You don't have to install the wargaming game center. I still have the old launcher.

Will this re-install the game or just the launcher?

It depends how you install it, but what matters the most is you need to backup the res_packages folder elsewhere because that's where the game files located, the rest is for the client launcher. Action Stations!

It wont touch the res_mods folder at all? That's my main concern

Is the old launcher even removed from the install? Perhaps it's still there.

If you installed via launcher and let WGC merge with it, the launcher will still be there.

WGC is a flawed program currently and is slow to boot up, generate a ton of unnecessary widthband and eat into my old pc ram. It also a big waste if you are only interest in shooting metal bathtube and not tinfoil box or paper planes

I'm with @karrablaster123 . My understanding is that the new launcher is an extra that you have to specifically download. Otherwise wouldn't it be installed when the client is updated?

 

From posts when it was first released,WGC is automatically installed on fresh installs.If you haven't had to reinstall from scratch and haven't downloaded the WGC separately then it doesn't affect the standard launcher.

Do not use WGC, that software is buggy as hell and causes a lot more problem for your system and internet access in general. Just stick to older client till the address and fix the issues.

Instal WGC

Open WGC

Internet is not connected error

Check my Chrome, Internet works no error

Close and re-open WGC

same error

Uninstal

 

Yes, WGGC messes up with ssl signatures and your run into troubles like this. I was so pissed every time I tried using it, I wasn't able to load any https page soon afterwards... Even more pissed when I realized I have to reinstall the whole thing. It's a mess. Should be marked as phishing software IMO..

You don't need to install the whole thing [when using the old launcher] because you only need to delete everything except "res_packages" and save it somewhere because that's where maps and probably everything where it is located, you only simply reinstall the old launcher then it will download the client for I think 5 GB then after that it will download game components, when that happens cancel and close the client because you only need the client download, then copy the "res_packages" that you backed up earlier then the client will not download the entire game anymore.

Yes, that's what I did, it's a re-install nonetheless. I just didn't do full download. But there should be easier option to revert the process.
