I mainly installed WGC because I wanted to try out WoWp 2.0, and I must say that although I was sceptical to in advance, it actually works very well and has a nice visual look aswell. A few points to improve though:

 

- When pressing the "X"-button (close), please ask the user (or implement it in the settings) whether the user wants the application to minimize to system tray or to fully exit.

 

- There's currently a bug that asks you to add the folders to your installed WG games even though you've already added all games that're connected to WGC. I don't know if you've found the reason for this bug yet, but if it's for any help, I have all 3 World-of-X games installed and then additionally the common test for WoT + WoWs, and also the WoT Sandbox. Maybe the problem here is the common test installations?

 

- When starting WGC you get a black window rectangle for a while until everything has loaded. This gives the feeling of a laggy application, so it would be better if you create the window, keep it hidden until everything has loaded, and then show it when everything is done loading.

 

- The information messages from the repair functionality needs to be more informative. I tried to repair my WoWp installation and the only message I got above the status bar was "checking integrity" for like 5-10 minutes. It gives you the impression that the application has crashed. It would be better if you made the status bar actually show how many bytes that have been checked in comparison to the total, and/or if the message could atleast tell you when it's just checking and when it's actually repairing/replacing bad files.

 

- The repair functionality needs to get better. After I had updated WoWp it kept crashing when starting the game, so I tried to run the repair on WoWp, it took something like 10-15 minutes but WoWp still didn't work. I had to re-install and then it worked.

 

I think that was all :honoring:

Nice if it works, but I hope we won't get forced to use it. I have enough game launchers. WT, Steam, Origin... at least War Thunder could integrate into Steam with some tweaking.

 

I see two problems, however:

 

"Beta" usually means it's not 100% ready, and perhaps should be a limited-release test to scoop out major bugs, not a mass-release on the front page. Here, 'Beta' seems like an excuse in case it messes up something.

Also, I'd be much more keen to check it out if I could switch back at-will.

 

Anyway, can you disable auto-updates for individual games? I'd rather have WoT updates than ships, for example.

 thought I'd give the program a try.
It said my WOT client was corrupted.
I played WOT just fine yesterday.
Program started "repairing" it by downloading 2.5 Go at the cripple speed of 1 Mb/s (I have optical fiber internet).
Said fk it I'll go back to old launcher.
Uninstall WG Gaming center. 
Start WOT. 
This game needs WG gaming center.

GG 11/10 program would ruin my day again, many thanks.

I'm just testing it out as I'm curious, as I wanted to have the sandbox, common test and the regular wot easily avalible, but I can't even add them the the laucher, Beta? more like pre-beta (Also I don't disapprove it, but it's flawed and it should get better)

I was forced to install it with WoWP and it screwed up the launchers for my other games. It has no way to tell what server it is going to start and I had to re write the shortcuts for NA.

When I tried opening a ticket and "customer service" just argued with me saying something like we had no choice.

Why does WG want to make it so we cannot play their games?

When you uninstall the Center, you need to re-link the original.exe to play.
But as soon as a new update comes, you can not update the game anymore.

Unless you reinstall the game center or reinstall the game completely again (without game center).
Therefore, do not install this game center!

I hate it, because i had to reinstall World of Tanks, after linking it and removing the Game Center itself (Because i wanted to try out WoWP again)

This made me so mad at this piece of Software, that i'll stop playing World of Tanks if i'll be forced to use this stupid Launcher!
