Not sure what you mean.  colors.xc is still in the res_mods\configs\xvm\default\ directory.  New version downloaded today.

Did you make a recent change to your config files? If there's a mistake in what you did, it will force XVM to always load the default configuration.

I've been using the same color config for many patches. simply replace color xc. and presto. my colors are there. now it doesn't work. do I have to make a new one now? I hope not cause it is a huge pain in the [edited]!

Same here.  Was about to make a new Topic with this:

 

Did something change in the XVM Code with today's patch?  

 

I always download the colors.xc from the wotlabs homepage and replace the one in /res_mods/configs/xvm/default/ so I have the same color scheme that's in our sigs but it's not working; I'm stuck with the weird XVM colors.  

 

Only other thing I have installed is Session Statistics, and that isn't overwriting anything in the default folder as far as I know.

Maybe you should go to the XVM forum where they have multiple topics about changing to the new dynamic coloring to go with the improved WM8.

Link? The XVM forum is pretty bad with very few posts, and this is all I could find:

https://koreanrandom...lor-scale-help/

Basically there's a new colors.xc that wot labs needs to have available is what it sounds like - also they really need to stop pushing the broken scale they use (one team is all 1600 players, the other is 2200, but everyone is "green" - this is stupid)

Seems like mod packs have it, but I don't want a modpack just for that alone....

Well I've been messing with it and I can only get it to sort of work. I can get the colors to change, but when I break it down into more categories they don't display. I can't figure out why. I'll keep working on it. Very annoyed......:angry:

This one works, at least for wn8 and wgr, which are the only two I use.  If  want others you have to add them since XVM does not seem to include them anymore...

That still doesn't give me the wotlabs color scheme.  It's almost as though XVM changed the code, so that it's no longer pointing to /res_mods/configs/xvm/default/ because replacing the colors file in that directory does nothing.

This is my colors.xc: https://www.dropbox..../colors.xc?dl=1

It follows the wotlabs scheme. However, whether it works with the rest of your configs depends on what's in your other files.

That still isn't working.  Took a look at XVM change notes, and noticed this, which I think is the problem:  

 

Block Quote

 [RATINGS]
* removed config sections:
"alpha"/"eff"
"alpha"/"wn8"
"alpha"/"wtr"
"alpha"/"wgr"
"colors"/"eff"
"colors"/"wn8"
"colors"/"wtr"
"colors"/"wgr"
(colors.xc, alpha.xc)
* disabled original color and alpha settings for ratings since XVM scale is used by default

 

So the question is, how can we get it to point to colors.xc again?

See https://bitbucket.or...5abbceaa7cce03d

The "removal" of those sections only involved commenting out the relevant lines.

If the lines are not commented out, they should override the XVM default, which is why my colors.xc works for me and also for Aj_TheCatLady.

I removed the comments and still can't get it to work.  I'm an IT guy and did programming years ago, so I'd like to think I'm not a complete idiot :)

 

Care to share your alpha.xc and colors.xc files?

Are there any errors in your xvm.log (located in your main WOT directory)?

 

I linked colors.xc in post #12 above.

My alpha.xc is here: https://www.dropbox....i/alpha.xc?dl=1

So did the following:

  1. Deleted res_mods & mods
  2. Ran the "Check and Repair Game Integrity"
  3. Installed latest XVM
  4. Replaced colors.xc and alpha.xc with yours

 

... still don't get wotlabs WN8 colors (i.e. I'm showing as green in game, not blue).  What in the world....

 

xvm.log seems ok I think:

Zip your res_mods and mods folders and upload to Google Drive / Dropbox so that I can try your setup?

Thanks for taking the time to try and figure this out for me.  Here they are, and there's also a screenshot of my player list so you can see what I'm seeing in game, i.e. I'm green instead of blue like my signature.

 

EDIT:  I don't know if it's related, but my game has been doing some other weird things over the last couple of days, perhaps since I did the "Check and Repair Game Integrity".  It's been playing music in the garage and battles, even though I have it turned off, and battles are starting off with the camera in a weird position, such as looking at the ground.  Testing the Sixth Sense Sounds in the Sound tab also does nothing (no sound) EDIT 2: and now no Sixth Sense in battle either!
