~ FAQ ~

What versions of Skyrim does it support?


* In VR, once you hit 'Record', everything begins recording. There is no popup with information. Similarly, when you click on a recording to play it, it may seem like nothing happened. Please exit the MCM and a popup will appear prompting you to play or continue that recording. Sorry, I can't seem to get popups appearing over the MCM menu in VR

Does it support MCM menus which require you to "Exit the MCM to continue"?


Does it support MCMs where the pages don't all show up until you "Install" or "Activate" the mod?




Does this conflict with any other mods?

Thus far, we have determined this conflicts with:
- Ye Olde MCM
- SkyUI - Resort
- MCM Limit Upgraded

These will not be compatible until patches are developed.

I can't find my McmRecorder folder with the generated files

If you use Mod Organizer 2, it's in your Overwrite directory. Go to Settings and then the Paths tab and you'll see the path to your Overwrite folder. It should contain your McmRecorder directory.

Can I share my recordings with others?

Yeah, for sure!

You can just put your McmRecorder folder into a .zip file. That's it! You can release it on NexusMods if you like or just share it with friends. Folks can install it using any mod manager and it'll show up as an available recording in the MCM Recorder mod configuration menu.

You can even add your own name and give your recording a version number! Just edit the McmRecorder\[My Recording].json file. Be sure to distribute this file along with the McmRecorder\[My Recording] directory containing all of the .json files describing the MCM steps.

Why can you run recordings using Keyboard Shortcuts and VR Gestures?

Sometimes it could be useful to toggle different MCM options quickly, e.g. via keyboard shortcuts. This was a request from users and it can actually be really useful!

~ Advanced ~

The recorder puts files into folders inside of Data\McmRecorder

The files are intentionally very easy to read and edit by hand.

Simply open them up in any text editor and you will see something like this:

  "Mod": "Apprentice",
  "option": "Light Armor",
  "page": "Trained Skills",
  "toggle": "on"

If you cannot guess, this instructs MCM Recorder to load the "Trained Skills" page of the "Apprentice" MCM menu and toggle the "Light Armor" checkbox to "on" (if it's not already on)

If you want to learn the format of these files, I recommend you simply make a recording and then view the files that are generated.

Auto-Run Recordings

Do you want to automatically run a recording for new games that you start? (Very useful for distributed modlists!)

Open your main recording file. It can be found at Data\McmRecorder\[Your Recording].json

In the file, update "autorun": "false" to "autorun": "true". Now whenever Skyrim starts, this recording will automatically run.

  "author": "Mrowr Purr",
  "name": "Purrfectly Awesome Modlist",
  "version": "4.2.0",
  "autorun": "true"

Note: multiple recordings can be configured to be autorun

~ Modlist Customization ~

There are a few things MCM Recorder provides to better support modlist authors:
  • Autorun MCM Recordings (which run right after RaceMenu closes)
  • Show a custom popup message when the recording begins playing
  • Show a custom popup message when the recording completes playing

These can all be configured in the recording definition file, e.g. Data\McmRecorder\[Your Recording].json

  "author": "Mrowr Purr",
  "name": "Purrfectly Awesome Modlist",
  "version": "4.2.0",
  "autorun": "true",
  "welcome": "Welcome to my Purrfect Modlist!\nThis is on a newline",
  "complete": "Purrfect mod configuration complete! You are now ready for adventure!"

Keep requesting features to make MCM Recorder one of the best mods available for creating modlists!

That's it, y'all

Enjoy <3
