Stop trying to force people to install this new launcher. I don't need it to run the game and the game is constantly trying to force an update that installs it!

 

If it continues I will simply uninstall WOWP!

 

Every time I boot up or time expires it tries to force the install!

calm down apparently you can stop these downloads at the launcher page left side ; settings updates un check the two boxes you should be good to go

Yeah on the setting (left hand side of the launcher) you can disable all that stuff.

But it still runs in the background unless you close it from your task bar.

 

I'm really not a fan of having to do that every time i decide to log in.

The new launcher is fine, I have had it for a while now.  I prefer it instead of having to open 3 different individual launchers just to see if the game needs an update.

 

Many publishers are going or already uses launchers, Blizzard, My.com, Ubisoft, EA/Origin, to name a few.

I did all that and still get the game stuttering all the time now. and my internet speed is fine.

They obviously didn't test this much as it will not work with razer cortex either which I tried installing a dozen times to see if it would stop the stuttering and it throws a driver update code even though they are all up to date.

So it's pretty well unplayable for me now,wasted all last night and a lot of yesterday trying to fix it to no avail.

There's still a lot of folks who dont post on the forums but cant even log on now since this new launcher.

So they just lost another paying customer.

And a few on ships too by the looks of it.http://forum.worldof...st__140#topmost

I tried to log into WOWP  today, but it says I have to install this Game Center application to play. 

 

I found no way to get into WOWP as the (PLAY) button is an (INSTALL) Game Center button.

 

I don't want a Game Center. So essentially I can't play World of Warplanes anymore? Is this correct?

 

Why does it keep popping up trying to get me to install it everyday?  Man o' man that's annoying. I mean... I should be able to click (No Thanks) and continue as I have for years shouldn't I?

Unfortunately it is mandatory now.

You need it to start the game.

Have you tried bypassing the launcher by running WoWP directly from the .exe?

You only need the launcher to update the game client. After that tho, you can just run it from the wowp.exe and bypass it completely.

Then you don't have to have the launcher always running in the background.

Thanks,I'll give that a try after I try a couple other things. I did the diagnostic and repair thing it had so will see what happens.

Make sure the launcher isn't running in your task bar too. If it is, just right click it and close it out.

Even if you're in-game it doesn't need to be running in the background.

 

To me, the new launcher is just as annoying as Windows 10 is.

So much junk that you just don't need or want.

Oh the heck with it. I'll Warplane some other time when they have it all  lined out.

 

Zapperguy thanks for the link though.

 

I only get a few hours to goof about on the weekends, and there's other stuff to play without going into files and stuff.

Us really old guys hate that crap..lol

 

Later,

You need the game center to update the clients now.

It acts as a universal updater for all the clients and there's just no way around installing it. 

 

But once you have it installed, and un-check all of the default settings, it's very easy to bypass.

Then you only need to run it, when there is an update/patch.

But I log into World of Tanks and World of Warships without a Game Center?

So Warplanes is Game Center Beta Test? probably due to small population that may get annoyed if it glitches, then once the bugs are worked out and it's Solid State they will release for the other two?

 

I'll wait till it's load and play, rather than load, click this , delete that, put this line of code here, etc. 

 

I'm not giving up on Warplanes I just don't want to deal with what others are complaining about.. lol.

 

Like right now, I'm checking in between rounds of Warships. So there are options till it's worked out :playing:

 

Anyway, it's game logoff time, funs over. Now it's back to household duties.

 

Again thanks everyone.

 

 

Ps. ok I'm playing one more round in a ship I forgot, then its back to household duties..

WoT actually did the bulk of the beta testing for the new launcher.

But WoWP has the first live mandatory version.

 

In the next few days/weeks all of the clients will be in the same boat as planes.
