Suddenly the launcher has started to close automatically after I log into the game.  If this is a bug, please don't get it fixed!  I consider this a beneficial feature, blindfold.

Same here Cap.

Game Center closes after WoWP starts.

Seems like a new thing after small patch today.

I hope it was intentional.  Someone deserves a raise!  :great:

 

That thing sucked memory like mad with no purpose once you launched the game.

There was a Launcher update, I guess this was the major feature.

Its not actually closing completely, only the main window, the TSR thingie is still there.

Presumably saves a bit of GPU resources though which is nice.

hoom is right, it's a feature from the last update. 

Added new Setting that allows minimizing Game Center to tray after starting the Game.

So it's minimized to tray not completely closed.

Tray! Thats the word I was looking for :facepalm:

Took me a couple of other rather longwinded descriptions in the absence of my brain finding the right word to get it down to 'TSR thingie' :hiding:

 

Is there any performance boost metric that came with this?

I know early on people did some testing and found notable performance difference with Gamecenter open vs closed but I've not really bothered to close it myself.

 

It came a quite a shock first couple of times because the minimise to tray happens before the game starts loading & I have the 'Exit Game Center when I close the main window' option enabled so I thought it was a crash or something.

 

Happy to have the option & if there is a performance difference good to have it enabled by default :)

Problem is you can not see where it went ... it turns into a 'hidden icon' so you think it closed down completely. Minimize to taskbar would be better.

Well some of us periodically go to the relevant Windoze setting & set appropriate ones to stay visible...

Wargaming.net Game Center and Wargaming.net Error Monitor are still running in task manager, generally idling and using a little memory, hidden in the taskbar unless you exit manually.

Looks like the game center now has 3 (new) settings ; minimize, don't minimize and exit completely ...
