in it and hitting the Remove selected items and the Remove unselected items buttons.
On the other hand you can hit the 'Find missing Pods' button to search for pod files mounted in some list but you don't actually have.
You then can also hit the Show in which lists the selected pods are to see what list you need to redownload eventually.
Hit the Create standalone launchers button to create superfast listmount programs.
Once finished you will find some .bat files under the launcher folder where you installed MTM2-Starter.
Just run the .bat of your choice to do a superfast mount of this list. If the list mounting is completed the fastlaunchers will
give you the choice of running the game in single player mode or to join the zone or just to quit the fastlauncher.

If the pod is allready in the list it will not be added. If the pod counter of the list is allready on 99, it will not be added. If
the pod counter is higher then 90 you will see a warning. When you see that a list has been broken after you added a
pod to it using the Add pod to more lists way you can always undo this action by hitting the 'Undo last multi-add' button.
