Frosty Tool Suite – [WIP] Startup User Guide

Here I’ll explain how to setup Frosty Tool Suite for the first time.

 

This is a quick and temporary user guide until I manage to make a tutorial. Please note, this guide is merely a suggestion of mine. I prefer doing things this way. It’s up to you if you want to follow it or not.

 

Once I get the video done, I’ll update this post with it.

The game I’m using is Mass Effect: Andromeda but it should apply to all FTS supported games.

 

Requirements

STEP 1

  • Install the .NET Frameworks 4.6.1+. You can install only 4.6.1, if you wish.
  • Install PeaZip (or your software of choice)
  • Make sure you have your admin rights and priviledges
  • Download Frosty Tool Suite
  • Uninstall your game OR use Repair Game from Origin. I highly advise a re-installation,  but that’s up to you. If you do uninstall your game, make sure there aren’t any leftover files.

STEP 2

Unzip Frosty Editor to a location of your choice.

Ex.: C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\FrostyEditor

Unzip Frosty Mod Manager to a location of your choice.

Ex.: C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\FrostyModManager

 

STEP 3 – Frosty Editor

 

3.1

Go to C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\FrostyEditor and run FrostyEditor.exe.

 

3.2

At first run, you will be prompted to point Frosty Editor to where your game is installed.

Ex.: G:\Origin\Games\Mass Effect Andromeda

Click on the game’s .EXE.

Ex.: G:\Origin\Games\Mass Effect Andromeda\MassEffectAndromeda.exe

DO NOT SELECT THE .EXE THAT HAS “TRIAL” IN IT.

 

3.3

Frosty Editor will now build a cache of the game files. Let it run. DO NOT INTERRUPT IT.

 

3.4

Once the cache has been built, Frosty Editor will launch. It’s all setup. You can close it now.

 

STEP 4 – Frosty Mod Manager

 

4.1

Go to C:\Users\USERNAME\Desktop\FrostyModManager and run FrostyModManager.exe.

 

4.2

At first run, you will be prompted to point Frosty Mod Manager to where your game is installed.

Ex.: G:\Origin\Games\Mass Effect Andromeda

Click on the game’s .EXE.

Ex.: G:\Origin\Games\Mass Effect Andromeda\MassEffectAndromeda.exe

DO NOT SELECT THE .EXE THAT HAS “TRIAL” IN IT.

 

4.3

Frosty Mod Manager is all setup.

 


 

 

That’s basically it.
