    What about gamepass? It auto-instals to a I'm not allowed acess to. something to do with permissions. So can't use on without the other. I;m destined never to get this to work. I almost wish I;d got it on Steam, I've been so used to modding through there, all this needings X + Y permissions means I don't have the pre-game. Gutted
