Prior to posting in comments:
  • Read the full description, your answer may already be here
  • Check out the KISS Forum especially if you are posting about the All-in-One (AIO) the forum is the most appropriate place for posting on the AIO and other Grandpa's mods
  • Read previously posted comments, answers to a lot of questions already there, read at least a couple of pages in


  • Download the archive (.zip)
  • Open the .zip file
  • 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
  • In order to get the "lost" and "dead" vehicles to show and not clutter screen, you MUST install the XVMSymbol fonts. After you unzip the download, look in the res_mods directory, you will see a file XVMSymbol.ttf, right-click wih the mouse and choose Install from the menu

New version 9.1.2 for AIO, now with Mix and match. Check out the Battle Interface Web Post for more details. Important if you are upgrading from an earlier version of the Standard AIO

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.

    @JohnOrion: Go

    The enhanced version does that.. you can look in the DPData.xml file that is config for the hit log on the damage meter in Standard..

    one version of the mod showed the amount of damage, the vehicle and the person who made the hit ... now it only shows the damage and vehicle.. but it no longer shows the person that shot you. I tried to look through the code to add it back in but I only see the "hit log" which shows your hits not the hits received. Does anyone know where the code for the "damage log" so I can try to add the nick of the person who did the damage again?

    I really liked it when I could see 230 (tanks type) Hellcat JoeShmoe Now it only shows 230 (tank type) Hellcat

    This is only somewhat helpful if there are 4 Hellcats .. without the nick you cant tell which of the 4 hit you.

    Hope you can understand the part I'm talking about .. lol dont know the names of the different elements :D

    If it is the vehicle icons then you need to install KISS Style 2 or KISS Style 3 both on Curse to get that icons.. Standard KISS uses Style 1
