P-MOD and Making Configuration Changes


P-MOD: P-MOD allows you to configure multiple mods from one install.  the configuration files are at res_mods/x.x.x/scripts/client/gui/mods/mod_pmod/*.json.  They have the following possible options and is remarked in English for ease of change.  Open files with Notepad ++. Grandpa’s default settings are shown as [on/off] .  Along with a short description of possible changes.

The configuration files are found at  res_mods/x.x.x/scripts/client/gui/mods/mod_pmod/*.json.

Multiple (extended) configuration files are used since 0.9.13 in order to make it easier for the user to make changes in my configurations.  The extended configuration files are named appropriately with the function they control, so finding the place to make changes is easy.  In addition I have made two files for some configurations, based on the FAQ of how to change these options. Examples below.

No Scroll – this turns OFF the ability to scroll into sniper mode using the mouse wheel.  I don’t like to scroll so I turn it off, others use it and want it on.

To change,

  • find the noScroll.json file and rename it noScroll_ON.json
  • rename the noScroll_OFF.json to noScroll.json
  • done

Old Server Crosshair – allows the use of both the arcade and server crosshair simultaneously.  Must turn on “Use Server Crosshair” in game options

To change,

  • find the oldServerCrosshair.json file and rename it oldServerCrosshair_ON.json
  • rename the oldServerCrosshair_OFF.json to oldServerCrosshair.json
  • done

TD Brake Remover – removes the parking brake in sniper mode for TDs.

To change,

  • find the TDBrakeRemover.json file and rename it TDBrakeRemover_ON.json
  • rename the TDBrakeRemover_OFF.json to TDBrakeRemover.json
  • done

Hi, i have changed values before but never with pmod. Using the guide I get to the directory res_mods/x.x.x/scripts/client/gui/mods/ but mod_pmod/*.json is not there. the only .json file there is mod_safeShot_extended.json all of the others are .pyc …. and I double checked explorer is showing hidden, just in case.
