Minion 3 - Internet issues

We have just released a quick update to Minion 3.0.12 that may require a full re-install of the client to solve the "Unable to connect to the internet" error. Please uninstall the old version of Minion and download the updated client from minion.gg if you are experiencing this issue.

More info will be posted about our new Minion 4 client soon too!

We apologize for the inconvenience.

It seems some people get issues when installing the new version directly over the old one.
I suggest you first uninstall the old version and choose to keep your profile data and only afterwards install the new one.

I uninstalled the old version but did not keep my profile. I installed the new version and I could not get it to see the ESO addons directory, either with auto scan or manually pointing Minion to it.

After quitting and relaunching Minion 3 times, the auto scan worked! Wierd.

Working for me

Uninstalled old Minion, installed new version, no problems.

Thanks for taking these reports seriously and finding the problem.

Note that the install is still flagged as not having a valid certificate. I ignored it but that's going to be a red flag for some.

New install

As a returning player I was greeted with the "cannot connect to the internet" when trying to run Minion. After uninstalling minion and installing the new minion it seems to work for me so far.

Loaded 32 bit new version, can't find folder

Ok, I followed all the instructions. I launched Minion and I set the add on folder in my options menu and can't find any of the add ons in the folder. Not sure what I did wrong.

May I ask when, "soon" is?

I had politely asked Siri if he could add something to Minion 3.x to prevent it from trying to download mods that have been updated but not yet approved. Siri, politely answered "Nope" and suggested I see when, "soon" might be.

So I'm taking his advice, just curious.

My issue is that the folder path is correct, the addons are in the folder and Minion updates them according to what is being shown on the options tab. For some reason my addons are not working or even showing up on my game. If you have an answer for me send me a message because I can't read messages on the website for the ads on the website.

Read my post 2 posts above yours, and follow the rules please.
-> I've even linked you the troubleshooting guide.It exists to be read and used...

Hint: I bet your issue is related to OneDrive.
Or:
ESO thinks you addon folder is not the one you think it is, so use the screenshot trick to find your correct addons folder, described here:

Any news as to when "soon" is? Someone was mentioning that they have Mac os 14 and Minion isn't working with it. Some java command line vodo from a comment didn't work either. They had to manually install the mods.
