Wargaming "Game Center" looks zoomed in

Went to play WOWS...    Clicked on the icon automatically the game center opens, and I usally click "Play" but for some reason the "Game Center" looks zoomed in, and I can't even seen half/3/4's of the content.  No visible play button or anything useful, let alone most of the prem. shop ad's. 

Is there a way to zoom OUT of the game center, so that you can see the whole thing. I have no idea how it got like this. I've shut down and restarted, and no fix.   Sorry if this sounds confusing....  i feel like the old "Shift Mouswheel" zoom should work on it, but no dice.   

 

Anyone else have this issue? 

Now I have no way to click on "Play" and go play the game.

Deleted game center, clicked on the "World of Warships" game icon.. Pop up...  "Wargaming Game Center is now required"  so now I have to reinstall that POS.

I fixed it. I deleted the old WOWS Icon which apparently linked THROUGH the game Center.   Then i went into the "F:games/wargmaing/Worldofwaships" folder, and created a shortcut linked to the "Worldofwarships.exe" folder, and put that on my desktop.   Screw that game center.  I hate that POS.

Good on you, getting rid of that cancerous tumor.

Unfortunately, the game has a bad habit of developing horrible bugs and issues with framerate/ping/etc., sometimes necessitating a reinstall of WoWS and, in some cases, a complete reset to a system restore point from before installing the Game Center. This happened to my clan XO, when it almost completely screwed up his entire gaming PC.

Seriously WG, there is no excuse for unleashing such an unmitigated disaster upon your customer base.

I run C:\Games\World_of_Warships\WorldOfWarships.exe directly. The only reason to run the launcher is if you want to access the functions it specifically has, like the file integrity checker or update settings.

I was running the game center, because it does the downloads and installs the updates the night before they are released to the public. That way come setver up time, i don't have to go through all the download and installs, they are already there, and ready to go.    But after the trouble ive ran into with it, I don't think i'll bother with it anymore.   Wargaming is slowly but surely doing their DAMNEST to get rid of me as a customer... i have no clue why!?!  Im not a great player, but I am a collector, so I spend a MINT on prem. vehicles bettween World of Tanks where I have like 63 prem vehicles.  World Of Airplanes, 10, and world of warships. 5.  Youd think they would care more about keeping their golden geese from getting bugs and stuff. LoL

Or you could use the old installer that doesn't use WGC,

 

WoWS_internet_install_na.zip

Thank you Sir! I didn't even know about this.  Only been playing Since Feb 2nd.  Much appreciated.

You're quite welcome.

 

I have it saved in several places just in case.

 

P.S. if you ever decide to install WoWP all bets are off as unless they have changed things, WGC is required/mandatory for it.

That is where my issues are coming from then.   I have World of Tanks,  World of Warships,  and World of Warplanes, as well as WOT's Blitz all installed on this PC.

I have the WoWs that 'requires' WGC and just use the exe for WoWs directly with no issues - not even a need to fire up WGC except to patch.
