Hi all. I worked on an installer and a mod manager for FF8. I focused for the moment on the 2013 version and FFNx, but it can become way more if you are interested !

You just need to put the .exe and the folder that manage the version of the mod directly in your FF8 folder, and double click on it, and here you go !

You can select which mod you want with a **GUI** !

In the futur I will add many more if you like it. Could be the reference for all mods !

Thanks to @TrueOdin for letting me work with FFNx and @myst6re for all the help on it.

Keep an eyes on https://github.com/HobbitDur/HobbitInstaller/releases for futur mod added !
Here the list of compatible mods: (version 0.0.9)
DefaultFilesFR/EN/DE: Put back original files (useful if you have installed gameplay mod)
FFNX: Low level tools to interface with the game by @TrueOdin @myst6re @cosmos_xiii and @vertex2995
FFNxFF8Music: Better music by @myst6re
FFNx-RoseAndWine: Change music to ogg by DLB and @digixu for the porting to FFNx
FF78Launcher: To avoid having many click on launcher, just directly launch the game by @julianxhokaxhiu
FFNxBattlefields: Improve battle field quality by @mcindus  and @digixu for the porting to FFNx
FFNxLunarCry: Improve monster quality by @mcindus   and @digixu for the porting to FFNx
FFNxTripod: Improve triple triad by @mcindus  and @digixu for the porting to FFNx
Ragnarok-EN-ONLY: Hard mod by @callisto
HobbitGameplayMod-ALPHA-FR-ONLY: My mod I am currently working on.
FFVIII-curiosite-FR-ONLY:  Special mod by @Antoine211 !
FFVIII-Reloaded-FR-ONLY:  Hard mod made by @mexico for french only !


Don't hesitate to try it, it is fast and easy to use. Tell me the mod you wanna add !
F.A.Q
- Will it works for remaster ?
Sorry, it is for the 2013 steam version for the moment, as @mcindus  is working on an installer for remaster. But the idea is that my mod manager handle his installer and way more ! It will be like an "hyper-installer".
- Does it works on linux ?
Yes, and you have one click setup thanks to dot: https://gist.github.com/dotaxis/954e906ee03c9309b5518751ac4f5d3a

Next version https://github.com/HobbitDur/HobbitInstaller/releases/tag/0.0.3 available ! It adds LunarCry, Battlefield and Tripod with FFNX. Thanks a lot to @mcindus for allowing me to add them to the mod pool !
Also added the https://github.com/julianxhokaxhiu/FF78Launcher from @julianxhokaxhiu which allow to skip the two click on the two launcher.
