XVM Version

XVM Version Screenshot

10/15/2016 – Updated KISS Crosshairs V2, Harpoon, White Crash skins

10/9/2016 – Updated Grandpa’s Audio, reduced volume and added multiple sixth sense options

  • I updated KISS AIO and since I only used two features of PMOD, I have replaced it with two options PMOD or No PMOD. You can use either option, BUT you must install the option of your choice after installing KISS AIO.
  • Download the archive (zip), move/copy the res_mods folder in the archive into the game folder
  • In the Options folder within the archive (zip), select either PMOD or No PMOD options
    • If PMOD, copy/move the scripts folder into the res_mods/x.x.x folder, where x.x.x is the current game version
    • If No PMOD, copy the res_mods folder into the game folder
    • Either option adds after session stats and sniper zoom.  PMOD contains addition features not used by KISS and is for those that are used to the “older” version of KISS AIO
  • Then install either KISS XVM or NO XVM from below

10/8/2016 – Updated

  • Damage Panels with National Images, Americas, Europe, Other.  Added repair timer for modules
  • Grandpa’s Voices Mod, finally got my old voice mod working in 0.9.16.  Has voices from Duke Nukem, Minnions, Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead and some female voices. Includes gun reloaded notification

10/7/2016 PM – Following updated:

  • KISS AIO – updated no fog, max plane.
  • KISS XVM – updated to XVM

10/7/2016 – Following updated

  • KISS XVM – updated to make configuration change to DamageLog/Option2 for using XVM HitLog, please see link below to make WG in game settings for new features.

WG made a lot of changes to the interface in 0.9.16.  As a result, there are numerous options that can impact which mods you may want to use.  This is especially true in KISS AIO and KISS XVM. I have posted some new instructions in KISS AIO and XVM Updates to assist in determining which configuration changes you may want to make.

10/6/2016 – since 0.9.16 went live, KISS has been crashing in XVM.  Took me awhile to narrow it down as KISS AIO worked fine without XVM and XVM worked fine without KISS AIO.  Finally discovered it was the Premium Hangar mod that was causing teh failure.  So the new KISS AIO is without the hangar mod.  If you hve the mod from Oct 4 and don’t want to re download, delete res_mods/0.9.16/spaces, system, and content to get rid of the hangar mod. New upload has a working Premium for Normal hangar mod.

0.9.15 Updates

Published by:

Looks like about everything is working in 0.9.15 CT.  Custom icons needed an update to the new tanks and the advanced.swf changed, that is complete, but will have to await release before posting as it is not backward compatible.


  • The biggest change I see is that on with 30-40ms ping, I get 50-60 FPS.  On 0.9.15 with 200ms ping, I get 110-120 FPS, so they have really optimized it.
  • XVM has added some additional options.  You can read the change log to see what they are, but I have them turned off, since they added nothing I needed.  They can be turned on in the battle.xc config file
  • The only new skins I have so far are the Grille 15 (replacement for the WT E-100) and the new AMX 13-90 in HD.  Others will follow slowly.

Grandpa’s AUDIO mod is no longer working in 0.9.14. I will be working to move it over to the new engine, but its going to be a slow process.
