XVM 5.0 does not use Docan Library or XVM-Stat. So you can uninstall the library and delete the XVM-stat program. The game now launches normally from the WoT executable shortcut.
Once you install the new XVM 5.0, it's installed into your res_mods folder (separate XVM folder next to all your 8.x folders). The main XVM file will me directly in your res_mods/xvm folder. That's THE main loading XVM file. The extension has now changed, it's xvm.xc. Old XVM files were, I believe, xvm.xvmconfig,
If you liked your old XVM file, and you were used to it, the quickest way to fix XVM player stats in-game is:
1. Find your main XVM.xvmconfig file (usually in the gui/flash directory of your previous patch).
2. Save a backup of the file somewhere safe.
3. Rename xvm.xvmconfig into xvm.xc. This is crucial.
4. Now move / copy / paste the new xvm.xc file into your res_mods/xvm folder.
5. Restart the game.
That should very well run your XVM file the same way it used to in previous patches. I use a fairly clean and basic XVM file, and I use the server / game default markers / reticle / loadout. So other than Player Statistics, my XVM file has the StandardMarkers enabled. Depending on the version / type of your XVM file, the above step may or may
If it doesnt.
Use Notepad to open your xvm.xc file and check the fist 1-30 lines for a version. It should say who created the file. Then just Google and see if that person's new version is available for 8.8 patch.
As last and simple resort, there are a few new XVM.xc configurations available to download on the Web, so you may have to find a new one to use. Just please make SURE you put the xvm.xc file into your res_mods/xvm folder.
Finally, there's a xvm.xc editor available online. It has a lot of options and it's pretty self explanatory. Just "open" your xvm.xc file into the editor, and you will be able to change whatever you'd like. Make sure you save a backup copy, and again, make sure to put the xvm.xc file into your res_mods/xvm directory.
If you're looking for some new XVM loadout files, I use this website. It IS in Russian, but Google Translate should do the trick for the most part. They have some pretty damn sick XVM files to download.
Hopefully this will help at least some of you.
Edit: second link fixed
