[TUTORIAL] How To Install & Update ProMods [2.10]

Postby LoaderSaints » 18 Sep 2014 15:02

I made this tutorial to help you guys out on how to install ProMods as there has been so much hassle about it.
This tutorial covers only the free installation method.
Click on the images to see at full resolution if necessary.

You will need 7-zip in order to extract the mod files!

Additional notes:
ProMods 2.10 requires the Scandinavia DLC, the Going East DLC and Euro Truck Simulator 2 1.24 in order to work!
The browser used in in this tutorial is Google Chrome.
This tutorial has been made using Windows 10 64-bit.
I have no guarantees it will work the same way on other systems, but it generally should.
If your game crashes after installing try re-downloading the files!
If you have problems downloading the files try a different browser! (Some people say that Internet Explorer might have issues while downloading.)
If you have problems installing post your issue here!
If you are using MAC then you might want to check out the guide made by penguinaz available here!

1. Installing ProMods

Step #1
Click the Download button on the Board Index page.
Image

Step #2
Select the installation language.
Image

Click OK.
Image

Step #3
Click the link to generate your def file. It should open in a new window or tab. Remember to keep the other window / tab open too!
Image

Step #4
Now set the Cabin interior sound level, Damage level, Vegetation drawing distance and Colour settings.
Image

OPTIONAL: Select "Check this box if you are using Rusmap" only if you are using Rusmap! By enabling this option the world map should look correct when ProMods is used together with Rusmap.
Image

Click the Generate button and download your def file. Place it somewhere where you can find it with ease.
Image

After you have downloaded your def file you can close the Download definitions window / tab.
Image

Step #5
On the Installation window / tab, click Go to step 2.
Image

Step #6
Download all seven files into the same folder where the def file is located.
Image

When you click one of the download links you'll be directed to Adf.ly. In the upper right corner there should be a 5 second countdown and once that is complete the SKIP AD button should appear. Once the button appears click it in order to proceed.
Image

Once you are through Adf.ly you should end up on ZippyShare. This is the page where the actual download button is. Click on the DOWNLOAD NOW button.
Image

Repeat this for all the files!

Once you have downloaded all 7 parts download the FILE TEST file.
Image

Once you have downloaded all the files the result should look like this:
Image

Step #7
Select promods-v210-test.rar
Image

Right-click on the file and select Open with > 7-Zip File Manager.
Image

Once you have opened the file with 7-Zip click on the Extract button.
Image

Click OK in order to start the extraction process.
Image

Once the extraction process is complete you may close the window.
Image

Double-click on the TestFiles application (.exe).
Image

Once the TestFiles.exe has done its thing you should see a screen like this:
Image

Make sure the application shows the exact same message as below in order to make sure the files you've downloaded are intact. If this is not the case the files are corrupt and you should remove them and then download them again!
Code: Select all
SUMMARY:
EVERY FILE APPEARS TO BE OK (no errors).
   8 files passed checksum validation.

DETAILED REPORT:
OK   SHA256   promods-v210.7z.001
OK   SHA256   promods-v210.7z.002
OK   SHA256   promods-v210.7z.003
OK   SHA256   promods-v210.7z.004
OK   SHA256   promods-v210.7z.005
OK   SHA256   promods-v210.7z.006
OK   SHA256   promods-v210.7z.007
OK   SHA256   TestFiles.exe


Click Close to close the application.
Image

Step #8
Open promods-v210.7z with 7-Zip (this file may also show up as promods-v210.001).
Image

Once you have opened the file with 7-Zip click on the Extract button.
Image

Click OK in order to start the extraction process. This may take some time depending on your system.
Image

Once the extraction process is complete you may close the window.
Image

Step #9
Now select promods-assets-v210.scs, promods-def-v210.scs, promods-map-v210.scs, promods-media-v210.scs, promods-model1-v210.scs and promods-model2-v210.scs with Rectangle Select or CTRL + Left Click.
Image

Right Click one of the selected files and choose Cut or Copy.
Image

Open your mod folder (usually located at C:\Users\User\Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\mod). Right Click in it and choose Paste.
Image

Now your mod folder should look like this (it might have more mods in it though):
Image

Step #10
Launch Euro Truck Simulator 2. Then in the Profile Selection select the profile you wish to have ProMods in and click the Mod Manager button.
Image

Select one of the ProMods Packages by clicking on it.
Image

Then click the arrow button in order to enable the mod package.
Image

Repeat this until you have all the six files listed in the Active Mods list like in the image below. It is advised to have the definitions package at the top of all ProMods files.
Image

And finally click the Confirm Changes button.
Image

Congratulations!
You have now installed ProMods. If you like ProMods you can support the development by donating!

2. Updating ProMods

Updating ProMods is pretty simple. Start by repeating steps #1 to #8 of the Installing ProMods section. After you have done that, launch Euro Truck Simulator 2. Then in the Profile Selection select the profile you have ProMods enabled in and click the Mod Manager button. Then click on one of the old ProMods files in the Active Mods list in order to select it. Like in the image below:
Image

Then click the arrow button in order to disable the old mod package.
Image

Then select another old ProMods file in the Active Mods list.
Image

Then click the arrow button again in order to disable the old mod package.
Image

Repeat this for all the old files!

After you have disabled the old files, enable the new files you have downloaded just like in step #9 of the Installing ProMods section.
Image

And finally click the Confirm Changes button.
Image
You can now remove the old files from your mod folder as only the new files are needed.

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.

[TUTORIAL] How to install Promods on MAC! [1.97]

Postby penguinaz » 28 Aug 2015 06:54

Promods Extraction Tutorial for Mac
Updated for version: 2.00

What you need:
- The Unarchiver (http://unarchiver.c3.cx/unarchiver)
- Promods and Promods Def (Sign in/register here (no need to click if you are already signed into Promods.net) and then go here (to download latest version))

If you chose to do the free download, make sure you have finished downloading the 6 files ending in .001 .002 .003 .004 .005 .006 and then continue to the step below.

If you chose to do the $1 download make sure you have the 2 files ending with .7z, scroll down to the bottom of this post for further instructions.

If you have done the free download:
1) Look in your Download folder, you should have the six files ending with .00x (along with the promos def file you downloaded earlier, but we will ignore that for now)
Image

2) Right click the file "promods-v200.7z.001", hover over "Open With..." and choose "The Unarchiver". Now you should wait a few minutes while the Unarchiver does its work...
Image

3) When it is done you will see a folder called "promods-v200.7z" Even though it says .7z at the end, it is just a folder. Open it, and inside will be all the Promods .scs files. Move these and the Promods def file (which also ends in .scs) to your mod folder. (Usually in "YOUR USERNAME"/Library/Application Support /Euro Truck Simulator 2/)


If you have the paid download:
1) Look in your downloads folder, you should have 2 files you downloaded from Payloadz which ends in a .7z extension.

2) Right click on one of the .7z files and hover over "Open with..." and choose "The Unarchiver"
3) Repeat the previous step on the second .7z file.

4) You will now have 2 folders, you now just need to move the .scs files in each folder to your mod folder.

If you need more help, ask here on the Promods forum or look at the PC Tutorial above this one.
