin, simply check it to be installed. Run the installer to upgrade all of your installed plugins. It's that easy!
If you uncheck a plugin that is currently installed, the installer will give a warning message. If you continue, the installer will partially uninstall the plugin by removing the necessary files from your /scripts folder.
To complete the uninstall and correctly remove the plugin, you must revert to a save game from before the plugin was first installed
If you do not go back to an earlier save, but remove the files, the plugin may still be partially active in your game. If there are any wares, these will likely still exist (although do nothing), ships which are running the commands will continue to run them until stopped, and all sorts of other weird things may potentially occur. Do not attempt to remove a plugin unless you are absolutely sure you know what you are doing. Ask in the forums if necessary, we will be happy to help. Uninstallation is an unsupported feature which is provided for your convenience.
Autosave Backup Feature:
To make reverting to previous saves more convenient, every time you run the installer, it will create backups of your two autosaves, X20.sav and X21.sav. These will be placed in a backup folder with the names X20_1.sav and X21_1.sav. The next time you update your plugins or add new plugins by running the installer, these saves will be renamed X20_2.sav and X21_2.sav, and two new backups will be created as X20_1.sav and X21_1.sav. The installer will save up to 6 different pairs of backup save games before deleting the oldest ones (1 being the most recent, and 6 being the oldest).
The nitty gritty details for the power users out there:
Common files are always installed and updated
When unchecking a plugin, only the setup.xml files are removed. This way the plugin will no longer activate on game load, but the core scripts will still be in the /scripts folder to prevent possible problems.
If you have multiple installs of X2, the installer will not recognize that you are installing to a new directory when deciding which plugins to check by default, it only remembers your last settings.
If you use the installer for multiple installations of X2, and you use the windows control panel to uninstall, it will remove the scripts from every installation directory.
