I make, modify, compile, these mods for my own personal in game use. They change the game interface to look like I want it to look. I place them here for others to download and use if they so desire.

They are NOT "one size fits all" and will not please everyone. If you like them use them, if not, delete them.

You are free to customize or modify any of them, its your interface make it like you want. But DO NOT ask me to customize them specifically for you, or ask for details on how to customize them. If you are familiar with mods and xml, you can probably figure it out. I will attempt to correct bugfixes in the mods, as soon as practical.

    Just tweaking mine now before loading.  I think those files are loacted in res/xvm/configs/@default.  Perhaps replaceing these with your previous ones.  I know there is the option to remove these in the alternate settings beside @default.

  • #191

    Hi, there!

    Am i the only one who has no lines and circles on the minimap? Last known position gets displayed.

    But regardless these "problems" or not: You do a good job, arasgrandpa!

    I love the running stats for session when click system channel in Garage, but when scroll up for battle synopsis it is in Russian.  How to switch language in that?

    Couple of things..

    1. Try oen of these
    2. Check to see if you have res_mods/0.8.11/text directory, if so delete it...

  • #189

    I'll have to take a look and see if I got right uploads.  Mine are working fine in game, so must have done wrong upload..

  • #188

    no text directory.

    loaded style 2

    same deal  in Russian

    loaded style 1,  is fine.  but like style 2 :)

    so loaded style 2 again

    back to russian

     loaded style 3,  pop up after battle is fine, but system button not working.

    New AIO posted with restored enhanced HitLog for hits taken

    Also after posting the new AIO, I fine tuned teh HitLog some more.  So I have uplaoded the Damage Panel V2 for 0.8.11 on the site.  You can download it and install over KISS for a better hit report.

    I will include it in teh next full update.

    any word on the enhanced hit log? is it still a work in progress? miss seeing what i was hit with..

  • #182

    You can downloda my damage panel v2 from the forum site.  Works but does not give details, only who hit you and how much.  STill working on other version

  • #180

    I solved this for now by using the hitLog.xc file from another mod that has both hits you've done and hits done to you listed in a 2 column table which is by your damage panel lower left.  The one I lifted the file from was Kodos Hitlog Panel, might have to search web for it, don't think its on Curse, he 's an EU player.

    Just swapping in the one file gives me the damage info incoming and outgoing.

  • #183

    Which mod was that, would like to see how they did that.  Since I didn't know XVM did incoming.

  • #175

    I have a problem with interface, It change the look of effects in game. It's so bright you can't see anything after shooting. But only on maps with sand, on other maps it's normal.

    Deleting spaces and system helped to solve problem.

  • #177

    I am not having those issues, so my bet  is it may be another mod.  Have you loaded another mod with KISS?

    Anyway, here is something to try.  My mod has the anti-fog and high visibility mods in it, That is all tht impacts teh lighting in game.  So you can delete the follwoing folders and see if that helps..


    This will also delete the hi-res minimap images, but you can reinstall them from Curse
