Module Tab

RLUI Modules.png

On this tab you will be able to see a list with all your installed modules. If you have "Load Modules at Startup" enabled in the RLUI Settings Panel your modules folder will be scanned during RLUI startup, if not the list will be empty and you will need to press the Refresh.png button to scan your modules folder. Any module with problems will be marked as red and a small red sign will appear on it's row header, by moving your mouse over it you will be able to see what is the problem with it. If you want to read on how to add modules to your setup, make sure you check HERE.

The very last column of the grid will tell you if a module has any configuration files you can edit, there are 2 different icons:

Document.png This means the module has a single global configuration file that will hold the settings for all the systems that module supports. This file is stored in the same folder as your module and is named MODULE_NAME.ini.
Documents.png This means the module has not only a single global configuration file, but also allows system specific files for all or some systems only. System specific files will hold the settings for that particular system only. These files are stored in the same folder as your module and are named SYSTEM_NAME.ini.

This will validate the contents of the settings file(s) for the selected module and warn you if any error is fond. It will check the data in each ini file against it's associated ISD file for validity, if you are using invalid options for some keys you will be notified about it.
