So, if you use ANY polarfox mods, And not using Relhax, or Aslians mod installers, you are infected with adware.

Proof

More proof

More proof

Relhax banned this modder, and Aslians and Relhax removed the offending files.

Spoiler

So, if you want to use those mods, use Aslians. And no, this is not an advert for him, this is a serious issue.

Unfortunately the same thing applies to ekspoint's mods. They've been removed due to adware, by Aslain and others.

Folks need to understand that under the covers, python is a powerful language and can be leveraged to do some unscrupulous things.

Pretty much any language can do that... Its just easier in Python. Also, as far as I know, it is illegal to do that anyways...

XVM's gold / free XP lock = good thing.

Yeah, I miss many of XVM's garage features.  I only miss and have been unable to replace one of the in battle features, namely the proximity circle on minimap.

 

But I got tired of keeping my config files up to date, and simply didn't like any of the publicly available ones, so I gave it up.

The gold locker is an XVM setting. You can just click on the lock icon itself and it will lock / unlock spending of Gold.

I'm so glad Wargaming really checks and approves all these mods they allow in their game.

Im not sure if they can check the code or not. But it was disabled after aslian took it out, then he put it back in, and was enabled again.....

It’s called QA. The company is mostly a dev company right? Given that I’m almost sure they have a mod QA team.
