Command Line Argument

A command line argument is a parameter that is added after the executable name to pass information to it. They are a basic OS feature.

For example, instead of just executing "xEdit.exe", it is started as "xEdit.exe -sse" so it starts in the Skyrim Special Edition game mode.

In Windows, they are typically added as part of a Windows shortcut.

Refer to the manual of the mod manager how to add executables and command line arguments for them:

Since TexGen/DynDOLOD based on xEdit, they support the Command Line Switches of xEdit. Below is a list of the useful ones:

-[Game Mode] for example -tes5, -sse, -tes5vr, -enderal, -enderals, -fo4, -fo4vr
-o:"[path to output folder]" for example -o:"c:\Output\"
-m:"[path to INI folder]" for example -m:"c:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition GOG\"
-p:"[path to plugins.txt]" for example -p:"c:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Skyrim Special Edition GOG\plugins.txt"
-d:"[path to Data folder]" for example -d:"c:\GOG Games\Skyrim Special Edition GOG\Data\"

Replace [USERNAME] and the INI and Data folder paths accordingly for the actual setup.
