I've tried installing Wine; no success, tells me I need Bison 3.0.0 or newer, which I tried installing, unsuccessfully. It led me down a rabbithole of things I needed to install and I couldn't get it to run. Next, I got Mono for Mac, and though the installation seemed fine, I was unable to figure out what part of the mod loader to run next?

I recommend joining the Into the Breach Discord server (https://discord.gg/ZyVxdHS), as I believe a Mac user had success with installing the modloader and mods.

Added an important step to the BEFORE UPDATING list (which I had, of course, forgotten about).
You don't have to reinstall the game or mod loader if you've already done so, but without it the mod loader won't work correctly.

These changes will be performed automatically in a new version of the mod loader.

Having an issue whenever i try to load Modded ITB

the game auto crashes immediately with a popup saying "EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION" then "Callstack:" followed by multiple sequences of Numbers

And when i checked in my ITB files there was a new file called "Error" that had this:
...r/ftldat/kaitai_struct_lua_runtime/string_stream.lua:43: attempt to index field '_buf' (a nil value)

I don't know what to do, please help

Uninstall and reinstall the modloader. That looks like your `resource.dat` got corrupted, and reinstalling is the easiest way to restore it. If it still does not work, you might want to do a full reinstall, so uninstall the modloader and use Steams "Verify Game Files" or your local equivalent before reinstalling

Hi, I'm trying to install the mod loader. I put it in the file stated, but when I started the game, there's no button for mods. Did I miss a step or something?

Because the folder comes straight from the GitHub, you might be merging the wrong folder into it. You need to overwrite some files when you install it, and if it doesn't prompt that means you're adding in the wrong folder.
