Desktop Icon problems in 4K
freggo posted a topic in General Game DiscussionI run Windows and WOWs in 4K and since the last update my Desktop icons get all rearranged when I shut down WOWs. Does not happen every time but maybe 40%. Also the game center in 4K is tiny. Resizing woks but again, after shutting down the game client the Game Center resizes to postage stamp (ok, a big postage stamp). Anybody had this issue? Game otherwise runs fine without crashes except to usual short port screen freezes which are going on forever both in 4k and 1080. And yes, all drivers are up to date :-)
Why did Ships of the Line have windows in the stern?
Royeaux posted a topic in TallshipsIt occurs to that the old wooden Man-O-War ships had a critical weakness in the rear. If a enemy ship could get behind and rake her with cannonfire, the damage would be tremendous. So that makes me question why they didn't heavily armor the stern of these old warships? A thin layer of glass was no defence against cannonshot so why didn't they just slap on 3 feet worth of armor on the stern instead? Did the windows have a function that I am not familiar with? The feature seemed to be dropped by the Pre-Dreadnought era though. Even the Ironclads had windows in the back.
Windows 10 Performance During Game Update
PigBot50 posted a topic in Game Support and Bug ReportingWhenever WOWs downloads a new update on my PC the Windows UI (mouse pointing) etc. gets very unresponsive (during the update process). Basically I can't browse the internet during the download. It's probably more of a Windows issue than WOWs but does this happen to anybody else? My internet is only 8mb down but I have a powerful PC with tons of memory and a good CPU. You would think my PC would be powerful enough to handle the mouse positioning during a WOWs update (but it can't). Basically I can't use my PC during a WOWs download. Once the download is done, poof, everything is back to normal. Anybody else experience this?
