Overwriting mod files

so i recently updated CS to 1.5 and installed the complete 1.1.3 stalker clear sky complete mod..i downloaded a realism mod which to install it says to copy the gamedata folder(in realism folder) to the cs directory folder..only thing is the directory folder already has a gamedata folder in it(from the complete mod) can i somehow install the realism mod without conflicting with the complete mod..i was really looking for this realism mod

you can only have one "gamedata" folder. just rename your current one "gamedata_complete" then copy the new modded gamedata into your CS directory.

then you can switch mods back and forth by changing the folder names back to "gamedata"

most stalkers here have dozens of renamed gamedata folders

If its the realism mod for Complete, then add the gamedata folder to the existing gamedata. If it asks to merge folders, then you've copied it right.

First cut paste the realism mod over the game data, if conflicts come up select the "Don't Copy" option. The conflicted files will then remain in the gamedata.

Then download and install Win Merge

You can use winmerge to merge the code of the conflicting files, it should be simple enough. With weapons, watch out for replacing the settings for sounds. Most numerical values should be overwritten given it is a realism mod.

Hope it helps!
