About this mod

Increase the capacity of your Backpack and Bank individually! There is also an option to allow UNLIMITED Backpack Space without crashing your game! This doesn't change total capacity, but allows you to keep picking up loot! The default options are 40 capacity but allow you to go up to 200 capacity!

PRACTICALLY ALL MODS WILL NOT WORK AS OF 2020 UNLESS YOU PUT THE FILE THAT YOU EXECUTE INTO "OFFLINE" MODE VIA THE BOTTOM LEFT OF BLCMM.  THIS DOES NOT PREVENT MATCHMAKING, RATHER IT IS A METHOD TO FIX MODS NOT WORKING DUE TO SOME UNINTENTIONAL CHANGES TO BL2 FROM GEARBOX.



ALL OF MY MODS WILL NOT WORK IF YOU DO NOT HEX EDIT YOUR GAME AGAIN IF YOU
HAVE NOT PLAYED SINCE THE FIGHT FOR SANCTUARY DLC OR THE UHD GRAPHICS
UPDATE!

DO NOT USE BLCMM TO HEX EDIT YOUR GAME, BUT USE IT FOR EVERYTHING ELSE!

THE "UHD" UPDATE CHANGED THE EXE SO YOU WILL HAVE TO USE THE FOLLOWING TO
HEX EDIT IT FOR THE CONSOLE AFTER VERIFYING YOUR FILES VIA STEAM:

IF YOUR GAME REFUSES TO ACTUALLY START, LOOK FOR "ddraw.dll" IN YOUR WIN32
FOLDER IN YOUR BL2 BINARIES DIRECTORY, THEN DELETE IT.




THIS MOD MUST BE MERGED IN BLCMM TO BE USED CORRECTLY!
OFFICIAL DOWNLOAD FOR THE TOOL IS AS FOLLOWS

MAC AND LINUX USERS

This mod somewhat works for you guys and gals, the capacity changes to both the Backpack and Inventory do not work.
However, the "Unlimited Backpack Space" does.  I wish there was anything else, but it is all that I can do.
At least it is better than nothing!




SIMPLE OVERVIEW

Add BankAndBackpackSpaceActivatorPart1.blcm to your modpack, such as Patch.txt in BLCMM.

The second mod aims for Bank and Backpack customizability!

Open up BankAndBackpackSpaceCustomizerPart2.blcm in BLCMM AS A SEPARATE FILE AND CUSTOMIZE IT!

Then add BankAndBackpackSpaceCustomizerPart2.blcm to your Binaries folder for BL2, otherwise it will not work.

So, as an example from above, whenever you execute Patch.txt, it will include Part 1 which will activate Part 2 in-game.



IN-DEPTH OVERVIEW

This mod is a little different than most due to a method that a friend and I figured out.
Instead of 1 mod it includes 2 with names to match.



Part 1, also known as the "Activator", is the only thing you will add to any of your modpacks.
This simply enables special actions caused by Tab, I (eye), and E.  These keys retain their normal functionality.
This part technically activates Part 2 in-game, so you will have to edit this mod if you rename part 2.

Part 2, also known as the "Customizer", you DO NOT add to any of your modpacks.
Instead, you customize this file with BLCMM in a SEPARATE file!
This mod MUST be added to your Binaries directory for BL2!
This will allow you to customize your Bank and Backpack Space in various ways with individual options.

These options are as follows:
Make your Backpack Space be a total of 40 at the Default option, all the way up to 200 capacity.
Make your Bank/Vault Space be a total of 40 at the Default option, all the way up to 200 capacity.
Make your Backpack have "Unlimited" capacity*, which doesn't change the size but rather you can keep picking up loot.

I limited the capacity to 200 due to negative impacts on game-play in terms of loading your Backpack and Bank.

There is an issue with the "Unlimited Backpack Space", which is the fact that you cannot buy items from Vendors past your default or modified Backpack capacity.


* Be warned, this option can have adverse effects on game-play.



Side Note: you can edit the customizable file on the go in BLCMM, then save the file and the next time you do
something it will update in-game with no need for exiting or restarting!




QUESTIONS

Question: What happens if you have X amount of items in your Backpack or Bank from the mod, then you forget to execute it?

Answer: You will keep all of the items stored in either location, it will just revert the additional capacity down to full capacity (removes empty slots until it is back to vanilla capacity).


Question: Does this mod work off host as a client?

Answer: Yes, this mod works off host in any game lobby.  This mod even works if the host is not running this mod, so have fun ninja looting their bling bling.



KNOWN ISSUES

Pretty much the only issue now is if you have "Unlimited Backpack Space" enabled, you can equip more than 4 guns at once.
This only occurs if you hold your interact button on a gun to equip it from the ground.
This pretty much means that you will have an unusable gun that you cannot select with #1-4.
The only way to access this gun is to drop your currently held weapons, which by default is " - ".
The item will drop on the floor when you do so and can be picked up normally.

This will increase the capacity of the Stash, but DO NOT put more than 4 items in!
