    you mean you have to change the xml everytime you use a different arti?  which means rebooting the game everytime? just to get those travel times correct?  well that really sucks.  can't u fix that?

    BUT excellent mod.. its standard for me to use this for arti.. love it.

    Hello I love this mod, but I have a problem ...

    Since it has been updated to 7.4 I have not been able to change the original blue color for more color changes that I always appears in black. Could you give me any solution working? in black do not like.

    A greeting and thanks.

    This works ok with 0.7.4 -- just read the instructions and press "V" twice when the game starts.

  • #22

    It doesnt work for everyone, like myself. I press V twice and all I get is disabling/enabling GUI.

  • #18

    DAR not working with 0.7.4, dont even bother download.

  • #26

    It works fine for me, and I don't even have to hit V at the beginning of the game.

  • #19

    It's mostly working. I'm working on getting all of the French settings put into the .xml, but you can get the traverse indicator back by pressing "V" twice. Not sure what's causing this bug.

    I love this MOD. so many things to see that really improve the game and break the monotony. I have a few questions though with some links to my screen shots for reference.

    1. Is there a way to change the colors so that mine look like the pictures? right now my reticle and everything is just bright as heck green. [IMG][/IMG]

    2. is there a way to make it so that the reload timer is in TD mode/normal mode as well? It's really helpful to know how much time I have left so I know when I can turn around, be zeroed in and ready to fire on the lit enemy. [IMG][/IMG]

    3. Does anyone know where one can go to understand the actual use of those bar graphs? I mean as of right now I can't figure out what the purpose of them are and really don't pay attention to them since there's already so much going on the screen. There isn't a whole lot of information about this MOD out there on the internet whenever I search in google. So any extra information on the little bells and whistles of this MOD would be appareciated. 

    here is a link to my MOD's folder and it's paths. hopefully I put them all in the correct spot. [IMG][/IMG]

    Aside from the reload timer all of these settings can be found in the DARsettings.xml file.

    I really dont understand this, what numbers and so on, can you please help?

  • #16

    The screens look awesome.Is the mod campatible with 0.7.3?

  • #15

    I remember reading somewhere that 7.3 broke the DAR indicator. 

    Has this been fixed and if so how do I get it to work.

    Lastly, this is working in 7.4 test, but still minus the DAR indicator.

    This looked obstructive and a bit ugly to me so I wont be using it. It seems popular though so maybe I'm missing out....(?)....

    This is a great mod with lots of potential!

    My favorite tanks are SPGs and high tier Medium tanks. This mod can be modified with a text editor for calculating the SPG your using with the gun and the reticules (dual circles) will resize based on specified tank speeds with distance. That said I had to modify this mod for two reasons. First, was to much activity which was distracting; Second, more importantly sniper view and arcade view was problematic with compass. Therefore, I made my own modifications and combined it with the latest J1B0's crosshair mod and removed the compass/turret rotation.

    My modified targeting mod uses most of the DAR Artillery Sight for SPGS and the J1mB0's Crosshair mod for sniper and arcade which I also modified for a better dispersions reticule (finer detail and color for better tracking on the move and precision in sniper mode). Both these mods are great but the DAR Artillery Sight had to much activity for arcade and sniper. The J1mB0's mod lacked important info and also dispersion circle didn't have enough points for SPGs. Therefore, customizations gave me the essential elements of the DAR mod in SPG view such as reload time in seconds, degree of angle, travel time, distance and resized reticle based on distance, gun type and pre-set vehicle speed to allow me to more quickly judge lead time with out the compass and turret rotation. Now that I modified this mod (cleaner with less activity in SPG view) to work with J1mB0's crosshair mod for arcade and sniper I have the best of both worlds. Great mod with lots of potential (for users that can tweak mods).

    This is a great mod.  Looking forward to the settings info so I can change the color from a faded blue and remove the arcaded view compass.
