Adding a mod to your game

Recommended Posts


After reading 100s of posts looking for help to simply add a mod to my game, in frustration I create this new topic.  I don't want to create a mod or do surgery on an already existing one.  I just want to add a mod or two to my game.  You see every time I add a mod, the game does not load and the it crashes.  Why???  Do I need to add memory to my machine or what could be my problem.  I know others have these issues as I see their questions here but never a reply.  WhY?

Thank you for your time and help,

Hi @MiMi1105, welcome to the forums!

Usually, using mods should be a painless experience: subscribe via Steam Workshop or download and extract to the mods folder, launch Don't Starve, activate the mod in the mods menu, and play. If your game then crashes, it's typically because of the mod. I'd suggest letting the mod creator know of the issue so they can fix it. You can also upload your crash log here so someone can take a look, but if there's something wrong with the mod, there's not a lot that can be done without editing the mod files directly. Your crash log will be at Documents\Klei\DoNotStarve\log.txt directly after the game crashes, the file gets rewritten every time you relaunch the game.

WOW, alainmcd!

Thanks for all this great info.  I just had technical support remote into my brand new PC to try and get the game to run and found out my new PC is too wimpy.  ARGH!  I am off to buy ANOTHER new PC just so I can play Don't Starve.  That's how much I love it.  I am looking at a bad boy that is called a gaming machine.  However it comes loaded with Windows 10.  I see from the website and Steam, the requirements list up to Windows 8.  seems silly it would not work on Windows 10 but before I spend a bunch of money I want to make sure.  Feel me?  

Thanks in advance for your wise advice.
