I have been noticing of late that the game boot-up and shutdown is taking longer with the WGC now. About 20 to 40 seconds startup and 16 to 25 seconds for a total shutdown. And even when the WGC parameter to shutdown the WGC on exit, It does not do this feature all the time. So many HD writes going on with the game exit. So I started looking around in the logs and found this item: WGC log entry INFO | 1940 | 28 10:27:30.109 | System requirements wasn't met for WOWS.NA.PRODUCTION My basic system info is the following: All software drivers are up to date. The question I have is if my system is too old for WoWS now? Are the posted requirements for client systems not correct? Is the WGC causing more problems than solving them? How will the x64 version of WoWS react to my system setup? Granted my system is six years old, so I am looking for a new system. However am I messed up until I get the new one then? Any advice on the subject matter would be helpful.
By now, the majority of us on the forums, and in the game, know about the WGC, and know that soon it'll be our only option for launching WoWs. There have been many concerns over the last year, and honestly they were justified. However, as of now, those concerns appear to have been addressed. I've installed it, though like most of you, I didn't want to. As of right now, the open WGC client only drives my RAM usage up by .8%. I know many had complaints about excess RAM usage, but I just don't see it. iTunes uses more RAM sitting idle, far more, in the area of 14+% of the RAM, than WGC does. I've gone through all my services and processes, and can find nothing WGC is doing that it shouldn't be, and when it is shut down, it is really shut down, unlike in the past. None of my Internet Security has gone crazy due to the presence of WGC. I understand, WG is a company from across the world, and perhaps for that reason, it's easier to find reasons to not trust them, especially given the way certain things have been handled, at times. However, in this one thing, at least, they appear to have finally gotten it mostly right. Mostly. The fact is, if you want to play, soon this is how it will have to be. I enjoy playing with many of you, and I really don't want you to bail on the game because of this, especially since your concerns have been addressed and fixed, as far as I can see, save one. My one complaint is the same one I've had for a while, and WG, you really need to fix it: The inability to install WGC to the folder of our choice. Most gamers, heck, many people period, these days have multiple drives on their comps, and we sort things onto those drives. We have a system, and we don't like this being forced to put things where we don't want them. Personally, I want all my games and game related things on 1 of 3 drives, split by where the game comes from, and what kind of game it is. I do not, at any time, want them directly on my OS drive, I like my OS drive to be small for a reason. More, if something goes wrong, it's less stuff to have to have fully backed up, it's usually the OS drive that fails, while the other drives remain intact. You've given me no other option, and I have to honestly say, WG, that it really gets under my skin. Maybe some have one drive, maybe some want everything on the OS drive, but at least give us the choice where to put things on our own computers. You own the game, WG, you do not own my computer. Telling me how to access the game, fine, that's your right, honestly, but you don't get to dictate how I use my actual computer. That is a deal breaker. I'm not attacking WG in any way, I'm simply stating the facts. I feel I was as polite as I could be about how I feel. WGC, as a whole, doesn't have the issues it did, it functions as it should, and it isn't doing things it shouldn't anymore. WG isn't stealing our info, isn't breaking any laws, and isn't full of malware. In short, it works, and it's safe. @Femennenly, @Radar_X, or @Gneisenau013 is there in fact a way, a downloadable client, to make this work? Because the client that's available on the website does't even have a prompt, it just installs itself, and boom, it's done. I'm stuck with it on my OS drive, and I do not want it there.
[I received a question regarding getting the Game Center running on a Mac. I don't have one, so I am starting this thread to collect the needed information to develop a Quick Start Guide for new users.] Where does one get the installer for a fresh install of the Game Center for OSX? What are the steps that need to be followed for most users? (We can add significant variations as we run into them. OSX should be pretty consistent system to system, so I hope the variations are minimal.) Thanks for input on this thread. Please limit discussion here to information that will help other players get the software installed and running on their system.
