How to install World of Tanks + XVM on Ubuntu Linux (Installation Guide)

Recommended Posts

1. Install latest Wine

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine
2. Install dependencies through winetricks

winetricks d3dx9 d3dx9_43 d3dcompiler_43 lucida ie8 msxml6 vcrun2008 wininet
3. Install WoT / Установка WoT

Download EU, NA or RU version installer and execute it.

Also, you can use client installed on windows before.

Note: WoT performance on NTFS partition is lower than on ext* partitons.


4. Install XVM

Download XVM release or nightly build

Extract archive to WoT folder.

Rename [Wot folder]/res_mods/xvm/configs/xvm.xc.sample to xvm.xc


In res_mods/xvm/configs/ rename folder Default to something else (this example uses the koreanrandom).

In res_mods/xvm/configs/ rename file xvm.xc.sample to xvm.xc (i.e. remove the extension .sample)

In res_mods/xvm/configs/xvm.xc (which you've got after renaming) specify the path to your configuration:

${"/koreanrandom/@xvm.xc":"."} instead of the default ${"Default/@xvm.xc":"."}

In res_mods/xvm/configs/koreanrandom/rating.xc change the value of showPlayersStatistics to true (the default is false).
