Captains!

 

The new Mac Wrapper 2.0 is here for World of Warships.

This addresses a couple things:

  • In-game browser and all connected functionality: Clans, Inventory, Players’ profiles
  • For macOS Sierra users: Now WoWS client installs directly into Library and do not back up into iCloud 

 

Below you will find instructions for both clean installs and those who have it already installed. Read the instructions carefully and you will be all set up and ready. 

 

Clean Install:

Thanks, Niko!  And thanks to WG in general for supporting us Mac gamers.  Now I can finally sell all my surplus Magazine Mod 1 upgrades.  Ended up with about 40 of them somehow...

 

I shall update tonight; hopefully it will go smoothly but if not I will dutifully report any issues.

 

Cheers!

The link for the wrapper in the "replacing old client section" appears to have a 502 bad gateway error...

Although fantastic effort nonetheless! More appraisals for WG staffs!

Sorry but I am not that savvy with the different clients but the second link doesn't lead anywhere.

Or can I just use the first link if I want to replace my client?   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Awesome, downloaded, let it install. Didn't require any real update time. Just ran and voila! inventory screen.

 

thank you

1. Tech tree ships should only face +1/-1 match making

2. Premium ships should face +2/-1 match making

3. Divisions should face +2/0 match making (+2/+1 might be fair too)

All of your player info is stored on the WG NA servers, not your personal computer.  So you can uninstall then reinstall the game client, play on different machines, even change between playing on a Mac to a PC, and as long as you log in with the same WG account info, your game progress will be exactly where you left off last time you played.

Yeah I have a Wargaming account, I am just concerned since I have to though a Wrapper to server that it might corrupt my game data stored in Wargaming server since I have had bad past history with Microsoft based software going bananas.

So if I have been playing I assume I use the replacing client or is clean start better?

Will the old 1.x wrapper update to 2.0 automatically? Or is it something we will have too do manually?

Ugh, got a "critical error" while reinstalling. "An unhandled exception is occured. The application will be restarted."

 

Couple of mistakes on that error message :P

Why is it launching the test client?

 

Great, it looks like I'll have to reinstall if I want to play.

Apparently if you have the test client installed, it copies over that instead of the main client?

 

Ugh why does it need to download things again. Am I the only one unhappy with this update?

Yeah the thought has crossed my mind about what would happen if somebody just got into main server and converted the game coding to more Mac friendly coding that still was PC accessible like WOT Blitz is. Not sure why Wargaming does not just program in Unix since they already have to in a Blitz. I think everyone would forgive Wargaming if it took Game down for few hours to convert the code over, and Wargaming in the end would financially benifit thanks to game shutting out the hackers you hear of from time to time.

Is this one actually fixed or do I need to wait a little longer?

Am I better off doing a clean install or an update of the wrapper I have?

 

Thank you for this update.
