Hello Pilots!

 

On April 27, 02:00 PT (05:00 ET) we're taking a one-way trip to swap your old planes, ships and tanks launchers for our new Wargaming.net Game Center, a launcher that lets you keep all your Wargaming games in one place! Navigate game news and dynamite deals with ease as you switch between air, sea and land combat and keep your forces on the advance!

Malwarebytes totally hates the Wargaming.net Game Center.  Views the incoming update requests, etc. as malicious.  I tried trusting all the WG URLs, but it still throws violations.  

 

Just FYI, but if you see Malwarebytes issues, it's probably OK, or if you choose to ignore or whatnot, it does not seem to affect game play.

Can confirm. Malwarebytes hates the new center. Tries to block everything.

Lost count of how many people have had issues with this .....

 

I avoided it outright mostly because I don't play Tanks or Warships and have no need for it

 

 

and its patch time and we all know WG likes to update and hide so here's the Warplanes download

Does this mean we will be forced to use the Game Center?  I just uninstalled it after it blew up my install of WoWP.  I won't be reinstalling it.

I have found that when you connect to the internet and open the download centre, it keeps stating that you are not connected to the internet and to try again. When the refresh button is pushed then it decides to connect and download the content. It is a good idea, but they need to do some work on the bugs. It does seem to be updating itself a lot lately. Is that for the new content for the games?

I keep the Game Center page updated but refrain from the use thereof - I enter the game file and launch game from there.

If the Game Center page is not up to date - it will not allow one to launch the game without the required update.

In fact I am unable to install the launcher.

The installation appears as a blank icon in the task bar, then switch off after some seconds.

I'm getting the exact same behavior...

We are being forced to be WG guinea pigs for the new game center, WOT doesn't require the use of it & it should be our choice to use it or not.

What can ~300 of us do?

 

Just think of the uproar it will cause if the same is done to Tanks and Ships...or perhaps it is on the way...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

Both Norton and McAfee also do not like the new Game Center.

I've had problems with it since it was introduced during the most recent CT testing session.

I now simply set up shortcuts on my desktop pointing to the Application files inside the game folders. (one for EU Server, and another for NA Server).

Apparently you now MUST use the Game Center to update.  But as far as running the game through the Game Center, that ship has already sailed, and I shan't be doing so again.

This ^^

 

Once you get the Game Center installed, it will update all of your WG titles.

  1. After everything is updated, close the Game Center (using the X in the upper right isn't enough, kill it in your taskbar as well).
  2. Clear your cache. How? Save this .bat file to your desktop and simply double click it with the game not running and your cache is cleared. Clear Wargaming Cache .Bat file
  3. (optional for mod users only) If you use mods effected by the cacheddb.bin file, check for it and delete or rename it.

 

Create a desktop shortcut with the following as the target: C:\Games\World_of_Warplanes\WorldOfWarplanes.exe   Start in: C:\Games\World_of_Warplanes

 

Use the new shortcut to start the game and bypass the Game Center. As King stated, if you aren't the same version as the server, it won't let you on and will give you a message telling you as much. Simply run the Game Center for updates then repeat steps 1-3. The shortcut you made will continue to work without invoking the Game Center as long as the game is updated.

:honoring:

Exact same issue.  Last time around I was able to install from the downloaded file by running as administrator.  This time around, nothing I will do (including booting into safe mode with networking) will allow me to install.  

 

I get a blank icon in my task bar that disappears after a few seconds.  After that, nothing happens.  I uninstalled WOWP altogether and I cannot even run the full game installer, same results.  

 

Thanks WG!  Pretty much par for the course.

Ok, I found a workaround for Windows 10. I had to use this compatibility mode to get the install to work: " Windows compatibility mode: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)User Account Control:  Run as administrator"
