The new Interface is Really 10 times worst than the old, something that mentioned again and again at tests but WG as usual hears nobody. (Except the WOW what a cool game !!!!)

The guys who created this needed to erase all the past elements in order to prove that they work on something "new", regardless if it was better or not. :facepalm:

Sad thing is that both modes give useful and useless information, and in most cases they could be merged into one, better stream of info. But not, players are sentenced into what some dev decided be the best.

Of course all of this $hit wouldn't be necessary if there would be just old UI.

You don't have to hold down alt all the time, btw. If you click on the keybind in settings, you can change it between toggle or hold.

If you set Alt UI to toggle, it's another thing you need to pay attention to and it can get messy in protracted fights, such as cap defenses. If it's on-press, it's more easily manageable if you tend to be in the thick of it all the time, which you should be. At least for me. I tested both setups and decided to stay with on-press as it performed better.

Pilots, 

We have released the update 2.0.3 as announced in the support page: https://eu.wargaming...support/news/46

Please read on to find out the content of this update:

 

The "Skies of Albion" event is over. All loot crates earned in battles and purchased with tokens have been opened automatically and their contents have been transferred to player accounts. All players who received operation orders will be able to complete their missions within the next 24 hours. 

 

Aircraft

Dornier Do 17 Z, Junkers Ju 88 A, Dornier Do 217 M, Hawker Hurricane I, Hawker Hurricane II, Hawker Tornado aircraft now can be researched. The branch of German medium bombers starts after Focke-Wulf Fw 57, while the branch of British multirole fighters starts after Blackburn Skua.

Bristol Blenheim Mk.IV (early mod.), Douglas A-26B, and Myasishchev RB-17 bombers can no longer be purchased with tokens. With the release of this update, they become Premium aircraft and will be available for purchase with gold.  

 

Maps and Graphics

"Adriatic" and "Arctic" maps have been visually improved.

Adriatic:

  • Added glaciers in the southeast corner around the refinery.
  • Added swimming whales in various places in the water.
  • Reworked the salt lake area, changed the shape of lakes and also reworked how steam is displayed.
  • Added villages in the eastern part of the map.
  • Added a forest near the military base.

Arctic:

  • Improved the level of detail in the coastal area. Added underwater reefs.
  • Reworked the clouds to add a picturesque touch to the map.
  • Added additional objects in the mountains surrounding the Mining Plant.

 

Improvements and Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a critical error of the game client caused by launching the game with an invalid preferences.xml file.  
  • Added an option to clear the embedded browser cache when the “Launch the game and clear its cached data“ option in Wargaming.net Game Center is selected.   
  • Fixed an error causing the pop-up windows with aircraft characteristics not to appear on the aircraft carousel during the respawn waiting time.  
  • Fixed an error that caused the critical damage taken by the previous aircraft that has been destroyed to be displayed on the module scheme of the new aircraft chosen after the respawn.

 

Get Airborne!

 

Bugs are not fixed , and we still have game crashes ...

Hawker Hurricane Mk II's port wing landing light and red navigation light's covers are missing transparent textures, and are showing some wrong print in their place. 

 

 

Is it a failed file download, or do the rest of you have the same error?

Yep servers down. Apparently they don't even communicate down time with us anymore.

some observations after 450 battles in version 2.0

- why game client crashes so often?

- why game engine is so badly optimized? on 1500€ desktop PC it cant maintain 60fps all time

- why hangar is loading so long?

- why physics and fly model is so fucked up? old one was ok

- why camera is so fucked up? old one was much better

- why planes have lowered flaps in hangar? that is total bullshit

- why during flight the control surfaces are "shaking" ? that is even bigger bullshit

- why wing "evaporate" when plane fly high speed?

- why i need hold ALT key 90% time of the battle to see important information necessary to making good decisions?

- why target markers appears so late? why i cant configure them like in old version?

- why markers no more show amount of HP of target?

- why game client move my cursor in windows, when game is minimized (and battle is loading)?

- why cursor position is not centered when game is returned from minimized state.

- why there is only one artificial horizon? old game had plenty

- why artificial horizon dont have also "radio altimeter"? barometric is good for climbing, but for ground pounding is useless

- why "free rotation" camera (right click) is changing distance? it is confusing when you need look fast in different way during combat

- why there is an aimbot?? evading maneuvers are useless

 

i forgot one thing:

- why you "combine" radar and map - it is useless. As radar it is too big (according to displayed information) and as map is too small.

 

there is more:

- why we still have "multi tier" matchmaking when in every battle are 50%+ bots? you can generate bots as much as you want

- why on one map (same layout) play T3 and also T8? that is a little bit wide range

- why there is no sound when my plane is on fire? that [edited]"narrator" speak bullshits and not important things

- generally sounds are crap - game cant play more like 3 sounds at time, so you simply dont hear half of sounds 

- why plane experience are no more displayed on right side in "plane table"?

- why you remove advanced mouse control settings? i dont like default behavior

- why you remove advanced camera settings? i hate default behavior

- this new plane stats in percentage is also bullshit - this numbers means nothing

- why you remove "compare planes table" from battle?

 

Exactly !!! WHY ??????????????

Not just you, Won't for me either.

 

Lots and lots of script errors in the logs. I'm currently trying a reinstall, just waiting for the download to finish.

 

Edit: It's the preferences.xml file. Back-up your settings by renaming the file and then let the game recreate it on launch.

Thanks a million for this. I'd never have figured it out other than a reinstall, and I ran the WGCheck.exe program to no avail as well. 

 

Makes you wonder if anyone at WG tried playing a game or two before they released this latest patch? Or if there's anyone there at WG EU.

 

I'm thinking of leaving this server to focus my remaining efforts on this title on the NA server- there's little forum activity and the specials seem better at NA. Maybe WG should think of consolidating the player base on one server, and whatever personnel- if any- they still have on WoP to help with a consolidated global forum and marketing efforts. Otherwise 'issue in doubt' as the USMC would say on the game's survival prospects (again!).

An integrity check is available here (I did this but it didn't help, the preferences.xml file turned out to be the problem in my case), but to be more specific on the preferences.xml folder.

 

With Win 10, in File Explorer type %appdata% exactly as this with the % signs. It should take you to your AppData\Roaming folder. There you should see a Wargaming.net folder and within that a World of Warplanes directory. Inside there is the preference.xml file you want to delete (or rename to keep a copy of it- I renamed to preferences.xml.bak for example) so the system recreates the  preferences.xml file. 

 

To recreate it, just start World of Warplanes. You should then see a new preferences.xml file get recreated in the above folder (AppData\Roaming\Wargaming.net\World of Warplanes). Hope this helps.
