Feature Suggestion

Please add auto dependency download minion is already a wonderful software for managing eso but it really needs that feature. Also I think i figured out the issue with it not detecting eso for some reason eso doesn't create text files like AddOns .txt Errors .txt and others because I had the same issue then made those files myself and it fixed detection.

Auto dependency detection & download is something on the list for Minion 4 already but it need changes on esoui backend too.
It's done when it's done.

About your 2nd information:
Thanks for the info but please provide us more detail, about this txt files please?
I do not know any files called AddOns.txt, Errors.txt or "others"?
Which files do you talk about and where are they located?

Beside that I'm not aware of any txt file need to detect the ESO game install folder properly, but that's something that the Minion dev would know best (and I'm not involved into the Minion development).
I guess this is just a coincidence that, after you have created those files where-ever, Minion detected your game properly.
Sometimes it just needs several restarts and time to detect it, like written at the "Trobleshooting" sticky post.


I also got a feature request to you:
Please add punctuation and paragraphs to your text so we are able to read it properly
Thank you for considering this the next time as reading and understanding your text was really hard.

I never had nor created these files and they are not relevant or created for/by ESO.
I do not know why Minion should search them at all.

ES is creating live/AddonSettings.txt and libe/UserSettings.txt, that's all.
Both are irrelevant for Minion and only needed for ESO itsself.

What Minion needs is the live/AddOns folder to exist as far as I know, and ESO will create this after your fist launch of ESO and getting ingame, same as the AddOnSettings.txt file will be created then first.


I think Minion is finding these txt files "now" after you have created them as Minion searches for addon's txt (manifest) files in the ESO folder\live\AddOns.
So if you point it to the "correct" documents/elder scrolls online/live/AddOns folder it will only search inside that folder and not check any other txt files outside of it.
If you only point it to documents/elder scrolls online it will search all txt files in there.

If this was not the case and those TOC entries in the log were shown while you had chosen the correct live/AddOns folder and before you had manually created those files (which I never saw before) maybe the Minion devs can check what has happened here.
