    WoWS Mac Wrapper Bugs and Feedback Thread

    I agree with a lot of your points. In the past I was really raking WG over the coals about their absolute indifference to Mac players. I have been in many, many startups and small companies. Maybe this has made me a little more tolerant of WG when the company has started putting effort into fixing the issues. You can argue that I am being too lenient. I would encourage you to continue to criticize the results, because in the end results are the only thing that matter. I, personally, am recognizing that *finally* WG management is putting real resources into addressing the problem. I know that long ignored problems are as you said "bigger than I would've thought" I expect that entire modules had to be redone, data structures and hacks ripped out. We went years with only small changes in the Mac client. All those years of neglect left a mess behind. If I was to hazard a guess, I suspect the conversation at WG went like this: 2016... Developer: I can do a quick port to Mac. Look at this PoC. Product Manager: Ship the PoC and see if there are enough Mac players. 2017... Developer: We have Mac Players, can I improve the Mac Client? PM: No. But I like their money 2018... Developer: ? PM: No, we need the CV rework... 2019... Developer: ? PM: No, ..... holy sh!t .... our revenue started dropping!! The Mac players stopped buying and playing... wth? Developer: I told you the Mac client was broken. PM: Well just make it work. Developer: I tried. PM: Try harder. Developer: You want the Mac players here is 1 month of work needed ....(April 2019) Developer: Problem is worse than expected. Our fix broke something else. PM: Mac player population has dropped 50% ! Tell me what you need. Call in the consultants! .... PM / Developer: Tiger team formed! Once more into the breach. ..... @d_gladkov Am I about right :-) ?

    I understand -- I used to think that there was no hope in this regards. (If you care to, go look at my previous posts - I was quite harsh on WG). However, as a professional SW developer - I can say that WG developers are really stepping up recently. Your statement about WINE is missing a number of possibilities including the probability that WG is starting to bypass parts of the WINE system. As a software developer, that is what I would do. Use WINE for low load/low value situations and bypass the extra abstraction layers to go directly to the Mac hardware when the need is there for speed/performance. The Strangler Pattern ( https://www.michielrook.nl/2016/11/strangler-pattern-practice/ ) is an industry standard way of upgrading away from a legacy solution..... .... given enough legacy solutions I have seen strangler patterns on strangler patterns :-) that is always some variation of "fun"

    As a general note of encouragement - I had a long period when Wows was unplayable on my Mac. (April-May). It is now significantly better. 1 crash every ~8 games. there is hope

    Then where are your crash reports so WG can fix the crashes? Seriously, WG is responding IF they get the data needed.

    Bugs like this can be hard. I do know that @d_gladkov and I are having a conversation that is responsive. I am sending crash files directly to them - I am getting a response. I am using a test build that is generating logs. All good steps toward a long term fix. WG is no longer hiding from the problem. Collect the crash files so they have the data they need.
  15. Lol -- I only have time for 1 game in my life. Even then i am questioning the amount of effort.
