Description:

Version Emulate

Original Author: Arantor | Current Author: SMF Customization Team
Supported Languages: English
Link To Mod | Mod Discussion | Other SMF Customization Team Mods

Summary:
Many mods will in fact work on versions other than those listed - without modification, but require coaxing to do so with a little trick called 'version_emulate', that essentially tells the package manager to pretend to be another version of SMF for the purposes of testing for installation.

This mod adds an option to 1.1 that allows you to input another version that will help with installation. It will not guarantee that it will work, simply that the version check will be passable. Some mods require changes to be compatible with a different version.

NB Similar functionality is already in 2.0, though it's a free-format text box there.

Compatibility:
Compatible with SMF 1.1

Installation Information:
The Package Manager should work in most cases, if you have problems installing please use the discussion thread as well as Manual Installation of Mods
