Simply place the unzipped folders that you download into the Edition/install/packages/ directory and run the Installer to see them appear as optional mods.<td>

To install, simply place the "Edition" folder inside your "Oni" folder, then run the Installer.  You will have to globalize before you can install mods for the first time, which could take up to half an hour. <u>Note: At this point, AE Oni is not playable. You must install at least one mod before you can play the copy of Oni inside "Edition".</u>  Simply check the boxes of the mods you want, and press the "Install" button.  This process could take up to 5 minutes, but will be faster on most computers.</td>

70        <td>To play AE, you open the Oni application inside the "Edition" folder, and to play "vanilla" (unmodded) Oni, you open the original Oni application in the "Oni" folder *.  If you do not see a modified Main Menu that says "Anniversary Edition", you are not playing the Edition.

73        <td>*<font size="2">This is how it works for Windows users.  Note for Mac users: The Oni application remembers the last active Oni installation.  This means that opening the Oni.app in one folder could load an Oni installation in another folder.  The Installer automatically alters Oni's preferences to use the Edition installation when you globalize.  That means that opening the Oni.app in your vanilla installation will also load the Edition.  To switch between active installations, open the AETools utility in the Edition folder and look for the GameDataFolder-switching feature under the Special tab.</font></td>
