    wrong crosshair installed

    Well, shucks: I have *never* noticed the big gray "Select Crosshairs" button in the game settings! Sure enough, that's what's necessary to enable the crosshair I installed. FWIW: you have to select the "Type 1" static crosshair to see the Krab V3 crosshair. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, Iceman! HockeyPhool

    wrong crosshair installed

    Thanks for the reply, Iceman. I re-ran the installer with the preview window enabled, and I do not see any instructions like what you mentioned. However, I'll go take a look at in-game settings to see if there are any that make a difference. FWIW: The crosshair that I *do* get is not the WoWS default, nor is it like any of the ones depicted in the modpack installer. :-( HockeyPhool

    wrong crosshair installed

    I have installed the WoWS modpack v7.12.0_05. I selected the Krab v3 crosshair when I installed the modpack, but the crosshair that's actually displayed is something else entirely as shown in the attached screenshot. Is there another mod I chose that's overriding my crosshair choice? I confess that I don't know the WoWS mods nearly as well as I do the WoT mods. I did completely uninstall the modpack and play a game without mods (and saw the default crosshair). I then reinstalled the modpack, played a game, and took the attached screenshot. Thanks!

    No config file for Battle Assistant

    I change it *FROM* middle mouse *TO* 'B" :-)

    No config file for Battle Assistant

    I like to change the activation key from MOUSE2 to KEY_B, for one thing. There are several other options (such as always following the projectile, the key to activate projectile following), but I haven't found good documentation for all that they do.

    Good call, @Quaksen! I just start WoT, quit, and now the config file is present.

    No config file for Battle Assistant

    Thanks, bubs. I'll give that a try this evening. However, I don't agree that it's "easy", because it means I have to remember to edit the configuration in-game every time I update my modpack. With a configuration file on-disk I can have a template with my desired configuration and then use WinMerge to apply my changes to the mod config. I'm already doing that as part of installing the modpack.
  8. For some reason, the installation of the "Battle Assistant" mod does not always leave a configuration file. At one point in the past two days I found the configuration file here: c:\Games\World_of_Tanks\mods\configs\battle_assistant\mod_battle_assistant.txt However, I just installed 1.0.0_06 and there is no configuration file for this mod. I went back and reinstalled 1.0.0_03 and 1.0.0_05 to see if either of those versions left behind the config file, but neither of them did. I can't explain why there *was* a file the other day, and I don't understand the new mod packaging enough to investigate further. I can see in the installer log that the mod *was* installed, and I confirmed that the mod works with the default activation button (MOUSE2). I realize this may not be an issue with Aslain's installer but with the original mod. I cannot find any way to contact the mod authors on the Armor Inspector website or I would raise the issue with them as well. Aslains_WoT_Logs.zip
  9. Thanks for reminding me that I have Malwarebytes running. I just added 'res_mods/configs' as an exclusion and will see if that resolves the issue over the next few modpack installs.
  10. I cannot install WoT modpack v9.19.1_09. After selecting options and beginning the installation, the installer attempts to extract the binaries 'sed.exe' and 'patch.exe' in the Aslain's XVM configuration folder. It keeps throwing the errors found in the attached screenshots. It's complaining that it cannot rename a file in the destination directory and that the file already exists. I have tried the following without success: Clicking "Ignore". The installation finishes, but not all of the modpack is correctly installed (no carousel configs, tank icons are reversed for enemy team, no hitlog or damagelog, etc). Deleting the existing file, then clicking "Retry". The installer extracts the file but immediately re-throws the same error. Clicking "Abort". The installer rolls back its changes and exits. I'm attaching logs, and am going to install the previous version of the modpack to see if it will still work. I had to attach logs manually because the Archiver app failed because it couldn't reinstall 7za.exe UPDATE: I restarted my computer and was able to install v9.19.1_09 successfully. That's not a pleasant workaround, though> HockeyPhool _Aslains_Installer.log _Aslains_Installer_CompList.log _Aslains_Installer_Extractor.log python.log

    No Heads up display at load up screen or in battle

    The one time it happened it started at battle loading - no pre-battle summary although I could hear the countdown timer.

    Several battles in, no problems.

    I'll do that if it happens again. I have been using that crosshair since 9.17.00 (since J1Mb0's isn't updated). I also reinstalled without "Spotted Vehicle Direction on Aim Circle" and played one match. That match was fine, FWIW
