Updater Revamp on February 3rd!

Updater Revamp on February 3rd!
2014-01-27 07:00 79
On February 3rd, the Updater will see a few changes coming! On the menu: Improvements, but also evolution on the way it has been offered to you so far. We have scheduled this revamp of the Updater prior to the next game update to ensure that nothing will prevent it to go smooth! However, we are also using this occasion to make some fixes to the game, which are detailed at the bottom of the news.
This revamp of the Updater will automatically be implemented on February 3rd in the afternoon (French time) and will be compatible with all operating systems, therefore you do not have to do anything!
 
At the end of downloading this update you will see the following changes:
 
The progress bar will now display three steps to download the game: "Installation", "Tutorial" and "Full Game", and the Updater will be downloading the necessary files in that order.

Once the "tutorial" step is completed, you will be able to run the game and access the WAKFU tutorial before the full download is finished. This will give you the opportunity to create an Incarnate (or resume an existing Incarnate) to enjoy Incarnam. Note, however, that it will be impossible to leave Incarnam until the download is complete.  
 

On the character selection screen, you will be able to find your non-playable characters. They will be replaced by a progress gauge of the download in progress. This gauge will be included in the upper left corner of your game interfaces to allow you to be informed of the progress of the download at any time. It will also disappear when the download gets to 100%, which will make all the characters on your account available to you and for you to have access to the rest of the World of Twelve, without even having to restart your client.

Important note: It is the Updater which will manage the download of the necessary files. If you close it while you play, or while a download is in progress, it will stop and you will have to restart the Updater for it to finish.
 
Also please note that although this new feature will start on February 3rd in the afternoon (French time), this revamp of the Updater will be also useful for a first installation of the game since it will allow new players to start their adventure earlier, while still be in the process of downloading the game
 
In addition, to accompany these changes, we will make additional fixes to the Updater, especially regarding problems running the game (including some versions of Java 6 on Mac OSX) or for better performance when downloading updates.
 

Additonnal Game Fixes

We will also use this revamp of the Updater to add the following fixes to the game:
 
First Mission: Instead of collecting five logs, one by one, required by the quest, it will be possible to collect all five with just one click.
 
Larva Egg Quest: It will be possible to collect all the eggs at once.
 
Quest Tracker: The interface will remain where you have left it from your last login.
 
Quest Book: It will now be possible to click on a compass button to active or deactivate the arrow or compass quest markers.
 
Environment: The error message received when unable to plant in an area will be slightly improved to clarify that it will be necessary to kill more monsters, or have to go plant a little further to perform this action.
 
Profession Books: They will appear automatically on the screen when learning a new profession.
 
World Map:
  • The markers will no longer disappear if zooming out the map and zooming in again by using the +/- button.
  • There will be only one Mount Zinit boat marker instead of two.
 
Post process: If activated, the visual effect result will be improved. 
 
Shortcuts:
  • It will be possible to use the "Up Arrow" key on your keyboard while in combat.
  • The texts on the shortcut bar will update correctly after a change of shortcuts.
 We invite you to discover this revamp of the Updater on February 3rd, see you there!

Hello! I just simply wanted to tell my experience with the new updates. I downloaded it for the first time being a new user and saw that I could play the Tutorial before the game was fully loaded but wasn't aware that it would still be loading in the background. I was afraid that if I did the tutorial I'd have to let the game load over again and I didn't want that! So I waited instead until the entire game was complete instead. Can you please have a small message pop up somewhere next to the play the tutorial to reassure those who might not have read the update or was unsure that the game will still be loading as they play the tutorial? Thank you.

I'm glad I could help. the idea of the resolution appeared when launched my linux recorded on a memory stick (not LiveUSB only been recorded system) on different computers. I just netbooks have a problem. And then I remembered that once I had the exact same problem when I installed my girlfriend netbook Windows 8 and August MetroUI not want to enable this reason, so the solution in windows I had done. The rest of the quest to solve this problem on linux already helped Internet users in the forums

I found the solution to the problem. If someone has a netbook with a resolution of 1024x600 the game does not start. The system windows 7 you need to change the values ​​in the registry and you can get a higher resolution - the game will run without a problem

Ankama should inform about something so important, right?

I am disgusted, I lost a few days of subscription.

So, now proof, whether the same approach will work on Linux. I'll call you soon to announce the results of

I have spent the night on the solution to this problem, but as I promised, I have a solution


Small tutorial for netbook users who have a problem running the game and the "black screen":

For Linux:

Just download the script and unpack it in any location. It should run and type resolution.
The most optimal to run it 1298x768
I noticed that once you turn on the login screen, you can minimize the window and go back to the orginal resolution.

Link to the script:

Finally, if you are using Windows 7 or 8, and you have a similar problem, just in the system registry Display1_DownScalingSupported find and replace in all the positions of found value from 0 to 1
However, Windows has the impression of a flattened screen

I hope I helped someone

Swanson, thanks so much! I'm running 64-Bit Linux on a netbook and have been mucking around with 32-Bit libraries and Java nonsense since the update, with nothing but black screen to show for it. Resolution was the problem...

Have never had an open issue ticket just completely ignored by a company that's already taken my money before. Been almost a week. NOT AMUSED...

Hi.

Sorry for the delay, but I have answers for you.

If you are unable to relaunch the updater following Monday's update, you can now download the installer again and install the game in the same folder, and your installation will be fixed. No need to uninstall, or download the whole game again.

From now on, the installer will act as a repair tool if you install Wakfu on top of an already existing installation.

Please make sure to always download the latest installer from the website. Using an outdated installer may not work.

Today's minor launch update also fixes a few graphical glitches.

Finally, for the Ubuntu users, the software center version will be updated soon, stay tuned !

Enjoy the game.

Ourson.






Thanks [Ourson]!

Also we recommend that if you still are getting an error message when launching the game to verify that you have all the latest drivers installed on your computer.

Regarding MAC and Linux users, it is also recommended to completely uninstall the game and reinstall it, we are still working on more solutions for these users.

Also thank you everyone for all the reports on this thread and other forums (technical issues for example) they have helped the team to continue working on the fixes.
