    A critical error has been occurred

    While there are some things in that guide that are Win10 specific. Most things are universal. On another note, I would strongly recommend upgrading to Win10 soon.

    A critical error has been occurred

    Always nice when someone can use the search function. However, is there any more information you can give us as to the error like logs or screenshots? Shy of that, check out my troubleshooting guide. In this case, I would focus on Parts 1, 5, 7*, 10,13 and 14. https://warshipnews.blog/2018/06/11/world-of-warships-and-win-10-troubleshooting-guide/ *-As noted in previous posts, delete the preferences.xml file usually found in C:\Games\World_of_Warships. Also, if you have extensions hidden (which is default) you will NOT see the .xml so the file will just be called Preferences. If you are more comfortable knowing that the file is preferences.xml you can enable file extensions in Windows 10 by going to View on the file explorer and check the File name extensions box.

    problems with the game

    It's ipconfig /flushdns And though you should be able to do it without explicit admin rights, if you find the Command Prompt app, and right click, run as administrator, that should help
  4. No worries! Glad I could help!
  5. Flat cables suck IMHO as they don't provide the noise cancellation, particularly over distance, that twisted pairs do. They work well for short distances, but upwards of 20ft, which you will likely experience, and they get noisy. While it might not make a huge difference for home networking, I'm just not a fan. I assume that since you were talking about flat cables, you're going to buy the pre-made ones correct? What might be easier, in that case, though a bit more costly, is to get baseboard cord channel. Make it look tidy and less holes to drill. https://www.homedepot.com/p/CE-TECH-5-ft-1-4-Round-Baseboard-Cord-Channel-White-A60-5W/205849335

    You can try looking through my quick troubleshooting guide and see if anything helps. https://warshipnews.blog/2018/06/11/world-of-warships-and-win-10-troubleshooting-guide/ Another thing that might be useful would be your system specs. If you don't know them, I recommend using a Free program called Speccy. Install it, run it, and go to File Save or Publish Snapshot. Send me the file or link in a PM please so your system information is not made public.
  7. Does your 'office' have carpet or baseboard molding, specifically the rubber kind? You can run a cable along the baseboard without too much issue, unless you have baseboard heaters
  8. Outside of outdated drivers, here are a few things that I would try Cold shutdown to flush memory. Delete the Preferences.xml file in C:\Games\World_of_Warships (will be recreated one you restart the game. You WILL have to redo your settings) Remove any and all modes if you are running them If you are fortunate to have dual monitors, open task manager and sort by network usage. Take note of any application(s) that spikes during disconnects. If you have a regular HDD, take not of the disk usage. Hopefully less than 90%

    problems with the game

    Any changes in firewall or ISP with blocking torrent ports? You can check to see if TCP ports 6881-6889 are open or at least not blocked. Other things to consider are corrupt memory fragments that can be flushed with a cold shutdown, for which you will need to turn off Fast Startup mode in Win 10 You ca also flush your DNS but opening up the run command and typing ipconfig /flushdns I have a full guide that might help as well, certainly with disabling fast startup https://warshipnews.blog/2018/06/11/world-of-warships-and-win-10-troubleshooting-guide/
  10. -35 means a disconnect. Either you've dropped connection to the server or your internet went out. As far as the big spikes go, you can do a few things to check. First, you can check your link speed. If you are wired, you want to see 1Gbps. If you're not, you may have a bad cable. If you're on wireless, go wired if you can. Also worth noting, most ISP supplied routers are crap. The are not capable of supporting high bandwidth applications, especially on wireless, and sometimes don't even have gigabit ports. IF you are using the ISP supplied router, buy your own. Since fiber suppliers rarely use PPoE but rather just dynamic, unplug your old router and plug in the new one. It should work just fine.
  11. This is a known issue with the game, particularly for individuals with lots of ships and captains. I just ran a load test on mine and it was 88 sec. While I have a [edited] 10M DSL connection, my rig is not: i7-7820x 3.6GHz 16GB DDR4 2666 Memory 1TB Samsung 970 EVO NVMe SSD EVGA RTX 2070 Super

    No actually, but I will look into it. Thank you

    Know Your (Ship) Role

    The guide has been updated with the information that I have available AND can publish. If I missed something let me know
  14. SnipeySnipes

    Can someone please help me?

    Can you post a screenshot if it's screenshotable?

    Know Your (Ship) Role

    I didn't miss them, they just didn't exist at the time of originally writing this article - which I know does need updating.
