GUI Folder



There are only a few files in the gui folder directly. Most of the files are found in the two sub-folders, flash and maps. This article describes the res_mods/0.x.x/gui/flash directory and some of the files that it includes.

But first, let’s take a look at what is in the gui folder.

  • avatar_input_handler.xml – defines the zoom levels on the map. Used for the Zoom Map mode (NOT INCLUDED in KISS XVM MOD)
  • messenger.xml – defines the after battle messages you see in the garage. This one shows them in different colors depending on outcome.

Here is an example of the directory listing.


  • battle.swf – is the main program to display the other files during a battle. It defines location of other components. (Part of XVM client)
  • BattleArtefactButtons.swf – displays the artifacts or equipment components
