  3. [Tutorial] UI Mod

    I promised a while back that I would make a tutorial to help people make their own UI mod or to update ones that have been abandoned. This tutorial is aimed at doing a cosmetic UI mod ( such as the outdated one I made here ). It does NOT help with any complex mods that require coding knowledge. In this tutorial, I assume that you know how to use mods and how to install them. I also assume you have some knowledge of an image editing software (such as Photoshop), so you can edit your picture. This tutorial do not show how to actually edit the pictures, but rather how to have them appear in the game. What you will need: Resourcefulness. Not everything is spelled out here. You will need to test and explore things by yourself. Patience. You'll need it. WoWs Unpacker tools JPEXS Flash Decompiler (Free) or Sothink SWF Decompiler ($) Notepad++ (Free) An image editing software, such as Photoshop ($), paint.net (Free) or GIMP (Free) Resourcefulness. I cannot stress this enough. You will need to be able to look things up by yourself and test things out. You will not always find the answer ready for you. Starting tips A good way to find out how things are modded is to download other people’s mods and try to emulate what they do. This will help you figure out how to change some things. Incidentally, this is also how I learned how to do a UI mod. Do not hesitate to ask for help! It is my experience that most modders are happy to help and even provide with modified files when asked properly. However, do not steal their work... Lastly, share the knowledge! Find something new to mod or a new way to do it? Why not share the knowledge so more people can do it? Others will then be even more prone to help you or others when the time comes! The modding community is great, let’s continue this way! Extracting files To start modding, you will need to access the needed files. In World of Warships, almost everything is packed and needs a special unpacker to get access to. MajorRenegade has been very helpful in providing the link to the unpacker here! Major has also kindly added a small tutorial to use the unpacker. You’ll realize that it is very easy to use and allow you to find everything you need. Do note that from now on, I will assume that you have unpacked the files mentioned and needed to make the mod. Backgrounds A lot of things in the UI are very easy to change. For example, most of the background pictures are just jpg or png files that can be swapped. Just find a picture you want to use or craft one in your picture editing software and put them in the right folder. As a small note, when making or picking a background picture, I recommend taking into consideration what will be shown above it. You may not want to use pictures that will catch the attention more than the actual content of the page. Here is a small list of some of what I think most people will want to change first and their location: Tech Tree and Profile Tabs Background /gui/bg/ Maps Loading Screens /gui/maps_bg/ Operations Loading Screens /gui/pve/ Of course, there is a lot more stuff that can be changed easily just by changing the picture. You will have to explore by yourself and find what you need. Commanders Pictures Very similar to the background pictures, changing the commander pictures is done by swapping the picture used. Commanders can be found in /gui/crew_commander/. The “base” subfolder is the actual picture, while the “overlay” one is where the medals of the commander are shown. Base Change the pictures shown to what you want. Each nation has its own set of commanders and some nations have more than others. Special commanders have unique names and they will not be in the “pool” of pictures when recruiting a new commander. Overlay As mentioned above, those are the medals that change depending on the rank/level of the commander. Chances are you will want to change all of them to empty png so that they do not show. Ship Preview /gui/ship_previews/ and /gui/ship_previews_ds/ These two folders are used to change the picture of the ship at the bottom of the screen in Port and in the Tech Tree. The “ds” folder is used for the gray’d out pictures of ship you have not unlocked yet in the Tech Tree. These are very easy to change since you only need to swap the picture for the one you made. ship_previews_ds is a darken version of the picture that is used on unresearched ship in the tech tree To help you find the proper picture you can find a list of all the ship at the root of the unpacker, file named contentPackages.xml. However, below are the basic rules for the IDs to help you identify what you’re looking for (please note that some ships, mostly older ones, do not follow those rules). Alternatively, you can use the text file (global.mo) to find the corresponding ID. Ship Icons /gui/ship_icons/ /gui/ship_dead_icons/ /gui/ship_own_icons/ Ship Icons are very similar to Ship Previews. They have the same IDs and you only need to change the pictures to have them work. However, there is 3 sets of icons. The basic “ship_icons” folder is the one with the grey silhouette. They are the ones you see on the roster during battle and in port when using the compact carousel mode. The “ship_dead_icons” are obviously used for dead ship. Lastly, the “ship_own_icons” are used to identify the player, with the gold color. In some cases, when adding text to the icons for example, you will want to keep the icons from flipping in battles. To do this, you will need to mod a few xml files that can be found in /gui/unbound/. battle_loading.xml battle_stats.xml results_screen.xml team_structure.xml I will not go into details about what exactly needs to be changed, because I’m not sure how to explain it. However, I recommend getting an icon mod from an established modder (such as MajorRenegade's or hakabase's) and compare their files with your unmodified ones (using Notepad++). This way, you can see what gets changed and you can understand why they do so. Extra By default, ship icons have different sizes depending on class of ships. However, most Icon mods use similar size rectangle icons. This makes them unaligned in port when using the Compact Carousel. To align them, you need to mod the dock.xml found in the unbound folder. Find these lines and delete them. The icons will now be aligned properly in port! Find these lines and delete them to align ship icons in port. Do note that the line numbers may not be the same as they change everytime this files gets updated. Randomized Loading Screens To change the game loading screens (the ones when you boot up the game, not the battle loading ones), you can download the basic files for it here. All you have to do is change the pictures in the gameloading_res subfolder. When you start the game up, it will pick one of the pictures at random. Randomized Loading Screen Download Note: I did not make this and was provide by WG a while back. I did not find the original link so I'm hosting the files I used. Flash Files This is where the more “complicated” work starts. You will first needto get JPEXS Flash Decompiler, which is free. This will allow you to open the swf files and change the pictures in it. All the flash files are found in /gui/flash/. Basic JPEXS tutorial Open the swf file with JPEXS. Go in the “images” folder of the swf Locate the picture you want to edit Right-click on it and select “Export selection”. Save as PNG where you want. Edit the picture and save it as PNG again In JPEXS, right-click the picture again and select “Replace…” Select you edited picture. Save This is pretty much all there is to it. You export the pictures you want to mod. You do any editing you want to do and then you import the modded ones back in. Lossless2 vs JPEG3 JPEXS does a great job, but for some reason, it is not compatible with JPEG3 compression. This means that if you try to change JPEG3 pictures in it, they will break and not appear properly. To change those pictures, we have to use a special trick… Export and edit the picture normally Put the swf file and the picture in the PJEXS folder. It needs to be in the same location as the “ffdec.bat” file. Shift + Right-click in the folder and select Open command prompt ffdec.bat -replace filename.swf filename.swf # #.png lossless2 Hit enter Example: To change picture 529 (Clan battle icon in this example) in the service_lib.swf file, export it and mod it as wanted. Put service_lib.swf and 529.png in the PJEXS folder. Shift+Right-click in the folder and Open Command Prompt. Write ffdec.bat -replace service_lib.swf service_lib.swf 529 529.png lossless2 Hit Enter. You can open the service_lib.swf file and check the change. The file is now ready to use! There is an alternative to JPEXS that can deal with JPEG3 compression fine without using any of the coding trick. Sothink SWF Decompiler is another decompiler, however it is NOT free. So you guys can see if you think it is worth getting. Flash files of interest hud_lib.swf Contains many of the in-battle icons and the ribbons. lobby_graphics_lib.swf This is where the Port header is located. login.swf Contains the blurry background of the WoWs logo in the login screen (that red picture). options.swf Not whole lot in this one, but it contains the items found in the option screen. service_lib.swf This is the big file. It contains almost everything related to the UI in Port. Ressource List of modding tutorials NA Modding tutorial section EU Modding tutorial section
  4. Olá a todos, bem vindos ao guia geral de contratorpedeiros! Como base vou tomar o jogo em seu estado atual (, e atualizando a medida que as coisas forem evoluindo. Objetivo deste guia é mostrar os papeis mais gerais e builds específicas para DDs, dividindo eles de acordo com sua funcionalidade, mostrando builds recomendadas de capitão e oferecer exemplos de navios que desempenham certos papeis. O Básico sobre Contratorpedeiros (DD): No geral, DDs são uma classe de navios que possui um ocultamento excelente* e possui em seu arsenal torpedos, velocidade* e manobrabilidade*. Você deve ter notado os asteriscos, toda vez que colocar eles quer dizer que há exceções a regra, mas não se preocupe ainda. DDs são scouts*, com capacidades de detectar navios, contestar caps, combater DDs inimigos e lançar ataques ocultos contra navios capitais (Encouraçados, Porta-Aviões, etc). Esses são papeis básicos de todo o DD, e no geral seguir essas regras vai ajudar e muito a sua equipe assim como a você melhorar sua jogabilidade. Nem todos os DDs nascem iguais... Então, eu tinha dito dos asteriscos, certo? Pois é, nem todos os DDs são iguais em sua jogabilidade, e alguns jogam de forma tão distinta que os torna muito diferentes dos demais. Para ajudar o entendimento e evitar que tenhamos que falar de todos os DDs do jogo e suas características em detalhes, podemos classificar eles de acordo com seus traços gerais e como fazer melhor uso das características de cada navio dentro de sua build. Apresentando o gráfico. Para ajudar o entendimento, elaborei este gráfico simples que divide em dois eixos: tipo de armamento mais eficiente e distância ideal de combate. A ideia dele é trazer uma ideia geral de onde DDs em geral acabam por cair e ajudar a explicar a diferenças nas builds de cada navio. "Livnick, isso quer dizer que meu DD só pode cumprir este papel?" Minha reposta para isso seria "não". No geral, os exemplos que darei são de DDs melhor adaptados para certas tarefas, mas isso não significa que sejam incapazes de fazer qualquer outra coisa. Leitura de jogo e posicionamento são fundamentais para o sucesso de um DD, e se isso quer dizer que você vê uma oportunidade de virar uma cap com seu Khabarovsk, faça isso. Bem simples, não é? Agora vamos colocar os DDs de acordo com suas características dentro do gráfico. Contestadores de Cap (Cappers): Ainda que o papel geral de um DD seja tomar controle de um objetivo, existem aqueles que são melhor equipados para esta tarefa do que outros. No geral são DDs que possui a vantagem em combates em curta distância e tem a artilharia para enfrentar qualquer DD que tente contestar o ponto de captura. As vezes eles possuem consumíveis (hidroacustica ou radar) que trazem uma vantagem sobre o oponente o que os torna mais eficazes em virar caps para sua equipe. Exemplos: Z-52, Lo Yang, Z-39, Black, Akizuki. Ao jogar com um deles exerça o controle da cap e use suas ferramentas para afastar qualquer tentativa de contestação de cap por parte de DDs da equipe adversária. Build Genérica Torpedeiros (Torpedo-Boats): São DDs com excelente ocultamento e letal armamento de torpedos, geralmente com alcance e recarga decentes, capazes de danificar ou forçar reparo em Battleships ou mesmo sem acertar algum torpedo forçarem o adversário a se reposicionar, favorecendo sua equipe. São comumente vistos como DDs negadores de espaço, por conta do volume de torpedos que podem ser lançados em um curto espaço de tempo em certas áreas do mapa. Exemplos: Shimakaze, Shiratsuyu, Asashio, Yugumo. Ao jogar com estes navios, use de seu ocultamento para se posicionar em locais vantajosos para você e sua equipe (canto do mapa não é local vantajoso), detecte navios inimigos, leia a equipe inimiga e reconheça quando eles começarem a avançar em um corredor e encha a posição de torpedos. Depois disso espere e veja seu indicador de hits de torpedo e seu indicador de dano causado aumentando :) Build Genérica Contratorpedeiros Artilheiros (Artillery DDs): São Contratorpedeiros com excelentes canhões, balística de longa distância e velocidade, enquanto abre mão de seu ocultamento e torpedos. São aqueles muitas vezes vistos como os mais egoístas, mas para ser justo eles cumprem um papel importante. Geralmente ficam nos flancos, constantemente disparando em mar aberto e causando incêndios com seu armamento PE (HE). Com isso, eles acabam atraindo para si muito fogo inimigo, e permite que sua equipe possa concentrar fogo no oponente sem se preocupar tanto com fogo de retorno. São DDs que "farmam" medalhas como "Secador" , "Calibre Grosso" e "Confederado", ainda que não contribuam tanto para capturar objetivos. Exemplos: Khabarovsk, Udaloi, Tashkent, Minsk, Kiev. Ao jogar com eles, seu objetivo é causar a maior quantidade de dano possível em battleships, enquanto mantendo distância. Geralmente não são navios que gostam de combates de curta distância e por isso o ideal é evitar combates assim fazendo o famoso "kitting". Build Genérica Contratorpedeiros de Suporte (Support DDs): São contratorpedeiros que jogam em sinergia com a equipe, e oferecem grande ajuda quando combinados com outros DDs. Eles apoiam DDs ao tomar objetivos, usando fumaça e até mesmo com Fogo AA para ajudar a combater ataques aéreos. São DDs que acrescentam muito valor em divisões e não é a toa que são comumente usados por equipes competitivas de World of Warships. Exemplos: Benson, Gearing Mahan, Fletcher, Kidd. Ao jogar com eles, busque ser o jogador que apoia seus teammates. Apoie DDs ao tomar objetivos, use Fumaça para ocultar seus cruzadores. Por geralmente serem navios bem versáteis, enquanto você espera a próxima fumaça, recarregar, detecte oponentes, lance ataques de torpedos, ataque e defenda caps. Build Genérica Build anti-aérea Contratorpedeiros Híbridos (Hybrid DDs): Aqui vale uma nota para contratorpedeiros híbridos, capazes de transitar entre duas categorias, dependendo da build e situação da batalha. São navios que nas mãos corretas podem cumprir essas funções sem muitos problemas. É o famoso "pau para toda obra", bom em quase tudo mas sem ser especialista de nada. Exemplos: Leningrad, Grozovoi. Ao jogar com eles, valorize sua versatilidade e cumpra as funções que sua equipe mais necessita naquele momento. Adapte seus planos de acordo com a batalha e mantenha em mente quais suas prioridades em cada momento. Build Genérica Mas os torpedos Deep-Water? DDs Pan Asiárticos vieram trazendo diversidade ao jogo com um estilo diferente de jogabilidade. Suas fumaças são mais voltadas para uso individual e os torpedos DW são o pesadelo de cruzadores e BBs, mas não para DDs. Por este motivo, tenha em mente que você tem essa desvantagem em um duelo DD x DD. Se use de kitting e evite duelos que te deixem vulnerável a ser atingido por torpedos, já que você não pode torpedear de volta. Como fica o gráfico? No gráfico estarão ao menos 1 representante de cada classe para que você tenha uma melhor ideia de como cada DD costuma se portar em batalha. Bem, espero que o guia ajude a entender melhor o papel e variações de contratorpedeiros dentro de World of Warships. Este guia não é definitivo, pois ainda há elementos que não foram levados mencionados, mas espero que sirvam como linha geral para ajudar a entender melhor como treinar seu capitão de acordo com o navio e estilo de jogo que você quer, assim como ajudar aqueles que desejam subir uma linha mas não sabem bem como jogar com os navios da linha. Obrigado pela leitura, e tenha um ótimo dia!
  5. Hey all. I have started to put together some guide videos on how to improve. Hopefully the community will enjoy them and they help out in anyway. The first one is "What to shoot and When", a look at ammunition choices at a given target. To be honest, the audio quality isn't great due to some major hardware issues, but these have since been corrected. I would remake this video, but unfortunately the raw footage was lost to me. The Second in the series is "Map Awareness", taking a look at how to use what the mini map shows you to your advantage. All hardware issues were resolved with this one so I'm hoping its up to scratch. Part 3. How to (Ab)Use Terrain to Your Advantage. Those bits of land in your way, what use are they to you? This vid will hopefully help you to use, and abuse the terrain to help you stay alive and sink red ships. I will be adding more to this series as i make them. Hope you enjoy, and feel free to leave any comments. Vossie
  6. It is my hope that this guide will help some players out there that might be struggling to reach the level. Even if you are that "good" player, this is a good checklist to go over if you are in a rut to make sure you are doing the things you need to be doing. Or, you can pass it on to others in need of help. This is neither definitive not complete, and I hope to expand on it in the future.
  7. Hi everyone. there is a easy way can let you observe the ship at very close distance. or a far place to see a different scenario. preview: Method: --1 Copy camerasConsumer.xml from res\ to res_mods\\ --2 Edit camerasConsumer.xml with text editor. around line 895 to 900. Left side is original value, right side is modified value. 1st value --> decrease the value will be more closer to the ship 2nd value --> less the value will keep distance not too long when you rotate the mouse's wheel. 3rd value --> increase the value will be far away the ship. --3 Save camerasConsumer.xml Have Fun! If you are interested in camera setting, please refer to @leehwongxing thread, he has more advance, more precisely settings.
  8. I Primarily loaded PTS 0.7.0 to try out the training room. The first thing I noticed under game modes was a second new mode "Introductory Mission" (which I didn't recall seeing in the patch notes) and decided to give that a try since I think some "live" training (as opposed to watching videos) is needed for the new players. Here's my comments. In WoT there is a pretty good introductory mission that walks someone driving a tank through the controls and how to move/aim/shoot. I would recommend that the WoWS developers load WoT and go through that mission to get an idea of what a really good introductory mission is (and what they're goal should be in the WoWS introductory mission). This mode is severely lacking in information that helps explain how to maneuver and attack - there were only two instructions that were displayed: 1) Press W to move forward. 2) Use RMB to look around. After capturing Zone A, a third instruction was displayed about "leading" the target. But that wasn't very helpful as there was no help in how to determine this and nothing about zooming in/out. For example, shell timer and the reticule could be explained AND also how the target's speed can be estimated (by looking at it's smoke trail). To help perhaps a combination of an observer mode (game AI zooms in, aims and shoots with text explaining too much, too little, and just right amount of leading - and some guidance on where to HIT a ship). Since the game has torpedoes, it would also be good to have either a multi-stage mission where after completing basics of shell firing that there was another to practice torpedo attacks. The tutorial right now either is very incomplete or if complete then it assumes a fair amount of information and knowledge already about how to play (and then you wouldn't need the introductory mission other than the show the mechanics of "scenario" battles). Also the ships I was escorting kept firing at the rocks on the islands but there were no shore batteries that I could see. There were also return fire shells arcing overhead from somewhere.

  12. This tutorial is aimed mostly at people who already have some experience with creating mods for WoWS client but are stumped by the changes released in the most recent 0.6.13 patch. So, what gives? A single quizzical (and ultimately useless) line blurb about something that pretty much turned the sound mods upside their heads. Moreover, whoever translated this from Russian patch notes introduced a mistake. It's not "a control.xml file", it is supposed to read "a control(ler) XML file". Subtle but big difference. Especially since the file is supposed to be named mod.xml. Which we only find out after digging around the clients packed files. So what actually happened? Well, those familiar with sound mod structure before 0.6.13 will know that the audio files were organized into a strict but complex directory which described what file is supposed to be played for what event (voice and sfx included). The structure worked, but was a fair bit of a pain to maintain, because folders typically were two-three levels deep and contained just a handful of files per folder on the deepest level. For example, Mermaid's Wrath for 0.6.12 client contained 646 files in 328 folders. That's on average about 1 folder per 2 files. Yikes! In 0.6.13 Wargaming moved away from the folder structure (thank gods), and decided to have an XML file to keep check of which file goes where. XML is a pretty simple and straightforward format, which most people related to programming in one way or another should be well familiar with. And now the sound files ended up all lumped into one directory, with the XML file telling client what it needs to do with them. without this XML file the mod is useless. The XML file looks roughly like this: <?xml version="1.0"?> <AudioModification.xml> <AudioModification> <Name>EN</Name> <ExternalEvent> <Name>Play_GoodHit</Name> <Container> <Name>Voice</Name> <ExternalId>VGoodHit</ExternalId> <Path> <StateList/> <FilesList> <File> <Name>En_Speech_Hit_Confirmation_1.wem</Name> </File> <File> <Name>En_Speech_Hit_Confirmation_2.wem</Name> </File> <File> <Name>En_Speech_Hit_Confirmation_3.wem</Name> </File> <File> <Name>En_Speech_Hit_Confirmation_4.wem</Name> </File> <File> <Name>En_Speech_Hit_Confirmation_5.wem</Name> </File> </FilesList> </Path> </Container> </ExternalEvent> <ExternalEvent> <Name>Play_Last_Hope</Name> <Container> <Name>Voice</Name> <ExternalId>VLast_Hope</ExternalId> <Path> <StateList/> <FilesList> <File> <Name>En_Speech_Last_Hope_1.wem</Name> </File> <File> <Name>En_Speech_Last_Hope_2.wem</Name> </File> </FilesList> </Path> </Container> </ExternalEvent> </AudioModification> </AudioModification.xml> I've taken liberty and shortened it up for you to two elements, but you get the structure. It's reminiscent of the folder structure before, with top level directory entries residing in <ExternalEvent> containers, which sports description of what event it is associated with, sound type (Voice or SFX, in the <Name> tag inside the <Container> tag that resides in the <ExternalEvent>. The <ExternalId> tag describes the specific event type, which roughly corresponds to the second-level folder name "VGoodHit" would be the "GoodHit" folder, and so on. The "V" part signifies that it's Voice type. "S" would be for SFX, I'll get to that part later. Below the two descriptor tags we have the main containers, corresponding to the third level directories in the old folder structures (where applicable, some events did not have this), the <Path> tag. Some events (like "Torpedo_Danger") can have multiple <Path> elements, one for each direction, as it was the case in old folders. <Path> itself contains two final containers: <StateList> and <FilesList>. <FilesList> is pretty much self-explanatory, these are the files associated with particular event and state, each sitting in its own <File> wrapper with filename under <Name> element. <StateList> element, however, is a fair bit more tricky. It can be empty (but it must be present, otherwise the mod will fail) if there are no special conditions, and if there are, it will contain them, one condition per <State> flag. Some <Path> elements can contain multiple conditions, such as, for example, plane squadron IDs: <Path> <StateList> <State> <Name>Plane_Type</Name> <Value>Torpedo</Value> </State> <State> <Name>PlaneID</Name> <Value>id5</Value> </State> </StateList> <FilesList> <File> <Name>En_Speech_Pilots_Torpedo_ID_5.wem</Name> </File> </FilesList> </Path> In order for the event to play, all the conditions must be matched. So it's a logical AND. There can also be special conditions, such as crew member names for voiceovers specific to special captains (the ARP/HSF ones, Steven Seagal, etc.). One special note on the <File> element, the <Name> can contain relative path to a file in a subdirectory relative to the mod.xml or the mod's root directory. Path separator should be "/" (forward slash). Omitting a specific <ExternalId> and/or <State> for an event will result in default voiceover/sound playing for it. If an event is specified, but none of the files provided are found in the directory, default sound will be played. I know some modders embraced this similarity between the XML structure and folder structure in order to make tools for automatic mod.xml file generation. But I, personally, embraced the ability to not have gazillion of folders inside and reorganized Mermaid's Wrath into a much more handleable directory structure. I've also made a tool of my own to facilitate ease of editing the mod.xml, which I intend to release a bit later once I have it polished up. And finally, Wargaming was nice to include a special descriptor mod.xml file in the client's res/banks folder on the main path, and this file appears to have all of the moddable event names and external IDs, which also includes a lot of SFX events as well, so this tutorial may prove useful for the SFX modders out there as well, who are willing to experiment with these. I'll likely include this functionality in my tool at some point if there's any demand for it. Unfortunately, the event descriptors are all in Russian. Of course, the launch didn't go without its fair share of problems, since the client turned out to be very fickle about the leftover paths, and XML files specifically. Caveats to be aware of: For example, a malformed or wrongly placed (or even non-existant one) mod.xml can easily break not only player mods, but also Wargaming's official voiceovers, such as ARP captain voices. If it is, you can try this workaround first if that happened to your client. The client expects the file to be in ANSI encoding. If you try to feed it a file encoded in UTF-8 with BOM, it'll fail silently. Apparently the much vaunted mp3 support for sound mods is broken, so we're all stuck with the proprietary WEM format for now. MP3 files are recognized, but never play. 0.6.14 changes 0.6.14 has landed! So far no major changes have been spotted. Default languages mod.xml has finally regained parts for module activation/deactivation voiceovers, and that's about it. Looks like the new OP does not have any exposed voice over lines, or any voice overs for that matter. 0.7.0-0.7.2 changes 0.7.0 saw a random disappearance of all Operations tasks voiceovers. Luckily they returned soon in 0.7.1. And as for I have noticed some new voiceover options in the mod.xml, namely some game mode and class specific tips. Stand by for more information on that one! 0.7.2-0.7.5 changes Nothing much happened since last update. The aforementioned game/class tips are still suspiciously absent from being triggered by the client, so no additional info on them so far. Even though the lines are present in default language mod.xml files, at least for Russian and English languages, haven't checked the rest. 0.7.6-0.7.7 changes Starting from 0.7.6 the battle end condition lines found for some HSF captains are now being triggered for all mods who have them set up, so that's some news for you. Here's a code fragment for those wanting to introduce their own lines in their mods for all captains: Also (not confirmed 100% yet), looks like the Torpedo Hit, Main Battery Fire, and Torpedo Fire audio cues are working as well for all, as per some HSF/AzureLane captains: Some extra linkages: mod.xml creator/conversion tool by KinoMyu SoundModCreator (Russian) Guide on converting mp3/wav into wem format (english) Feel free to ask and suggest what I should add to this tutorial.
  13. Before this game gets released to steam, the devs need to take the time to make a PvE tutorial campaign mandatory before PvP content to the game is accessible. The campaign needs to stress the importance of game mechanics i.e. using angling to bounce incoming rounds (of course there's a lot more I could add here) and the roles of the various ship classes. It should do more than just say press W to go forward and and A/D to steer, now go kill some bots! Ultimately, If this game really cared about growing, it needs to teach new players how to not be potatoes and die immediately. Just a thought
  14. CONTEST: Bringing on New Players

    Hello Captains! Welp, it's no real secret that World of Warships is coming to Steam. Soon, we might have an influx of a large number of players. So here's a common thread I see for our current tutorial mode for World of Warships: - The mode doesn't teach players well enough about the game - More advanced mechanics should be taught - "The noobs keep torping allies" - Etc Alright then, YOU HAVE MY EAR. Here is a contest, I want to hear your ideas in order to teach new players about World of Warships. What are your ideas? How can we do better? -Now, I'm not exactly asking anyone to make a bunch of tutorial videos, but if you want to, go for it. -Do you want something like a mentor system? Tell me more about it. -Do you have a grouping of videos you suggest? -Etc So I legitimately want your constructive ideas. At the end of the contest I will submit your ideas up and work with the necessary teams to get it implemented (it doesn't even have to be development related). Your idea won't go unrewarded either. If I pick your idea, you will get: - Enterprise (or doubloon value if you have it) - Scharnhorst (or doubloon value if you have it) - One "Brand New Ship" that isn't released yet, but will be by Contest end - Three Port Slots - 20 x Sci-Fi Camo - The "Coo of Boom" Flag THE RULES Constructive Ideas only. I will personally hide your non-constructive ideas. No insulting other peoples ideas in this thread. That's a bad. You're better than that. Wargaming gains exclusive rights to the contest ideas when you post it on the forum, as outlined in the “11. User Generated Content” section of the Terms of Service. By submitting your entry, you agree to the Wargaming Official Sweepstakes Rules. Any violations of the above rules will disqualify your entry. Also, bear in mind I will be the sole picker of your idea (with some team input). This is hyper-subjective, so please understand that though your idea might be great, it might not be what I'm looking for at the time. DEADLINE: Friday 12/01 at 10:00 AM Pacific Time. I await to hear how the veteran community will help make the new community GIT GUD.
  15. I made a video for noobs

    Feedback please. Feed me your hate.
  16. Thanks to those generous folks who post tutorials and videos I am no longer at the bottom of my team list. Now I'm about the middle and once in a while make the top of the list. I would appreciate your suggestions for how to continue learning how to drive cruisers. I mostly drive the Phoenix and enjoy killing sneaky destroyers and torching fat BBs. While the Phoenix is fragile, I regard that deficit as a learning aid sort of like learning how to kayak in a tippy boat: when you make a mistake there is immediate feedback. Phoenix is a free premium IV cruiser. Its Captain just got promoted to 15 points. Also have St Louis with a 10 point Captain and Omaha with a 3 pointer. Should I leave the 15 pointer in Phoenix and hope that he eventually becomes Elite or is it better to transfer him to another ship? Should I work my way up the US cruiser line or start a different nation's cruisers? If so what line do you recommend for higher level play? Thanks for your advice.
  17. Merely a thought - but how about an option to turn a tutorial or help mode on and off? It'd make new players feel right at home. Wouldn't do anything but... wait no, I'm joking - here's the thought. When switched on a text message would appear somewhere on the display - or even the commander could bark out an order. Let's take broadside to an enemy as an example. And we are speaking in general terms - broadside to an enemy is a bad thing in this game. You are broadside to one more enemies who have the ability to drill you. The ship's commander waits a few seconds then shouts out "We are broadside to an enemy - take evasive action!" or something along those lines. The goal of course? Teach players not to remain broadside to one or more reds long enough to get drilled. Other optional items could be "Our AA is revealing our position!". I'm sure you can all think of additional training phrases - like "We are too far from the enemy - move up!" It's just a thought - because I've seen - and you too no doubt, far too many players who remain broadside to an enemy only to die to them. Maybe this would help?
  18. Heyho! Sharing = Caring and thats why I wanna tell you something that I learned some time ago. This should be a tutorial on the topic of creating flag mods. I've seen quite some people only replacing current flags and always going with the order from WG. This tutorial will show you how to create a flags.dds file like this one (size decreased to 25% of the original size, which was 2048 times 2048 for demonstration purposes) which also works ingame in combination with a new flags.atlas file. Positive side effect: Updating your files will most probably take less time than before because you don't have to edit every flag again and the mod doesn't break so fast and gives you some time to react. Non existing flags in the atlas file just don't get displayed at all on a ship and the rest of the flag shows up wihtout any errors and problems because you changed the position values in the flags.atlas file which overwrites the original WG values which change every time. (so no longer changing national flags, only some missing commorative flags like a new oscar award flag and they do not show up most of the time anyway before you could update the mod) It also requires quite a lot work for the first time but it is worth it. Requirements: Already exisitng new flags.dds file Knowledge in Photoshop (or similar programs which support DDS) Knowledge in Excel (or similar programs) Time The flags.atlas file Let's start with investigating a standard flags.atlas file from WG. The beginning of the atlas file will always look like this: page "flags.dds" 2048 1024 This basically tells the game about the owner of this atlas file. In this case it is a flags.dds file with a size of 2048px times 1024px. An important note would be that the numbers here are very important. They have to be the same size as the DDS file. Otherwise it won't work. Also very important: The numbers should always be 2x where X can be any number at all. so it can be: 2 (21) 4 (22) 8 (23) 16 (24) 32 (25) 64 (26) 128 (27) 256 (28) 512 (29) 1024 (210) 2048 (211) and so on Now let us inspect a "flag element" in the list. Let us just start with "poland" right away "poland" { 0.000000 0.000000 0.098145 0.100586 } But what does each value mean? They basically mean this: "flag name" { positionX positionY positionX positionY } But why do we have 2 postition numbers? Well, the first 2 positions (X & Y) are pointing to the top left corner of the flag and the second X & Y position point to the bottom right corner of the flag. What does this mean for us? This basically means that we can create a simple calculation in Excel or similar programs to create the arrays for us just by providing the top left corner position, the width and the height of an flag which is very easy to do if you have photoshop. I sadly can't offer information on other programs though. The Excel Table: So we create an excel sheet and in my case i created different tabs which consists always only one kind of flag so that it is easier for me to read it. You might use it in the future if you want to sort it a bit. (Like: Signal flags, Ship Flags [which are only obtainable via buying the most expensive bundels], nation flags and so on]) Here an example of how it looks like on my end: Important here: You will enter values at the A,B, C and D colum. The K colum is basically only here to adjust the size if necesarry in the future. That would automatically update the J colum which gives us the necesary arrays for the flags.atlas file. So for now only enter your size into the K colum. K1 = width and K2 = height. Let's begin with the calculations The F colum gets the following calculation in the first row: =($A1/$K$1) The $ means basically that it will always stay like that. In other words: Always use the A colum (absolute) and change the row (relative) if it gets copied downwards the A colum. and divide this value against the value in K1 (this will never change because both are made static via the $ sign, in other words K1 is an absolute reference for the colum and the row) We press enter and see a 0 there. We click on F1 again and see that there is a box at the right bottom corner. We use this box, press and hold the left mouse button and drag it downwards the F row. This will copy the function from above and will only change the row. We repeat this with the following three calculations as well: Enter at G1 the following calculation:=($B1/$K$2)drag and drop it to your desired row. Enter at H1 the following calculation: =(($A1+$C1)/$K$1) drag and drop it again Enter at I1 the follwing calculation: =(($B1+$D1)/$K$2) drag and drop it again. It should look now similar to this table here: Now let us enter the formula for the J row: ="{ " & TEXT($F1;"0,000000") & " " & TEXT($G1;"0,000000") & " " & TEXT($H1;"0,000000") & " " & TEXT($I1;"0,000000") & " }" This will create the text automatically which we need for the flags.atlas file. Drag and drop it again and we are nearly finished now. Using Photoshop to fill the Excel table Open up Photoshop, open up your flags.dds file and choose your rule/ruler tool. This tool is the only thing we need now. So zoom into your flags file and draw a line form the top left corner to the bottom right corner The ruler tool will show some values now (kinda like those) Now we have the X value, the Y value, the Width (B) and the Height (H) [German localization on my pc] We enter the X value in the A colum, the Y value in the B colum, the width in the C colum and the height in the D colum. the result in the J line after doing this will look similar: { 0,484375 0,000000 0,552246 0,050293 } The final thing we need to do is exchanging the "," with a "." and the array is finished for the alpha flag. (if you have a diffrent character than "," exchange it with "." It has to be a "." otherwise your game will crash) We now have basically everything that we need to create our own flags.atlas file which enables us to create our own way of sorting the flags and adding one new flag is now just copy paste into the flag file (adding the correct alpha mask) looking up the 4 values, entering them in Excel and adding them in the flags.atlas file with the correct name and the benefits are in my eyes bigger which justify the work for it. Using the values in the atlas file To use the values we need basically the name of the flag first. for that we open up the atlas and the dds file. We should basiclaly notice that they are kinda sorted. It always goes from top to bottom. Only on the right side it gets a bit confusing with those signal flags. So you shouldn't have any problems at all finding the name of the flag. The alpha flag for example has the name: "tester_alpha" so we add the following line in the flags.atlas file: "tester_alpha" { 0.484375 0.000000 0.552246 0.050293 } and we have the alpha tester flag always on this position now. No changes needed for this flag anymore. Our flags.atlas file should look like this now: Repeat the steps from above, insert all values into the Excel file, copy the values in the J colum, insert it in the flags.atlas file with the correct flag name, exchange the "," with ".", and you will have less problems in the future. And don't forget to always save the excel file. If you have any questions feel free to ask. If you need an example you can always download the latest version from my flag mod here (Pls do not simply reuse my atlas file though) One last thing: I recommend putting the signal flags to the complete left side (like i did in the first picture). They will hardly ever change (except they add one which is hardly ever the case).
  19. Almost dead

    When my ship is almost dead is it better to run and hide or to die gloriously?
  20. Greetings, With the upcoming revamp of PvE scenarios/campaigns sometime this year, I would like to suggest the implementation of a thorough and extensive PvE tutorial campaign, whose completion is needed to unlock the PvP content of the game, via Captain Levels. I think such a tutorial would be of benefit for the whole comunity and if properly developed and implemented, wouldn't be a detriment nor a burden to new players. The campaign must focus heavily and reward critical aspects of the game like comprehension of game mechanics and intended role of ship classes. Feel free to sign in and add your feedback on the topic.

  23. Greetings fellow Skippers! Just got back from deployment, and now that I have access to the interwebs again, eager to start creating videos again. Please feel free to look at some of the other videos I have on my channel, which includes Game-Mechanics guides/Tutorials, Ship Reviews, and Montages like the one below. Feedback is always welcome, and I hope you enjoy!
  24. Greeting Captains, I've been playing World of Warships for a very long time now and is extremely excited when WarGaming introduced the RN's Cruiser. Before we get started, I've gain experience over the span of 8 days grinding the line from Black Swans to Minotaur non-stop to bring you this guide. No free exp from doubloon was used to "cheat" my way to T-X. I'll be analyzing the gameplay style of the cruiser and how you could profit the most out of it. DISCLAIMER: I never said I'am good at these cruiser and other people play style may vary. Also my grammar isn't that great but I hope it's at least readable. Before we get started, let find out if these cruiser is for you. How to effectively maximize your damage: LEANDER - EDINBURGH NEPTUNE MINOTAUR SUMMARY: These cruiser are amazing, the specialized AP shell guarantee penetration at almost extreme angle and the rate of fire is unbelievably fast and fun. While it doesn't have HE, the cruiser makes up for it sheer RoF and DPS with the AP shell. The gameplay will be similar to that of a Russian gunboat without annoying fire. The AA gun on these cruiser are extremely bad at lower tier but will gradually improve each tier. From Tier-VIII and below, the AA gun are self defense. At Tier-IX and above is when you can use it for support. Torpedos are great at end tier those 8km and 10km ranges are good for wide array of purpose. They are capable of single fire, and you can make some weird torpedo pattern. Last of all the lack or armor is the killer of Her Majesty Ships. Luckily for us the smoke and good concealment nullify this problem if use properly. THANK YOU FOR READING THIS GUIDE! This is my first guide so please go easy on me. I might have gotten something wrong but I'am open to fix it and take feedback. I was also thinking of doing a video but as you know, my PC isn't that great with editing and encoding video in my native resolution. I just want to provide my experience to something unique. These RN's CL are really unique to the game and hope these guide help you familiarize with how to use them.
  25. [Tutorial] Como solucionar error “critical error application must exit” Despues de recibir privados, correo, mensajes tanto por el foro, como por eskype y facebook, he decidido explicar a fondo las posibles formas o vias de solucionar dicho error….comencemos. debo aclarar que este error no se debe solo a un problema…. Multiples posibilidades pueden dar como consecuencia este error, y resolveremos las posibilidades de las siguiente manera.es importante que tengas programas herramientas instalados en tu pc como WINRAR, para descomprimir archivos.descarga tu winrar a traves de -> has ckick aqui para descargar winrar1° recomendación.lo mas sensato cuando aparece este error, es ir directamente al nombre de tu tarjeta grafica y buscar su driver/controlador mas reciente para la misma.la siguiente aplicación se llama “everest”, sirve para ver a fondo o profundidad tu computadora puedes descargarla gratis y completa a traves de mi estorage, descargalo y descomprimelo -> has click aqui para descargar Everest si esta aplicación permite muchas opciones más, pero no nos interesan. Una vez ubicado el nombre y modelo de tu placa de video / tarjeta gráfica. Busca dicho driver/controlador en la web del desarrollador/creador de la placa, para asegurarte de que descargaras e instalaras el último driver de tu placa.Si te lo permite el tiempo, también actualiza los driver de tu placa base/tarjeta madre. (Todos)Nota: Hay computadores que trabajan con la integrada de video, por eso es mejor que actualices todos los driver, de tu tarjeta gráfica y de tu tarjeta madre. Mientras más actualizados estén los driver mejor. Recuerda que los controladores vienen siempre en diferentes versiones para los diferentes sistemas operativos, de 32 bits o 64bits, así como el tipo (Xp, 7,8,10,etc en el caso de windows), así que descarga el correcto de tu ordenador.2° Recomendación.Parece mentira, pero a veces el error es por culpa del antivirus. Lo he visto desde el avast hasta el AVG, así que si tu computadora está un poco lenta ya sabes que esta podría ser una de sus causas, un consumo excesivo del antivirus de tus recursos. Se especula que en algunos casos el problema es por el cambio de año, del antivirus (actualización a una nueva versión), otras porque tu software es pirata y ya fue detectado, te minan la computadora de fallas para obligarte a formatear/desinstalar antivirus.Para solucionar ese problema te regalare un antivirus, con licencia LEGAL, no pirata para que te evites problemas 100% funcional y 100% liviano, minimizando el costo de procesos de tu computadora mejorando tu rendimiento entre un 25% y un 75%, este es un regalo mío para TODA mi comunidad de World of Warship Latino América.Descarga, descomprime e instala, instrucciones dentro del archivo RAR -> has click aqui para descargar Antivirus regalo de rex3° Recomendación Es posible que tu problema no sea software sino Hardware, así que tomate tu tiempo destapa tu CPU y limpia todos los componentes de tu ordenador (incluyendo los ventiladores/fan cooler), Si no sabes hacerlo pídele a alguien profesional que lo haga, no querrás dañar algún puerto de tu tarjeta madre o alguno de sus anclajes se estropee.Recuerda revisar la pasta termica del procesador, y la pasta térmica de la placa de video (si usa pasta térmica), si está en mal estado pues cámbiala, los bordes de las tarjetas (los pines por donde se conectan) (tarjetas ram y tarjeta de video) bórrales las puntas con un borra de goma, al pasar un borrador de goma blanco, limpias eficientemente los pines, antes de montar de nuevo las piezas en el ordenador es altamente importante soplarlo (con una sopladora/compresor) y liminar toda la cantidad de polvo posible.No limpiar tu pc, afecta la temperatura interna del sistema… limpiando tu pc cada 3 meses, reduces el daño por altas temperaturas. Si no habías limpiado tu pc en más de 3 meses. Esta opción te mejorara el rendimiento entre un 15% y un 50% en el ordenador.4° Recomendación Los requerimiento mínimos para correr warship, si tu pc aun funciona a carbón, tienes un hámster en una rueda que la mueve para alimentar tu fuente de poder o simplemente no tienes un ordenador sino un fósil viviente, olvídalo nunca tendrás los requerimientos. Para hacer funcionar eficientemente tu ordenador. Pero intentare darte una idea.Lo mínimo en Intel es un Dual core 2.8 ghz de procesador, en amd su equivalente. Seria athlon 64 x2, todo lo superior a esos procesadores mueven eficientemente el warship.RAM mínima 2GB, ram recomendada 4GB o superior.El tamaño del disco duro, NO importa, siempre y cuando te quepa el warship en el.Si tienes integrada de video, de 1GB o superior si tienes tarjeta de video, de 1GB o superior (en algunos casos funciona la 512MB pero son muy pocos casos principalmente con tarjetas nvidia) Recomendación 2GB de video o superior. Es importante que tu velocidad de conexión de internet sea de 1MB mínimo (1024) o superior.Esas son las piezas o requerimientos que determinan si tu computador, puede correr warship, pero debo advertirte mientras más cerca estés del límite de requerimientos más posibilidades tienes de errores, porque con cada actualización los requerimientos del juego van cambiando.5° recomendación Si ya probaste todo lo antes mencionado y tus errores continúan. Pueden deberse a 2 cosas archivos corruptos del cliente, o problemas internos de lenguaje a nivel máquina. Así que Restaura tu cliente al menos una vez y vuelve a probar…..si eso no soluciona, pasa a lo siguiente. Recuerda que al revisar y reparar el cliente puede tomar tiempo, así que por favor se paciente. Te recomiendo auxiliarmente (lo que está en amarillo) agregar la excepción al antivirus, es mejor prevenir que curar.lo del lenguaje maquina es a través de la siguiente aplicación de wargaming:has click aqui para descargar Aplicacion WGDescomprímela y ejecútala como administrador. Te recomiendo apagar tu antivirus para hacer el chequeo y así no interfiere en la lectura de datos.Selecciona el Wows por favor selecciona las mismas opciones que te muestro en la captura, y asegúrate de que este iniciándose en el lugar donde está el cliente instalado, sino tendrás que buscarlo manualmente para que inicie donde está instalado el cliente. una vez echa las revisiones comienza el diagnostico, esto podría tomar unos minutos, mínimo 5, máximo 20, así que se paciente. Una vez terminado te generara un archivo de texto (un reporte)escribirás un ticket a soporte desde aquí-> has click aqui para escribir a soportecrea un nuevo ticket, explica tu problema y en el mismo ticket adjunta tu captura de pantalla con el error y tu archivo generado por la aplicación (reporte) en menos de 24 horas, revisando los comandos arrojados por el reporte, soporte te dirá, que necesitas hacer y cómo solucionarespero esta guía/tutorial te sirva suerte! POST DATA: Recuerda que hay otro driver/programas que tambien pueden ser actualizados como el Framework, el Xfa, etc..... asi que si puedes permitirte divagar por la red y actualizar estos micelanios tu computadora funcionara mejor (luego hare un guia de miselanios) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Atte: Rex Leviathan Shadow NhiteringComunity Contributors.Almirante en jefeWows Lat.Am
