I have the following file in my Res_Mods folder

mod_ow.pyc

What is this file?
Can I delete it?
I usually delete all files whenever I reinstall my Solo ModPack
But this file was automatically in the folder after updating to 1.9.1


Res_mods > 1.9.1.0 > Scripts > Client > GUI > Mods > mod_ow.pyc


Any information would be appreciated, thank you.

That is just one of many little files put on your machine.  I doubt very much WG will tell us what they are and what others that are keeping track of what we do in the game.

Yeah I don't have that file in my mods folder.

 

You must either be compromised, or suspected.

Well it's deleted, anything in mods & res_mods dies every update.  Thanks for the information everyone.

Are you sure that file is not from Overwolf?

Normally the only thing in a new folder is the readme text file.

Winterpeger is correct, apparently that is an overwolf file

Well what does it have to do with world of tanks?

I only ever use the TeamSpeak overlay, so I don't think it would effect that.

Hey, I'm Dana from Overwolf, and I came across your post!

 

mod_ow.pyc is indeed an Overwolf file that is placed there so that Overwolf apps that support World of Tanks could read "events" from the game.
For example, the capturing app 'Outplayed' detects events like kills, deaths and victories, and captures them on video automatically. 

Since you've mentioned that you only had been using the TeamSpeak app, I will make sure to forward this to the relevant team at Overwolf to investigate the placement of this file without any app that requires it.

 

If you have any additional questions, let me know :)

I can't tell you the amount of respect & support I have for Overwolf after getting such a well explained & easy to understand answer in regards to this.
Thank you!
