I tired to get a simple answer

Can you tell me where game center update files are located so that I can delete those files? 


I got a response from WG Tech support on the question

Hi FlakValleyExpress,


Thank you for contacting Wargaming Support! We appreciate the time and effort that you have spent in creating a ticket regarding this matter. All the files that are downloaded for Wargaming are located at Local Disk C > Games. However, if you accidentally delete files that are important, it might mess up the game that you are playing. Let us know how it goes. If you have any other concerns, you may visit our Frequently Asked Questions page. Have a wonderful day ahead.


Best regards,

Wargaming America Support


In other words hands off the software, don't delete anything. Well we all know where WG normally put the update files for WoWP

However where do the put the WGC files since this is a separate process. I found them located here

C:\Program Files (x86)\Wargaming.net\GameCenter\


To proceed further for the update files I went to the update directory.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Wargaming.net\GameCenter\updates


But when I went into that directory it was empty. Now I know there was few updates since 12/23/2017, so those files should still be there. I then look into the log files

It appears that the WGC process has a clean up routine that once an update is done. It deletes those WGC update files. Now this process does not delete the regular WoWP update files, only the WGC updates. For those, you will have to do those manually yourself. I thought I would let our community know as a FYI

i.e. only WGC is smart enough to clean up its own update process...the games will have to be done the ancient way, *per usual*...:sceptic:

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