Which pics.  The intro screen, the Crew?  Have you added another mod that may have over written the script?  This is the first I heard of this.  Over 300 DL's.  Do you know anyone else having this issue?

Although I do have a question, what is the point of the white tank corpse?

COmes in hand when people are hiding behind DEAD tanks. Makes it easier to shoot THEM and NOT the dead tank.

+100 from me. As a relatively "newish" player. This has helped me tons. I very rarely chime in on threads, but this pack went right in and all worked except xvm which isnt a big deal to me.
I prefer to be called an unskilled tanker as opposed to n00b or newb or noob. I just dont have the time to really learn this to be good at it but I have a dam good time with it. Thanks for
the mod pack!!!

TilDeath,

Thanks for the mod mate, working sweet except for the following

1. In game tank type and name appear on the same line above the tank
2. Tank pin-up garage does not appear

Now I dont have prem but I have renamed the folder to \res_mods\0.8.4\content\Interface\shells\Hangar and all the files from Hangar_p _* to Hangar_*
I am able to see the stock standard prem garage but not your awesome one.

Any ideas?

I already have Dead white tanks , Jimbos crosshairs and a non-working version of XVM installed. Do I have to remove them first or just install yours ?

Just install.  It will overwrite the files.  Please make sure to read the READ ME FIRST text doc to get your XVM working properly.

Thanks for the no nonsense mod. It makes the game more enjoyable for someone like myself who is the inverse of a pro gamer. This game (simulator) is second only to the first Diablo. I am thankful that when we die we don't lose our gear like in Diablo. Playing this game well is still a bit of a mystery for me. I have spent some time reading and watching tubes and why some people are so good reminds me of fishing. With the same bait the boat next to us will pull fish in as fast as they can reel while we catch only a fraction. To see this happen from the same fisherman time and time again rules out Luck.  For me this mod is most useful in identifying who is playing and their experience. I have been teaming up with to learn from players that have 10k, 15k, and more and for the most part they score well. I am hopeful that following and attempting to be a support tank is not offensive to the more experienced players. I have a feeling that knowing these maps like the back of your hand plays a big part. That said they also have had some epic bad days getting popped in the opening of the game, leading us into a well staged ambush, or just not making that correct tactical choice. This gives a player like myself the will to die, and die, and die more.

I did not like the white tanks at first. Now I think they are brilliant.
* I would like to have a hotkey to go to full zoom out and then to normal zoom.*
The choice of the gun sight is top shelf.

I installed another mod pack first and it went fubar. At 4am it harder to get all the details right. I reinstalled the game and applied your mod pack. It was straight forward thanks to posting of the read.me. at post #15. Good job on the technical writing. Time is an issue and finding out info on the game as quick as can be done is most helpful. If I were retired I could see me doing some of those good old people drugs and playing this game for 20 hours a day. I bet there is something like a gaming viagra: lol

1. When the game is updated will mod updates be posted here?
2. Color coded tank types not used why?
3. Would you recommend one (#2) that is your mod compatible?
4. Can I change the settings on the 2 info panels?
5. Can you add to this mod a lock so that I cannot spend real $??

On #4 I would like to use a bit smaller font and see like the games played, five letters of name, kills, tank type, (and tank heath % ??).


To your knowledge is there a quick reference chart type thing that could be displayed on a second monitor that would show tank info like aim points, tank speeds, cannon, ect? I have been using pro scout maps web page on my second monitor and it is helpful strategically and tactically to have a large map. I have searched and came up with zip.

Thank you for the comments and I am glad you enjoy the PAK.  It is the hard work of others and mostly just packaged by me.  I did some of the grahics and garage alterations.  But the real work was done by the MOD makers.

I have mine bound to my RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON.  Once setup in the MENU>SETTINGS>CONTROLS under the FIRE> SWITCH RETICLE MODE make it your RIGHT mouse button or another choice if you like.

Most people don't like them as well as myself and feel it is a form or cheating

No idea what you mean by #2

Which info panels but you can change how things appear within the XVM file located in the GUI\FLASH folder using Notepad ++ (Free Editor),  Dreamweaver or plain ol Notepad

You mean a lock on Gold?  I believe that would be a server side MOD and I do not think WG would like that :)

I am not aware, not saying that there is not something available but not to my knowledge.

For me the sounds are just right, detailed but not too busy. Some good low end stuff. The sound of rounds zipping by is realistic and chilling.

I will play with zoom hotkeys next game


Cheating, isn't the strategy of warfare cheating by definition? Joking aside I do not want to gain an unfair advantage using any mods. The color types I was looking into was for the two in game team panels to color code tanks by type. I am not talking about the color coded tank targets to find weakest part of the armour. For example at the start of the game I would like to see quickly how many artillery pieces each team has. Do players find this mod cheating? If so I will not pursue any more. If not, I was concerned about adding another mod to the game and fouling up something again, so I was asking if compatible alongside of you mod pack.


I will sit down and sort through the XVM editing as that is something worth knowing.

I switched my auto-aim and reticle mode keys, I like that much much more. I thought that before I did this if I held down the rmb when it was assigned to auto-aim I could look without turret moving. Now that auto-aim is on the shift button looking without turret move will not work. Ant ideas?

The hotkey I was hoping to assign is the view you get when you mouse wheel all the way out and then back to normal zoom mode (not sniper mode). I have my mouse set at 10 lines on the mouse wheel and it still takes me 4 or 5 strokes of the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. I have been caught a few time zoomed out and it is hard to fight zoomed full out.

I was sort of joking about locking the spending of real money.

You are quite welcome.  The hard work was from the actual MOD makers.  All I did was a few mixes and adjustments and the packaging.

Dokan is a must and another reason not to use Win 8.  It is not really designed to be used for gaming, more for touch tablets.
