    Please use Stainless Steel default setup file if you want to apply SS AI, for all other mods use ReallyBadAI setup.

    5c. It may happen that you want to apply AI to an officially supported mod and no dedicated version shows (for instance your mod isn't in standard Third_Age folder, but in TATW):

    In this case please install RBAI again with "Custom Folders Fix" option ticked. Next time you launch setup and click on your mod folder, you'll get a long list of all available files, choose the one that mentions your mod.

    5d. Alternatively you can follow this procedure:
    You need to close setup and find and open ReallyBadAI text file that matches your mod in notepad:

    5e. Change text in [works for] section to match your non-standard folder name:

    5f. Start setup again, you'll see that additional options are available now for your mod:

    6. Note for Stainless Steel users
    6a. If setup file didn't detect Stainless Steel, go to ReallyBadAI files SS folder and copy "data" to your SS directory, then run SS setup.
