Added support for Chocolatebox as well as the ability to enter a custom directory and save the directory to be loaded next time you run the batch file.
You might need to run my Fable mod enabler to be allowed to modify the games.

Text files consist of a single directory and are located in "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\FEMan\Directories"

The spoiler below contains the options available from the main menu.

This version uses the default Fable TLC directory to install the symlinks.

How to prepare for first time use:
1. Run as admin
2. rename TLC folder (enter 7 at main menu)
3. Set directories (enter 8 at main menu)
4. Make sure the directories are correct. If not, go to "Documents\FEMan\Directories" and edit the corresponding txt files to the correct directories then load saved directories (enter L at the main menu)
5. Install symlinks (enter 1 at main menu)
6. Select game to mod
7. Run Fable Explorer or cbox

How to use:
1. Run as admin
2. Load saved directories (enter L at main menu)
3. Select game to mod
4. Run Fable Explorer or cbox

You must repeat these 4 steps every time you run the script.
Run the script every time you want to change what game you are editing.

This is not final
More work to be done
Let me know if there are any problems

There are plenty of random lines in this script.
This is a rough draft but should still work.
entire script

UPDATE: Full support for cbox. Well as full as it's going to get. You can edit all the maps. That's all you need. Use Fable Explorer to edit .bin files.

To use cbox with Anniversay, use the freeroam app to extract FinalAlbion.wad. Dump in "WellingtonGame\FableData\Build\Data" not "WellingtonGame\FableData\Build\Data\Levels"

I suggest creating a shortcut to the .bat and right click->properties->advanced->run as administrator

The reason why I made this script to rename the TLC folder is so that no modification of any mod tools is required. It makes it easier and simpler in my opinion and it works perfectly with FE and cbox. Of course I could have implemented an option to install a modified config.xml with the current loaded directories. I might add that in addition to everything the script already has. After all, more is better. If anyone wants to improve this, feel free. Please improve this. We're getting there.
