Inside you will find the res_mods directory. The easy way is just to copy/move the res_mods directory from the .zip file to the World of Tanks main directory and say Yes to Copy and Replace all older files.
Inside the res_mods directory there is a directory /xvm. /xvm directory MUST be under the res_mods directory, NOT in the 0.8.x directory, or XVM will not be configured properly

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.
