Historical Realism Gun Sounds Mod
NEW WAY OF INSTALLING WHICH SHOULD IMPROVE PERFORMANCE.
Make a backup the audio folder in your res folder.
Extract the res and res_mods folder to your main World of Tanks directory.
For all future sound mods you have to install the .fev and .fsb files to the audio folder in res, or else, the gun sounds will NOT work.
ALSO, if you have installed previous versions of this mod, remove EVERY single file with "weapons" in its name in the audio folder before installing.
This may NOT remove all of the lag you are experiencing, but atleast it should work better!
If you want to change a sound to something else in this mod, then do the following:
1. Go to res_mods/0.x.x/scripts/item_defs/vehicles/[nation of the gun that got the desired sound]/components/guns.xml
2. Search for the gun that got the sound that you want. If you can't find it, go to res/scripts/item_defs/vehicles/[nation of the gun that got the desired sound]/ and open the [tank of the gun].xml with WoT-tools, and search for the line where it specifies the guns and see what it's called, so you can find its string name in the guns.xml. You can get WoT-tools from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?a0s5np8s5yfalk5
3. Find <effects>shot_*x*</effects> and copy shot_*x*
4. Do exactly as step 1. and 2., except that this time you may want to find the gun that you want to change.
5. Find <effects>shot_*y*</effects> and replace shot_*y* with shot_*x*
6. Then you are done!

To change the sound of these guns you have to find the <effects>shot_*y*</effects> of them by simply ALT+F and search effects, and keep clicking "find" untill you will find something like <effects>shot_*y*</effects>. Also, note that there could sometimes(atleast on the Panther II's L71) be that the <effects>shot_*y*</effects> has to be changed on both the stock and the top turret, or else you will just get the changed sound on one turret.
