Windows Compatibility Mode for Windows 7 is the only option that works for installing the the Wargamming Game Console on Windows 10. Thanks Wargamming for wasting several hours of my time! This work around should have been put up as a FAQ on the support page.

The game center has it's own settings tab.

Ahh ok, thanks. I tried it for a while then switched back to the old loader.

You gotta remember, what they call "gift planes" and what I call "gift planes" are two different meanings.  To me, getting a "gift plane" means I log on and I immediately see a new plane and hangar bay in my stable with a notice or message saying "You've received your gift."  Now I haven't gotten this cluster of a game center installed yet....so don't know for sure, but if it's anything like the last few times they claim you get a gift plane.....it's actually not.  It's a reward plane.  You need to successfully complete whatever missions they deem fit, then, and only then do you receive the plane as a reward.  Perhaps they should quit calling them "gift planes" for surely they are not.

 

We have gotten a few gift planes in the past, but not lately.....and having to spend hours on successfully completing missions is not a gift, it's a reward.

Wargaming.net Game Center is Coming!​     ...and I'm not playing.

Wargaming's cram-it-down-their-throats approach to this new piece of software is truly off putting.

Still no luck on my laptop with Windows 7. The game center installs fine but fails to load any update to the games even with the firewall turned off.

 

Is there a way to run the game without the game center? 


WoWS Alpha Tester - I am looking forward to meeting you on the high seas!

Mine is still installing.  We'll see how it works after completion.  I used the WOWplauncher.exe like I've used for years for all updates.  This tried to install the wargaming.net gaming center......and it did.  I wish I could bypass this install,  apparently not.  It installed but it would NOT detect my game.  so uninstalled it and tried again.........same thing, installed, didn't detect my game. 

 

Finally downloaded the stand alone installer (on page 1 of this thread).....and bypassed the WOWplauncher.exe completely.  Installed it again, this time it did detect my installed game, and "imported" it into it's database.  Then it lit up a message saying UPDATE avail.....so now I'm  patching it.  6.5GB.

 

Turned OFF all auto updates and I'll see if it's possible to bypass the gaming center to start when my patch is complete.  Looks like this will take awhile. 

 

Hopefully this didn't screw up the old launcher which allowed me to play on the NA, EU and RU servers using the same client.

If it is not going to work without workarounds or granting admin privileges then WG you need to fix it before you cram it down our collective throats . Got any other way that you care to thin the meager ranks ????

This just in from WG support in regard to the mysterious gift planes question.

 

I apologize for the confusion. These gift planes are technically gift for the new patch update, not gift for each players. You will still have to buy them in the shop for you to be able to use it. 

 

So if they want you to buy it in the shop later on, then why are they saying that they are gift planes or is it gifts for the few and the many have to wait. To me a gift plane is something that they give you. Yes, I have the reward planes for the other missions and wholly agree that is the best and fairest way to do things with "gift" planes, but to bait one along with "gifts" where the only gift you are getting is the money you give to WG for something they led you on with a "free".

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!

 

News Link Here

 

Already have it with my ASIA account (you know tanks and ships) even shows WoWp. But now I have to have a 2nd one for WoWp.

"Transfer to ASIA" they said....."better service"  they said :facepalm:

 

Any answer on how players who have it already with their ASIA account are meant to set this up or is it dead and buried game?

Ok, my patch finally completed.  I turned off all game center updates, ended it running in the background and went back to the usual way to play (using the old exe file), I can still play on all the servers.

However, this patch deleted or overwrote all my options/preferences so nothing was setup the way I liked it.....that first dogfight was hectic, all the ranges were off, no instruments or attitude indicators......nothing. 

 

So back up your preferences.xml if you can

ASK THE DEVS OF STAR TREK ONLINE WHY I DONT PLAY THAT GAME ANYMORE... THE FORCED THEIR LAUNCHER PLATFORM 'ARC' ON PLAYERS.

TANKS SUCKED, SHIPS PROBABLY SUCKS, PLANES USED TO BE GOOD BUT I HARDLY PLAYED ANYMORE BECAUSE OF THE MECHANIC THAT MAKES YOU MISS SHOTS YOU WOULD NEVER, WHEN YOU  SHOOT AT  HUMAN PLAYERS, COMBINED WITH LOPSIDED MATCH MAKING AND [edited]BOTS.

IM SICK OF WOWP MINIMIZING OTHER PROGRAMS IM RUNNING TO PROMPT ME TO UPDATE PROGRAMS I NO LONGER CARE ABOUT. TO THE RECYCLE BIN WITH YOU

 

I HAD SOME GOOD TIMES IN THIS GAME BACK IN THE DAY, BUT NO LONGER...

TCHUSS

If you are running windows 10 - Run the installer in Windows 7 compatibility mode as administrator

I had no issues using Windows 10 (plain OS no third party security apps). I didn't need to run the installer in Windows 7 compatible mode. Is this something Windows can detect automatically if you haven't made any changes to the standard configuration ?

It wasn't  a matter of needing to run the installer in Win7 compatibility mode as most people had no issues running it in Win10, I think it was just that some peoples systems were getting hung up for whatever reason & using the compatibility mode was just a workaround.

Like all the guys on ships that dont even have it yet....rage quit!

The game runs horrible now,ping over 90 and lag so bad you may see your plane fly backwards if you fly tonight.

This may have worked on beta test with 2 dozen testers but not with close to 500 people.

on my machine the launcher links to WOWP NA and WOT SEA, but then again I never had WOT NA installed,

overall the launcher seems to work fine
