Can't add files to OpenIV (yes I have checked I'm in edit mode)
I've started figuring out how to mod GTA V, I've managed to get it working with mods that are automatically installed with OpenIV but there are a few mods I want that require me to put .ytd files directly into a specific place. This is fine, but it won't work. I am definitely in edit mode and copy and pasting will not work. Even if I click the "add new file" button it still won't add the files. I don't know what to do because every page I read about it just says you're probably not in edit mode, but this isn't the issue.
You can't drag and drop? Maybe use the replace option? Right click on the file you want to replace in OpenIV and select replace from the context menu.
Found your solution, do not try to drag and drop a file within a zip file, unzip or extract the file first then add it.
@Raffahell very timely response, only 3 years later.
If the OP can't figure out how to install a ytd why would you suggest he's trying to copy over a zip file? How would he even know there is a ytd in the zip unless it was extracted first? Sure, he could peek and take a look but that's Modding 201, for more advanced users.
