What Does the Missing Masters Mean?
When a “missing master” error is reported, one of two things can happen. Either the file is not active or installed, or the name is not what the plugin expects.
First and foremost, you must install or activate the missing plugin. You may also need to add or change the “missing” master’s new name.
The most common reason for changing the name of a “missing master” is when a “merged” version of the master plugin is created to reduce the number of active plugins.
The content is now contained in a single file rather than several. An example of this is a “All DLC” version that uses a single merged file rather than one for each of the individual DLCs. The plugin is still searching for individual DLC files to use as masters.
