MelonLoader is an open-source addon & mod manager for PC video games based on Unity Engine, the world’s leading multiplatform game engine capable of rendering an incredible variety of video game genres (from simple hand-drawn 2D platformers to the most detailed 3rd person AAA titles) on all major gaming platforms, including PC, home consoles and mobile devices. This gaming utility is focused on providing gamers with some technical knowledge with an ability to infuse PC games with universal mods developed by the Unity community.

The core functionality of MelonLoader is to establish a connection with a base Unity game engine and provide gamers with a streamlined interface to infuse real-time app processing with a wide selection of mods that can function inside all games, regardless of genre, size, and budget. These universal mods are focused on general use case scenarios, such as In-game exploring and debugging, run-time game visual tweaking, limiting of active CPU cores that are used for processing games, spawning brand new cameras that can be used to explore the game worlds in new ways, and much more.

In addition to universal mods developed for use with the Unity engine, users of MelonLoader can also use a limited selection of Il2Cpp Universal Mods and Mono Universal Mods that are compatible with this mod manager.

The process of installing MelonLoader is not complicated, but it does require the presence of some important .NET Framework packages (3.5 Runtime, 4.7.2 Runtime, and 4.8 Runtime) as well as Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Re-distributable in order to be fully functional. The mod manager itself is distributed as a compressed ZIP archive of very small size, that must be unpacked in the main game directory.

Uninstallation of the app is also fully manual, requiring users to remove the main EXE and DLL files of the mod manager, as well as optionally to remove “Plugins”, “mods” and “UserData” directories that this app creates in the game installation directory. Mod manager supports a wide array of launch options, load modes, and console display modes.

Since its base function is to alter the game processing code, users are advised to use this app only for single-player games, since online titles that have active anti-cheat measures will detect this app and flag users for potential cheating. MelonLoader is 100% FREE and is optimized for all modern versions of Windows OS.
