I see. Well, it looks like that one might be abandoned and someone is working on a version for SMF 2.0 RC3. If they can get it working correctly for that version of SMF, it shouldn't matter whether whether TP is installed or not.
I don't have time to look at this right now but, in the next week or so, I may take a look at the newer version, but it won't be until after I have finished the testing I'm doing right now for the next TP update. It certainly looks like an interesting Mod.
