Real people were taking too long, so I did it myself.  This config will add a column to the overall view that shows how many games a player has played with the tank they're using in battle.  These numbers are colored in shades of blue to help them stand out from the other stats, in order to prevent confusion.  It also changes the global win % to the win % that the player has with their tank.

Version three is up, and gives each stat in the overhead display its own color instead of only being based on rating.

How do you change it to a .xvmconfig file? Will give all my remaining +1s (Only used one so far) to the first person who successfully helps me with this. Is there a way to make it still show the overall win rate also?

+1 btw, was needing help with this.

I had to laugh at this. I do suppose you're "real", right?

I used Notepad++ to edit the config file.

I'm not a programmer by nature and have no real desire to continue doing much with this later, but the opportunity to use these macros was something I didn't want to wait on for long once it was available.

Do I just copy and paste it into the origional file? Notepad++ does not have the option to save it as a xvmconfig file.

If you opened the .xvmconfig file to edit it, you can just hit "Save", and it will save as an .xvmconfig file.

If you're opening it as any other kind of file, then you'll need to go to "Save As", change the file type to "All Files", and type ".xvmconfig" at the end of the file name.  This will save it as an .xvmconfig file.

That made it work, thanks.

The attached file is an .rtf (Rich Text Format) file.  You need to change the extension to .xvmconfig so that XVM recognizes it properly.

You need to save it where you would save the config file for XVM, which is something like res_mods/0.7.4/gui/flash/.

If you don't even have XVM in the first place, start here.

There is no res_mods/0.7.4/gui/flash/ folder

only, res_mods/0.7.4 with a 1kb readme file

please assist, thank you

I really like this.... can you explain in more detail what the in-game lists (not the countdown or TAB screen) shows?
I see tank name in colors, and percentages listed.   Which are overall and which are tank-specific?

Do you know how to mod the OTMs too?
I think seeing per-tank EFF on each marker, with overall w/l% on the ALT screen would be useful.

Create the folders if you need to.... oh but wait.....
You probably have to install XVM first.

Sorry, you'll need to make the folders.  I took it for granted that I had to do that since I use mods so much now.

If you don't have the appropriate folder for installing the .xvmcomfig, then chances are that you don't even have XVM installed in the first place.  Refer back to my previous post to install XVM.  You should be able to find an English readme file that guides you through installation.

I looked at the OTMs (assuming this means the overhead markers), and I did change the win % shown to be their % in that tank.  I didn't fool around with colors or extra stats though as some alignment flags or limiters or whatevers were part of the code.  I didn't feel like I could mess with it and come out with something that I was going to be happy with publishing.

sorry, underestimated the problem. Stop me when I am wrong
1)The game is installed
2)The game is updated (and at this moment the game is playable w/o the config)
3)The new version of the XVM is downloaded and unpacked into the gaming folder
4)The config file is modified
5) After launching the game trough the wot-xvm-proxy and typing in the name and the password the game says "update required:pleaseupdate your application"

I have some bad news for you.

You may want to look into reading this and this and getting JSGME to install your mods in the future.  If you've already been doing this, I don't know what to tell you.
