2. Frequently asked questions about installing SMAPI

Q1. Is the update required?

A1. It’s not a requirement, but after a big update, the working mode doesn’t work! If you want to update and update existing modes as well, it’s a good idea.

Q2. After installing SMAPI, two modes are installed automatically. What is it?

A2. Administrator mode, automatic backup mode. It’s better not to delete both, especially automatic backup mode..

Q3. How do I download the Smarty MAC OS version?

A3. See Stardew Valley Wiki.

Q4. I’ve had a lot of errors since the Q4. 1.6 update, please help!

A4-1. Error Handler 3.18.2 because it’s obsolete ~ : Delete the Error Handler mode in the Mods folder. (This is the mode used in 1.5 and not used in 1.6 so an error occurs.)

A4-2. ~it’s no longer compatible : The modes that were previously installed are not compatible with the updated smartphone version. Delete those modes from the Mods folder, or update them if there is a new version available for 1.6 in Nexus mode.
