Re: TA3D doesn't load any mods

That's interesting, in both files the names of the 2 sides are ARM and CORE and since it is where TA3D looks for these names it's what it shows. What happens if you select ARM or CORE and start a game ?

Re: TA3D 0.6

The 0.6 branch is the last stable branch and is based on SDL, not Qt5. The Qt5 port is the 0.7 branch which is currently unstable. Also the 0.6 package is much bigger because it contains much more data (graphics for menus, unicode fonts which are quite big) than the 0.5 branch.
