So, you are at College, or have an Internet Service Provider which hates any Torrents, and cuts your bandwidth, preventing you from downloading the updates for World of Warships?
Sadly, the new Launcher does not allow for you to turn off Torrents.
Support knows of the issue, but has not posted a work around.
Ard, Niko, and Robots are aware of the issue, and are pushing it up the chain of command. Ard even sent me a thread from WoT EU forum on how they did a workaround.
So, until WG realizes they done goofed, here is the fix for you:
Go to your World of Warships folder.
Find the WoWsLauncher.cfg file. This file is the configuration file for the Launcher. Save a copy of this file to a location you can easily restore it from (such as your desktop) in case you accidentally erase, or mess it up, when you modify it.
Open the file with Notepad.
Change the values for these items:
launcher_transport - change from 3 (allow torrents) to 2 (no torrents.)
display_seeding_mode - change from 0 to 1 (so you can see in the Launcher settings if it is using your bandwidth to update other players' computers.)
seeding_mode change from 1 to 0 ( so it does not seed, or start uploading to other players' computers - using the bandwidth YOU PAY FOR to update other players.)
OPTIONALLY: You may want to change the torrent_ports_begin from 6881 to a bunch of letters, which MAY (not sure) prevent the torrent from having a port to use.
OPTIONALLY: You can also change the max_concurrency from 4 to 1 - possibly preventing the torrents, but may slow down your download. (NOT TESTED!!!)
This is what the guts of the file should look like, without the max_concurrency adjustment:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!--!!!DON'T EDIT, MOVE OR DELETE THIS FILE!!!-->
(Please note: The Forum website shortens urls, so the item with the http address in it is update.worldofwarships followed by .com)
Save that as the WoWsLauncher.cfg file in your World of Warships directory, and Viola! NO TORRENTS.
Make sure you save a backup of the modified .cfg file as the Launcher may replace it, after the update!
Hope this helps.
