I've had it with waiting 3 years for QuickyBaby to release his version of the XVM Modpack every time a new patch comes out.
I want to learn to set it up myself, and to my liking.

Can someone explain to me how to do this, or at least point me to a page with detailed explanation in English?

Thanks.

Easiest way is to make a copy of the QB mod folder res_mods/config/xvm/default.

That folder contains all the files QB has altered for his xvm version.

 

Once you have that saved to another location, just download the latest xvm version from the xvm site every time and just copy back the default folder. So you have the latest xvm version but with QB changes.

Why is that ? its probably the most stripped down version of xvm there is.

It's often late and broken, micro patches also seem to break it, I find with others I've tried they are stable or get fixed quickly.

Thats why I gave the OP the default map tip. That way you dont need QB anymore, but can update it yourself on the day of XVM release.

First time I've installed this mod, and spent ~30 minutes on setting it up...

My game looks like a Chinese market street.

What have I done...

I will have to carefully reinstall everything... This is too much  :(

Yes, perfect question, and you've come to the right place, too.

 

Do it like this:

1.) Search for information.

2.) Process what you've found.

3.) Profit.

 

You can do it!

Good luck!

I wouldnt bother with XVM, nothing makes the game more toxic than XVM.   I've been and XVM free since 2015. and a lot happier for it.   Playing vanilla is the new black.

 

Now I cant tell if the sides are one sided at the start. I just play and shoot stuff. I just no longer get triggered.

That is not true of course. It is not XVM who makes it toxic it are the players who can not handle the information they get who make it toxic.

This is  a little bit of hairsplitting but XVM isn't toxic in it self. You can use it without the stats enabled as I did for a long while before the minimap circles where implemented in vanilla.

So the root cause is still XVM then... Players can't get toxic about info they receive if they never receive it in the first place.

So you saying without XVM the people would still be as toxic?

 

XVM is a blight on the game and serves only to focus other people. Its a better game without it.

The root are the players imho. The majority of xvm players isnt toxic at all. If xvm would make it toxic I would also be a toxic muppet.

A lot of the toxic players would be just as toxic without xvm indeed. I see plenty of them who dont even use xvm.

As I've said plenty of times XVM (in game) is a blatant cheat and should be banned.

Listen, I dont want to split hairs or geting into symantics, you are obviously a XVM user

 

Can you explain why they dont use it Grand Battles? or even Clan Wars ?

 

I'll tell why its wrong for the game, Arty using it to focus down a good player instead of looking at a more dire situation on the other side of the map, or a good player knowing the red bot wont angle or even aim at the weak spots.    If you cant see that the information gleamed from XVM makes it toxic then there is no point in contuing this conversation.  You havent provided one good thing about using XVM

 

The OP  has asked for help setting it up his way, there is a few people saying dont bother as it will cause you more frustration than the information you get from it.

 

Its why I dislike QBs streams over others like Skill4U or Orzy/Daki etc, as they are generally vanilla.

 

I bid you good day sir. :)

I dont think its cheating as its available to all, it just should be removed.
