Another great mod. Way to go! :D

Clicked install..

Side note. You may want to edit your code. It lists your field numbers instead of the "x1" and "x2".

Installed as well... also, your readme for this doesn't seem to match the instructions listed in your post. The readme had me looking for incorrect template files.

Good release! Working great.

field13=X1
field17=X2

Is that correct or is it the other way around?

Either way the graphic is not showing up for me. But, I like the hack thanks!

EDIT:
I got the graphic to work. Dont copy and paste the Xfire styles you have to enter them by hand without the bullets or the graphic will not show up.

Great MOD!
