Wasteland Survival Guide

Installing Tale of Two Wastelands


In this step, we will install and activate Tale of Two Wastelands through Mod Organizer 2.

If you run into any errors when installing, check the FAQ to see if it has the solution.
  1. Make sure both Mod Organizer 2 and the game are closed.
  2. From the TTW Download page, download the 3.3.2 Installer file.
  3. Extract the contents of the 3.3.2 Installer archive to a new folder called TTW Installer in a safe location outside of any default Windows folders.
  4. Once everything has been extracted, navigate to Mod Organizer 2\mods\ and create a folder there named Tale of Two Wastelands.
If you are unsure as to where/what your MO2 Mods folder is, open up MO2, select the mo2 folders button at the top, and select Open Mods folder.
  1. Back in the TTW Installer folder, right-click the TTW Install.exe and select Run As Administrator.
  2. In the installer, verify that the automatically set file paths for both your Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas installations are correct.
  3. Set the Tale of Two Wastelands install path to the Mod Organizer 2\mods\Tale of Two Wastelands you created in step 4.
  4. Install paths for 3.3 installation
  5. Ensure your paths look similar to the example above, then select Install.
The install may take a long time as the .ogg encoding is very CPU-intensive. It takes about 40 minutes on my 5600x but could take several hours or even longer on a slower CPU.
It is recommended to leave your computer alone and have any CPU-intensive applications closed during this install to reduce the likelihood of installation errors
