The JSGME is property of JoneSoft (Jaesen Jones) and I am just hosting it here so I don't take any responsibility for problems possibly occuring - you are using the software on your own risk. I did not encounter any issues myself so far and the tool worked nicely for me so I consider it save and easy to use however.
Regarding X-Plane and possible issues I have some notes just for the case.
- Before updating X-Plane I strongly recommend to disable all mods and enable them later again after the update has finished.
- If you want to update any of your mods I recommend to disable them before doing so.
- If you have any troubles with messed up files in X-Plane there is no need to worry. If anything goes wrong just disable all mods and then run the X-Plane Installer and let it search for updates. The installer will now check all your files and will redownload all altered files and overwrite them with the original ones.
- Download and unpack JSGME.zip
- Copy the contents from inside the folder JSGME into your main X-Plane directory (JSGME.exe, JSGME.ini, JoneSoft.txt, JSGMEHelp.txt, MODS folder)
- Create a shortcut to the JSGME.exe on your desktop or wherever you like
- Copy your JSGME mods into the MODS folder
Enable and disable mods
- Select mods on the left window and click on the arrow button directing to the right to enable a mod
- Select mods on the right window and and click on the arrow button directing to the left to disable mods
- You can enable or disable multiple mods at once by selecting many of them and then clicking the arrow buttons
