Installing Mods

Make sure Dungeons is not running while you try to install mods.

Warnings

🚫 Bitdefender user will need to uninstall Bitdefender, as it just breaks the program completely
⚠ Turn off any Antivirus Software as they will get triggered

Prerequisites

Install Visual C++ Redist
Download storepatcher.exe

Windows Store Installation

  1. Run the downloaded storepatcher.exe.

Note

The program will open the game at one point. Do not close it when this happens!

  1. After a while you will be asked to select a folder. This is where the game files will be stored.
  2. At the end, the program will display "Finished". The modifiable game is then installed! To start the game, you can click on the Windows Logo, search for "Minecraft Dungeons" and click on the entry that says "Minecraft Dungeons [Modding]"
  3. Now if you want to install mods, you can put them into the ~mods folder, which is located in Dungeons/Content/Paks in the folder you chose when you ran the program.

Note

You can also install mods through the Vortex Mod Manager:
If you had the Mod Manager installed while running the program, the plugin will have installed automatically.
If you didn't you need to run this command after you've installed Vortex Mod Manager:

mkdir $env:appdata\Vortex\plugins\game-minecraftdungeons;Invoke-WebRequest -Uri "https://docs.dungeonsworkshop.net\extension\extension.zip" -OutFile $env:appdata\Vortex\plugins\game-minecraftdungeons\extension.zip;Expand-Archive -Path $env:appdata\Vortex\plugins\game-minecraftdungeons\extension.zip -DestinationPath "$env:appdata\Vortex\plugins" -Force;
Now when you start Vortex, it should detect Minecraft Dungeons and you can install mods for it.

The Vortex automatic installation isnt supported yet, you need to download the mods manually and drag them into Vortex for now.

Warning

⚠ When activating developer mode with the program it might be required to reboot. If you encounter an error, try rebooting and run the program again and see if that fixes the issue.
