Using Nexus Mod Manager makes things 10x easier. It should give you a prompt to choose Xcom 2 when you open it up.

Just  in case this bites someone else in the butt I wanted to share something I found.

Was trying to place Xcom2 vanilla with the Xsoldier mod.(I made sure I only had the vanilla version installed per the install instructions) But the game was crashing on load.

What I discovered was that XCOM2 was crashing because I had both versions for the MCM menu Mod installed even thought I only checked the Vanilla version in the loader.

Make sure you only install the MCM menu for the version of Xcom you are playing delete any other version. (May have been newb error on my  part.)

Vector mentions that if you are  upgrading to the version WoTC Xsoldier you need  to make sure and  uninstall the Vanilla version or you will crash, very hand tip it helped me track this issue down as well.

Love this Mod! I have my beefy Australian squad leader, yum!

Also  thanks for the Nexus Mod Manger tip Vfblitz, made installing mods a snap!

So I've tried to follow everything mentioned above and I just can not get XSoldier to work. I use mod manager to install and such and nothing. I think it has something to do with it being WoTC, but I have no clue. It never appears on my MCM screen, nor is there any visible difference after starting a new game. Any help is appreciated.

I don't know if you still need this, but moving xSoldier folder to vanilla mod path works for me (SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\XCOM 2\XComGame\Mods).

In my case Xsoldier won't be effective if I put it in WoTC folder like the instruction said. I don't know why though.

@gigauni Ty very much for this advice! When you did this, did XSoldier appear in the launcher's mod options? The reason I ask is that while I did as you instructed, XSoldier didn't appear as a mod that was activatable. Thus, ig this doesn't work for me? idk hopefully you have some insight xD

They do appear on the launcher:

Mine looks like this... Sorry this doesn't really solve your issue. Maybe you can try moving the mods back and forth on vanilla/WotC paths or even copy+paste them on both folders to see if the launcher can detect them at all. (If that works, you may want to delete either copy the redundant mods before starting the game.)

Hey Gigauni,
