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.

    Uploading new AIO.  Please go to the web site and read the changes prior to downloading or posting questions.  Major change is in the Crosshairs.

    Change log for 04/21/14 Version:

    • Added a modified and customized version of Alekslee sights.  This gets back to the look and feel of the old KISS sights prior to 0.9.0.  See the forum for additional info on how to modify these sites you you wish to make them like you want them.  These include a better artillery sight that shows lots of informatin, including time to target. If you want the former modified JimB0 sight it is here: Modified JimB0 crosshairs.  Install AIO download first, then download and install this sight.
    • Added Zoom, No Dynamic Shake, includes Sniper Zoom4X. Zoom4x ste to 4,8,16,24 sniper zoom
    • Friendly tank outlines.  Now allied tanks have a off-white outline unless targeted by the crosshair, makes it easier to see your allies
    • HP Pool, at top of screen shows how much H each team has left.  Can be turned off in res_mods/xvm/configs/arasgrandpa/battle.xc set showFrags to false
  • #209

    Hey. Just made my account so I can give you some feedback. I've played this for some time now and been using your mods and what can I say, LOVE IT.

    Now, on to the matter. There are two things that seems to be broken, for me anyway. It's when I play my SPG. First my aim circle is missplaced, to my left and every 2nd or 3rd game I get constant CTD and when I try log back in it takes me 1-5sec before I get another CTD and all I can do is to wait for the battle to end.

    To sum this up. It seems to work well with maps, interface, crosshair for regular tanks, but not for SPGs. The only mods I have installed are: XVM 5.2.1 test 2, this newest Kiss_enhanced AIO and the newest Historical Gun sounds.

    Best of regards! /Coz

    Try new upload, sights off to right are definitely a cross hair mod issue.  But I thought I had all of them corrected.  Anywy, new AIO has new sights, tested with tanks, td, and spg.

  • #211

    Seen a lot of the CTD problems since update 9.0 (mine mostly come when trying to switch to another team member view after death) - even had my monitor switch off when checking Techtree in garage.

    Not at all sure any of this is directly related to Grandpa's mod at all.

    Only other issue I have relating to the Enh mod is that I'm no longer seeing the in garage clock since updating for 9.0. Is that a known problem?

  • #214

    Yes, WG admits to the CTD issues being their problem.  Has something to do wtih the multip-core coding, they are working on a fix. Although I can't remain blamelss :-)

  • #206

    Hi.. anyone else having  a problem after a match where the game crashes and you get a black screen? i just loaded the latest AIO and having some problems.. :(

  • #207

    New upload of AIO, which should fix this.  I accidentally put my cache file for stats in teh zip.  YOu can delete it in res_mods/0.9.0/scripts/client/mods/stat_cache,json and that should take care of it.  But new AIO also has some other corrections.

  • #215

    That one should be harmless, goes with anotehr mod (stats)

  • #210

    i found and deleted the stat file but i found a file named expected_tank_values.json there too should that be there or  should i keep that?

    Is there a sniper zoom mod that you can link us to please? I remember there being a 4xlevel sniper mod you made for 0.8.9 I think, just wondering where that went and if it's updated to 0.9.0?

  • #198

    The latest AIO has the sniper zoom back in it.  Had some issues until I could correct them. Uploaded it last night.

    Locastan's HP POOL mod would be nice to go along with this. 
  • #199

    Yep, been looking at that.  May put it in the AIO

  • #205

    I'll have to check should be doing that, may have got files crossed in two versions.

    Updated in 90v4, also added the HP Pool Mod to the AIO
