    Installing mods for FFXV


    So I installed Final Fantasy XV from the Windows Store. Now, usually you just give your Windows user full permission and you can edit the files but now Microsoft have blocked that.

    Is there currently any way for me to edit the files so I can install mods? Before a moderator or ambassador comes in and starts saying they don't recommend editing the files because it is "dangerous", that is complete nonsense so don't spread misinformation.
    Steam allows it. GOG allows it. Even Epic allows it.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Would that still apply if files are being completely replaced, instead of modifying them? Since then you aren't really breaking the encryption.
    I would assume it wouldn't work. The WindowsApps folder and all of its sub folders and files are encrypted. Nothing can be added, changed or removed.

    Steam would be far less of a hassle.

    I have found something that might work but no idea how to use it. Could you have a look? Here is a link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/uw...d=_29vj9cnrsokfryxokk0sohzg0e2xg01hi6tcyewv00
    Hi

    That link refs to a new (well, new'ish) folder that was added to Windows 10 in a System update, although I'm at a loss to which one. This folder is located at C:\Program Files\ModifiableWindowsApps.

    This was added as a hopefully potential update to the way future Windows Store games could be delivered. Unlike the hidden WindowsApps Folder it does not have be unlocked to view. However, no current Windows Store games can use this folder yet. So it's not
    going to work for mods.

    Just get the steam version like one mentioned I will not go into the whole argument of modding or not modding. I am a techie so you probably can guess my preference. This is not the place to teach people how to hack/Mod etc. let us just say there are ways
    around everything. Now with that being said just try to be positive on your gaming and even though it can get difficult at times to stay focused when you are having difficulties. Just for your information there are a great many helpful hints that are on other
    lets just say forums that you can go. If you dont know them and I am not going to assume ut you are in here asking so that's why i mentioned this. Ask some of your gaming friends and I am sure at least one of them can direct you to the place that can deal
    with these issues. You might not like the steam version for all I know so like I said there are always ways to adapt. Have a great gaming day and thank you for being a great member of the Xbox community.

    Most modding isn't allowed and goes against Microsofts TOS. It can be "dangerous" as well but I would be more worried about using unsupported mods and getting ban or suspension.

    Hi,

    As a fellow mostly PC gamer now, I feel your pain.

    Unlike other other PC game providers like Steam, Origin, GoG etc, Windows 10 apps and games from the Windows Store are encrypted.

    This means that even if you change the folder permission of the hidden 'WindowsApps' folder from 'trusted installer' to the local administrator, you still can not edit the files in the folders.

    This policy may change in the future.

    If you want a fully modifiable FFXV, you'll need the Steam version.
